About Sue Francis
Terry and I moved here three years ago from Buckinghamshire where we'd spent our entire lives. Joined by my grown up daughter Gem and our Springer Pearl, we escaped to the country and away from the busy South East. Having scoured many other counties with our wish list in hand, we finally settled on North Devon for it's unspoilt and not quite discovered yet feel, it's friendly folk who always have time for you and of course the wonderful countryside and coastline. We haven't looked back!
Sue Francis purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Sue Francis chose Barnstaple
We chose Hakeford for it's rural, yet easily accessible location (we didn't fancy negotiating very narrow lanes every day!) We hope holiday guests will also appreciate the ease of which they can to and fro whilst exploring this beautiful part of the country.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Ideal from start to finish!
A luxury cottage on the edge of the woods on a quiet lane with great access to all that North Devon has to offer - Ideal!
Everything (and we mean everything) that you could want is provided, the lodge is spotlessly clean, well decorated and very, very comfortable. The welcome was warm, the eggs from the resident chickens first rate and the scones that were awaiting our arrival (with clotted cream of course) superb. We wanted for nothing and had everything - isn’t that why we go on holiday?
Many thanks Sue and Terry, you made a good week great!
