“Delightful accommodation in beautiful setting”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2015

Finding the properties is tricky as SatNav doesn't recognise them on the map. Local taxis found them difficult to find. Owner could put out clearer sign-posting leading up to the properties. Kitchen could have more equipment specific for large groups i.e. sieves / bowls.

“Relaxing and spacious with a great host”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2015

Beautiful cottage and great weather meant we could use the pool. Owners very helpful with advice and even accepted wheelchairs etc hired for my mum which were delivered early. Nearly 2 weeks but could have stayed longer. Space meant kids could safely run around and we had good use of tennis courts and badminton too.

“Perfect for a relaxing weekend away”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2014

We rented Greengage Cottage for a joint 25th birthday celebration, and it was exactly what we needed for a relaxing weekend in Devon. Tony was extremely accomodating throughout and was happy to extend the opening of the pool for us - we were brave and swam outdoors in October! The property was exactly what we were looking for as a group of 9 adults. Mulitple ensuites and the (unexpected) bonus of an additional upstairs living room meant that there was plenty of space for our large group. The location was great; the local pub, The Cat and Fiddle, is just a couple of minutes drive away and does really good food, and Sidmouth beach is a 25 minute drive away. We had a lovely weekend at Greengage Cottage and can't fault it. We would definitely consider visting again!

“Generous accommodation, tranquil location, suits all ages”

Reviewed 31 Dec 2013

Our December holiday was very successful we found plenty to do indoors when the weather was against us and had several trips to the beach and places of interest when the weather was better. Exeter and local shops provided all we needed. Minor problems [e.g. bulbs needing replacing] were rapidly sorted by the owner. A great time was had by all.

“Warm, welcoming - heaven in Devon!”

Reviewed 26 Nov 2013

We arrived to a lovely log fire, the hot tub was bubbling, the beds comfy and the cottage large but comfy and cosy. The owners were very fast to reply to all questions prior to arrival. Once we arrived they helped us plan a coastal walk, locate the nearest farm shop and made sure that all our needs were met. They were even kind enough to meet the Sainsbury's delivery man prior to arrival so as to ensure the fridge was full when we got there. The cottage was spotless on arrival, and beautifully decorated.

“Cosy yet spacious accommodation in a beautiful setting”

Reviewed 3 May 2012

We were a group of 6 girls and stayed during the wettest April in 100 years. However the wood burning stove and cosy atmosphere of the cottage meant this wasn't an issue. The owner could not have been more accommodating and informative. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub and watched the sun set over the Exe valley. Tony gave us details of places to see and things to do on the wet days and provided taxi numbers etc. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable, clean and well equipped. It is close to Exeter yet feels like the middle of nowhere. Perfect to get away from it all but not feel isolated. We were all well relaxed, including the dog!

“beautiful cottages in an amazing location”

Reviewed 28 Mar 2012

We hired both cottages for 2 nights in March for a friends Hen Do. We couldn't have wished to stay anywhere nicer! Both cottages are beautifully decorated with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed glorious sunshine and spent our entire weekend at the property making the most of the weather and using the facilities from the tennis court to the hot tub. Tony could not have been more welcoming! We will definitely be back for a second visit!
