Very comfortable, well equipped accommodation with amazing views of the valley and gardens. Fenced off enclosed garden for our dog to run around. The tea shop was an added bonus with delicious homemade cakes and snacks including gluten free. Lovely little gift shop and the added bonus of a nursery with a great stock of plants and grasses. Within easy reach of Seaton, Sidmouth, West Bay, Budleigh Salterton, Lyme Regis and Charmouth. We have rebooked next year to visit the many other beaches close by.

We've stayed at Gardener's Rest, the adjoining cottage on the property a few years ago and had wanted to return because we had a lovely time there previously though were prevented as international visitors by something known as the COVID pandemic. Booked Valley View by accident for September and liked it even better than Gardener's Rest, as it is bigger and somewhat more updated. Good space and everything you need is available except for a hair dryer (didn't see one but also didn't ask for one). There are also no accessible electrical outlets in the bedroom, so if you want to plug in a laptop or mobile phone, you'd need to do so in the sitting room. Decor and interior is somewhat dated but not an issue. Access to the gardens before and after public hours is a boon for days when you want to rest a bit and not stray far. Some windows (bedroom, sitting room patio doors) do face the tearoom, which is perhaps 100 feet away, so we did keep the curtains drawn on that side for some of the time but could open other windows for sun, most notably the side facing the view of the valley from which the cottage derives its name. And, again, before or after hours no one was around. The Gardener's Rest cottage does adjoin Valley View, and their entrance doors face one another, in addition to being about 10 feet apart, so you will likely see other holiday goers daily/regularly. Parking is easy. Honiton has good shops and restaurants (the Thai restaurant, notably) and local restaurants in the country have excellent Sunday roasts/a daily carvery.
