Terms and conditions

Thank you for making us feel most welcome at Gallery Cottages. "Ochre" was spotlessly clean, spacious, and so very stylish. We were able to relax in comfort in the evenings and we all caught up on some much needed sleep! The location was perfectly peaceful and access to the plunge pool and picture-perfect outside seating was the icing on the cake especially for the children. Our dog, Bella, made herself immediately at home, enjoying the energy of these beautisul surroundings (matched by the accommodation). Gallery Cottages has proved to be a little haven for us - and we return home recharged. Rob and Belinda, thank you and kind wishes, from the Stables family.
Plus Holly, you are gorgeous.
P.S. thank you Rob for your wonderful workshop. I tried to absorb every minute and I look forward to practising and applying everything I have learnt!

Very well thought out, modern and clean accommodation. We had a very warm welcome and were allowed to check in 2 hours early due to the weather. Extremely dog friendly, even down to a throw over the couch to allow for dogs. Very comfy beds and really nice luxury wet room. Kids loved the pool. The cream tea on arrival was absolutely amazing. The whole accommodation has been really impressive and cannot fault anything. Thank you both for a wonderful holiday.

Noel Watkins & family

20 Aug 2023

We had a thoroughly fantastic week staying at Sienna Cottage. Our hosts Belinda and Rob were really welcoming and friendly and had thought of everything! The cottage was spotlessly clean and as the weather was so hot we were really grateful to arrive into the cottage 3 hours before the usual time of 4.00pm. Gallery Cottages are a great combination of home from home luxury in a peaceful location but surprisingly close to all of the lovely places North Devon visitors want to see. We have all had a restful week - we will be back!

Corinne & David Griffiths

19 Aug 2023

We have had an absolutely wonderful stay at Ochre. The cottage is gorgeous and perfect for dealing with beach/pool wet children! Jacob and Thomas loved spending time in the pool. The painting course with Rob was an amazing addition and very thankful you fitted it in at short notice! Hopefully we will be back!

Mark, Katy, Jacob and Thomas King (and Poppy)

What wonderful accommodation, spacious and tastefully decorated. Warm and friendly hosts who made us feel at home from home. Beautifully kept grounds, gardens ample sized. Plunge pool a bonus! Thank you. Thoroughly enjoyed watercolour masterclass with Rob. Thank you for being so patient!

Carrie Parks

29 Jul 2023

Our third time visiting Gallery Cottages, so we obviously love it here! Excellent as always, immaculate and everything you could need has been thought of. The weather was a bit disappointing but Umber certainly wasn't (our new favourite) and on a rainy, blustery day, this still feels like a really luxurious treat to return to. Helen, Mark and Maisie.

Perfect stay - thank you! Cottage was beautifully appointed and extremely well equipped - there was nothing that we needed missing. The private garden is a huge bonus with 5 dogs and the walks literally on the doorstep - perfect! Such a warm welcome from you and Holly was much appreciated. It was lovely to be able to have a dip in the pool as it was so hot. This is easily the most comfortable, welcoming and dog friendly place I have ever stayed in. Thank you so much for having us (and for the cream tea and biscuits - _yum!).

Clare and Gwen Powell

27 Jun 2023

We have had a great holiday. Nothing we felt could be added to enhance our stay. Rooms were clean and comfy. The guest folders and maps were very useful. Gardens and pool were great. Good communication with owners before and during stay. Would stay again! Lovely foody treats. Thanks very much.

Richard and Kelly

17 Jun 2023

Thankyou for a very warm welcome and a delicious cream tea. We have enjoyed our stay at Ochre, situated in beautiful surroundings. It is very warm and cosy, light and airy, with everything provided to make it feel homely. Spotlessly clean, with lovely comfortable beds with quality linens and towels. It is one of the most dog friendly and practical places we have stayed in and they were made very welcome. Ideally situated to explore both rural and coastal Devon and Cornwall. We will definitely be back and will recommend. Looking forward to taking an art class maybe next time. Thankyou

We had a good time. I got a good nights sleep and the fire kept us warm when it was cold. It was clean and very comfortable. The hosts were very welcoming. Overall our stay was really good.

We had a wonderful few days staying in the Ochre cottage, the cottage was spotlessly clean and decorated to the highest of standards.
Belinda and Rob were excellent hosts and we look forward to booking again in the future.


03 Apr 2023

We've had a wonderful stay in Sienna. The cottage is cosy, very comfortable and has everything we needed. You have both been very welcoming. Thank you Rob for taking time to speak to myself and the girls giving us advice on painting with watercolour (hopefully Molly will remember the tips in her GCSE coursework!) Thank you very much Belinda for your warm welcome and advice as to where to visit - we really appreciated it. We hope to come back soon. The Wiliams clan.

Enjoyed our week away. We have been very comfortable and Rob and Belinda have been great hosts and very accommodating. Our dog has enjoyed the freedom and extensive walks that the locality offers. Thank you.

Well thought out cottages in beautiful surroundings. Lovely hosts who are eager to please, making your stay go smoothly and very enjoyable. Fabulous artwork that is painted in-house with an art studio that hold classes you can take part in for a small fee. Holly dog and her morning greeting shall be missed! Thank you, we shall be back.

Set in quiet country side these beautiful cottages are stylish, jam packed with everything you need for a self catering holiday and more. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with clean white linen and fluffy towels. The bathroom is stunning. Close to so many gorgeous dog friendly beaches and walks. The log burner - wow !Rob and Belinda are super hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you for allowing us to share your home. Hector and I loved every moment. Denise

Amazing, quality accommodation in a beautiful setting. Cottages are well thought out, very clean and with all the facilities we could have asked for. Thank you Belinda and Rob for being great hosts and looking after us.

02 Sep 2022

We had a fantastic stay. We could not fault our hosts, were always on hand for guidance and advice, so friendly and accommodating. The plunge pool was a fab extra that the kids loved. Beautiful surroundings and wonderful traditional pubs!! Thank you so much! Especially the added gestures of scones and biscuits!!

Gemma, Rob, Bobby & Mae

27 Aug 2022

A lovely little home away from home. Very clean and tidy in beautiful surroundings. Would definitely recommend to friends and family who wish to visit Devon. Thank you for everything.

