Lovely time here in Goodleigh, enjoyed the food at The New Inn. Very well equipped cottage and comfy beds; enjoyed your board game Pay Day!
What a quaint little cottage, full of character and charm, very relaxing and utterly delightful. Our stay here was really lovely ... a perfect base for touring some hidden treasures of North Devon, especially Clovelly ... Thank you
Beautiful cottage, have loved every minute. All well explained in the instruction manuals ... enjoyed going to Woolacombe and Appledore ... the leaflets helped us decide where to go
Another brilliant holiday at Rock Cottage! This year we enjoyed several amazing meals at the pub - even the rain couldn't ruin our holiday! Back next year!
Rock Cottage home from home! Saunton Sands, Barricane, Puttsborough, Woolacombe, Illfracombe done! Great walks, good weather and here's looking forward to next year!
An excellent week with great welcoming cottage, kind host and lovely countryside and coast to entertain us - we have loved it!
We have enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing week at Rock Cottage, very welcoming and comfortable. Great food at The New Inn. Thank you.
We had an excellent week staying in Rock Cottage, the weather was great and the cottage had everything we needed. The location was perfect for walking 100 miles of the Coastal Path.
I feel bad that I have to go to work in London. I had an amazing and relaxing time here. Thank you for letting me be part of this lovely magical world! Also, thank you for allowing me to make this place home of my favourite, personal song! Thank you for your hospitality, kindness and care. Hope to come back here again.
Exactly what I hoped for – warm, cosy and comfortable, and everything I needed. Sadly too busy to visit the village pub, but will definitely return … thanks for everything.
We do not want to leave Rock Cottage! Fantastic place to stay and relax after a hectic Christmas, battery’s recharged. If you cycle, go on the Tarka Trail at Fremington and the Café is very good. Great walks around Hartland and Morthoe. Thanks for everything Perter & Suzanne, recommended everyone to stay here.
Lovely cottage with all necessary amenities. The wood burner was a huge like. Food at The New Inn was excellent. We also found The Pyne Arms as East Down served an amazing Sunday lunch. We will be back!
Informative and friendly welcome from Peter! Lovely cosy cottage - made the most of the wood burner with the patchy weather. Excellent food at the New Inn and also the Pier House in Westward Ho! A place to recommend.
A very belated visit this year - thoughts of moving to Devon in near future. Lovely visit to Broomhill Sculpture Garden with lunch, worth going just for the cherry chocolate brownie. Yum.
Really restful. Brilliant place for resting and sleeping with comfortable beds and blackout blinds. Great body boarding at Saunton Sands and cycling on the Tarka Trail. Teen age boys enjoyed their time here and internet access.
Wonderful cottage and stay. Thank you.
Thank you for letting us stay at your fantastic cottage, we has a great time. Shame you couldn't fix the weather as well. You gave us a warm welcome which made a great start. With long walk and lovely beaches. Thanks again.
Rock Cottage has made a very lovely base for visiting old haunts and visiting some new ones. Dartmoor to Ilfracombe and a good Gluten Free fish n chip at Kilkhampton, then a quick drive to Duckpool to eat them. For some useful information for any is (Gluten Free) The Butchers Row shops bakery does bread and scones so you can still have your Cream Tea!
Lovely cottage, comfy and well-equipped. We recommend the walks from Heddon Valley to Woody Bay and Lynmouth to Watersmeet - a cream tea there is a must. If you wish to explore Exmoor and see wildlife and red deer, you can’t do better than Red Stag Safari - interesting, informative, hugely enjoyable and a wonderful guide. RHS Rosemoor is worth a visit, great food and veg garden. The New Inn is a must - do book.
Lynton railway to Lynmouth and then a riverside walk to Watersmeet is lovely and there is a very good Café there too! Definitely recommend the New Inn but make sure you book! The cottage has everything you need. Thanks.
Lovely week at Rock Cottage. Great food at the New Inn. Also Marwood Hill Gardens and RHS Rosemoor well worth a visit. Many thanks.
Beautiful and cosy cottage I an outstanding landscape! Weather was great so we could enjoy the days out: Exmoor, the sea at Bude, Heartland Point and Woolacombe and also the little villages (and car boot sales) between. Many thanks!
