Lets face it life can be a bit boring sometimes can't it!  No matter how much you try to brighten up each day, it can be hard work and the days (and weeks) do tend to roll on into each other...even the summer holidays can be a trial and it's hard work to keep the kids entertained constantly...well here's the chance to change all that and create a weeks worth of memories which will last a lifetime.....
We invite you to come and stay in our lovely cottage which just happens to be in the most beautiful part of the country...(not just our opinion!)  Stunning, gorgeous amazing North Devon...the most amazing beaches...golden sands which stretch on for miles and miles.  Stunning coastal scenery with meandering paths and breathtaking views...Twinkling sparkling seas which invite you in for cool relaxing swims or fun in the surf!  Quaint villages full of history and chocolatebox cottages...wild and remote moorland where you can really escape from it all... North Devon has everything for everybody...and here's what you might like to do to make every day count...

Day one: Chill out and relax...pack a yummy packed lunch and set off for one of the 3 most beautiful beaches in the country just down the road.  If it's sunny catch some rays and have a splash in the surf...if it's not so sunny take wellies and splash in the rockpools...fill your lungs with the fresh sea air...
Day two: Visit the best place on the planet...Watersmeet near Lynmouth...walk the well trodden path along the meandering river from Lynmouth to the National Trust café and sample the best cream tea and treacle tart in the country.  Let the kids swim and jump in the Huckberry Finn used to do...
Day three: Try sea kayaking or coasteering at the stunning Watermouth Cove, a boat trip or a quiet spot of fishing.  You may be lucky enough to see the dolphins...
Day four: Take a trip to the amazingly quaint fishing village of Clovelly...with it's cobbly streets and donkeys which take you up and down...try crabbing off the harbour wall and enjoy moules marinere with a glass of wine...
Day five: What about a day of fun for the kids in one of our fantastic local venues...Watermouth Castle, The Big Sheep, The Milky Way, Combe Martin Wildlife and DinosaurPark or Exmoor Zoo...the smiles on their faces will be priceless...
Day six: You ought to go back to the beach as there are at least 3 amazing ones...Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe and there is just so much to see and do.  You could try your hand at surfing or body boarding...once the wetsuits are on you can be in there for hours...later have a BBQ on the beach and a few beers...
Day Seven: Home again...chilled, relaxed and happy with the biggest smile on your face...

You and your family will never forget these precious memories...they will last a lifetime...

Hi Debbie and Sean

We had a great week the cottage was lovely very clean and comfortable. The garden is a real sun trap and were able to eat alfresco most days. Weather could not of been better...what a result!!
My grandchildren really enjoyed themselves there was so much for them to do. No problem with parking and all amenities only a short stroll away.

Thank you for the Devon cream tea it was very much appreciated.

Best wishes

Suzanne and John Terry
