A lovely cottage in a quiet village. The contact Tania was very helpful. The cottage is warm due to the Aga. There were lovely fish and chips from a visiting van to the village on a Monday evening. The local shop was also useful. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

Country cottage getaway!

Thank you, it was so nice to escape and snuggle in at the cottage, especially by the fire on the cold nights of Winter. We look forward to returning...

Thanks for the stay, it was a brilliant base for us

Great location for our stay to take long walks at Woolacombe and to catch a surf at Saunton. Good amount of space for us, our dog and baby. The local shop is well stocked and open until 6. Comfortable bed and private shutter blinds throughout.

What a beautiful cottage to stay in.

The owners have thought of everything, and we loved it that there was milk in the fridge for a cup of tea after a long journey!  A beautiful, well thought out home which has been put together with love. The owner has really anticipated everything a guest might need.

The cottage is amazing

It offers great space and the kitchen really is the hub of the whole house. The garden is delightful and there is a park opposite the cottage which was perfect for the dog! Would love to come and stay every year.

Second Visit to Church Cottage !

This was our 2nd stay at Church Cottage! We love it! We came down in September and fell in love with the cottage and area, so much so we have just come back from another week and intend on going back in January. Perfect local for all the beaches and then set in a lovely quiet village. The pub is 30 seconds from the door. Amazing!!

A lovey place to stay, very clean and great setting not far from the beach/coast. The court yard/garden wasn't massive but fine for sitting outside/bbq.

New Year

House is really comfortable and comes with lots of pans and utensils for cooking up a family meal. Toys for kids also definitely entertained our little ones. We really liked the location in the village which is a good jumping spot to lots nearby.
