A charming cottage, very comfortable and well equipped for our stay. Due to having renovations on our property we were there for just over five weeks. Ester and Steve were more than helpful and accommodating. The cottage is well placed for exploring East Devon with its seaside towns and the city of Exeter. Would definitely recommend!

A very enjoyable week. The weather was very warm,so we didn't get about as much as we would have liked, but we found the cottage kept cool and pleasant to relax. A really good base for East Devon. Steve and Esther lovely, helpful and friendly. Footpaths almost on the doorstep for doggie walks. Will certainly come again if we can.
