The Cottage was ideal for our family and the dogs. Great cottage, perfect garden and an excellent location. We had a lovely holiday and would definitely come back. Thank you. 2018
Lovely place, Colyton has so much to offer. The cottage is ideal with plenty of room, garden and well-fitted out kitchen. We would love to come back. 2018
We all had a wonderful holiday, the cottage is a delightful place to be. We all look forward to our next holiday in The Malt House. 2018
We had such a marvellous time here. The Malt House was a good and comfortable home with everything one could need. It was great to have breakfast outside in the garden, in the evening we enjoyed some fo the movies on dvd. We had very nice day trips to Dartmoor, Beer, a country fair and we enjoyed a perfect sunny day at Sidmouth at Jacobs Ladder Beach, a great place to go. Thanks a lot for a wonderful holiday hopefully we'll come back one day. 2018
