“Comfortable, elegant, practical, restful and delightful family accommodation”
Reviewed 5 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Buttery offers perfect accommodation for parents with a large flexible party of young people in their twenties. There are plenty of spaces to chill. We all love the spacious balcony, especially for a long lazy breakfast in the sun and shelter after an energetic cliff run to Bull Point and back via Morte Point, or an early morning dunes bootcamp, or surf, or swim. And lunch in the sun. And the downstairs sitting room and the main bedroom balcony are lovely for sun and afternoon tea. The pub is good for a drink and the cream teas are very popular. The shop has everything you need, especially breakfast croissants. And a supper of fish and chips is a must, but they also sell very good fish to cook at home. So, if you want to relax and enjoy plenty of outdoor activity, this is perfect accommodation. Oh, and drying facilities are excellent.

“A perfect place for teenagers and parents to have fun, enjoy and hide from the hustle and bustle of busy lives.”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The house is exceptionally spacious and light and as a family with two teenage children everyone was very happy being able to hide in their own space. The lounge turned into an x-box room when it was wet or early in the morning and our kids enjoyed having their own spacious rooms.I was very happy to escape on coastal walks, and the drive down to the beach with a load of wet suits and body boards was very quick and easy. The beach is fantastic- and the waves great for body boarding!
The location of the house is perfect- opposite a pub with great food, and very close to a great home made takeaway food place and fish and chips.

Liked best: The communication and comfortable beds and the newness of everything.
Liked least: Parking only had one space and no outdoor space- but the balance of position of house outweighed this,

“The Buttery was a fantastic base for a wonderful holiday”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Upon our arrival at the Buttery the whole group (3 years-54 years) were really pleased with the accomodation. The children loved the toys and bunk beds, whilst my teenage daughter loved the 'den' bedroom with the double futon as it gave her privacy and a massive TV to watch all week. The Buttery kitchen became the adults evening drinking venue and also had everything you could ever need for preparing meals for a large group. The wetsuit drainer in the the utility was well used and stopped everything else getting wet.

The pub over the road; the Chicester we found served the best food and drink. Also the Beach Cafe on Barricane Beach was really good.

The owners were extremely helpful and attentive to our queries; I would definately recommend the Buttery and very much hope to return.

“Great house in a fabulous location”

Large, well equipped and well furnished house within walking distance of beaches and set in a small village with good facilities, including pubs and shops. Fantastic coastal and inland walks on the door-step.

“Amazing Holiday - Can't Wait To Come Again”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A group of 9 of us stayed here at The Buttery as a holiday to celebrate the end of our university term. All of us agree it was a better week than any of us could have imagined - we were unbelievably lucky with the weather, with sun nearly every day - but even on the first day, which was foggy and wet, we had a fantastic time. The house is beautiful, very well equipped and spacious - not only does it sleep ten, but also accommodates them well, so all of us could sit around inside happily without any treading on toes! The views are also spectacular from here. As stated, the beach is only 20 minutes walk away - closer, if you feel like clambering over some rocks - and Barricane Beach is the closest to the house, which we found just as beautiful, but much less crowded on warmer days, than Woolacombe. The village is lovely, with pubs, takeaways and corner shops available to meet our every need.

On top of everything else, the owner Dominic was incredibly helpful and friendly, and always replied to all our questions and queries quickly.
