No 3 was exactly like staying at home, simply everything you could wish for was provided. One of our best Classic cottages, we will certainly return.

October 2019

This holiday home is truly a home! What a stunning property, extremely cosy, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The location is fantastic, especially as dog-owners we liked that we were in the country-side, but had amenities on the doorstep and were close to wonderful villages and tourist hotspots. Would definitely come back and book again!

September 2019

Just an ideal cottage in an ideal location, absolutely loved it and hope to return soon.

August 2019

May 2019

We have stayed in a lot of cottages and houses over the years but i think i can easily say that no. 3 is the best Well situated, very clean and enough room to hold a swinging cat (many in fact). Very well equipped kitchen and enough games, books, dvd's to suit all needs. Great eateries in the area and plenty of beaches to choose from. I would certainly recommend no. 3.

My sister, brother and I were all very impressed by all the aspects of this accommodation - the best cottage/apartment any of us have stayed in.

March 2018

The location suited us as although the house has no "views", the view of the church tower with its cockrell and bells was a hit with the children! It is well located for exploring the area.The space and layout on both floors is a real treat when there are 6 sharing the space. The property is immaculate with lots of welcoming touches.

March 2018

A beautifully presented, immaculately kept holiday home that is very comfortable. A joy to be pet friendly too so our dear Rosie could enjoy a holiday with us. I refuse to stay anywhere worse than my own home which is a challenge. No worries here though! Congratulations to the wonderful housekeeper.

The photos of this cottage does not do it justice it's a real home from home

August 2016

We have had a lovely holiday, our oldest granddaughter (aged 71/2) says it has been " the best holiday ever ". There is so much to do in the area, from an afternoon in the 'Vintage Shed', and tea at Liddons Dairy to a wander around Beer or a trip to Lyme Regis.We took the walking tour of Colyton which was very interesting. The local shops are very convenient , and we enjoyed meals in the Kingfisher and the Wheelwrights Arms ( Colyford). Even the weather was kinder than we anticipated. All in all , a lovely house in a lovely location.

August 2016

Perfect for a family of six, We had beautiful weather, but there was everything there if it had rained to amuse adults and teenagers. Excellent WiFi connection and great walks for the dog by the river and round the village. Loved the tram ride into Seaton. Easy access to Dorset and Devon.

June 2016

Liked everything! Decor, furniture, bedrooms, bathrooms, cleanliness, towels. It really is a home from home, everything you'll need, you'll find there. Kids (and big kids) will love the games room set up in the garage. I loved reading my book on the peaceful patio by the front door, with the evening sun on my face with a beautiful view of the church too.

It was a lovely touch finding a little welcome basket of a few teabags, coffee, sugar sachets etc, plus a pack of cookies and some milk in the fridge too! Whist we brought most things with us, we left the basket intact, but the cookies were great and the milk was very handy before we could get up to the shop (literally just up the road). I cannot praise the property enough. Please pass on my thanks to the owners for making this such a lovely place to stay. They have created this rental property with love and a great deal of care and attention to detail.

The location makes it perfect for travel both East or West along the Devon/Dorset coastline (the A3052 and the main road A35). We travelled as far as Weymouth and Portland (both really good places to explore) to the East, and down as far as Dartmouth to the West (beautiful at sunset!!). We also visited Beer, Seaton, West Bay, Lyme Regis, Charmouth (I found a fossil!!), Branscombe, Budleigh Salterton, Totnes and Paignton.
