8th April, 2017  '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 

18th February, 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 and Kate and Isis Kenny 

9th September 2016  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 (Farnsham) 

15th July 2016  We stayed here for 2 weeks. The weather was really nice most of the time and we could eat outside. The view is great. After 2 weeks we are really relaxed and we can go back to the city.  Christian, Leo and Sibylle – Germany 

11th June 2016  Our third time at Maycoes and we love it more than ever. Great weather and walks, fish from Beer and Sidmouth and vast numbers of crab sandwiches. Such a treat to have 2 lovely pubs to walk to and the Fountains Head still our favourite.  Really grumpy about having to leave today.  Sue, Miranda and Kate.

30th October 2015   The house was really good and the beds were comfortable. We went to Lyme Regis and it was really fun.  Phoebe