Lauraine, Daisy & Keenan

30 Jul 2022

Lovely hosts - very friendly - great hospitality. Comfy beds and fans ad hoc in extreme heat was very thoughtful. Pippa the dog had a lovely time. Local dog walking option (fields and paths) were great. Beautiful part of the world and location provides easy access to different parts of the coast. Big Blue surf lessons were brilliant. Painting option was fantastic for developing artistic skills. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Helen Boulby

22 Jul 2022

We literally couldn't fault our stay at Gallery Cottages. You have thought of absolutely everything! The location is the perfect base to explore the coast and then come back to chill by the pool. Cooked more than we normally would because we had the dog but the large fridge freezer and equipment made this easy. Very peaceful and comfortable setting to relax and unwind - just what we needed! Thanks, hope to see you again in the future.

Lindsey & Antony Lee

15 Jul 2022

Wonderful relaxing and peaceful place with easy access to so many places in Devon and Cornwall. Third visit and we have finally sorted the satnav so that we can mostly avoid the narrow lanes. First visit involved a lot of backing up. Beaches are stunning. Walks amazing. Every year we have gone to completely different places. Our last day ventured in to the pool. Favourite place to read a book. We will be back.

Phil & Frances Marsh

09 Jul 2022

What can we say - two very thoughtful, attentive and pleasant hosts who have obviously thought of every comfort for their guests - including the four-legged ones! The cottage is clean, comfortable and very well equipped, with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. We especially enjoyed using the lovely plunge pool. Having somewhere to exercise our dog on site is a major plus too. Overall a very well appointed holiday home provided by two lovely hosts.

Sarah & Geoff Radford

09 Jul 2022

Fantastic welcome. Adapted cottage to allow us both to use front and back with chairs (the lack of fuss and speed of resolution left us feeling comfortable). Impressed with the quietness of the surroundings and the accessibility of many local attractions. Fantastically equipped kitchen, comfortable sofa and beds - bath looked inviting just a shame we can't use it. Shower was really nice and great to be offered a shower chair. Impressed that our dog Jovita was given a holiday name tag, a really lovely touch, and she was made to feel so welcome.

Jackie Woods & Amanda Yeadon

09 Jul 2022

Very clean, very well equipped, very quiet, lovely pool area, excellent hosts, very much appreciated. Will be booking again next year.

Maria Austin

24 Jun 2022

A perfect accommodation for people and dogs alike. Thank you Rob and Belinda for your friendliness and hospitality (cream tea and cookies). We believe that you have got things 100% correct. We enjoyed the quiet rural setting which is still within easy access of coast and country locations for great days out. Apologies for the broken glass!!

Carl & Carol Arandle

18 Jun 2022

We had an amazing stay at Ochre, the scones on arrival and the biscuits on departure were both lovely. Rob and Belinda were friendly and accommodating to us and the dogs and thought of every little detail even holiday dog tags. The accommodation and on-site facilities were fantastic and everything we hoped for. We will definitely be returning and will be recommending Gallery Cottages to family and friends. Thank you both for such a great stay.

Charlotte Slater

18 Jun 2022

Wonderful home from home exceptional accommodation. Fresh, clean, beautiful surroundings.100% / 100%. No downside. Pace of life slows to a babbling brook. As for the "Master Class" in watercolours, Rob is a knowledgeable professional fine artist who has managed to impart some of his skills on to one who has never picked up a paintbrush and the outcome was truly a work of art worthy of framing. Thank you Belinda and Rob, not forgetting Holly!

Elaine and Amy Knowles (Nova, Sylvie and Indiana Bones)

11 Jun 2022

We had a truly amazing holiday in Sienna. The accommodation was perfect for what we needed with 2 children and 2 dogs. We loved the pool which was used every day and our youngest's swimming has got so much better as a result. The location was great for what we wanted to do. All of the little extras that were so thoughtful made it such a lovely experience, like the info book, dog tags and all the equipment in the property. So great to meet you both and we look forward to visiting again. Thanks so much.

Laura & Paul O'Regan

Lovely place, a real home from home. Spacious and comfortable. Every need catered for. Thoughtful hosts and lovely dog (Holly). We have had a wonderful week. Thank you so much.

04 Jun 2022

Thank you for a comfortable stay it was nice to be welcomed and made feel happy that we came here. Given helpful advise about local area and where the local shops were. The only thing we all agreed that it would have been nice to be able to have a welcoming pack of general things like coffee, tea, milk, sugar, bread, eggs, bacon, etc for next morning even a evening meal package could be offered at extra cost as it is quite a ride after you have already been driving for a few hours. Also the accommodation which we stayed in is not really child friendly as had to watch out for our little girl the glass on the table. She knocked herself on it also we very constantly have to worry the glass was going to come off also the iron dining room chairs were not comfortable to sit on but apart from that very clean. We had everything we need to a nice stay. Would come back, just need a mop and bucket and maybe a swing and slide for young children to play on.
[Thank you for your feedback. We are self-catering accommodation, most of our guests prefer to do an online shop and have it delivered on arrival or pop into the local supermarket before they check in. With the increasing number of allergies, food intolerance and to reduce wastage we believe it is inadvisable to supply the food items that you listed. R&B]


03 Jun 2022

Another fabulous stay in Umber. So comfortable and beautifully equipped. Rob and Belinda are fantastic hosts and Holly loves her doggy treats. I did a watercolour workshop which was fun and Rob has great patience. A great place to base yourself to visit both Devon and Cornwall. I have booked to come back later in the year.

We have had a lovely stay - thank you very much! The cottage is beautifully appointed and the pool area is lovely (and the pool a great temperature)! We really enjoyed staying somewhere that is genuinely dog friendly - Vannie had a great time! Great hosting too, we appreciated having you on hand to answer our questions! Thank you.
P.S. We left some beers in the fridge we just couldn't fit in the car, please help yourself!

Lucy & Matt Cass

21 May 2022

Lovely "home from home". Everything you need for a comfortable, enjoyable stay in North Devon. Good location for visits to all the towns, villages around and on the coast. Great facilities - hope to return. Enjoyed Rob's workshop and am going to give "loose watercolours" a try. I was talking to an arty lady in Bude this morning who sells Rob's art in her studio. She said she loves the paintings. Pat.
Utensils great and particularly the amount of thought - loved knife sharpener for example. Trevor.

