The cottage is small but has all the amenities you could want. Although you cannot sit in the courtyard unless you have pets that don't move as open to road if main gate is open. Would benefit from being sectioned off with a small gate, so you could relax in the courtyard in the evening.

Nice place to stay, small but ok for two people. Good value for money. The courtyard is not dog proof and the main gate to the property is often open so giving access to the main road. This means you cant let your dog out unless on a lead. The owners dog often appears in the courtyard and barks incessantly. Apart from that, its a nice place to stayRead more and explore this part of the North Devon Coast, which is spectacular. Hide

A lovely little converted barn, at the end of the owner's garden. However it does feel fairly private with its own little courtyard seating area. The owner was helpful and friendly. It's a short walk from Westward Ho although the walk back (uphill) can be a bit of a climb unless you are fairly fit. There are a lot of other places to go in North DevRead moreon and the Cwtch makes a convenient base. The property generally has a lovely cosy and safe feel to it. Would recommend for a couple. Hide

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
