What Past Guests Are Saying
Fantastic place for a relaxing getaway
This would be our second time at Downe and we absolutely loved it both times. Jeremy and Lynda seem to think of everything. Set in the most idyllic surroundings on arrival we were warmly greeted, the cottages and nicely furnished and everything is catered for.
Jeremy and Lynda also provide a comprehensive guide to local places of interest and eateries and we worked our way through the extensive list (We are looking to continue working through it on our return)
We also tried to ready prepared meals which I have to say were also of an excellent quality and the breakfast baskets were also very good, Hartland, a short drive away was also very nice for the other odds and ends that you may need.
What stands out more than anything else is the absolutely warm welcome that you receive from them, they are just so accommodating and friendly and the cottages and extremely well stocked with absolutely everything you could think of.
We are definitely looking to return soon and are trying to organise for some friends to come along as well.
I would also say that the place is extremely child friendly, away from the all too familiar arcades and theme parks (although there is one not too far away (Big sheep fun I think its called)
Definitely worth a visit. Excellent!!!
Top quality accommodation set in outstanding coastal countryside
The standard of accommodation exceeded expectations and the attention to detail in preparing the cottage (Honeysuckle) for holiday lets was so comprehensive that even the most discerning guests would find it difficult to nit pick.
The owners, Jeremy & Lynda Roe, extended a warm welcome and provided lots of very useful local information and recomendations about the area (The meals at Downe are worth a try).
Relaxing, comfortable and peaceful stay in stunning location
Our stay at Downe was so enjoyable, the cottage is beautiful and cosy and the amazing breakfast and home-cooked meals left for us as arranged just prior to our arrival set us off for a totally relaxing week. The location is stunning with a spectacular sweeping view of the point and Lundy Island and gorgeous gardens right around us.
There are heaps of places to visit and things to do in the local area, and Jeremy and Lynda are able to suggest any number of possible itineraries and specific recommendations for places to eat or beaches or drives to enjoy. And of course, an indulgent treatment- or two- in the tranquil spa just a few steps away from the cottage is a must. We can't wait to visit again!
High quality off-the-beaten track self catering accomodation.
Hartland is a remote and unspoilt corner of England, with excellent coastal walks. If a day of sea vistas and cliff top walking appeals to you this is a perfect area in which to take a break. If perfectly presented and comprehensively equipped cottages with wood burning stoves and HD television suit you, then I recommend Downes Cottages. Jeremy and Lynda Roe have painstakingly restored a series of traditional farm buildings and incorporated high quality conversions. The cottages include fully equipped kitchens, allowing total independence if desired. Jeremy and Lynda also offer a pre-booked meal service using fresh local ingredients for your convenience. We did not sample the food or the extensively equipped spa during our 4 days stay, instead we entertained our 4 year old with seaside visits and country walks. A very peaceful place to unwind and relax.
