22-29 July 2017 Thank you for a lovely stay in your cottage. You have thought of everything and the welcome pack was a lovely surprise. We're going to miss the stunning views. Kind regards, Racehl, Paul and Tessa Clark

14th June 2017  A beautifully equipped and clean cottage with lovely views over the river Axe. We were really impressed when we walked in. So light and clean. The beds were very comfortable. Every amenity was available. Nearby Beer, Seaton, Lyme Regis and Bridport, not to mention West Bay were nice places to visit and had some good restaurants. The nearby Colyford had a lovely pub called The Wheelwright Inn. Nice food at reasonable prices. Colyton is also a pleasant village with a lovely church. There are plenty of walks, but unfortunately it rained and the wind was gale-force so I'm afraid we missed out on that. 

3-10th JUNE 2017  Despite the inclement weather we have had a lovely break. Nice to have a lovely cottage to return to. Enjoyed watching the wildlife i.e. foxes, rabbits and woodpeckers. Thank you for your welcome package and flowers – a nice touch.  Rob and Bridget Elsworth, Mark and Lucy Stephens Notts

27 May – 3rd June 2017  A week in a fantastic cottage, what a view and Holly Cottage really is a home from home.  Thank you for the welcome treats. Excellent location- close to so many lovely places. Would like to come back.  Perkins family – Portsmouth

24-27 May 2017  We have had a lovely time. A shame it was over so quickly. The cottage offered everything we needed and we were able to explore this lovely area.  Peter and Lesley Marriott, Cheltenham.

24th May 2017  In every respect a superb place to spend a week.  We come from Denmark and were looking for a nice location with easy access to the house, a good and safe parking place for the car and also a place that does not allow pets, (we have a cat at home, so we do like pets but not in a holiday residents).  All this and much more this house offers a spacious, clean and comfortable house with a beautiful view.  And nice owners next door.  We really enjoyed our stay with our English friends, that stayed with us.  Steffen R.

10th April 2017 “Stunning cottage, 5 stars Gold Award, parking. Two bathrooms. Spectacular views". Just the ticket. Arranged this stay at short notice for an unusual amount of days (ten) and was no problem. The stay was for work in the Devon area and was nice to come back and relax, walk in the woods or just admire the lovely views. The place was clean and nicely decorated. Will stay again if working in the same area again.' J Babb
