    We had a lovely stay here, when we booked it I thought we were miles from Westward Ho and it was really close. Property had everything you could want from a strong hairdryer to a pizza cutter. Garry the owner, was very helpful and pointed out The Pier House, which was a fab place to watch the sun set and we may not have found it, without his recommendation. The Shoe Box was spotless, and while we were lucky with the weather, even if it had rained, there were books, games and DVDs to keep you occupied. Perfect for couples, we really recommend this property and it’s host Garry.

    The Shoe Box is a perfect lovely cottage for 2 people. It's fitted with all modern amenities. It's in a very good location for getting out and about North Devon. Has got central heating throughout. Outside is a raised deck area with table and chairs. Well set out flower beds. Shared access to the cottage. It is a well presented cottage (like home from home) Will highly recommend to everyone. Looking forward to a return visit. 5star cottage

    Lovely cottage and within easy reach of all local areas. Spent only 3 nights hear but had a lovely time at the cove which is about a 20min walk away. Also visited Westward Ho! and Appledore. Both lovely! In all areas there is a range of eating places and things to see as well as enjoying the wonderful views. Fish and Chips just a few doors away from the Shoe Box (very nice) but closed Sunday and Monday, the café across the road we couldn't used as they days open did not coincide with our stay (Sat - Tues), the pub at the top of the road says it serves food every day- it doesn't. But there is a handy Co-op and plenty of choice in the surrounding area, we particularly enjoyed Country Cousins in Appledore (good carvery and vegetable curry enjoyed including choices from the sweet trolley). Would thoroughly recommend the Shoe Box (stayed with my daughter), a great welcome from Garry was received and the cottage is to a very high standard.

    A great little cottage. Well equipped and in the perfect location to walk, cycle or drive to lovely locations across North Devon. Garry was the perfect host and would strongly recommend.

    Had a excellent holiday . Shoebox cottage was very clean and cosy.. Garry was very helpful and informative of the area. My husband and myself have bus passes and found it was excellent to use them and explore the area, bus stops 5 min away. Nice fish and chip shop close by and Chinese. Would recommend The Shoebox to friends and family. Thank you again Garry.

    The owner of The Shoe Box was very friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Even the rain couldn’t spoil it. A lovely holiday and one we shall certainly do again
