  • What a fantastic find Moorparks cottage is.
    The Cottage we stayed in is fab, arrived to Scones, Jam & cream and fresh eggs, everything you could ask for & if you have forgotten something Erik & Michele are on hand to ask, nothing is any trouble......
    On our last day full day at the cottage, we decide to explore Moorparks and Erik was on hand to show us around to meet all the sheep up close of which we can only remember a few names.
    Spent the afternoon in the garden. We certainly do not want to leave & we are already talking about coming back next year..
    We cannot thank you enough Erik & Michele fo rmaking us so welcome.

  • What a find!
    We received a very warm welcome from Erik and Michele and were introduced to some of the animals-namely the ducks and sheep! The Cottage was spotless and equipped to a very high standard with the aim, we are sure, of making you feel as if you're at home. The views are beautiful - open Devon countryside.

    Had an amazing time here again, our second visit to Moorparks. Children have loved spending hours with the animals and Erik. They will be sad to miss Trevor the lamb. Spent a lovely day cycling on the Tarka trail to Instow, another surfing at Croyde and a wonderful walk along the coast path from Westward Ho!. Such a lovely cottage and lovely people. See you again soon.

  • We've had a fantastic holiday here. The Cottage is very well equipped with everything you need to get you started. Beautiful scones with clotted cream and jam were waiting for us along with milk, tea bags and coffee. The Cottage has such a homely feel to it, we love it and want one of our own. It was such a joy to sit outside and watch the sheep, alpacas and chickens during the day, so very relaxing. At night we would sit out and watch the bats and just listen to the night life.
    Erik and Michele are such a lovely couple, very knowledgeable about the area. If there is anything you require you just have to ask. Thank you Erik and Michele for making our stay here so perfect. We are looking forward to coming back.

We had a lovely treat of scones with jam and cream, they were delicious! Some lovely flowers and tea/coffee & milk & some yummy eggs to get us started. We really enjoyed the cottage and had a few fires on the log burner, which was really cosy after long days on the beach with our 4 & 8 year olds!!
    Our girls loved the animals and seeing them and enjoyed feeding them, they are really comical and its lovely to drive in and see the alpacas so interested in you.

    Once again the accommodation has been first class. Due to the warm weather we've enjoysed breakfast and dinner on the decking.
    Moorparks is a haven for wildlife and we've enjoyed watching the family of Great Spotted Woodpeckers on the feeders and on two occasions have seen Stoats in the garden.
    Thankyou again Erik and Michele for a lovely holiday and for making our stay so special.

  • We stayed at MOORPARKS COTTAGE in July 2017 & I have to say that it is the best accommodation we have ever been to. The owners Erik & Michele made us very welcome.