Pat & Trevor Dent

21 May 2022

We enjoyed our stay at Ochre very much. The pool was perfect for our daughter who wanted to swim every day. The house was nice and warm when we got out of the pool and the shower welcome. The kitchen saw many a meal made, thanks for providing oil! Amazing to see the transformation you've made to the house and the buildings, fantastic job! We will be this way again.

Ben, Cole and Cassie

07 May 2022

We have had the most lovely stay, thank you! There was everything we needed in the cottage and we were very comfortable. Everything has been thought of and all the furnishings/fittings have been done to the highest standard. The welcome pack and local map was very much appreciated and we can't think of any improvements! It was exactly what we wanted (and needed) and we definitely hope to come again.

Caroline and Jed Thomson

03 May 2022

Lovely comfortable cottage, very homely. Super patio and pool area. Spotlessly clean. Super bathroom. Comfy beds. Fluffy towels. Watercolour workshop - fun and instructive. Rob survived us very well. We would thoroughly recommend.

Nikki Vincent and Lori North

29 Apr 2022

Comfortable, clean, modern accommodation. Everything we needed is here. Fantastic plunge pool, loved by kids. The only downside (if pushed!) is having to drive everywhere due to remoteness. No shop or pub within walking distance. As mentioned to you, holiday cottages website/booking was not great as not live system and communication was poor."
[Thanks for your feedback, the kids really did enjoy the pool! One of the benefits of our location is our quiet and peaceful rural location away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Bookings for short breaks and non-standard holidays via have to be confirmed by us, standard weeks can be booked live. Hope this helps. R&B]

Umber Cottage was an amazing experience with their lovely pool and sunny days. We all slept very well on their deluxe beds with nice firm pillows. The shower/wet room had the perfect temperature to suit our needs. The overall rating of Umber is a solid 10/10!

The Haworths

22 Apr 2022

What an absolutely amazing time we had, Robert and Belinda were so welcoming and friendly and made us feel so comfortable. The cottage is immaculate, very stylish and clean, the log fire was so cosy and the grounds, pool, etc are amazing, absolutely perfect.

Julie and Stephen Dawber and Spud

21 Apr 2022

Lovely, clean, modern and well equipped accommodation. Cream tea on arrival was delicious and very thoughtful - as were the departure biscuits. Patio area was great. Kids loved having access to the pool and the selection of 'toys' to take to the beach, etc. We loved the log burner - and are now going to get one ourselves! We've had a wonderful short break and will definitely recommend to friends. Can't think of any improvements... maybe somewhere to rinse wetsuits."
[Thanks for your lovely feedback and glad you had a wonderful time staying with us. There is a wash station beside the garage for wetsuits, muddy boots, sandy feet and dogs plus a hanging/drying area for wetsuits in the garage. R&B]

Beautifully presented and immaculate throughout, we loved our stay here! Fantastic friendly hosts who genuinely wanted your stay to be special. We would love to come back if you would have us!

16 Apr 2022

Best dog friendly accommodation we have stayed in - fantastic walks, appreciate the small touches like the dog tags. We understand the need for sofas to be covered but suggest a quick wash as the waterproof cover had a bit of a doggy odour. (Very minor point!). The grounds and the plunge pool were in great condition and we all, particularly our boys, really enjoyed them. The cottage itself had everything (and more!) that we needed - shower pressure and temperature much appreciated! Hope to visit again next year, thank you!
[We do apologise for the doggy blanket, they are always washed between guests and everwhere is thoroughly disinfected. We will pay special attention to this in future, thanks R&B]

Dan and Lisa Harding

16 Apr 2022

We have had an amazing week. The cottage is beautiful, has everything you could need and really felt like home. The pool is fab and the boys have enjoyed using it every day. We cannot wait to come back and bring the family with us.

Ellie & Jon Richards

30 Oct 2021

A wonderful 'no faults' stay in Sienna. From the time we arrived to leaving, the hospitality has been amazing. The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Location allows you to do as much or as little as you want to do. The decor, furniture, fixings, etc are all of an incredible standard. To be honest, I don't think there is anything you could improve. We will definitely be back, hopefully in the warmer months with family joining in the other cottages.

Cassie and Alister Jennings

30 Oct 2021

Lovely place to stay with everything you can think of. Love all the design and decoration. Great taste! Rob's artwork is wonderful. Perhaps the only thing we did miss was a coffee machine! Thank you for such a comfortable stay.

Francis and Louise Leary

29 Oct 2021

Had a wonderful week at Umber and Gallery Cottages. The cottage was lovely and comfortable with all needs catered for. The pool and grounds were an added bonus. Lovely hosts with lots of local info, there if we needed you but not over the top. Will def stay again.

Sarah and Ed Lines

16 Oct 2021

Thank you Belinda, Rob and Holly for a wonderful stay. A beautiful spot, lovely cottages and a great welcome. Umber cottage was very comfortable and accessible, log burner made it cosy on a rainy cold night. Location of the cottages is great, peace and quiet away from town but close by car to great beaches, lakes and sea. We had a tricky moment but you were so kind. We will be back. Thanks.

Mr & Mrs Spillett

We have had an excellent short break. The cottage is beautiful, and decorated and equipped to a very high standard. Layout has worked well for our daughter's wheelchair. Good base for exploring North Devon and Cornwall. Will definitely recommend to family and friends and hope to revisit ourselves.

I have just had another great week in Umber and it was my second stay this year. Enjoyed it so much so I have booked to come again next May. I did one of Rob’s watercolour workshops during my stay and really enjoyed it. It is a really peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Rob and Belinda are perfect hosts and Holly dog is such a sweetie and I get my doggie fix. Ate out a couple of times and there are some great local restaurants not far away. Can’t wait to come back.

We really enjoyed our stay at Ochre. Fully equipped lodge and very useful information provided in the welcome folder. We were fortunate to have great weather and enjoyed cooling down in the plunge pool after our day trips. Belinda and Rob have been fantastic during our stay. We will definitely be back!

We have really enjoyed our holiday. Accommodation was warm, modern and clean and the log fire was fabulous. Also the use of the plunge pool was a bonus as the weather was great! The hosts were great and welcomed our dogs as well as us. Thank you Belinda and Rob.

24 Sep 2021

We were welcomed on arrival to such a lovely accommodation, run by a wonderful family with their dog Holly. We were very pleased with both the property and all the added extras. We have already booked for next year for longer! Stunning, peaceful and very much needed for us all. Thanks again. Will and JoJo.

