I don't usually submit reviews on the properties we stay in but feel that Lime Cottage deserves one. My partner and I stayed there for five days and would have loved to have stayed longer. It is a beautifully appointed cottage in a tranquil and pretty setting - the reality surpassed expectation, which is very rare. We made full use of the tennis court and hot tub and Tony, the owner, even set up a table-tennis table for us to use when we expressed an interest. He also gave us some good advice on where to eat out and visit. The cottage is very private and has its own garden that backs on to surrounding fields - our dogs were in heaven! The property is set in a beautiful part of Devon with some wonderful coastline walks a short car ride away. There was plenty to see and do and at the end of the day a lovely, warm, cosy cottage to return to. We left something behind and Tony very kindly posted it back to us within a few days. Lime Cottage is a little gem and we would love to holiday there again one day.

I stayed here for a long weekend and loved it. Everything is as it says in the description on holiday lettings. The surroundings are very beautiful and the cottage has a really tranquil feel to it. The bed is very comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and it is well worth cooking in with all the great fresh produce available at the local farm shops. The only problem I had was the floor of the wet room is not levelled correctly and the water does not run down the central drain as it should !! And the Jacuzzi / Hot tub is absolutely brilliant with views of nothing but countryside and listening to the birds… wow !! I would highly recommend this cottage.
