    I am reluctant to say how much we loved this cottage in case it becomes too fully booked.

    Very comfy cottage, spacious and attractive. Absolutely lovely welcome and generous welcome pack too. It is in a wonderful position as only a short walk down a track to find the Coastal Path with its stunning views and good walking. The cottage garden was full of birds and even two resident stoats. Only slight grumble was that the kitchen could do with updating, the fridge in particular has seen better times.

    Having grown up in Otterton I remember Monks Thatch from my walks along the lanes and coastal path as a child. What a treat to find that I could stay there! I took my very sprightly 84 year old father for a week and we were not disappointed. We were blessed with wonderful weather even though it was February. Working in the travel/ self catering industry means that I am probably one of the harshest critics but I can say that Monks Thatch is probably the best cottage I have stayed in. The location is perfect with views across fields to the sea. Walking straight from the doorstep. Quiet and not overlooked. Sally gave us a lovely greeting and had provided lots of extras - milk, eggs, bread, cake, biscuits. The cottage is spacious, light and airy and very comfortable. The beds were large, very comfy and with good quality bed linen....which made for some rather leisurely getting up! I am certain that I will return.

    It was everything that we expected, great location, clean, and inviting, Sally the owner was very welcoming, and the starter pack was the best we have received. This was a short notice long weekend stay,as we had already booked to go in September 16, we can,t wait to return.

    Comfy, quiet and easy holiday and a great location. Hosts attentive and we enjoyed the treats welcoming us. The area has hardly changed since I was a kid.

    Lovely cottage in a gorgeous location great for walking our dog. Sally was very welcoming and provided us with milk, bread, cake, biscuits, eggs, jam, we've been staying in cottages twice a year for about 12years and never received all this before! True you do have to pay for the electricity and oil but with showers the odd bath and putting the heating on in the evening for a few hours plus lights and the tv every night it only cost us just over £6. I guess in the past guests taken advantage so it seems fair to me that you pay for what you use. We would certainly love to come back again and would recommend Monks Thatch to anyone wanting a cottage in a tranquil setting but within walking distance of Otterton.
