Upon arrival we found Lincombe a very charming hamlet and the stable cottage is clean, bright, airy, warm and welcoming. Parking right outside the cottage is important when we have a little dog with us.?The lounge was very spacious; the kitchen was perfectly adequate for preparing decent meals. Ok, it might need a bit of forward planning for a Sunday roast with all the trimmings for 5 people. The bathroom is a good size with a good electric shower. Bedroom are cosy and warm. All satisfactory.?As we have no children in our party we did not use the games room. Instead we spent quite a lot of our early mornings and evenings in the Lincombe house garden. The garden was a credit to the owners. It was very well maintained and a perfect spot to admire sunsets. Sitting in the swing with a glass of wine, birds singing nearby, a gleam of the sea in the far corner, that's tranquility itself.?The owners, Richenda and Kathy, are very friendly people. When we first arrived Kathy came out to meet us and showed us where things were in the cottage and their beautiful garden. Richenda and Kathy would leave us in peace to enjoy our holidays but when we saw them in the garden they were very friendly and would stop to chat.?We were very grateful to them for their help when I had a problem with my car. Kathy even gave up her time and took me to her car mechanic friend straight away and have it fixed. They even offered to put us up for an extra night when the driving conditions were a bit dubious with the strong wind battering the South West Coast on the day we due to come home. Now, how kind and caring was that.?Bright and clean accommodation, central location, beautiful surroundings, friendly and helpful owners. That's the essentials of a perfect holiday.(

Fantastic friendly accommodation
My wife, I and our dog stayed at Stable Cottage in early July 2016 (and were joined later by our daughter and her boyfriend). The cottage was very comfortable and spacious for the five of us; and all the facilities were very clean and plentiful. We had access to good quality WIFI throughout our stay and the games room (with darts, table tennis and pool) was great fun and greatly used by us. (Even the dog got excited in there!) The beds were warm and comfortable; and as the cottage was in a quiet location we slept like logs every night. Stable cottage has its own private terrace (with garden table & chairs) and overlooked the main Lincombe House garden which was huge and beautiful; with views to the sea at Lee bay. The private terrace was ours exclusively; but it was also made clear to us that we (including the dog) were welcome to use the main garden (which we did often). The locality is fantastic; being only 10 mins from Ilfracombe (a lovely, large seaside town); and only 10 mins from Woolacombe (in my opinion the best beach in the UK). There are lots of charming pubs and places to eat nearby. I cannot close this review without saying something about the owners; Richenda and Cathy. They really went out of their way to make us feel welcome and we're extremely helpful with any queries and requests we had (and we're a great laugh conversationally as well). They are very caring people; who are extremely dog friendly. This was the second time we had stayed with Richenda and Cathy; and on each occasion we have enjoyed our stay so much that we have immediately booked again for the following year. (We will be there again in July 2018!)

great holiday
We had another great holiday at Lincombe house, Richenda and Kathy we're very friendly and welcoming and left us some doggy treats for our lab. They helped us from the start by getting the cleaners to start on our accommodation first as we got to lincombe earlier than normal and was completed when we got there. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. The kitchen isn't big but it doesn't need to be, we won't be baking just breakfast and dinner. The living room has every thing you need and is spacious for myself my wife and 3 teenage boys. The dining table couldn't seat 5 of us but the boys didn't want to sit with us so took it in turns to eat on the settee. The bedrooms are adequate for what we needed them to be and we had good night sleeps. The shower took some time to get used to but when we did we had no problems. The garden is lovely and had some great views. The boys didn't get bored because of the games room playing table tennis, pool and darts. The cottage is about a 10 minute drive to the fantastic woolacombe beach. And for the walkers out there the walk to woolacombe has some amazing views. Lee is just down the road and has a small beach and rock pools. Overall we had a great time the cottage is perfect for us we love woolacombe and we've booked for next year in hillymouth cottage and can't wait to go back.
