Third visit each one better than the last!
The property has spectacular views and is well equipped & very comfortable making it an ideal place to stay whilst discovering glorious North Devon. We highly recommend Old Saltys.
Lovely setting with stunning views, nice touch with welcome box of local goodies,will definitely be staying again in the future.
Fabulous views, in comfortable Old Saltys Cottage
Beautiful views and excellent walking. The cottage was very comfortable. Recommend the Thatched Inn for food, a walk around Northam Buurows (believe it has the oldest golf course in England) plus a cycle along the Tarka trail.
A lovely cottage, with great space and homely furnishings, a real pleasure!
Very comfortable and well equipped. It felt like home from home.
As lovely as the last visit. Mid February and it hit 18 degrees mid week.
Second visit to this quant cottage. Has everything you need. Pack light as the cottage is like a home from home. I still brought too much stuff and really didn’t need to as the cottage has everything you’ll need apart from food obviously. We were very fortunate with the weather. It was half term so a little busier then expected in Westwood Ho! Village. If you want the best cooked breakfast you must go to cafe in the village next to the coop.
There is another cafe around the corner near the surf school but I do not recommend going there. Flies circling around, warm food, dirty glass and odd staff staring at you while you eat.
Pubs are very expensive to eat and drink unless your minted and can afford to eat and drink out every day!
The walk down to the village is as steep as remembered but if you take your time walking back up the hill it’s a good workout.
Cottage is very cosy on cold evenings, curled up on the sofa with a book and a glass of wine. Just a shame the week flew by which we knew it would.
Some walls down stairs in the cottage could do with a lick of fresh white paint but that’s a minor blip in what’s a beautiful little hidden gem.
Thanks for letting us stay for the half term.
Back to reality now!!
