    The cottage is very cosy, comfortable and clean. The only thing that let's it down is the bathroom. The ceiling over the bath is extremely sloping, so much , you have to sit in the bath to shower. No problem for children and the agile, but a no go for older people. It is set in an idelic spot, all you can hear are birds, and overlooking the owners lovely garden.

    Lovely cottage beautifully clean, but having a bad back would have appreciated more comfortable beds. Beds aside it really is a lovely place and the owner is very welcoming and helpful. Very peaceful location in the middle of great countryside. Really enjoyed our stay and would go back.

    Beautiful cottage, well equipt and tidy. David and Caroline were very friendly and helpful, and we loved their welcome pack... It was a really lovely touch. Well placed if you don't mind driving to places, although not a great deal within walking distance. Didn't stop us though with trips to Sidmouth, Exeter and Escot. Actually can't wait to go back!

    Had a brilliant time. The cottage was in the perfect location to visit many of the attractions in both Devon and Dorset. The owners were the perfect hosts and we can't wait to visit again.
