We really enjoyed our stay at Popplestone. Cottage is lovely, views are wonderful, hosts are lovely, dog friendly, family friendly. One of, if not The best U.K family holiday we've had. Even the weather couldn't spoil it.


August 2017

Lovely friendly owners who make you feel welcome, but are not intrusive. Everything you could need is here. Furnishings to a high and comfortable standard. The little extra things left for guests and their dogs show the owners have really thought about making your stay the best it can be.


July 2017

The cottage is in an ideal location, and contains everything needed for a relaxing holiday.


June 2017

We had a wonderful week at Popplestone. The welcome of scones was a lovely start. There were many extras and nice touches we weren't expecting. The views were superb. The enclosed garden meant our dog could come and go safely via the kitchen door. The birds at the feeders and in the garden were entertaining. Mr and Mrs Simmonds were very welcoming and helpful. We plan to visit again.


May 2017

Beautiful holiday cottage in a stunning location Wonderful views Lots of nice walks to take with the dogs Dog friendly enclosed garden Excellent location ideal for exploring the coast Clean, comfortable and well equipped Friendly welcoming owners, their family and the gorgeous dogs

One of the best holiday cottages we've booked and all of us loved it so much we didn't really want to come home! Wonderful. Melanie, Malcolm and Teddie the Labrador


March 2017

The extra effort by the owners to make people welcome was appreciated. As well as the usual cream tea it was nice to have bread; milk; butter and eggs left for us and, unusually, liquid soap and shower gel in the bathrooms.


March 2017

Beautifully presented and felt really welcome with the extra touches, for example, bread, milk, butter etc and a beautiful cream tea on arrival. Even bones and towels for the dogs.


February 2017

The property is in a beautiful location and is very comfortable with everything you could possibly need for a stay away from home. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and they provided little extra touches over and above expectation which made our stay overall feel more special. We would definitely return if we are ever down in Devon.


December 2016

Lovely homely cottage with the owners near by, but not too close. All the home comforts with wonderful views and location. Peaceful yet not too far away from the essentials. Safe garden for the dogs with wildlife surrounding you.


August 2016

A beautiful cottage surrounded by stunning countryside and sweeping landscape. The Owners were friendly and attentive (even baking us a fresh scone for our arrival!) Definitely a cottage to return to next year.


July 2016

We absolutely loved this cottage, highly recommended, what you see on the photographs is what you get, we would definitely go back for another holiday.

Exceptional quality cottage on the Devon/Dorset border. Exceptional welcome and would highly recommend to anyone wanting an excellent base to explore either the coast or inland


April 2016

Best equipped cottage we have ever rented. Wonderful attention to detail.


December 2015

Very clean and comfortable.


October 2015

Popplestone is idyllic - beautiful cottage, stunning views, wonderful and welcoming farm dogs and cats, lovely owners - basically one of the best, most relaxing holidays we've ever had.The cottage is full of little extras - definitely one of the best equipped I've ever been to, which added to the comfort and homeliness. Plus the weather - for mid-October - was glorious.

The highlight for me was the daily visit by Angus and Dexter, the owner's dogs, who popped in every morning for some fuss and attention, followed by Bumble and Buzz, two beautiful ginger tomcat brothers who loved to play!

The location of the cottage was in a part of the country I'd not visited before, and was amazed by the landscape - absolutely stunning. We didn't visit anything like the number of places we meant to, so I think a second visit will have to happen!


September 2015

The Stay at Popplestone lived up to all our expectation, Very comfortable with every little detail catered for. A big Thankyou to the Family Simmonds for allowing us to bring our dogs and making everything so comfortable and of course classic cottages


June 2015

A real retreat from a busy life.Wonderful views lots of wild birds plus resident chickens guinee fowl and horses.


May 2015

I would say that the property and its location went beyond our expectations. One of the nicest cottages that we have stayed in and there have been many. There was plenty of everything that we needed and not just the bare essentials and it felt like a home with excellent furnishing. The extra touches such as a cream tea on arrival, fresh flowers and all the additional things that are not always there such as soap, shower cream, toilet rolls and dishwasher tablets etc were very much appreciated. The owners were there if we needed anything but they left us to ourselves.


March 2015

This is the best place ever, a hidden Gem in Devon, and our 9th stay. And not our last, just so relaxing and tranquil


March 2015

Beautiful cottage in a wonderful location for peace & quite. Barbara & son in law were lovely & we were met with baked scones & freshly laid eggs! wonderful!


March 2015

Received a very warm welcome from owners and their dogs Angus and Dexter! Cream tea. eggs and bread plus treats for our dog were a lovely surprise. Property is in an amazing location with views not done justice to in the picture. will be lovely to sit out on the veranda in the summer to watch the sunset. Cannot fault Popplestone, lovely furnishings, comfortable and with everything you could need provided. Hope to return soon.


March 2015

Everything as per description - clean, welcoming, comfortable and excellent location.


March 2015

Popplestone was even better than expected, Barry and Barbara had thought of everything for the cottage Their hospitality was second to none, they provided us with beautifully home cooked scones strawberry jam and clotted cream also home cooked bread and even butter, we did not want to come away! our dog Freddie loved their friendly dogs Dexter and Angus, we look forward to another visit .


February 2015

A beautiful cottage which contained everything we needed for self catering in a peaceful location with lovely views. We were not far from the south coast where we found some great walks for our two dogs


November 2014

What an absolutely delightful cottage. We were greeted with a lovely warm welcome by Barry, and seen off with a lovely goodbye by Barbara - a really lovely touch (and Barbara's home made scones, bread and the farm eggs, clotted cream and jam too...marvellous). Throughout we knew they were there if we needed them, but not once did they intrude..... just as it should be. The cottage itself is EXACTLY what you see in the brochure and on the website - really, if you like the look of it, you'll love it in real life! Beautiful views (and chickens laying eggs by the parking space!) and a really cosy, tidy, clean and well equipped cottage (which has been finished to a really high standard). If you have dogs, you can't fault it.....there is a glorious hour-or-so walk around the farm right on your doorstep..... and the farm dogs (Angus & Dexter) are really lovely...our toy poodle (Sidney) loved their company........... You're within half an hour of Axminster, Beer, Branscombe, Sidmouth, Budleigh Salterton, Exeter, Dawlish, Teignmouth and Shaldon too. We will heartily recommend Popplestones to friends and family and we do exactly the same to you - book it, you will not be disappointed.


October 2014

10/10 Have hired many cottages over the years but this was excellant. Everything about the cottage was great but also the owners, couldn't be more friendly & helpful..watchin their horses having shoes fitted & being able to feed them was a real treat for my little girl who loves horses.Also meeting their two dogs who were friendly & so sweet. We hope to return


July 2014

If you want a peaceful holiday with a scenic view and friendly hosts, then come to Popplestone.


May 2014

Popplestone is a beautifully kept and very comfortable cottage with stunning views. It's a great place for a peaceful and relaxing holiday and the many thoughtful touches provided by the owners have tempted us back to Popplestone several times.

Great Cottage, the place to Relax, and unwind, can not fault


October 2013

Fantastic accommodation for your holidays, lovely and clean, good quality furnishings and everything is home from home you would not need to take anything" just in case" as everything has been provided.
