Ms Court November 2023
Great property. Spacious, modern and very clean. Perfect layout for a large group. Near the beach and coast path. Amazing sea view.
Mr Pitchford June 2023
Fantastic position overlooking Wembury Beach, spacious accommodation, well appointed. Bathrooms and bedrooms on every level worked really well for the needs of our group, especially the upper ground level which is ideal for older guests because they don't need to go up and down stairs. The deck is a fantastic space really adding to the wow factor. The outside shower on the lower ground level is brilliant for washing down the dogs, wet suits and other beach equipment. Although Wembury beach is not dog friendly in the summer the beaches at Wonwell, South Milton, Bovisand, and Salcombe North Sands are and aren't too far away.
Miss Litherland June 2023
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mewstone View. The house was well equipped with everything that you could need and everywhere was spotlessly clean. The bedrooms were all an excellent size and very comfortable. The view from the decking area was stunning and even better from the top bedroom. Good location for exploring the local area. Only issue was there was no phone signal but there was good WiFi connection so we were still able to contact people when we needed to.
Mrs Goddard November 2022
A really lovely place with great facilities and fantastic views. Highly recommend.
Mr Perkins September 2022
Excellent holiday home. Suitable for all the family. Good for dogs too
mr stott August 2022
Great cottage, very clean, good condition and finish. Amazing sea view from master bed and lounge and outdoor deck. Near a small beach which is walkable and has a national trust car park and small cafe. Near lots of nice areas but traffic in summer can be slow...! Good dog walks. Overall very nice.
Miss Lewis August 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the beach was really close, everything lived up to what was seen on website
Mr Wheelhouse July 2022
Having spent a week at this property , we found that it did not come up to a satisfactory standard. general maintenance was poor. some sinks were partly blocked with drainage smells shower waste was partly blocked causing flooding over the floor shower spray head was broken toaster was not working correctly kitchen extractor was not working correctly The BBQ was not cleaned which caused a serious fat fire and risk to health. Classic cottages were informed of these issues but although sympathetic to my complaints I feel that they were just looking after the property owners interests and not willing to get involved reach a satisfactory response from them. The property owners did not accept that the BBQ fire was caused by a fat fire and lack of maintenance which clearly it was. I will not be using Classic Cottages again, as their holiday client I would have expected to be treated a little more fairly with greater respect which in this instance I was not.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts following your stay at Mewstone View - we're sorry that you were unhappy. We have obviously corresponded quite extensively about your experience of using the barbecue and the fire that you reported to us. We appreciate you also now letting us know about the points of maintenance that you identified and can confirm that these have been addressed. We can appreciate how distressing it was for the barbecue to have caught fire, but as previously discussed we did conduct a full investigation of the circumstances surrounding the incident, as the health and safety of our guests is of the utmost importance to both the owners and Classic Cottages.
We remain very sorry that we were unable to reach a satisfactory conclusion for you, and that you felt unable to accept the owners refund offer. Julie, Customer Support
Mr Arterton June 2022
A lovely house with great facilities.
Mrs Stark May 2022
Everything was high spec we found nothing to detract from what was expected. We had a marvellous time at Mewstone view it was very comfortable and relaxing. It had everything that we needed to make it a perfect holiday.
Mrs Peacock December 2021
We sent a special message onto the owners and housekeeper--that this was a superb house, and special thanks for the Christmas tree, mince pies and flowers. We could not fault it and the location. We managed to cook a full Christmas dinner with puddings for 6 and had all the equipment we needed. We have recommended this property to our family and friends, having been recommended by a family friend who stayed there in 2019.

Mrs Green October 2021
Lovely house for a family holiday with all facilities. Minutes away from an attractive beach where there is surfing and kayaking and a National Trust cafe.
Mrs Collison September 2021
Just to thank the owners for their consideration and equipping the house so throughly.
Mrs Hepworth September 2021
The accommodation on 3 floors worked well for different generations. Useful outdoor shower for those returning from the beach with sand on wetsuits. Kitchen is well equipped. I wished I had thought to take some oven gloves rather than struggling with tea towels. The cutlery drawer is well marked, but it still took me a while to find it secreted in the island! Thoroughly enjoyed the view of the Mewstone with a couple of great sunsets. The furniture is good, but not so precious that you are worried about it. Overall I would recommend this house to those wanting a house half a mile form a great beach. Not too far to walk to a dog friendly beach, just 8 mins to the West along the coastal path.
Mrs Smith August 2021
Beautiful home, a place to instantly relax. We would love to come again.
Mrs Bateman June 2021
We had a perfect week at Mewstone, the house was a perfect fit for all 6 of us and two dogs. We loved being so close to the beach and found the area a great place to explore with the dogs. We highly recommend this holiday home for a fun packed seaside retreat. The only disappointment was not being able to take the dogs on the beach but with the beautiful SW coastal path on the door step we managed some super walks.
Mrs Rates May 2021
Liked the light bright feeling of the house, being able to open a complete wall to the air ( we were lucky with the weather!), the flexibility with the large deck and the grassy areas for a small child to play, the stunning view.
Mr Gothard October 2020
the location is good, the views are to die for, the cottage is beautifully decorated with high quality of finish and is very well-equipped. The upstairs bedroom and bathroom lack head height due to the eves, but the compensation is the stunning view to wake up to.

