The area is a walkers’ paradise, with strolls along the banks of the River Otter or hill climbs offering magnificent views as far as Dartmoor.

July 2021
From looking and booking, to arrival and departure all instructions were easy to follow and communications were excellent. Even a local road closure and re-route for easy travel were sent to us prior to arrival. There are covid - care measures in place currently and the cottage and grounds are immaculately kept. There was a lovely afternoon tea welcome pack with homemade Devon scones and clotted cream and milk in the fridge. Angela and Stuart are wonderful hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them and they have thought of everything and more to ensure a relaxing and stress-less stay. The cottage is really well equipped with high quality furnishings & home wares - basically everything you'll need. Even surprised and relieved to find some scales as being diabetic, I have to weigh out my food and I'd forgotten to take some. Eco-friendly cleaning materials are provided as are Fairy liquid and Fairy non-bio washing pods to use as the properties utilise non mains water and waste treatment. There is also recycling facilities and waste bags supplied. There's a smart TV which you can use Netflix etc from your own account and good wifi signals. Also have laundry / ironing facilities etc. Honestly they've thought of everything. Everywhere is scrupulously clean, the beds are really comfortable and everything looks new. The cottage is in really pretty grounds, beautiful hanging baskets and flowers and own private patio and small garden, but you are welcome to use the field at the rear for sport (we played petanque & badminton - but it was too hot to do much more during our wonderful heat-wave week!) The electrically heated pool is well maintained, cleaned and serviced daily and is a great size for families. There is a covid- care rota system in place currently for the cottages to ensure safe and equally use of the pool. If you are going out for the day - ask the neighbouring cottage to swap or change times with you. We did and lazed around for a few days, so basically had the pool area to ourselves - heaven ! The cottages are also dog friendly and there's a big dog walking field just to the rear of the cottages as well as good walks nearby and although dog friendly, there's not one hair or doggy smell to be found anywhere. It's really, really clean. Its in a beautiful spot within easy access of Ottery-St-Mary, Exeter and beautiful beaches of Sidmouth, Exmouth, Sandy Bay and a little further the gorgeous Jurassic Coast. We're already planning to return...... if you're in any doubt about booking here - don't be - its gorgeous and you wont be disappointed. We'd recommend it to anyone. Thank you Angela and Stuart - can't wait to visit again !
