I'm almost a little resentful at being able to write such a positive review for Gorran Downs, as I don't want to find it booked the next time I wish to make use of it. It was a beautiful cottage which enabled access to a stunning part of North Devonshire coast. The cottage had a comfortable, homely feel and the fire kept us cosy. We felt very tucked away from the squall of the October winds. Our party of friends, family and one cat didn't just want to return; we wanted to move in! See our picture below which shows the house in the October sun.
