“Absolutely perfect ...”
Reviewed 16 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

A family of 4, we stayed in Wykeham Cottage for just over a week in early September.

The cottage was beautifully decorated, with an interior that looked straight out of English country homes magazine. Very comfortable indeed.

Our sons both enjoy running around, so having the large shared lawn area at the front of the cottage was perfect to burn off excess energy. There was a large garage with an assortment of golf clubs and a table tennis table available also.

There are a number of lovely beaches, rock pools and an endless number of walks to do along the coast here. Our sons loved Rockham Beach. The rock pools provided endless enjoyment for us all.

Close to Mortehoe is a town called Braunton, and an award winning fish and chip restaurant called Squires. If you are able, then take the time to visit for an evening meal.

Thee are a number of bus services to Ilfracombe and Barnstaple also, approx 5 pounds for a return ticket. The bus ride itself was an experience!

Would return to a Wykeham Cottage at the Old Vicarage in a heartbeat. Loved our stay!

“Good Value For Money In A Beautiful Village”
Reviewed 11 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

There were a couple of not so good points with this cottage which were disappointing so lets get them out of the way first; the double bed is not very comfortable and some of the linen whilst clean and freshly laundered had a few stains - perhaps time to replace them! The good points however were numerous, out balanced the bad and I'll cover some of them here. A welcome pack of scones, local jam and clotted cream were a delight after the 200 mile journey here. A beautiful garden surrounds the property with plenty of off road parking and Wykeham Cottage has it's own garden with picnic bench too. The log burner was a welcomed feature on the cooler evenings with a generous supply of logs to keep you warm and comfortable. There's plenty of space in the cottage and the layout has been well thought through. This is the lesser of the three properties on the site and next time we might book the Mailscot Cottage if it's available mainly for the views of the back garden which Wykeham doesn't have. We would stay again. The location is superb with the Post Office, Village Stores and Ship Aground Pub & Restaurant all within a couple of minutes walk. There'a also a popular chip shop, a takeaway and tea rooms in the village which we didn't get to go to. It's a few minutes walk from the coastal path and a great base from which to explore the local countryside. If it's 5 star accommodation you want look elsewhere but if you want 3-4star at 3 star prices look no further.

Thank you for this review, very useful feedback. We always endeavour to check linen is fully clean and stain-free before it goes on, so apologies for missing this. We will also be checking mattresses and replacing any that are uncomfortable or in need of replacing. Glad you had a nice break otherwise and look forward to welcoming you back in future.