Everything was fantastic, we really hope we can come back soon. Hosts were fabulous!

We have stayed in many cottages before and usually the description has been disappointing when we arrived but not Gallery Cottages!!! We must say that Sienna and hosts at Gallery Cottages have been absolutely amazing and we have booked for two weeks next year already. The beds, the quality of the fittings, the bathroom and the general open plan of the property has made it so much easier for one of our party who is a wheelchair user. The general position of Gallery Cottages allows access to many beaches easily, far enough away from the tourism but close enough to drive to within 20 minutes. We will be recommending Gallery Cottages to many of our friends. See you again next year. Thanks again.

We have had such a lovely week, we would like to thank Belinda and Rob for their kind hospitality. Everything here was lovely, clean and we have enjoyed every minute! Would highly recommend! Thanks again!

Belinda and Rob are two of the nicest people and hosts. Ochre is wonderful, every need has been thought of and then some. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and so did the dogs. The pool area was the icing on the cake for us. The scones were lush and love the cookies to take home. All in all one of the nicest place we have stayed in and will definitely be back. Didn't like to leave the doors open at night, so the bedroom was a little stuffy at night but that is the only negative.

Fabulous!! What a beautiful cottage, we have absolutely loved it here. Tyler loves the pool (we might have one at home now!). Loved the small touches such as cream tea on arrival, hand soap, tea towels, dishwasher tablets, etc - very handy. Hosts are fabulous, very friendly and, of course, the lovely Holly. Very impressed with Rob's paintings - need to do a painting session on our next visit. Thank you for making our week so lovely.

We have had an amazing time. The cottage was perfect for us, modern, spacious and clean. The beds were so comfortable. All the touches such as scones, games and all you need added to it. The children loved the pool and all in such beautiful setting. Thank you.

Loved it! Thanks for a lovely stay! Pool definitely loved by the kids and accommodation extremely comfortable! Maybe just some fly plugs as there were a lot in the kitchen, this is minor though. Thank you!

Lovely well presented accommodation providing all the amenities you need. Warm and welcoming hosts. Can't find fault with anything, just wish we'd have had better weather to make the most of the beautiful coastline and other attractions. Thank you so much Belinda, Rob and Holly. You should be proud of your beautiful place! Thanks again.

Beautiful cottage, great facilities and fantastic hosts! Only thing we missed was a dining table, couldn't get on with the stools for long periods.

Rachel Rogers

14 Aug 2021

I cannot fault anything about Umber Cottage. Spotlessly clean, modern and so well thought out with additional touches like scones and cream on arrival (wonderful!). I cannot recommend Umber enough and I don't want to leave. Didn't get to use the pool as we were too busy but it was warm and in a peaceful setting. So will 100% give it a try next time. If you want a stunning cottage with easy access to beaches in the area then this is just perfect. I cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful time at Gallery Cottages. I can honestly say this has been one of the best holidays we have had and the boys LOVED it! You have a beautiful piece of paradise here and we can't wait to return. The attention to detail has blown me away and you really have thought of everything. My brother and his wife are visiting in October and already told them they are in for a treat. Hope to see you very soon. Thank you for such a great stay.

Morwenna Lindsay

07 Aug 2021

Wow! Thank you for everything. We have had a lovely holiday at your beautiful home. Highly recommend! Spotlessly clean, very modern. Perfect for a peaceful get away but within easy reach of all the beaches and hustle and bustle.

Vicky and Stuart Wood

07 Aug 2021

We have had such a lovely stay, thank you both so much. Very welcoming and accommodating. Scones and biscuits on arrival/leaving, such a lovely touch and much appreciated. Can't fault a thing! We will be back!!
Couple of suggestions we thought might be useful/attractive for parents with young babies/children. Maybe a swing or small outdoor play frame? Also a package to include a child step, add on toilet seat, non-slip bath mat, bottle warmer, etc... just to save people bringing these items with them. Access to a dryer.

Holly Ewen

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here at Ochre. Belinda and Rob have been perfect hosts going above and beyond everything we needed for a wonderful stay here in beautiful Devon. The cottage exceeded our expectations with tasteful decor and stunning artwork. Everything is of the highest quality. We particularly enjoyed the pool with its stunning views, our son spent a lot of time playing in there. We will definitely be back.

Dervla Goldie

Fantastic stay, lovely cottages, superb relaxing area. Hosts very knowledgeable and helpful. Couldn't have asked for a more relaxing holiday. Thank you.
P.S. Best fish and chips ever from the van in Bradworthy.

Andy Henderson

23 Jul 2021

Thank you for your hospitality. Everything was perfect! Very clean, loved the pool area and stunning views. Agatha loved the pool. All the little extras were appreciated like books, games and kitchen equipment. The welcome afternoon tea also a lovely idea. I would highly recommend for all age groups. You are very good at what you do. Thanks again.

Suzanne Wordley

23 Jul 2021

Absolutely terrific week in Umber. Belinda, Rob and Holly are marvellous hosts, full of great advice and tips, and nothing too much trouble. Cottage, grounds and facilities are faultless and so thoughtfully appointed. Already can't wait to return next year, thank you so much!

Amy Henderson

23 Jul 2021

This is the second time we have been welcomed to Gallery Cottages and we have enjoyed an excellent stay both times. The cottages are very clean and well equipped and we love the quiet location. The hosts Belinda and Rob (and Holly!) Are lovely and friendly and provide plenty of information in the cottage to help you with your stay - whether it be deciding where to visit or working the washing machine! Best regards.

Denise Baines and Cecilia Bentley

17 Jul 2021

Thank you so much for a fantastic break. The cottages are so incredibly spick and span and so well equipped, and the cream tea on arrival and brownies on departure were wonderful touches. We would love to return and will be recommending you left, right and centre including on! Thank you again for a wonderful break. The girls loved the pool - a great addition.

Daisy, Ryan, Alice and Grace

17 Jul 2021

We felt very comfortable and welcome here. Great amenities and everything felt well thought of. The only thing we missed was a more traditional dining chair. We ate in most days and the stools are a little hard to sit on and eat in comfort. (Also, for older guests this would be a real struggle). We really hope to return for another stay and hope for sun and a chance to use the pool next time. Thank you for a lovely holiday. We will recommend to friends and family to come and stay.

