There is so much to do including the long beach at Seaton and its many attractions, including cliff walks, golf, fishing and its famous Colyford Tramway, which is only 5 minutes away!

Neighbouring Beer is a quaint coastal village which has its historic Caves and Pecorama with its Model Railway. Farway Countryside Park has a plethora of animals and playthings to amuse the children. The nearby popular seaside resorts of Sidmouth and Lyme Regis are just minutes away in opposite directions and need no introduction !

"A real find!"

My extended familiy and I recently celebrated my husbands 40th here, renting two of Mike's cottages. And we weren't disappointed. The cottages are in a superb location and offer real value… More

"A Peaceful retreat"

My family and I stayed in The Stables on Whitwell Farm last week and we had a great time - especially as the sun shone all week. The cottage was large and comfortable plus each bedroom had an on-suite… More

Lovely ! Glad you all enjoyed it. We do our best to make it memorable for our visitors. The "countryside smell" that was mentioned was only a neighbouring farmer spreading manure - it only happens once a year ! Usually it is Pleasantly Fragrant around here !!
