Thoroughly enjoyed a 5 day break here despite predominently inclement weather. Cottage ideal for 2 with equipment and facilities excellent. Nice touch was inclusion of things like Dishwasher powder, cling film, wash liquid, spices which in many self catering places you have to take yourself. The Cottage (Honeysuckle) had a wood burning stove that was very nice to sit round... More

Have just spent a lovely family holiday at Downe Cottages, (our third visit). The cottage was great, Jeremy and Lynda provide everything you need if you are traveling with babies. Everything, as always was immaculate and well presented. Nicely in keeping with the area and the buildings. We had fantastic weather and our son loved playing in the playing fields... More

We have been to Downe 3 times in the last 2 years - in rainy October and glorious July and every time we ask our little boy where he wants to go he says "My Cottage". This is very helpful as we both love visiting the area and staying in the cottages. We are about to book again for July... More

Charmingly situated they have glorious sea views looking north to Lundy Island and west over the Atlantic.They are set in the midst of rolling farm land that slopes gently to the coast. In the distance the stone tower of St. Nectan's Church rises above the picturesque village of Stoke..

Hartland, an unspoilt North Devon village, is a mile away.The immediate area is ideal for walkers and cyclists with a maze of footpaths and single tract lanes on the doorstep.