Simone and Steve Sagi

10 Jul 2021

This is a lovely peaceful location. Sienna is well fitted out and beautifully decorated. We had a great welcome and were able to switch off and relax. A proper holiday. Thank you.

Sharon Evans

10 Jul 2021

We have had a wonderful stay. The space in and around Ochre has been great. The only thing missing for us (young family) is the blackout blind option but in all honesty it's not something we have found in other places we stay. Many thanks for such a welcoming holiday and hope to see you again. The Nortons xxx.
[Thanks for the suggestion, will definitely be investing in some blackout blinds. R&B]

Rebecca Norton

03 Jul 2021

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were made to feel extremely welcome. Bob's loved it too! Cottages are 5 star and have everything you possibly need. Folders are very helpful, so were yourselves. Pool area is very relaxing and a real bonus. Everywhere is very clean and tidy, just how we like things. Really looking forward to visiting again. Thank you!
[Holly is missing Bob already! R&B]

Nikki Mackay

03 Jul 2021

Lovely hosts. Thank you so much for all your help and advice. Very modern cottage in pleasant rural surroundings. Well equipped kitchen. Comfortable bedroom and well presented bathroom. Loved the pool garden and the pool itself - lovely. Would recommend to friends and family.

Sue and Vernon Salmon

02 Jul 2021

We have had the very best stay. This place is absolutely perfect in every way, from the location (so peaceful but close to many great places to see and do) to the way it's been built, to the fact that you guys have thought of everything. Thank you so much, we will be back! A gem of a place!
p.s. Thomas will miss seeing Holly every day!

Clare McGroarty

26 Jun 2021

A super place to relax and unwind. The cottage was so comfortable and had everything we could wish for. A dog safe and friendly environment. It's been a pleasure to stay here. Superb hosts. Many thanks, Jennifer, Robert, Musket, Fife and Drum.
P.S. We will return.

Jennifer and Robert Banks

25 Jun 2021

Thank you Rob and Belinda for one of the best experiences. From the minute we arrived to afternoon tea. Cottages well fitted out and spotlessly clean. They have thought of everything. Friendly and thoughtful. We also done the Painting class and it was awesome and truly made me think 🤔 I can try everything.
Thank you both, until the next time x x

Eleanor Walton

24 Jun 2021

Fantastic stay. Nothing was too much trouble, Friendly, spotless, thought of everything. Did the painting class and it was awesome for beginners. Peaceful yet close to beach, big towns, lots of walks. Exceeded all our expectations. Thank you both xxx. Ellie and Tony, Jayne and Michael.

What a find Gallery Cottages has been. After an 11 hour journey from North Yorkshire all we wanted was a relaxing stay. Belinda, Rob and Holly, you have absolutely smashed it, there were no negatives at all. Myself, Wendy, Mary, Millie, Bramble and Maggie have loved your hospitality. The standard of your cottages is far more than you charge. We will be taking up your offer for sure. Take care and we wish you all the success you deserve.

Wayne & Wendy Boyes

11 Jun 2021

Excellent rural location, fabulous barn conversion, glorious pool and garden, amazing hosts - thank you both. We visited loads of places, ate out, drank cider and had a BBQ. Luxurious bath, quality shower. Bed a little too firm for me (Anne). Art session... WOW... I'm in the right direction now Rob!

Anne and Neil Law

07 Jun 2021

What a wonderful stay! We absolutely loved our time here. The cottage was so well equipped and we felt so comfortable staying here. The plunge pool was an added bonus that we all enjoyed especially with the beautiful weather we had. Your welcome scones were delicious and parting cookies equally as yummy. We all can't wait to come back again. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable, all your recommendations were fabulous! Please put us on your waiting list as we may very well be in England this summer if international travel does not open up. Thanks again for your help with Paisley.

Lori Roberts

04 Jun 2021

The bedrooms were so comfy and restful (we both slept so well all week). We loved the kitchen area and comfy sofas in the evening. A great size TV (smart TV so I could still watch You Tube, thank you) The outside space is perfect, sadly we couldn't use the BBQ (next time hopefully). The pool area is a lovely space. We did sit up there one evening on the comfy sofa area and watched the sun set, magical! Thank you both so much.

Janice and John Eggers

Very spacious and comfortable. All amenities were catered for. Good beds! We enjoyed the quiet rural setting. The hosts were very welcoming and were helpful to our particular needs.

Brendan and Anita Cleverly

29 May 2021

We had a lovely week, the cottage was "home from home" after a rather damp few days. It was always lovely to know we had 5 star accommodation to return to in the evenings. No negatives at all and no comments to make regarding improvements as it was perfect for us. We will be back! Many thanks to Rob and Belinda for their hospitality.

Chris and Gail Hale

22 May 2021

Lovely. Nice space. Lovely beds. Excellent shower. Great enclosed garden. With UK weather a hot tub would be more used! Only critic is the bedside table too small and in second bedroom nowhere to put anything, need a slim shelf or table or a deeper bedside with drawers/ corner unit/ narrow chest for second bedroom?? Gallery and workshops and excellent addition. Thanks for being such good hosts and a lovely touch was the gift to take home and cream tea on arrival and being so doggy friendly. Thank you x. Dog tags - very good idea!

Nicola Desmond

20 May 2021

Rob and Belinda and Holly-dog are fabulous hosts and Umber is a beautiful cottage which has everything you could wish for including the log burner which I made good use of in the evenings. The peace and tranquility is wonderful and the starry night skies are just fantastic. I could lie in bed at night and look up through the velux window and see everything. The cottage is perfectly situated for the beaches and lots of walks. I enjoyed it so much I booked a further week in September.

Lovely stay. Belinda was a fab host. Cottage is beautiful and spacious, with everything you need for a week away.

