Mrs Kabala June 2019
An amazing house, brilliantly equipped in a wonderful spot. A great area to explore (if persuaded to leave all that is on offer at the house!)
Mrs Brown June 2019
An excellent property for multi-generational celebratory events. There is something for everyone at this spacious and airy property.
Mrs Harding May 2019
Love this house, it’s huge! It has everything you need. The views are amazing!
Mr Anthony May 2019
A wonderful location with stupendous views. House had everything you would want.
Mrs Fisher May 2019
This house exceeded our expectations. It is set in an idyllic position overlooking the river. There are numerous terraces and seating areas to enjoy the views and boats to use on the river. The house was ideal for a large family group, plenty of space inside so we never felt cramped! We enjoyed the games room and the numerous games and puzzles. The kitchen was very well appointed, plenty of pots, crockery etc and all cleaning goods were available. It was lovely to have fresh flowers in all rooms. Plenty of towels, dressing gowns and slippers provided. The house is on a narrow country lane so getting in and out of the driveway was tricky at times and walking from the property was not ideal, unless you wait for low tide and walk along the river! Plenty of wonderful places to explore close by if you can drag yourself away from the stunning views! We did have a problem with the hot tub, the owners were easily contacted and responded quickly. Fantastic property which I would strongly recommend and happily return to.

Thanks for reviewing Redcliffe - it sounds like you had an amazing family holiday overall and enjoyed the huge amount of space on offer at this very special waterfront property. We're really sorry you had an issue with the hot-tub but very pleased that the owners were able to get this sorted for you quickly. Redcliffe like many of our hidden gems, is set down a quiet country lane which can take a little getting used to when manoeuvring your car though hopefully the large driveway made this a little easier. We do hope to welcome you again in the future to continue your local explorations! Bryony, Customer Support
Mrs Welch April 2019
Just back from a totally relaxing week at Redcliffe. We were a party of 10 of which 4 were teenagers. Our week was fantastic. Our holiday started by being greeted by the owner who gave us information on the house and how to use the hot tub heating etc
The house exceeded our expectations it was even better than in the pictures.
The attention to detail was faultless fresh flowers in the lounge and bedrooms. Milk in the fridge and a welcome pack with tea coffee and luxury biscuits.
We made good use of the hot tub and sauna.
It’s not often I say I would love to return to a holiday home but this house I most definitely would love and really hope to go back too.
Mrs Duncan March 2019
We had the most amazing short break in this incredible house. The owners have been attentive to detail and comfort and were incredibly responsive to all our questions and queries. It will be hard to find a house as good as this one. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Mrs Blackmore February 2019

Mrs Bailey February 2019
This property was perfect for our family. I was very impressed with the amount of equipment in the kitchen and the supply of milk, toilet rolls, kitchen roll, tea towels etc. The property was spotless when we arrived. There were plenty of towels and the towelling robes and slippers were very much appreciated and well used by us all. We were greeted on arrival and shown around the property by the owner who explained how everything worked. Everything was first class.

Mrs Perring February 2019
This is our second time at Redcliffe. We are a family of six brothers and sisters ranging in age from 60 to 80. Each February we meet up from around the country to celebrate our mother's birthday, mum passed away 30 years ago. On our first visit we fell in love with it but decided to try somewhere different last year, unfortunately it didn't come anywhere near the quality of Redcliffe so I have already reserved our family gathering for 2020, same time, same place!
Miss Thomas February 2019
Absolutely beautiful house. Everybody said wow when walking in and seeing the most amazing views Couldn’t fault it at all and want to return there soon There were fresh red flowers all over the house. This house definitely has the wow factor
Mr Trethewey January 2019
this is an amazing house in a fantastic location and the whole process from booking to arriving and staying was smooth and well organised
Miss Meese-Kennedy January 2019
Redcliffe is a beautiful, comfortable and well equipped house in a lovely location. After a lovely walk and a lunch at Coomb Cellars it was bliss to come back to the house and enjoy the sauna and hot tub.
Mrs Moss December 2018
I have written in the book. Please tell the owners that the gales were so dreadful kept us awake all night first night so we moved the rattan furniture as it was being swept over the balcony forgot to mention it when we left.
