    An excellent cottage for two plus dogs, very clean and comfortable with a small fenced garden area which is ideal for dogs. Communications with the owners were great and they provided welcome bubbly, beer and dog treats which was much appreciated. There is excellent dog walking straight from the cottage (along a river valley) and we really appreciated scenery and walks around the Hartland area.

    What a brilliant cottage! Perfect location for a peaceful break. The welcome wine, milk, Tassimo coffee pods and doggie treats were a nice touch. The Dog proof garden is excellent, the TV amazing. Ideal location for exploring North Devon, with lovely walks for Bruno (my dog) and stunning scenery on the door step as well. The local village shops and pubs weren’t bad either! Definitely a place the owners should be proud of. Lastly, the view of the stars from the garden on a clear night must be seen. Thanks?

    Had a lovely stay at Thimble cottage over Easter weekend. The owners were very accommodating and made an effort to stay in contact during our stay. The cottage was exactly what we were looking for, even better than the photos. We particularly liked the enclosed garden for our pooch. Whole cottage was extremely clean and had everything you could need. Bed was very comfy and felt like a 5 star hotel. We will be returning as soon as we can

    A truly delightful cottage where everything has been thought of. The location is on the edges of Hartland village, just a short stroll in to the centre up a steepish road. It was the perfect spot for us with our two doggies, with a lovely river and meadow walk right outside the door and the doggies loved having their own, very secure garden. The bed is the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in ! The cottage flows really well and there is everything you could want for a holiday stay and some very thoughtful extras. Heather and Peter were very helpful and welcoming. Highlights in the area were Hartland Point, Hartland Quay and the walk to Speke’s Mouth waterfall, Docton Mill, Hartland Abbey which was breathtaking, as was Brownsham woods to the cliffs walk. Thoroughly recommended.

    What a little gem of a cottage. Thimble cottage was a beautiful place to stay. Had a great enclosed garden for the dogs. The cottage was really clean and the owners had thought of everything to make my stay enjoyable. The bed was so comfy and there was a basket of bits for the dogs too. Communication with the owners prior to arrival was very pleasant and although I didn’t need to contact them again I felt I could at any time. The cottage is quite remote but I loved that so it’s not for you if you want a lot going on outside your door but for a peaceful break it’s faultless, just wish it held more people so you could enjoy with a larger group of people.. Definitely a great place to stay

    We have been staying at Thimble cottage for nearly 10 years and it is are recharge holiday. The cottage is cosy and comfortable, complete with all you need for a restful break. You even get WiFi and phone signal now. The owners have taken care to secure the garden, ensuring that your the four legged member of the family can enjoy their holiday too. The cottage is situated at the end of a lane and from here you can walk into woodlands, open countryside, up to the local pub and village. We love it so much we will definitely stay again.

    We simply loved this cottage where we were made to feel very welcome. The owners seem to have thought of everything (it is very well equipped) and once we contacted them prior to the start of the holiday they kept in touch just in case of any problems, this we found very thoughtful. There was a super river walk close by for our dog George and the scenery in the area is fantastic - especially Hartland Quay. It is one of the best cottages we have stayed in, it is very cosy and we loved the super king-size bed - it was so comfortable. We do hope to return in the future.

    A good small cosy cottage for two and a dog, Located at the bottom of a steep hill in the village of Hartland. Access is by a narrow lane and needs care when parking the car. Overall one of the best cottages we have stayed in.