Siobhan and Natalie Scerri-Hodge

15 May 2021

We've had a lovely week, lovely cottage and really well equipped - if we had only one thing to mention it would be great to have a broom to sweep the floor - probably only because of the dog! Oh, and the seal on the bath plug is a bit loose so it drains while you're in it. But, thanks for a great week. We love the cottage.
[Oops! Should have been a broom, our mistake. Bath seal now replaced. R&B]

Sarah Clark

15 May 2021

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely cottage. Despite unpromising weather, we've been out on coastal explorations every day and not been drenched! Really well appointed here, so much to see and much walking to be done. We've loved doing yoga on the lawn in the mornings too! An extremely welcome break after a long and strange year at home! We will be back!! The cream teas were very welcome too.
P.S. Holly is adorable and the homemade chocs were delicious and a lovely personal touch. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Alex and Liz Ward

14 May 2021

We had a lovely peaceful stay at Sienna, just what we needed. The house was wonderfully equipped with everything we could need. I only wish it could have been warmer so we could have used the outdoor space more, it's a beautiful location and we will definitely be back.

Jen Mockridge

08 May 2021

Just returned today from. 2 week stay in Umber. This was my third attempt after 2 lockdown cancellations last year and it did not disappoint. Umber is a wonderful cottage and beautifully furnished and equipped. The courtyard garden was a real sun trap and for the cool evenings the log burner was great. The gardens and pool area are great and it is a lovely place to sit and read amongst the peace and quiet. Rob and Belinda are the perfect hosts and Holly their labrador is such a cutie and a big sister to my own lab. Umber is ideally situated with easy access to the north Devon and Cornwall coast not far away . There is no light pollution so the night skies when clear are amazing. The pink moon earlier this week was stunning. I enjoyed it so much I am going again for another week later this year.

Great stay, very well equipped, you've thought of everything! The scones were a lovely touch. Will definitely recommend to friends and family. Thanks, Hayley, Simon, Rex and Maisy.

Hayley Perkins

29 Apr 2021

We really enjoyed our stay in Umber. The cottage is spacious and beautifully designed and the grounds are also beautiful and tranquil. The hosts were amazing - we could not have asked for anything more. The welcome and leaving gifts were very thoughtful and the information guides provided were very useful when planning days out. We, and our dog, have really enjoyed staying at Umber and felt very settled - and so we would definitely come back next time we visit Devon!

Anita Cartlidge

17 Apr 2021

Exceptionally appointed cottages. The quality and care of the owners is evident throughout. Superb cream tea on arrival, friendly and helpful hosts. Location super for visiting North Devon and Cornwall. Top class!!
Child review: I think that the cottage was very good in terms of view out of the garden, was beautiful and it was handy that there was a big field that we can walk the dogs. There were no complaints from me. Thea

Claire Keech

17 Apr 2021

We have had a fantastic time staying in Ochre. The cottage is beautifully designed for the family including the dog! It is extremely comfortable and we were made to feel very welcome. The folder of info was incredibly helpful and the cream tea and cookies were a delightful touch. We have no negative feedback, one addition to the kitchen that would be useful would be a cheese grater [It is in the corner cupboard. R&B]. Everything was immaculate - we have been so impressed. Thank you and we hope to stay again.

Debra Flynn

16 Apr 2021

Very happy with the cottage; well thought out and spacious. Pool area is fabulous. The only suggestion we would make is that a few steps up onto the grassed area would be really useful. The dogs inevitably jump up there and a step or two would help when it's time to climb up onto the grass to clean up after the dogs. We would certainly recommend to anyone visiting the area. 10/10.
[Thank you for your suggestion. We have now installed steps up to the lawn. R&B]

Paul and Anna Hood

01 Apr 2021

The holiday cottage is fantastic and beautifully finished. The location is great for visiting local beaches and Devon/Cornwall attractions. A great place to stay with the family and the dogs over the festive period. I look forward to a return journey in the spring/summer. Slight gripe: the noise from the extraction fan from the master bedroom is disruptive.
[Thanks for the advice about the fan. All the fans have now been replaced to reduce noise disruption. R&B]

Tristan Kelly

Really enjoyed our stay. Everything you need plus the woodburner was great! Loved the underfloor heating, made the cottage feel really cosy. Thank you for all your recommendations!

James Davinson

12 Dec 2020

Thank-you. We have had a fabulous time! The location of the cottages is perfect, as are the facilities. The cottage itself has everything that we have needed and more, and was easy with the dogs. The watercolour workshop was an added bonus and very enjoyable.

Sara & Richard

31 Oct 2020

We enjoyed our stay so much we don't want to go home. Every detail was thought of making a true home from home. Even down to the dog tags! Genius! We cannot wait to re-book for next year. Thank you


31 Oct 2020

Very accessible for wheelchair user. Lovely kitchen and room layout. Heating very powerful even when turned down low, super warm at night. Great location - bet it is stunning in summer by the pool.

Charlotte & Martin

30 Oct 2020

Loved "Ochre" - Fully equipped, stylish, comfortable with amazing art scattered throughout. Belinda, Rob and Holly were perfect hosts. Loved cream tea on arrival and folder was very informative. Only downside - no oven gloves, DVD player (youngest suggested!). We'd definitely come again! Thanks.
[Oops! Oven gloves taken out to be washed and not put back, our mistake. R&B]

Rachel, Dave, Sophie, Sadie and Barney

23 Oct 2020

A beautiful cottage, well situated in the heart of the countryside. A very warm and friendly welcome. Cream tea on arrival was a plus! The cottage was very clean, well equipped and kept us warm and cosy throughout our stay. Easy access to fields and walks for us and the dogs. Belinda's cakes were amazing. I believe all four of us will be back to visit again. Allison, Lee, Sam and John would like to say thank you for a lovely stay in a beautiful location.

Allison Anderton

23 Oct 2020

The most fantastic stay. Everything was so well thought out, from facilities to layout. The plunge pool is an exciting addition and nothing felt like too much trouble. The guide book is well written and the cream tea a welcome surprise. Thank you for a fantastic stay! 10/10 - look forward to coming again.

16 Oct 2020

A lovely warm welcome and an added bonus with scones, clotted cream and jam. Lovely accommodation that was clean, warm and cosy. Well equipped and wonderful towels and bathroom!! It was a pleasure to return to after our days out. Ted, our Lakeland Terrier, loved the cottage and many walks he had whilst here. It was ideal for North Devon and Cornish borders. We would highly recommend the fish and chip van plus pizza van. We struggled with our phone signal but hey, we're on holiday!! Thank you for a most enjoyable stay and to to return soon.
P.S. Saw two deer this morning!

Paul and Karen Bull and Ted

30 Sep 2020

A fabulous, cosy place with all the facilities we needed. Close to everywhere we wanted to visit and I personally love the Devon lanes! The warm and informative welcome was great. We felt perfectly safe here re Covid-19 and wouldn't hesitate to stay again and recommend you to others. Thank you x.

