Beautiful views from the lovely cosy cottage which was clean and tidy. Everything you need and a fabulous walk in the woods. Lovely and understanding owners who greeted us on arrival. Very pet friendly.

“Wow just a great place to stay with your dogs”
Reviewed 15 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed here with our 5 dogs to escape the fireworks. We were made to feel so welcome and relaxed with our dogs, Ali and Tim are really great hosts. They come to introduce themselves and then left you to enjoy. The barn was very clean and comfortable, I loved the cosy sitting area. There was pleny of room in the kitchen/dinning area to store all the dogs food and things!! Even with 5 dogs there was plenty of space. The barn was tastefully decorated, lots of thought has gone into usage of space. the woods are great for running your dogs in the morning. The views are awesome. We have already booked to go back next year. Well done Ali & Tim and thanks for a great stay

“What a wonderful getaway for us and the dogs.”
Reviewed 14 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have two springers and wanted a real getaway with them, relaxing and going on lovely walks. Owl cottage was perfect. Although the description says it's the smallest cottage it's actually a really lovely size and would happily house 4 people and multiple dogs. It's cosy and clean, with everything we could have needed. The field right outside the door is great, the dogs can go straight out to play. The resident dogs were lovely and my two had a great time with them. We asked some advice from the owners as to where to take the dogs and visited some lovely places. I would absolutely recommend owl cottage as a gorgeous little dog friendly get away.

“A wonderful relaxing holiday, very peaceful with glorious views.”
Reviewed 1 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

A wonderful relaxing holiday, very peaceful with glorious views. Owl cottage was furnished beautifully and the pictures and ceramics added a lovely touch. The wooded area was very well explored by our over excited labrador who seemed to enjoy the break away as much as we did. We would definately go back and stay again.
Thank you to Alison and Tim who maintained the cottages and the walk to make it such a joy to be there.

Warm and cosy and in a beautiful location, the woodland area was perfect for short walks for the dog . Ideally situated for touring north Devon.
