Wonderful comfortable cottage
Visited over New Year. Photo's on this site show cottage exactly as it is. Nice spacious cottage. Access is via a steep hill and steps up to cottage, this didn't cause us any issues although I didn't like driving up there as quite narrow lane! There is good parking available for two cars. Bedrooms are all a good size and beds were really comfortable with lovely memory foam mattresses. As well as the main bathroom with over bath shower there is another separate toilet. It was too warm over our visit to make use of the wood burner, even though it was a winter visit we did enjoy sitting out on the seating outside the cottage and the garden seating area would be great in summer I'm sure. Liked having two living room areas, this would be good for a large family group. There are a lot of books, DVD's and games available for you to use. There is a nice large dining table which was good for jigsaws/games as well as eating. WiFi service is good. It is a short walk to the village although during our visit a lot of the cafe's were shut, the Post Office did a take away chinese option and we got take away pizza from The Dolphin pub. Would also recommend the Pack of Cards pub at top end of village. The cottage is in a great position for walking with easy access to the coastal walks, all the walks in this area are fairly steep, we enjoyed a walk to Ilfracombe and to great hangman for fabulous views. There is also a nice pub a little outside of Combe Martin at Berrynarbor, we walked there for Sunday lunch which was really good. Really enjoyed our visit and hope to go again.

Lovely house- would return in an instant!
Lovely house with 4 decent sized bedrooms. Kitchen is equipped with everything you could need and garden is very big and lovely patio area. We had a toddler (16 months) with us and they provided a highchair and cot which was a life saver! Would definitely return

Perfect Family Holiday
We had a lovely family holiday during Easter week, Gorwell House has a cosy 'Home from Home' feel, with a lovely woodburner for chilly nights, we had plenty of space for all six in our family and a lovely welcome of tea, biscuits and a bottle of wine on arrival, even the Easter Bunny came and lots of fun was had searching for eggs in the lovely gardens. Very good location for lovely walks, beaches and would highly recommend Watermouth Castle, lovely for children of all ages, theme park included. Perfect family holiday.

A very lovely house near the little beach of Combe Martin. The sitting room in the house is very comfortable and cosy - especially on rainy days when you light a fire. The kitchen is fully equipped and typically British. We loved every day there.

The location and space of the cottage was ideal. The place was very comfortable and well equipped throughout. The fire is a great feature and having a large dinner table to sit around and share meals was excellent.