Yvonne Goldsmith

26 Sep 2020

Thank you for such a lovely stay. We found the cottage to be very comfortable and the accommodation excellent. While we didn't use the shared garden and pool area too much, we thought they were both excellent and if we weren't out and about so much, we would definitely have used them more. Cottages are in a good location for exploring the surrounding area. We would definitely stay again. Many thanks.

Andy & Katy

19 Sep 2020

We had another lovely stay. Extremely comfortable, spacious and airy cottage. Easy to keep clean and tidy.
Rob and Belinda are such a welcoming couple.
Highly recommended.

Lovely clean cottage, excellent facilities. Comfy beds. No negatives, except we couldn't get the barbecue to work but maybe user error! Hole in the fence discovered by small escape artist. Great stay, would defo recommend!

Katie Macdonald

12 Sep 2020

Absolutely wonderful in every way. The cottage is beautifully done, with just about everything you could imagine needing. Facilities are superb and incredibly well maintained, and the hosts are just marvelous. We've felt so at home and looked after and so has our pooch! We are booking immediately to return. Thank you.

Nina Easton

28 Aug 2020

Well equipped. Homely and comfortable. Clean. Modern and lovely decor. Pool looked lovely but due to the weather couldn't make full use of it. Host was very helpful, nice and informative. Dog friendly. Overall lovely stay, would definitely come back and recommend to friends.

Lisa Appaya

28 Aug 2020

Lovely cottage very well equipped and helpful owners. Pool lovely especially when you can't go to the beach. Dog tags are a great idea. Art classes are a definite bonus and were thoroughly enjoyed. Shame there's no opening window in the bedroom with the French doors. We really enjoyed our stay and will hopefully come back again.

Clare Cavell

22 Aug 2020

Just lovely! It was the little touches that were the "cherry on the top" – the online guide you shared, the dog tags – and the scones! Five star – and well worth the 7 hour drive. Would thoroughly recommend. The pictures we bought will be a great reminder of a great holiday. Thank you!

Alison Williams

22 Aug 2020

We have enjoyed a thoroughly peaceful and relaxing holiday at Sienna. The attention to detail from the "just from the oven scones" and cream tea to Charlie's ID – very thoughtful. We had a great time exploring locally and catching up with Cornish friends; with the plunge pool and garden to enjoy early evening. Izzy really enjoyed her art lesson and I did too as an observer – very interesting. We will certainly recommend you. Thank you and wishing you every success for the future.

Sue, Paul & Izzy (& Charlie)

14 Aug 2020

Fantastic cottage – thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Everything immaculate inside and out; amazing attention to detail and lots of little nice touches that made it feel extra special. Lovely welcome and hosting. Also really enjoyed Rob's art workshop – going home feeling inspired. Can't wait to come again! Thank you both so much.

Helen and Mark Preston

18 Jul 2020

We've had a fantastic 2 week stay in Ochre with our three dogs. The cottage is superb and is really well set up for holiday lets with everything you need. The plunge pool was great on a hot day too. Lots of beach options within reasonable drive time, lovely pubs also at Hartland Quay, Abbotsham and Bradworthy. Very peaceful but lots to do if you don't mind a short drive. Owners Belinda and Rob are really welcoming and know the area. They have done a superb job in what's been created here. We've had such a good holiday. Thank you.

Nick Hoof and Kerry Pugh

11 Jul 2020

We really enjoyed our stay, everything had been thought of, right down to the flask for tea and coffee. I honestly couldn't think of anything else that could be changed or improved. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Gallery cottages are simply stunning accommodation in a wonderful location. We have stayed here a couple of times in Ochre and Umber and couldn’t have been happier during our stays.
They are absolutely amazing – so well thought-out, lovingly designed and decorated, very well equipped – couldn’t wish for anything more. A true home away from home but better!!
Rob & Belinda were amazing hosts who were always on hand whenever we needed them.
We loved it here, didn’t want to leave - would highly recommend

We have had the most relaxing, comfortable stay in Sienna. We found everything that we needed and felt very welcome here. It was a pleasure to meet you both and the doggies, of course. Many thanks for the delicious scones onour arrival they were ideal. We feel very chilled having enjoyed such a laid back week in the beautiful countryside. Peace and quiet - sheer BLISS! Many thanks for everything.

Jan and Simon Browne

17 Nov 2019

I was blown away at the standard of the accommodation, in fact I would love to live here.
Greeted with scones and jam on a wet day and a very warm room. Sienna is beautifully laid out and decorated throughout. An amazing place to use as a base to explore North Devon.
If I wasn’t going to move here in December I would definitely have booked here again.
Thank you for making me welcome xx

We have had a brilliant time here in this beautiful part of Devon, a shame we could only stay 5 days with a busy weekend coming up for us (we will have to come back).
The cottage and owners are wonderful. Great hosts, lovely cream tea welcomed us after the drive here. Dogs really friendly to our dog. Gave us tips on places to go and see and gave us names of great places to eat too.
We will definitely return.

Phil & Frances Marsh

01 Nov 2019

Lovely clean cottage, full of everything we needed. Open plan living / kitchen area was perfect for our dog - Enid.
Enid managed to slip through the mesh under the back of the hedge (to the left) once so may need securing more, just a thought? And due to a rainy week, meaning more hot showers, another towel each would have been perfect
Will definitely be back. Great welcome and friendly faces throughout the week – Thanks!

Helen Green, Frankie Crewe, Hayley Chatwin & Mike Huckfield (Ochre)

01 Nov 2019

A+ We have had a wonderful stay, thank you both. The lodge is amazing, very comfortable and cosy home from home. Shower is amazing!!
We would just a say a little push along hoover of some sort just to allow us to keep on top of dog hairs!! (Our little one is malting a little)
Thanks so much, it’s been lovely xx

Sharon, Simon, Blake & Diesel Clay (Sienna)

It was such a lovely surprise! Fantastic rooms and facilities so that we felt right at home. You were so welcoming as well; nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much! Loved the washing machine; loved the scones; loved the homely touches. Dogs loved it; garden beautiful. 10/10!!!! FANTASTIC

Everything was perfect. We look forward to returning.