What a truly lovely cottage and such a friendly welcome on arrival. Would recommend the local pub as again, a super welcome received. Such a shame time goes too fast.
Time gone by too quickly. We really enjoyed our break. Lovely Cottage.
Had a lovely stay at Rock Cottage. Well equipped, good location and the pub is great too. Thank you!!!
We have had a wonderful time here at Rock Cottage, surfing, riding, eating, drinking all with the backdrop of a beautiful and homely cottage. Thanks everso. F&Hx
Thanks. We have had a great week at Rock Cottage exploring North Devon and riding the Tarka Trail.
Thank-you for a super stay at Rock Cottage. We have had a great week exploring Devon and relaxing at the cottage. Such a well located place to stay with everything you could need.
We have been given extraordinary weather this week allowing us to do a variety of activities, hiking trips, a visit to the Sculpture Garden and much more. Rock Cottage has been clean, well equipped, but mainly gorgeous.
We booked very late - only 2 days notice but we have been very happy here - it's beautiful with everything we have needed. Our highlight was the trip to Lundy - a calm day. It was wonderful. Thank you.
The perfect place to return to after walking 16 miles in the Exmoor Perambulation. Looking forward to repeating next year …. There is nowhere I would rather be!
Dear Rock Cottage, we had a wonderful time with you. You are a beautiful home, cozy and charming! We also enjoyed the many trips & walks in the North Devon Region! Thankyou, Rock Cottage really rocks!
A perfect location for our bell ringing tour. Very comfortable cottage.
We had a lovely week, thank you! Great food at the New Inn, and fun times exploring Exmoor and the North Devon Coast.
Rock Cottage is cosy and picturesque and lived up to our high expectations. The area is very beautiful and there's so much to see and do within easy reach. Some high points for us were the Sculpture Park Broomhill, Hartland Abbey and Woolacombe Beach.
Some lovely memories - circular Goodleigh walk, Clovelly - eating Cornish pasties in the sun, playing beach bats at Instow, toasting marshmallows etc. Thanks for lovely cottage.
We were all delighted with this adorable little old cottage. We found it to be very comfortable indeed. A lovely place to return to after a day of exploring. A big thank you to Peter for helping us out.
Love coming to Rock Cottage. So cosy. This time brought bike and cycled to Torrington on the Tarka Trail.
Beautiful character cottage in a lovely quiet location. Perfect for a week whilst on holiday from New Zealand. Everything you could possibly want - love to come back!
Myself and David want to express our huge thanks for letting us stay at Rock Cottage over Christmas. It was everything we had hoped for and more! The cottage is just beautiful, and I was delighted at still having a real tree, even away from home. We brushed up on our Scrabble skills and David took much male enjoyment from burning the fire.
We thoroughly loved popping into The New Inn and chatting to the locals and the owners who were extremely welcoming.
Lovely warm welcome. Great cottage, very cosy with everything you could need. Had a fantastic stay and would defo recommend the New Inn!
Very relaxing weekend. Home from home: cosy, comfy and a warm welcome. Good food at New Inn. Thank you.
We love our annual visit to Rock Cottage. The new kitchen layout works well with the dishwasher. This year we went to Clovelly, which is lovely except for the visitor centre. We also visited the most wonderful garden, Marwood Hill, only 25 minutes car journey away, it is magical. Good tea room too. Thank you very much, and see you next year.
Lovely cottage and very quaint. Set in gorgeous countryside. Weather was warm and sunny and we had a great time.
We are very sad to leave this beautiful cottage in such a beautiful part of the country. The cream team welcome was a lovely thought, thank you, and the cottage was so well-equipped with everything we could wish for. Louis enjoyed using the board games, wooden puzzles and reading 'Stig of the Dump' from the excellent bookshelf. A perfect week in a perfect place. We loved Woolacombe, Lynmouth and Combe Martin.
We have loved spending these days in this sweet cottage with its beautiful furniture, and the kitchen leaves nothing to be desired. We had a lovely time here in Devon and enjoyed it very much. Thank you.
Our first visit to Devon and we love it. Lovely cottage, beautiful walks and views. One week was too short but we did a lot and saw a lot, including tea at Watersmeet, dinner at Broomhill and the New Inn, Clovelly, Marwood Gardens, Ilfracombe, Woolacombe, Exeter, Lynton and more. We'll be back for long walks!
