    This is a picture postcard thatched cottage and is wonderful inside and out. It is old which gives it real character but does make it difficult to clean so there were a few cobwebs. The location is very peaceful but there are 2 pubs serving food within walking distance and a small seaside town a short drive away with lots of restaurants, takeaways and a huge supermarket. Our only problem was the garden - we expected it to be very overgrown from previous reviews but still to be dog proof. It was not so we had to keep our dog tethered up all week which is a real shame.

    We had a lovely week at Stepps Cottage. It is a beautiful cottage and very old and interesting. It is also surrounded by other picture-perfect thatched cottages, with roses round their doors! Stepps Lane itself is very quiet, but not isolated. You can walk to 2 pubs in just a few minutes and it isn't far from main roads, to get out sight-seeing. You can walk to the coast path, up the lane from the cottage; it's a little over half a mile to get there and there are beautiful views. We were the first guests, since the property changed hands. We found it to be spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. Most things worked as they should. There were a couple of things missing equipment-wise, such as clothes pegs! But I expect the new owners have provided these items now. The rooms feel spacious. Neither the house, nor garden would be suitable for guests with mobility issues, but the website makes that clear. We enjoyed sitting on the sunny patio for morning coffee, and sitting there again, in the evening sun, after we had been out and about in East Devon and Dorset. There are lovely rural views from the house and garden. Unlike many holiday cottages, Stepps Cottage is not open-plan and this works better for guests with a dog, as we were, as doors can be shut to ensure your dog does not go where he shouldn't! The garden is fenced adequately to keep a small dog in. We felt Stepps Cottage was a very special place and would definitely consider staying there again.