Thank you so much for your review of Mewstone View. We are delighted that you loved the location and the views were worth sacrificing a little head room! We hope that you arrived home relaxed and rejuvenated. We hope to welcome you to back again in the future. Sarah, Customer Support
mr Winfield September 2020
A lovely place to stay with an interesting combination; local beach (walkable) and relatively quick access to a range of other visitor attractions from Plymouth to small coves and beaches. Lots of walking opportunities.
Mrs Veale September 2020
Beautiful immaculate house with the most amazing views, even better than the photos. Very well equipped. Lovely outdoor areas especially the decking area which had very nice quality outdoor dinning furniture and a good size barbecue , not to mention once again those amazing views Fantastic costal walks pretty much on the door step, can’t wait to return.

We're so pleased to see you enjoyed your time in Devon - and that the wonderful weather meant you could really appreciate the outside space and views! We hope to welcome you back again soon. The Classic Team
Mrs Abbott July 2020
Struggling to recommend this cottage as the upside was definitely spoilt by the downside which disappointed us hugely. We would not return. Recognising we couldn't change a thing we dealt with the lack of hygiene as best we could and then made the most of our stay despite the much anticipated enjoyment being marred.
Reply from Classic Cottages
We're so sorry that you felt there were areas that needed further attention; we do recognise that we are all probably more aware of standards of cleanliness given the current situation. We've worked continuously to share industry guidance on Covid cleaning with our owners and housekeepers, so we were sorry that we weren't aware of your thoughts during your stay when we could have investigated and potentially rectified any issues. Thanks for letting us know retrospectively - we've passed on your feedback to the housekeepers and owner and will continue to check that the required standard is met. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Johnson February 2020
Ideally situated for an extended weekend break. The beach and cliff walks are a 5 minute walk away. We stayed here with our 3 children and their partners, 2 grandchildren and 2 dogs and had plenty of space. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. The bedrooms are clean, comfortable and suitably decorated with access to bright and modern bathrooms. We stayed here in February so didn't make use of the outside areas but the large decked area with barbecue would be a real asset in the Summer. Stunning views from the loft room even when lying in the bed.
Ms Ilbery November 2019
I loved my stay in this beautifully equipped, well designed and comfortable house - parking right at the front door was wonderful ... and the views of the sun setting behind the Mewstone were sublime. Superb walks in the area - and so many places of interest to visit.
I highly recommend Mewstone View as a place to stay and holiday.
Mr Lane September 2019

Mrs Willis May 2019
The whole family, including two dogs and a baby had a great time at Mewstone View. The views and location are excellent. A great base for some fantastic coastal walks. We all enjoyed our family vacation. The house is clean and modern and fully equipped. We highly recommend Mewstone View.
Mrs Link April 2019
Great location!! Everything was great, the house and the views to Mewstone are amazing. We have just one thing to critize, that‘s the widths of the beds. The double bed downstairs was to small for us.
Reply from Classic Cottages
The views certainly are amazing and we're pleased you enjoyed your stay. We're sorry that you found the beds a little small for your comfort. There is a king size bed in the first floor double room and the double bed downstairs is a standard 4'6 size. We appreciate that a larger bed is important for some, especially while on holiday, and we do show all bed sizes in our website description. Alison, Customer Support
Mr Shaw October 2018

Super location and very peaceful home to escape to.
Miss Margey September 2018
Three generations had the most wonderful, comfortable, relaxing week at Mewstone View. Super clean, modern hi spec home. Notes left by the owners and milk and flapjacks etc left for our arrival made us instantly feel welcome. The beach is just a short walk from the house. The view is mesmerising, especially at sunrise and sunset. Thank you.
Mrs Tennant July 2018

A stunning property, excellently equipped and furnished to a very high quality standard, making for a luxurious break. We loved it!
Mrs Smith July 2014
The closest beach was not no nice but we drove to blackpool sands which was amazing although it was an hour drive. The house it's self and the people in wembury are absolutely fabulous the people in the area are very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the no network in and round the area we got to spend more time with each other. There is wifi for uploading photo on Facebook hahaha and if you have viber you could call out and the watsapp works as well Overall fantastic holiday
Miss Hughes June 2014