What an amazing cottage, even after two days here we still keep spotting the lovely touches that make it so homely. It is in a perfect location for walks and the beach, which is where we spent today, we recommend Saunton Sands. We especially loved our evening drinks out on the patio, listening to the bees. It is so peaceful and makes a refreshing change from the city.
Lovely cottage full of character. Food at New Inn was very enjoyable. Watch out for low beams!
Very warm welcome on arrival from Stephanie. Excellent equipped cottage with everything we required. If we are here again we will book Rock Cottage for another weekend.
A lovely welcoming and charming cottage in a beautiful part of Devon. We've thoroughly enjoyed our stay, albeit temperatures have been Arctic! It hasn’t stopped us touring the endless charming villages and walking on the moor and along coast. New Inn food is excellent.
Peace and tranquillity! Wonderful cottage, warm welcome on arrival with a cream tea. The New Inn is great for food. A walk along Woolacombe Bay is a must.
A great retreat from work. Loved the cottage wood burner and local public house, great food.
Superlatives are not enough. Hate the smoke detector in the kitchen. I will be back!
Another great holiday! We missed the food at the New Inn but had a great time discovering new favourite places.
We came for peace and quiet and certainly found that at Rock Cottage. Loads of character and warmth. Couldn’t wish for more. A delightful place to unwind.
What a lovely cottage! Our friends stayed elsewhere and were very jealous of our beautiful accommodation and wonderful New Inn pub a minute’s walk.
My favourite place for a holiday come rain or shine, Rock Cottage is a welcoming haven.
There were so many things we loved about Rock Cottage that our visit was all too short. The scones, beautifully clean, good quality bedding and towels, the sauce pans - everything!
Very pretty cottage has lots of charming character, lovely views. We had a very pleasant and relaxing holiday we all need. We will recommend it to friends. Thank you
Rock cottage is the perfect place to stop and unwind and explore the North Devon countryside. The cottage is really well equipped and has everything you need to sit back and enjoy your stay. We walked for miles along the coastal paths and stunning and dramatic scenery thn walking across Exmoor and all that it offers. Had a fab Saturday night meal at the local pub, home cooked food at its best and on our first night they gave us a take away beer or two" : We have had a beautiful time here. Thank you
The warm welcome and lovely cream tea from the housekeeper was appreciated. The cottage is in a good position to explore the Devon Coast (west) and the North Cornish coast. Great weather meant we could sit outside for meals and drinks
We have had a lovely relaxing week. The gnome reserve was a particular highlight for Edward even in the pouring rain. A lovely cottage just right for us and easy to reach everywhere we to wanted to go.
We've had an enjoyable "mini-break" doing lots of walking ad exploring. The hospitality at the New Inn was great
I never tire of visiting this cottage. A lovely peaceful bolt hold. Immersed in the vibrant green in the country lanes a walks in good weathers or bad is not to be missed
We have loved out visit to Rock Cottage and have thoroughly enjoyed exploring North Devon - our 1st Visit. Loved Croyde and Baggy Point, Clovelly & Lynmouth + Lynmouth. We are determined to come back again. And thanks for the cottage - so well equipped. Next time we come we may even get to the light the fire. P. S Look out for the lizard in the garden who kept coming out to bask in the sunshine
Despite the weathers best, or should that be 'worst' efforts we thoroughly enjoyed out first visit here. What a lovely cottage. So well equipped. Thank you. We plan to return.
We need to "stop the world and get off for a while" and Rock Cottage ticked every box and more!! We wouldn't change a thing about this beautiful, warm, cosy cottage and we look forward to many more wonderful times here!
Great Cottage - home from home, ideal for our first holiday with baby in tow.
We really enjoyed our ½ term stay at Rock Cottage. Lovely home, beautiful views and wonderful weather. A great contrast to West London.
We all had a fab holiday, a lovely cottage. Highly recommend the New Inn!
Lovely time despite wind+rain. Great Cottage. Appledore then onto Instow to see the view!
Wow! Such a lovely cottage! Home from home! Honeycomb ice cream at the New Inn is the best. Thankyou.
The cottage is in a brilliant countryside location, and is only a short distance from the New Inn and their famous honeycomb ice cream, plus it’s only a short drive to some fantastic places to visit such as Arlington Court, Clovelly and Exmoor.