Reply from Classic Cottages
Thanks so much for letting us know about the furniture - we'll certainly pass this on to the owners and we're sorry that you had a sleepless first night. We've certainly had our fair share of winter storms this year but we have everything crossed for some calmer weather to come! Bryony, Customer Support
Ms Eadson October 2018
We had a fabulous family holiday, Redcliffe has lots to offer both within the cottage and in the local area. It exceeded our expectations, the owners had thought of everything to make our stay special, fun and relaxing.
Mrs Inglis September 2018
Very good for family with children ( although we didn't have any with us ! ) Plenty to do at the house but be aware that the garden is sloping so lots of steps , so limited use for elderly or less mobile. Lovely changing view with river tide. Very good kitchen facilities , which was good as we cooked there a lot. There is a good bbq as well.
Reply from Classic Cottages
Thanks so much for your review of Redcliffe, we're delighted that you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed the fabulous views. The garden is on a slope and there are steps to some areas as shown within the photographs - the lovely main deck, seating area and hot tub are all on one level, accessed from the kitchen and living area. Kari, Customer Support
Mrs Elvidge June 2018
Great house amazing views very comfortable. Narrow country lane to reach it.
Mrs Lee June 2018
From the booking to being welcomed by the owners was five stars. A wonderful place for everyone, brilliantly equipped the hot tub was a definite winner, we cannot recommend Redcliffe highly enough
Mr Rendell April 2018
We have stayed in many rental properties both at home and abroad, Redcliffe is one of the best. It is extremely well equipped, we hosted 12 easily. It is in a lovely location with ever changing views. It was perfect for our family reunion.
Mr Hood March 2018
It's doubtful if you would want to leave Redcliffe. Loads of Room. Superb views. Hot tub (even in the Rain ) Sauna, Steam shower,Gym,Games Room,Gym.Use of Boats.Owned by lovely,caring, helpful people. We will be back.
Mr Findlay February 2018
A much anticipated and needed family holiday. Redcliffe was everything and more, the owner Mrs Bufton was there to meet us and show us around. It was pretty overwhelming...the photos do not do this beautiful cottage justice, it is so much bigger in person. All the bedrooms were wonderful and beds so comfy with lovely touches such as flowers and tea/coffee. Plenty of fluffy warm towels to go around. The games room was such a huge hit with the kids (and adults) Sauna was fab and the steam shower was such an added luxury. The hut tub was simply amazing, gazing at the stars with a glass of bubbly was just heaven. (bonus for the kids seeing the trains on the other side of the water) with gorgeous lighting all around. Everything you could possibly need in the well equipped kitchen...the ice maker was a huge hit. The views are just stunning...from every room it is utter bliss to wake up to. We stayed for a week and it just didnt seem enough time. We visited Ness beach which was such a lovely walk collecting shells and the dog very much enjoyed his long walks. To be honest the cottage is so wonderful i was happy to just stay in and enjoy. I would never normally go back to the same place twice but this is an exception without a doubt. Hope to go back next year.
Mr Lockton January 2018
This is a truly superb cottage. The location is beautiful whatever the weather. The cottage has amazing amenities and is beautifully furnished.
Mr Probert December 2017
From the first minute we felt at home. The house was spacious and warm. With 8 of us on holiday it never felt like you were on top of each other. The beds were comfortable and all the bedrooms cosy. This property has everything you needed for a great stay..
Mrs Wells October 2017
Wonderful location and views across the estuary. Every thought gone into comfort in the garden and the house. So much to keep family happy on wet or dull days. Loved it - a great half term success.
Mrs Milverton September 2017
Fabulous place to stay. What you see is what you get and it totally exceeds expectations. A very homely place with lots of additional items (hot tub, fridge with an ice making machine! lovely and clean throughout, everything and more that you could wish for in a holiday home). The views are fantastic. The lane is quite busy but you can easily walk to the local pubs. Easy travelling distance to other local attractions.
Mrs Gillon September 2017
The house is in fabulous location and is very well equipped with lots of extras. The hot tub was enjoyed by all as was the games room. A great place to rent for a friends and family get-together. Thoroughly recommended.
Mr Miles September 2017
More facilities and space than we had expected inside and outside. Worked really well for our three-generational family week together.
Mrs Hastings August 2017
Redcliffe is a beautiful property, with lovely views, the kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It can't fail to please.