We have absolutely loved staying here, it has been really relaxing, quiet and just what we needed.
The cottage is really well equipped with good quality equipment, we even baked brownies, scones and a cake, no problem!
You have both been really helpful and friendly hosts, we have really enjoyed meeting you and of course Peanut has too, especially Holly & Poppy.
The only thing we would add is somewhere for muddy shoes and jackets, near the door. Also we thought your book was super helpful and humorous at times.

Firstly thank you Rob & Belinda for giving us a great holiday. You have both created a hidden gem at Glebe Farm Barn.
The accommodation was perfect. The children both loved the plunge pool. Thank you for the cream teas of arrival.
The property was clean and brilliant facilities. We will be back. Thank you.

We have really enjoyed our stay at Gallery Cottages and the cottage provided the perfect base.
From the initial friendly welcome, including cream tea (much appreciated – thank you) to the quality of the accommodation which exceeded our expectations – especially the shower – great after a long day at the beach. The kids especially liked the plunge pool and obviously Poppy & Holly!! The impressive visitor information pack helped us plan some fantastic days out.
We will definitely recommend Gallery Cottages to family and friends, and hope to visit again soon – thank you Rob & Belinda and good luck with the 3rd cottage. Best wishes.

Accommodation was beautiful and very well equipped and the information pack was great. The book shelf is a lovely touch, though I am gutted I didn’t get to finish Graham Norton!
Our only slight issue was no window to open in bedroom and winter duvet – so very warm at night.
Thank you very much for a lovely holiday.

Well, what can I say … a really lovely cottage, beautifully appointed in an amazing setting.
What makes the holiday cottage stand out though, are the pool garden, lawn area and the extra field for dogs to romp in!
We love the area anyway but it is particularly peaceful and restful here.
Thank you very much – we will definitely be returning!

Our second stay here and even better than last year. The addition of the gas BBQ meant dinner was always an easy option. Ochre offered everything we needed including the space to sit outside in the sun. In theory, we could have spent our whole day up here, as the green spaces meant the children could play and be a little independent (both aged 11). Leaving here really relaxed and loathed to go!! Thank you Belinda & Rob for making our stay such a success.
And the watercolour class – what a great thing to try while away. Rob you are a very patient teacher – thank you!!

We have loved our week at Ochre cottage. In fact, we really don’t want to go home. A beautiful and stylish renovation in a picturesque setting. You have thought of everything – even extra dog bowls! We’ve had lots of fun days out, but also relished the time spent at Gallery Cottages.
There are lots of great visits within an hour’s drive. We particularly enjoyed Westward Ho!
Everything about Ochre cottage is high quality. It’s clear you have invested in giving your guest’s a wonderful “top-end” venue for their holidays.

We have really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was surprisingly spacious, modern and well kitted out. Your folder was particularly useful for selecting the right beach for dog walking. We enjoyed the barbeque and the main garden was a treat.
There wasn’t much we missed – it was the small things – colander, larger towels for men, shelf or drawer in bedside unit and small chest in 2nd room. Main thing for us was that we were unaware dogs couldn’t be left in the property on their own. We managed to switch around our plans but it did mean we couldn’t go out as much as a group.
Other than that – fantastic holiday. Thank you for your hospitality!

We had a lovely welcome with a cream tea waiting. The accommodation is stunning, very comfortable and tastefully furnished. Beds very comfortable with crisp lovely bedding. Bathroom is lovely, very practical, great shower and bath is handy for children. The site and gardens are immaculate, swimming pool was cold but lovely (had to use a garden chair to help to get in, as mobility problems) as there is no rail. Seating in garden is lovely, secluded and peaceful. The equipment provided is first class with everything you could possibly need.
We had a lovely holiday and would return and recommend to friends and family.
You have provided lovely accommodation with beautiful artwork with all year round facilities, lovely wood-burner. Thanks again.

Thank you for making us so welcome. Loved Ochre and the pool garden. Wonderful setting. Very clean and well equipped.
Just a comment: fan in bathroom makes a continuous hum, even when not switched on.
Would be glad to know of future offers and info. Would love to visit again. Thank you.

Loved Gallery Cottages, the owners are lovely people – helpful and very welcoming and if you did happen to have a problem, very helpful.
Beautiful peaceful place, with everything provided, including warm welcome and cream tea.

What a fantastic place, suiting all our needs … and some.
The pleasure of an open plan kitchen with wood-burner. Pleasure of hi-tech lounge with old school games table. Pleasure of a beautiful bathroom with all you can dream of.
Good luck with this place, you deserve it, as it’s beautiful. See you soon.
We have taken the contact details sheet – with a desire to be back soon.

Clean, comfortable and dog friendly. Probably the best we’ve stayed in.
Just to let you know – lounge door isn’t easy to close & curtain in singles bedroom keeps falling off the rail when window is open.
Well done to you both, you should be very proud.

Just had a lovely 2 night stay at Rob & Belinda’s beautiful chalet.
Very peaceful and beautiful surroundings. Tastefully decorated and very modern.
Very friendly hosts, that were very informative. Even though they are on site they don’t intrude on your privacy. Would come back again! Thank you.

It was such a lovely surprise! Fantastic rooms and facilities so that we felt right at home.
You were so welcoming as well; nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much!
Loved the washing machine, loved the scones - homely touches. Dogs loved it. Gardens beautiful.
10 out of 10!!!!! FANTASTIC!

This is by far the best vacation we've had in a long time. The only feedback is that we would have loved a change of sheets since we stayed for more than 3 days. Apart from this, everything was absolutely perfect and would love to come back.

I loved the stay here, the rooms were lovely and particularly the shower because I can turn it on myself. (by Amber). I really enjoyed my stay at this cottage. The information pack was really important to our stay by using it for facilities and information. Very nice facilities in and outside cottage. (by Mia)
Really enjoyed our stay here, the accommodation was great and the beaches were lovely. Thank you, Sharon and Tony. (Mum and Dad).

We arrived much later than planned but it was no trouble at all. Belinda & Rob made us feel very welcome & everything was ready for us (the cream tea provided was delicious!) Friendly, well-behaved labradors Poppy & Holly kept a discreet watch on our comings & goings. The garden was lovely & quiet for an al fresco breakfast. A bit of travel required if you want pubs/shops/restaurants/activities but the cottage was perfect to come home to. Afternoon by the pool highly recommended!
