We chose this cottage based on both photos/reviews. It really didn't disappoint! Some properties have clever photos to distract and hide their shortcomings. This was the polar opposite! We would have moved in if we were able, it really suited us down to the ground. Large airy internal spaces; well-appointed rooms; great facilities; cutlery, crockerRead morey, glasses, pans and cutlery all in abundance. Views were amazing. We were 4 adults +16 month old. Will def be back. Mr + Mrs G are great. Thank you Hide

We recently enjoyed a very relaxing stay at this lovely property which is situated on a working farm. The barn itself was very spacious, clean and well equipped. There are beautiful views of sweeping fields towards the sea and we were entertained on many mornings by swifts and even a couple of distant buzzards. It was well located for visiting manyRead more sites in North Devon and just over the Cornish border. There was a lovely breakfast welcome pack provided by the very friendly and helpful owners. Hide

Absolutely beautiful location, and the perfect base to explore the North Devon coastline. The property is finished to a high standard and is decorated tastefully. The photos dont do the size justice, not the splendour of the views. The location is quiet and secluded, but close enough to pubs, shops, restaurants etc. The farm is great, and the childRead moreren loved seeing the animals every day. The property is great, and so were the hosts. I cant recommend this place highly enough. Hide

Wow . We absolutely loved it. There was only 4 of us so we had plenty of room and the weather was great. However the stable/ barn was fantastic, so well equipped and comfortable and a lovely welcome hamper too. We will definitely be going back.

We had the most amazing get away! The cottage was immaculate with great facilities. It was spacious, with beautiful outdoor space, views across the field and the ocean in the background. The atmosphere is peaceful and still with lots of privacy. The beds were so comfortable; I sleep like a baby every night (and this is coming from someone who does Read morenot sleep well). I came back home refreshed with a new burst of energy. The owners are very generous and hospitable I hope to return soon. Thank you! Hide

Firebeacon farm is a lovely, comfortable, clean and spacious holiday home. It has the most gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. It's well placed to visit all sorts of attractions including stunning beaches like Sandymouth Bay, RHS Rosemoor, Clovelly, Hartland and many more places within a half hours drive. We would highly recommend it.
