Located on a sheep farm with views across the Axe Valley, it enjoys 150 acres of green fields and woodland.

    Beautiful view across the valley. No light pollution so star gazing is amazing. Very dog friendly with obvious care for the the livestock. Seaton town and beach just 10 mins away by car with other beaches close by. Jacuzzi wonderful.beds clean and very comfortable. Decor a little dated but not enough to spoil a holiday. Would definitely stay again.

    The cottage was warm and comfortable. It has a lovely outlook. There is a well stocked village shop and a butchers in the village about 1/2 mile away and a pub with a good menu. A very nice place to spend a break. One small complaint, the information said a basket of logs and kindling would be provided but we would have to purchase any more. None was provided.

    A lovely location with a warm and friendly owner. The house does need some updates but a little chintz never hurt anyone! Our main issue would be the cleanliness and appliances. The dishwasher door has lost its release cap so when opened plummets to the floor - if you haven't moved your foot then be prepared for some damage. The bedlinen, towels etc all lovely and clean but the house is covered in cobwebs and spiders. Not just on the ceilings but door frames, windows, curtains and skirting boards. I had to wash crockery and glassware before use as smelt musty and some were dirty.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments about the friendly owner, location, clean linen and towels - not sure I would agree the house is covered with cobwebs - previous reviewers have commented it was "Spotlessly Clean" on more than one occasion. We do our best each week to eliminate cobwebs, but there are lots of nooks and crannies - spiders also work 24/7 - we are only allowed in there once a week. Nevertheless, we will continue to battle the 8 legged fiends. Every house has the odd spider. Sorry about the dishwasher door - we were not aware it was serious until you brought it to our attention. I hope the free bottle of wine ameliorated you a little. Dishwasher is being replaced within the next few days so hopefully the crockery will be cleaner. Thank you again for pointing out some issues which we are dealing with to make future bookings even more enjoyable. I hope the score of 5/10 won't detract other people from booking our favourite cottage Ashley’s, as if previous high scores have proved; it is a wonderful place to stay for many reasons.
