A very special place

  • 5 of 5

If you really want to get away from it all, this is the place. Very comfortable cottage with everything you might need as well as beautiful gardens and several outside sitting areas. Steps from the Southwest Coastal Path with beautiful sweeping views of the Bristol Channel and cliffs. Absolute quiet except for the buzzing of bees pollinating the purple heather covering the hills. At night one can see the Milky Way and thousands of stars! We stayed 4 nights which simply wasn't long enough.

The cottage is in a remote area so be prepared to drive distances to restaurants, stores, etc. on some very narrow roads. We did get a flat tire the day we were leaving and it wasn't possible to get the rental company to arrive in a timely fashion, but Gordon was nice enough to help us change the tire and we wetecon our way. Thank you Gordon! And thank you, Sarah for a lovely time.

Beautiful holiday cottage in a fantastic, peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, modern, well-appointed holiday cottage with wonderful views (on a clear day!) across the Bristol Channel to Swansea and Gower. Coastal Path Cottage is in a very peaceful location. Sarah and Gordon were wonderful hosts, making us feel very welcome in an unobtrusive way - there if we needed them, but otherwise left us to enjoy the property and gardens to ourselves. A wide variety of things to do for all ages nearby ranging from walks along the spectacular coastal path, wonderful beaches and the picturesque coastal towns of Ilfracombe and Lynmouth. We had a fabulous stay where we were able to completely unwind - making coming back to work all the harder!

Coastal Path Cottage Review

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was special for many reasons. The accommodation was very spacious, comfortable, & equipped to a very high standard, & included Sky Sports & Movies. The location was ideal for me as it was central to the Exmoor coastal path from Minehead in the East & to Morte Point & Woolacombe Bay in the West. With spectacular scenic walks for me & "Charlie", the cottage, with it's beautiful enclosed gardens, was a great place to return to & relax after a long day's walk up & down the steep paths. Thank you Sarah & Gordon for a memorable stay in an extremely dog friendly environment. Would highly recommend.
