Forsythia Cottage is a detached, private, thatched cottage which has benefitted from a modern extension which includes the room to rent, kitchen, bathroom and tv lounge. It has a large, south facing mature garden which guests can use. The cottage is located 50m from Devon's Tarka cycle/walking trail and half a mile from the centre of Braunton. Close to the beaches, the host can provide surf tuition, eqpt hire and cycle hire.

We stayed for only 1 night with our dog Owen but we could have stayed a week! Steve and his little dog Dizzie are fantastic, the place is not only in a great location but also super clean. Steve offers bike and surf board rental which is great as he lives right be the tarka trail and also the sea isn't far at all with lots of great surf spots around. Sadly we didn't have time to take advantage of that but we had a great stay, especially if you bring your dog you will appreciate the enclosed garden

Steve is a great host, and a great surf teacher. The cottage is on a quiet lane tucked away from the rest of the village. The room is clean and spacious and you will get a good nights sleep. We went down to the beach and Steve is a calm and helpful instructor who can tailor the lessons to making you a better surfer. I would recommend staying and taking the lessons to all who are looking for a great place to stay whilst visiting the area.

We had a great few days in North Devon, made all the more enjoyable by Steve's fantastic hosting at Forsythia Cottage. The house is in a really convenient location close to the centre of Braunton and within ten minutes drive to the incredible beaches! We had a great surf lesson with Steve which we both thoroughly enjoyed and he recommended us some gorgeous pubs and places to visit whilst we were there. The cottage was the perfect place to come back to each day and we felt so welcome to come and go as we pleased! Our dog loved the cottage (and loved Dizzy!) and it's lovely garden too!
