Excellent location for great walks, got the train a couple of times from Teignmouth

September 2020

The cottage was just what we wanted for a short stay. Location and village is excellent. The Castle Inn pub just a stone's throw away was friendly and the food good. I would recommend eating at The Crab Shack in Teignmouth where the food, service and views were great.

This is a fantastic little bolt hole in a wonderful location. The village is a perfect place to explore the area. I am already missing the walk down to Teignmouth with a stop for coffee en route.

August 2020

Would highly recommend the cottage and the owners who are really keen to make the holiday work well for their guests.

July 2020

We had a wonderful week. The cottage is cozy and beautifully restored, with nice touches, great info book, lovely shower, excellent photo art on the walls.

February 2020

A well thought out compact and cosy cottage with just enough space for 4. Easy access to the coast path either to Dawlish or down to the sea wall and along to Teignmouth (or both, with a train ride in between). Kids LOVED the bunk beds and grown ups loved the big shower. Pub right at the end of the road has good solid pub food.

Good spot for a long weekend, but make sure you like each others company!

Thewalk to the beach was further than expected and steps think you should make people aware as this was much of the reason we booked as near to beach

Reply from Classic Cottages

We were sorry to hear that you'd hoped the beach was a little closer - it's about a ten minute walk (around half a mile as the crow flies) but we do appreciate that this will be easier for some guests that others. Take a look at our 'Explore Nearby' tab for a map showing the cottage and surrounding area, or have a chat with our staff when booking for more information. Classic Cottages

The Old Post Office was everything we wanted and more; beautiful location, cosy, welcoming and comfortable. After reading previous reviews about parking we were concerned about finding a space after a day out but we never had a problem. Will definitely be returning!

Lovely small cosy well equipped character cottage in middle of village & easy walking distance of good local pub.

October 2017

We had been on a roadtrip through the South of Enlgand and the Old Post Office was our second station. It is such a lovely place. It had been renovated through the owners with so much love you can feel it in every wooden plank. There is a helpfull book with informations about the house and the place and you can find many tips for trips in it. Parking is a little adventure but the people are really relaxed. We really would recommend this cottage to everyone who loves a quiet and rural atmosphere!

October 2017

Picturesque, peaceful, very pretty location and great to hide away from the hustle and bustle of working life. Dawlish and the surrounding villages were a step back in time for us. A great reminder of old fashioned summer family holidays. And the weather was very good too.

We loved the place. Very clean, everything worked, good bedroom and wardrobe space, very comfortable lounge, dining, kitchen space, superb views from the attached back garden! Set in a quiet, friendly village with no through traffic, and easy journey to all the popular towns and villages of south and east Devon. Has everything really, including a very amusing entry at the end of visitor book 1 continuing in visitor book 2 - well worth a read!