Mr Seek August 2017
A beautiful house in the most idyllic situation. Our grown up children loved the games room and table tennis and snooker tournaments went on all week. We had great fun fishing and putting out crab lines and generally messing about on the river. A most enjoyable holiday and we have all fallen in love with Shaldon and the surrounding area.
Mr St John-Roberts August 2017
This luxurious property is ideal for entertaining or peaceful relaxation. Every comfort of home plus stunning views of the river. Whatever the weather, this home will guarantee your holiday to be a success.
Mr Hallam July 2017
Sensational location, excellent facilities
Mrs Jarvis July 2017
A great house for larger families who want to do their own thing or do activities together. Plenty of space inside and out. We counted 52 seats outside alone! Boats were fun as was the hot tub, sauna and steam shower. Fishing was frustrating, they were jumping out of the water but not biting. Fish and chip shop in Shaldon is excellent.
Mr Hampshire April 2017
The pictures show a true reflection of what will be waiting for you when you book this Cottage (Fantastic)
Mrs Perring February 2017
It far and above exceeded our expectations and everyone said that they would like to return to this or a similar cottage next year.
Mrs Croker February 2017
Excellent holiday property with wonderful views. House so well equipped the weather doesn't matter. Games room and hot tub amazing. Thank you.
Mr Berridge January 2017
All the other reviews say it all - Redcliffe is a fantastic "cottage" although "cottage" doesn't really describe it. Better than the photos, better than the description, the best place we've stayed at and all our family members heartily agree. All the facilities were well used including the rowing boat and sit on canoes - albeit by the twenty-somethings in our group, even if it was January.
Miss Wilmot December 2016
Once again redcliffe didn't dissapoint! We stayed over new year and sitting in the hot tub seeing in the new year was brilliant! 2nd time staying here and I still love it as much as the first time. Can't recommend this house enough it's perfect looking forward to staying again one day!!
Mrs Knight September 2016
First impressions on arrival WOW!! Fantastic views. Really enjoyed our stay. Couple of minor points regarding storage and things not working properly but far outweighed by all the positives the property had to offer. We would certainly recommend to anyone looking to stay here.

Beautifully appointed house with lovely views.
Mrs Harding May 2016
This place is luxury and amazing
Ms Payton May 2016
Can't recommend this house enough and the photos do not do it justice. The owner left fresh flowers in every room which was a lovely touch and he met us there to go through how everything worked which was helpful. The views from the double terraces are amazing and it felt like being on board a luxury liner, the hot tub was a great hit with everyone. We didn't want to leave and very much hope to go back again. Thanks for a lovely relaxing holiday in a great location
Miss Mould May 2016
Wonderful holiday, great property, super facilities and the most wonderful view.
Mrs Field April 2016
Perfect in every way
Mrs Sanders April 2016
The owner of Redcliffe Cottage was there to greet us and show us round and tell us how to use the hot tub and other facilities plus other information we needed to know.
Mrs Ward April 2016
Stunning location and views. Enjoyed use of table tennis table, boats, hot tub. Beautiful daffodils and flowers, both inside and outside. Plenty of crockery, glasses, outside tables and seating. Great idea to provide plenty of blankets for use on cooler days outside which meant we could still enjoy the ambience.
Mrs Sharp April 2016
Everything 1st class with all the equipment our mixed family could require (ages 16 -80) Beautiful position with views across the river to the hillside (mostly sunny) Lovely round table for dining and lovely comfortable beds.
Mrs Evans March 2016
This was our 2nd visit to this amazing cottage .. And was even better than I remembered .. The whole house is just amazing .. Amazing views .. Very comfy.. Everything you could possibly need .. And many many extras .. Loved the fresh flowers left around for us ..and love the luxury Easter egg (Easter week) that was left for us .. There's nothing better than sitting in the hottub at night time and taking in the nighttime view and all the beautiful blue lights all around make it extra special .. Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful house with us .. We never want to leave and cannot wait to come back .
Miss Birkett March 2016
Redcliffe is the ideal location for us as a group of friends who find the space, location and atmospheresublime. I would come back again in an instant.
Mrs Crisp March 2016
Redcliffe more than exceeded our expectations, the attention to detail was amazing, it was as though someone had just lent us their home for the week and didn't feel like a rented property at all. All the furnishings and fittings had been carefully selected and bedrooms and en suites colour coordinated. We had boozy nights and loads of laughs in the hot tub, I could go on forever, just an amazing place, thank you.
