This was our second stay at 'The Wood Stack' cottage, and we loved every minute of it! Everything was very clean and comfortable, with a huge bed! The garden and surroundings are beautiful and I'm sure we will be back again next year.

A perfect location for visiting north Devon. Sparkling clean and comfy. The cream tea a real treat. The log fire kept us cosy and warm. We hoped to use The Muddiford Inn but disappointed as it had irregular opening times, we did go out of season. The host was very friendly and helpful. We loved it

A beautifully furnished and well equipped property. The location was very peaceful but not too remote. We had a very warm welcome from our host who left us completely to our own devices but was on hand if needed. The local pub is an easy walk through the fields and did very good food. One of the nicest and most comfortable places we have stayed.

Lovely cottage but if coming in winter make sure you have plenty of logs for the wood burner as its quite cold without it (lovely and cosy in the living area with it though) Lovely welcome flowers and cream tea plus biscuits for the dogs. Within easy reach of Woolacombe.
