“The perfect cottage for our family of four generations.”
Pear Tree Cottage exceeded our expectations, being superbly equipped, decorated and furnished. We felt relaxed and comfortable from the moment we arrived and had a very happy week there.. The large kitchen/diner, (with sofa and small table making an ideal play area for our toddler grandson), was where we got together for family meals. The large windows opened onto the pretty, walled garden. There was every kind of pot, pan and utensil you could possibly need for putting together large suppers. The great grandparents stayed at a guest house in Shaldon, so could escape the family noise, but spent evenings with us on the very comfortable, squashy sofas. Being centrally situated, shops, cafes, restaurants and the beach are only a couple of minutes walk away. This is a perfect holiday cottage for an extended family. The ONLY downside, is that beds are not made up for arrival. We opted not to pay extra for bed linen and towels, so took our own. Our washing machine has been working very hard since our arrival back home. But I would not hesitate to recommend Pear Tree Cottage for a superb holiday.
“Home away from home”
This cottage was very well furnished and equipped (only thing we couldn't find was a hair dryer), with enough space for 4 adults and 2 children to spread out. 4 bedrooms meant the kids could each have their own room too, and three bathrooms meant no queuing for the shower or toilet. The location was great, walking distance to everything we needed - bakery, small supermarket, restaurants, pubs, the beach, post office and chemist. Lovely to have live music one evening at the pub next to the green. We made an easy trip across to Teignmouth on the wee passenger boat and had a lovely time over there spending money at the arcade on the pier, fish and chips for lunch, superb ice creams, and a wander round the town. Information given by the owners was thorough and useful, with plenty of additional info at the house on things to do and see locally. The walled garden provided the perfect place for the kids to kick the football round, and to enjoy the sunshine we were lucky enough to have during our stay. The only thing that was slightly annoying was having to walk daily (10 minutes, so not even really far at all!) to the public car park to renew the parking payment for the second car, as there is only space for one car at the house. But all in all this was a pretty tiny inconvenience.
“The perfect place to relax in comfort no matter what the weather”
I went with my husband and our teenage son to this attractive, unusually well appointed and comfortable cottage for a few days relaxation. Everything worked, and the useful guides meant we were quickly oriented round the village. A day of pelting rain proved the cottage warm and cosy, with good places to eat very close by - great since I had no intention of cooking. A wet Monday night saw us in a crowded pub having good food while listening to jazz, 5 minutes' walk away. We will definitely return!
“Could not have been any better”
We enjoyed the perfect end of summer getaway at Pear Tree Cottage. The property has been expertly and sympathetically modernised, and proved to be a very comfortable place from which to explore the area. The village itself is delightful with some excellent small shops and really good cafes and places to eat. You could enjoy a lovely holiday at this property without ever getting in your car, but simply by spending your time in the garden, exploring the village, or by taking the ferry over to Teignmouth. The surrounding areas however are also very picturesque making for some enjoyable walks either along the coast, further inland or up on the moors. Torquay and Exeter are also within striking distance, ensuring that there is always plenty to do and something for everyone. The good rail connections from Exeter meant that our older children were able to join us for part of the week we were there and could get back to different parts of the country easily. So a great place to meet up , catch up and chill. We really had a great holiday.
“Beautiful cottage but parking is difficult!”
This is a beautiful cottage with lots of living space including a large kitchen/ diner. Its obvious that the owners use the cottage as the furnishings are all very nice and well thought out. There is parking for one car - which is 'reserved' by a series of posts and chain - and we managed to get our Renault Grand Scenic on the space with two side wheels in the road - but be warned, all of the village roads are very narrow so getting down to the space past other parked vehicles and then trying to turn the car round is not for the faint hearted. Most of the roads have double yellow lines so parking a second car was a challenge - there are bays close by to park for an hour and the nearest car park is 4 hours max. The nearest long stay car park is up at the ness (10 - 15 min walk away) and the tourist information centre advised moving the car every day so it did not become a target for break-ins. We eventually managed to get a second space by the cottage, but it was a bit of a nightmare until then. Parking is obviously an issue in the village and we overheard lots of snipes from the locals about 'tourists' in relation to parking. We travelled with a 2 year old and here are a few extra facts that other young families may find helpful: 1) The single bedroom has a light beige shade and the hallway outside was very bright until past 9pm due to the large skylight in the hallway, so it was difficult to convince our daughter that it was night time. 2) There are lots of blinds all over the cottage and they don't have cleats to secure the chords - so be vigilant. 3) The garden is secure, and our daughter enjoyed playing in it. 4) The DVD player took a long time to register discs and often stuck during a film. Location-wise, the cottage is in a great location - less than a minute's walk to the local butcher (great cumberland sausages) and baker (bread is lovely). There are at least 3 pubs close by and the Ferry Boat Inn pub food was amazing. The Clipper Cafe was very friendly and had a great outdoor area (can't comment on the food as we didn't eat there). The beaches were ok, but not really the type of places you would want to sunbathe on as red sand, lots of stones and the nearest beach seemed to be used mainly for storing boats. It rained every day we were there, but I obviously need to do a bit more research the next time I try to book a 'beach' holiday.
“Beautiful, very well appointed cottage, spacious and comfortable.”
The cottage and village had everything we needed for our stay. It was cosy and comfortable on the wet days, and well placed for exploring the surrounding areas on sunny days. We have rented many self catering properties over the years and this one is certainly up there with the best. The cottage had been thoughtfully and sympathetically refurbished. Thank you.
“Pear Tree Cottage is a welcoming home to come on vacation”
We come here regularly for a family holiday. Such an idealic place. Close to the beach. Just a step away from the town or a small drive to the other seaside resorts.
“Excellent 5 star cottage”
Just recently back from a 4 day stay at Pear Tree cottage The cottage is ideal for family's and groups with everything on your doorstep. Great base for exploring the rest of Devon