Mrs Lawrence January 2016
Wonderful location and fantastic accommodation :)
Mr Harper December 2015
Thank you for an excellent week at the stunning Redcliffe Cottage over Christmas 2015. The property was immaculate with great facilities and equipment. The attention to detail was impressive with fresh flowers in the bedrooms and even a Christmas tree; there was a real sense of luxury throughout and both the house and location exceeded all expectations. A great place to spend the holidays with family, we all thoroughly enjoyed it!
Ms Stinchcombe November 2015
Everything was lovely, the beds were extremely comfortable, lots of towels, the views outstanding, even in the wind and rain. The kitchen was well equipped and the large round dining table was a really nice social dining experience. We had a truly relaxing stay and will certainly return to Redcliffe.
Mrs Harmston October 2015
Fantastic cottage didn't want to leave
Miss Wilmot October 2015
House was perfect so clean and comfortable. Sitting in the hot tub was perfect. Already planning our next trip!

Mrs North September 2015
The best property that I have ever stayed in and just superb for a family Celebration. Perfect situation. So much to do we never left the house. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back.
Mr Laws August 2015
Redcliffe is an excellent property in a stunning location. We would highly recommend it. Our party of 8 all had a great time and Classic Cottages were great to deal with. Thanks to all concerned.
Dr Pace July 2015
We had only been there about half an hour before we started discussing when to come again
Mr Irvin July 2015
The Owner was really friendly and showed us around the house and how to work everything. The house is truly exceptional, with a superb hot tub, sauna and the boating from the jetty was the icing on the cake. Easily one of the best houses we have stayed at, already our friends and family are looking at booking and we are too....nothing short of the perfect holiday home!
Mrs Sparks June 2015
Fantastic views with every luxury provided. Owners very helpful and left contact details but not intrusive.
I would thoroughly recommend this cottage for a large group of people.
Plenty of things to do or you can do nothing and just relax and soak up the views.
Mr Atkinson May 2015
Redcliffe exceeded our expectations in every way.
Mrs Elvidge May 2015
Our second time in this beautiful house, made to feel very welcome by the owner. Wonderful location along the river. The view is amazing, especially while relaxing in the hot tub!

Mrs Blackborough April 2015
We had a fantastic stay at Redcliffe, it was peaceful and relaxing. The owner gave us a lovely welcome and we will definitely be booking again!
Mrs Hesslegrave April 2015
Fantastic cottage. Did not want to go home. We spent hours on the sheltered decking taking in the river views. Best holiday cottage yet!
Mr Lynch March 2015
The owners were very helpful and added the personal touch by meeting us on arrival which was very nice. Everything was as expected and more. The games room, gym, hot tub, sauna and boating equipment was very good and definitely added to the property "value", especially on the inclement weather days.
Mrs Ryland February 2015
Fantastic house with everything and everyone catered for. We loved it and cannot recommend it highly enough.
Mrs Bloomer January 2015
Beautiful property in a fabulous location. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly want to make your stay special. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.
Mrs Edwards November 2014
Redcliffe is a stunning house which is very well equipped and cared for. The views of the estuary with its birds and boats change constantly with the tide. The hot tub, jetty and use of the boat were a real bonus – the owners have obviously put a lot of thought and effort into making this a very special holiday home.
Mrs Parker October 2014
You can't of asked for anything more. The fresh flowers in every room was a lovely touch.. It was perfect...
Mrs Jones September 2014
Fabulous hot tub. All the facilities, games room etc. fresh flowers in every room was a lovely touch. The owner very kindly put all our shopping away !, as we were delayed arriving The balconys and terraces were beautiful and very well furnished. Stunning views.
Mrs Barter September 2014
Excellent property,pictures don't do this lovely house justice.My greatest moments were having wine with family in the jacuzzi and watching brother in-law out on the rowing board.
Mr Holden August 2014
A wonderful cottage that has everything you would want and in a superb location, a real gem.

