    An outstanding well appointed cottage, with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing time deep in the beautiful North Devon countryside and rugged coastline. The upside down cottage is well equipped, clean and has a lovely big bed and good size bathroom. The garden is adequate, has patio area garden chairs and a good BBQ. Thimble is positioned 5 minutes walk from local amenities including a couple of pubs, local shop and fish & chip shop! Plenty of beautiful coastline and wooded walks surround Thimble cottage, and with Bude and Bideford only 30 minutes away options for days out are plentiful. The owners take great care and pride in ensuring the cottage is clean and well maintained. Perhaps a little expensive, bit then you pay for what get! In conclusion, we could not fault Thimble, and we thoroughly enjoyed our peaceful relaxing stay in Hartland.

    A beautiful tiny”thimble” cottage in a lovely peaceful setting. We were the first in after opening following lockdown so a few things removed. We wanted for nothing ...all you could need was there. Upside down living was nice as we have lived in similar...works perfectly for access to the gardens. We were blessed with the weather so enjoyed the outside,an orchard garden out of one door,fully enclosed for the dogs,with seating and shade if you needed it. A further patio with seating outside another door,leading on to a lovely grassed area (not enclosed). The bedroom downstairs was a good size with the bathroom leading off. Water pressures good for a lovely shower. All bedding and towels were quality. The hallway access was tiled with a basket with doggie towels and bowls. What really topped it all was the communication with the owners,they genuinely care about you being comfortable and having a good time. A lovely surprise of gifts too was really appreciated. The village was maybe not at its best but this was to be expected under the circumstances,not all pubs open and those that were offering limited services. We did visit one and sit outside and the local shop and post office were friendly and helpful.

    An absolutely spendid holiday, at an ideal getaway - we arrived with all manner of plans to visit local sites of interest, but mostly ended up snuggling up in the cottage instead, and really only left it to make a few short forays to the local shops for supplies. Considering that it's a barn conversion, and built into the side of a hill, this is a surprisingly bright and airy property, and a lovely mixture of old world charm and modern facilities - can't wait to go back again!

    Thimble Cottage is very welcoming and wraps round you with its lovely furnishings and garden. It is tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean. Will definitely come again.

    Lovely cottage, very clean, with great attention to detail by the owners. Short walk to the village where the locals are friendly and helpful. Lovely walks and places to visit nearby. We will certainly stay at Thimble Cottage again in the future.

    Had a wonderful stay. The cottage is so well equipped and has everything you would possibly need. Dogs even have their own towels and hand baked dog treats as well as a bed if you forget to bring one. Our dog settled right away. Lovely little enclosed garden straight from the living room where they can potter about without be able to escape. Best cottage we have ever booked.

    This is a stunning little cottage, beautiful maintained and in a great location. Near enough to the amenities in Hartland but with a quiet remoteness. The garden is so well set out with chairs that at any time of the day you can catch the sun which we did all week. Both the living room and bedroom were very spacious and a nice large bathroom. The bedroom and bathroom is downstairs with the lounge/kitchen on the 1st floor to take advantage of the sloping garden. It did confuse our dog who is not allowed upstairs at home so we simply walked him up the path and entered through the kitchen door. The only thing which could improve this property is a separate toilet somewhere upstairs - but this is not an issue. Beware of the parking area which is quite steep and has to be taken slowly so you don.t bottom out the car and we found we could only reverse out one way and had to drive round the block to re - enter the drive but we do have a large Audi. It was all very manageable. The views are exceptional and every evening we sat outside to watch the sun set over the wood.

    What a gem of a cottage, we loved every second of our holiday....extremely comfortable cottage and very clean, the complimentary extras went down a treat. Lots of places to visit within a short drive away, would highly recommend. If it were possible to give more than 10 out of 10 stars we would ❤

    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.
