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

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.

“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
