“Perfect cottage which contained absolutely everything we required.”

We had a fantastic holiday - possibly our best ever! We are grandparents and were accompanied on our trip by our son and daughter-in-law and 3 year old granddaughter. We all had a brilliant time, which was greatly assisted by the lovely cottage we had as our base and the warm welcome we received (Flowers, chocolates, wine, cream scones and milk in the fridge). The cottage is in an excellent position for walking or visiting the many local places of interest and beauty. Everything you could think of was provided, and as well as all of the standard thing to be expected , there were also: DVDs, CDs, books, toys and games. We woke each day to see many varieties of birds feeding outside (nuts in hangers were provided) . Our host was excellent, ensuring we were well catered fro without encroaching on our privacy. We could not have wished for more and although we do not usually holiday in the same place twice we are already considering making a return visit to Shipload Cottage. :)

I am really delighted that you enjoyed what you describe as possibly, "our best holiday ever". We do try to keep the cottages equipped with little extras for the evening; such as the books, DVDs and board games. I hope that you will visit us for a second time. Kind regards, Martin.

“Fabulous place”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Shipload cottage is ideally located to explore the area which we did, yet peaceful enough to relax of an evening. It is a well equipped cottage and was very clean. The welcome pack of wine, chocolates, flowers, scones and cream added an extra touch of hospitality. We visited: Hartland, RMB Chivenor, Appledore, Instow, Lynton, Lynmouth, Bude, Sandymouth bay, Clovelly, Barnstable, other beaches and coves and Watersmeet falls all relatively close. We appreciated a laundry room on the couple of wet days we had. Thank you Martin for your kind regards

We will definitely be back
