Just to say thank you for a fantastic holiday, the cottage and village were just gorgeous. It was a perfect break. Will definitely recommend to others and we will most definitely be back! Thanks again. Gabby, April 2017
Thank you for a lovely stayover our half term holidays. We loved the house and its surroundings. We were a party of 6 with 3 kids and had a brilliant time. We went for lots of walks, Beer and Sidmouth when the weather was good. We even has a few sunny days. We have found fossils in Lyme Regis which was great. Wonderful week. Tamara, Ashley, Flint, Scarlett Revell, Kate and Isis Kenny, February 2017
Came to stay for a week with my 82 year old mother. The house itself is superb, especially the kitchen. Loved the feeling that time had stood still in the 1930’s . Very quiet and tranquil- just what me and my mum needed. Would love to come back. Annie and Sally, September 2016
