We stayed at Thatchers Hideaway for three nights over a bank holiday weekend, and we couldn't have asked for a more ideal rental property.
The location is perfect, tucked out of the way to be nice and quiet but only a short stroll into the village (it's hard to find the first time so make sure you follow the instructions you get sent once you've booked). We stayed with our two dogs and I loved that we could step out of the front door and follow the lane up and onto countryside for a walk over to Saunton Sands. Also, just across the road is another bridleway which you can follow to walk to Putsborough Beach and Woolacombe.
The property was very clean and comfortable and kitted out with everything you need - salt, pepper, TV, Wifi, Playstation and games, even a few tea bags and some coffee. Only thing they could have done with is some washing up liquid and a few more toilet rolls (although I realise that these aren't always provided with a lot of rentals). Like a lot of the local rental properties there is a keysafe meaning you can turn up on the day of arrival at anytime.
The information pack that had been carefully put together by the property owners was really useful and had lots of local information (also quite amusing).
There was an open fire, which we didn't actually need to use because the central heating was nice and warm (so nice to stay somewhere where you're allowed to changed the thermostat!).
If there was any downside to this property, it would only be that because it's on the end of a terrace of three cottages, you get the neighbours in the rental cottage next door walking past the windows - bit of a pain when our dogs love to bark at 'trespassers'!
