Weare cottage is a beautiful place to stay. The layout is very spacious so you can all find a place to chill without being on top of each other. It’s is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Wendy was a great host, who is able to recommend places to eat and things to do. We would definitely recommend a stay here.

We stayed at Weare Cottage for a total of 7 nights from 9th September 2020 with our parents, for a staycation getaway. From the moment that we arrived, we were made to feel welcome and relaxed by our hosts, Wendy and Duncan. They were very knowledge and gave us great advice over the best places to visit and eating out, but welcomed feedback and if there was anything they could improve upon. The cottage is located just off the main lane that runs through the quaint village of Weare Giffard and getting to the nearby towns of Bideford and Great Torrington were 10 mins in either direction – handy for shops, supermarkets and other local amenities – but also for RHS Rosemoor, Dartington Crystal and the towns of Westward Ho!, Ilfracombe, Clovelly and Bude. There is also a circular 20-30 mins walk up into the woods which are behind the cottage where you can get a good view over the valley. The cottage was large, with 3 big and bright double bedrooms, a relaxing lounge and a conservatory (a good spot to see the squirrels and bird spot!). It was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and a great kitchen which had all of the things would need. There were little touches like hand santiser, anti-bac wipes, along with a welcome basket of tea, coffee and Devon scones which was greatly appreciated after a 7 hour drive. Thank you for a relaxing stay and we would highly recommend this as a great place to stay in North Devon.

Lovely house, clean, cosy, so well equipped, every detail thought of. Beautiful spot to explore surrounding areas. Very responsive, helpful hosts who offered lots of tips and local knowledge. We really enjoyed our family getaway. K

Great place to stay in for 2 adults plus 5 and 2 year old. Wendy and Duncan were very helpful. Lovely to have a basket of edible goodies on arrival. Nice to have some toys and books for the kids. Didn’t seem anything was missing – hairdryer, cafetiere, dishwasher all of good quality. Spotlessly clean.
