We loved staying at Seagrass, such a lovely property in a good location. It was very well equipped and very comfortable. We loved the added touch of a bottle of Prosecco on our arrival. The hot tub was lovely to come home to after a day of walking or cycling. It is just a short drive to the Tarka trail, Instow beach and Appledore. Our son loved theRead more football table and had lots of fun playing it. We would definitely recommend staying here and we look forward to returning in the future. Hide

This cottage is perfect! Karen and Tony have thought of every detail inside, we couldnt fault a thing! The place was spotless and has a beautiful view. Great location for exploring Devon, we spent a lot of time travelling to Cornwall too. The hot tub is a great bonus and there are plenty of food places very close. We had takeaway food from the Pig Read more& Olive, Belluno and Quay 22, all close by. We also ate at the boathouse in Instow per Karens recommendation, what a sunset! Thank you both again! Hide
