22-27 October 2016  Agree with all the previous positive comments- a very comfortable holiday home and so handy for the village.  We’ve enjoyed walks along the coastal paths. Has a super guided tour of the Quarry Caves.  Good walking and nice lunch at Sea Shanty in Branscombe.  A lovely autumn break and will definitely recommend Serendipity.  Caroline, Martin and Joe

10-17 September 2016 Jenny , Bob and Ellie  One of the best “ dog friendly” cottages we have stayed in.  Had a great week and hope to return.

27th August – 2 September 2016  We have had a lovely time . Love your cottage and it had everything we needed and perfect location. We loved Sidmouth and Torquay but visited lots of smaller seaside places such as Babbacombe which had a cable car down to the beach and Branscombe. There’s a Tesco in Seaton which isn’t too far away for shopping but also used the little shops in Beer for bread etc.  Thanks for the lovely stay, love all the pictures and the little sayings.  Peter, Jenny Dean and Bailey (woof)  

20-27 August 2016  Yvonne, Dave and Bliss Ells- Sussex  Thank you for the lovely stay. Beer is one of our favourite places to come. Lovely modern cottage. Yesterday we went to see the red arrows at Sidmouth- a wonderful display. We also visited the Donkey Sanctuary which they are re-developing. It is also so nice to be within walking distance from the sea.

6-20 August 2016  Cindy and Nick  We have had a wonderful time at Serendipity Cottage. It is a real home from home with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Loved the children’s art work in the cottage. The weather has been glorious and we have explored the coast line from Budleigh Salterton, a beautiful town, to West Bay.  We will certainly book this cottage again, it is close enough to walk to Beer Beach and is a great location to explore the coastline. Thank you
