Lovely house, lovely area – enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you. August 2018
Good base to visit the local area. Very comfortable beds and plenty of space for us all, Merlin the dog enjoyed chilling out in the garden. We had everything we needed and appreciated the lovely cream tea welcome pack. Thank you. July/August 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pidgeon’s Nest. Delightful house with well-appointed furniture – super comfy beds and loads of wardrobe space. Excellent garden space and great views overlooking the paddock full of cute bunnies! Great Location – walking distance to 2 pubs and within easy reach of seaside towns of both Devon and Dorset. Would definitely recommend to friends and hopefully we’ll be back too! Thank you! July 2018
