“Great cottage in a lovely setting”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2015

We all had a lovely time at Boswell Farm, it was perfect to be greeted with a cream tea and selection of goodies on arrival. Our cottage was really well equipped, and just how the pictures show it, with a lovely private garden. Boswell Farm is in a quiet country lane, within an easy and enjoyable walk of Sidmouth which has loads to offer, and also the local pub did lovely food. Would definitely recommend a stay.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to review our cottage. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated all that Boswell has to offer! We very much hope to welcome you again!
