“A great secluded holiday home that pets can use as well”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We arrive to see a picturesque 3 story building on a plot next to the main house. with ample parking.
Inside I was taken back by how clean and fresh the house was, the decor spot on,. over the 3 floors you have 2 bedrooms, the living area and a well laid out kitchen with all the amenities you need. including wi-fi tv dab radio, log burner dishwasher, washing machine etc.
The garden was huge with areas to sit in the morning and evening sunshine,
The best part is how quiet it is here a great place to relax and chill out

“Beautiful place to stay, couldn't ask for more!”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Great Lilly Cottage is a fabulous place to stay. We have two young children with us and they didn't want to leave! We was greeted by a wonderful cream team as well as some other special treats! Great Lilly is split over three floors and it was immaculate and very tastefully decorated. The location is perfect set within Goodleigh village with its cosy pub and wonderful contryside views, but 5 mins away is Barnstaple town centre proving supermarkets, museum, pubs and restaurants. Ali and Kate the owners really looked after us and answered all our questions about the area. I would highly recommend Great Lilly Cottage to anyone looking for a place to stay. We had a lovely day at the Saunton beach which was only 20 minutes away! Thank you Kate & Ali for all your help and advice. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Very comfortable cottage with large private garden and areas to sit out and enjoy the local country views. All decor and furnishings were well thought out, only the shower to update!
