We stayed at Little Ash 8th Aug to 15th August 2015.
We had wanted a total chill out break away having worked flat out all year and we wished to be away from the touristy towns and boy did Little Ash do just the trick!
It is down a little lane at the base of a valley and attached to the owners 16th century cottage which with the grounds, used to be an old mill.
We couldn't fault the cottage or its' setting, hence our 5 stars.
The cottage itself was immaculate, clean as a whistle, more than adequately equipped and everything you needed from home to home!
Sue and Alan the owners did a lovely little touch once we had settled in and brought us round a homemade cream tea, of which the scones Sue had baked especially for us and to be honest - We both said that this made us feel so welcomed from the outset of our stay and got us immediately relaxed in the Devon way - A lovely start to our stay.
They are some outstanding oldey worldy pubs in the local villages serving fantastic food and drinks at exceptionally low prices compared to back up South where we come from.
There are easy links to Torrington, Bideford, Bude, Barnstable etc and fantastic driving roads, twists and turns, but if you like driving, you'll love these roads.
The cottage has a large box with leaflets to all sorts of attractions to suit everyone from extreme sports, to flower shows and we found these leaflets a Godsend.
Although this was just a getaway break from the fast moving world back up South, I work on short term contracts and visit Devon and Cornwall 2 to 3 times a year for between 2 to 4 weeks at a time, normally staying in Travel Lodges and the like, but for any business man or woman, this is an ideal stop for most links within the two counties and no doubt with a longer stay, the accomodation rate would be negotiable I'm sure.
Anyway, sorry for the length of this review, but I have always taken the time to complete an in-depth review if I thought the place was exceptional and Little Ash and the owners Sue and Alan definitely are exceptional.
I hope this helps others in their decision to stay at Little Ash, as I can assure you that you won't be disappointed.
