Escaping to this wonderful cottage after months of lockdown was a tonic. We had stayed there a few years ago but there was the cottage had been modernised with a lovely walk in shower and new furniture in the lounge.

Positives- Beautiful cottage- spacious in a stunning quiet setting. Enough space for family of 5. Everything one needed was provided. Caretaker left a few welcome essentials - lovely touch Beautiful garden with stream
Negatives- low ceilIngs downstairs- not ideal for under 6 feet - my son kept forgetting to duck. If making calls important - no signal. So not able to use mobile for making bookings. WiFi was available. Needed good airing and possibly curtains washed as musty smell. Electro heaters probably need replacing as dials too stiff - and not working at all in win bedroom.
If windows opened did attract excessive amount of flies. Probably needs a thorough spring clean several times a year - including ceilings, lamp shades etc

However I would certainly stay here again because the positive outweighs the cons. It really is a beautiful property - just in need of a bit of TLC.

We had a great stay in the cottage, plenty of space for five of us. The cottage is old and quirky with all the modern day facilities - all in perfect working order. Beautiful gardens with plenty of outdoor seating. The location is an excellent base for exploring North Devon and Cornwall is just up the road. Would definitely stay again.



Wonderful cottage, location, and excellent communication with agent, housekeeping and

Unfortunately our planned week stay was cut short (3 days) by the need to return home early. The cottage was brilliant and the wildlife very entertaining.
A very special THANKS to Clare who was most helpful before our arrival,and during our stay. She gave us information about places to go and where to shop. We hope to return again next year.

We spent Christmas at Crooked Lake with our three adult children. We arrived to find the cottage looking very Christmassy with lots of lovely decorations which were much appreciated and some edible treats too. The cottage was comfortable, very well equipped and once we'd set the storage heaters, very cosy. We didnt use the conservatory but the cottage was roomy and there was plenty of space for the five of us to spread out. We particularly enjoyed the sound of running water from the watercourse between the cottage and garden and would like to return in the summer months to see the garden in leaf. Would highly recommend.

crooked lake cottage is a cosy wonderful home from home with a large well kept garden which attracts a wide range of wildlife.
the cottage was built in the 17th century, as such there are low beams and doors so care must be taken. there is good wi-fi & the
tv picture was fine whilst we were there. The beds are very comfortable with plenty of bedding and the kitchen is well stocked with everything needed for a great holiday. All in all a fantastic holiday cottage with a large garden in a peaceful part of north devon