Mr Harding May 2014
This it amazing and great for a big family
Ms Bartlett May 2014
If you're impressed by the pictures of redcliffe look no further, its totally all it appears to be & materialises surreal, its jaw dropping, on arrival my party was just wow ! I never ventured out for two days so much in the cottage & grounds to explore & to walk down to the rivers edge is amazing, set in a ideallic location walking distance to the shore & fishing village in shaldon, the glorious sandy beach in teignmouth is within view & so many day trips to squeeze in to beautiful places & experiences there really just isn't enough time in a week to get to see them all, my second holiday with classic cottages both were pretty awesome & fond memories made, I wonder if we may make it again next year & can we possibly top redcliffe ?
Mr Rye May 2014
Office administration was excellent, as usual. on arrival, 'Redcliffe' was like walking into a 4 star hotel, with superb views from every room. We hope to go back soon.
Mrs Sparks April 2014
A well equipped cottage in a fantastic location. Lots of space and plenty of different seating areas in the garden to enjoy the views and find your own little quiet corner if you want to.
Mrs Buckley March 2014
This is not a cottage this is a house in fab location with wow factor!.we love it and look forward to returning year after year.
Mr Morley February 2014

Mr Walsh December 2013
House was amazing and the owners so helpful. We absolutely loved it.
Mrs Momber December 2013
Fantastic property good for all age groups.
Mr Nichols November 2013
This was a very complete package, Quality! Nothing negative to report. wall to wall comfort.
Miss Gilchrist October 2013
This is a spectacular property. I organised the holiday on behalf of five couples, and all were similarly awestruck by the size and luxury of the house. An enormous, split-level riverside mansion, with bedrooms up to 5* hotel specifications, the most stunning, unobstructed views, and all the very best equipment installed to make the stay as comfortable and luxurious as possible.
The owners have thought of everything with this place, with a detailed guide on arrival, and a very useful book left on the table giving all sorts of hints, advice and instructions. Every bed had a lovely fluffy robe, fresh slippers and four huge, thick towels. The beds are comfortable, with high-quality linen and good pillows. Most of the rooms had a tea/coffee service, kettle, and ensuite bathroom, all done up to the best standards. Fresh single roses at each bedside finished the effect spectacularly.
The kitchen has a large American style fridge, family-sized dishwasher, tumble dryer and washing machine (complete lifesavers in a group of our size). The cupboards come stocked with a bazillion mugs, plenty of glasses of every type, and lots of cutlery/crockery, as well as some specialist items such as condiment bowls, salad bowls, quiche plates etc. The oven is simply gigantic, with a normal grill/oven set, and then a 4-shelf roasting oven beside it. Very useful for large groups!
The decking is massive, on three levels, with lots and lots of seating. A big plus was the outdoor glass-topped dining table that seated 10, and the gas BBQ is something to behold, easily accomodatiing our 10-person grilling feast! Downstairs there is a secluded picnic table, a private garden area, and then a large space around the hot tub with recliners, sun loungers, and patio seating.
The 'bonus extras' here are the hot tub and the sauna, both of which we used during our stay. Although the sauna was excellent, the hot tub was definitely the winner, just lovely at night watching the river, bright stars above you. The house is so secluded, it was wonderfully peaceful at any time of the day or night.
I've only been back less than 24 hours, and I've already recommended this property to a friend! Our stay was just wonderful, and all thanks to this fantastic house, and its lovely owners.
Mrs Saunders September 2013
Visited last year and loved it so much decided to rebook straight away. May not return next year but will definitely visit again in the future. Would recommend to anyone wishing to visit that area of Devon.
Mr Banner August 2013
Excellent property in every way. Views of river from almost every room. Very nice to have use of kayaks and other boats. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Mr Hallam August 2013
Fabulous accommodation, fabulous location. Did not need to leave the house!. My whole family loved it.
Mr Beard June 2013
This is a fantastic property. From the moment you enter it is hard to take your eyes off the view. Lots of seating areas, great even for a small group, especially enjoyed the two terraces which included a hot tub. There are boats for you to use and a path from the garden leads you down to the shore, with a deck and more seating. Great for fishing, infact one of our party spent most of his stay just sitting with his rod!! Great holiday, we will be back.
Mr Harding May 2013
The house is total luxury. Lovely having gowns and slippers in the rooms and fresh flowers. Very impressed with the house. It was such a large house my extended family all had their own space. The views are amazing.
Mrs Fountain May 2013
We couldn't have wished for anything more the house & location, everything was perfect will definitely go back. Wonderful holiday was had by all.
