Thank you so much for this lovely review. It sounds like you had an amazing stay and explored so much of the local area as well. The owners will be delighted that you and your dog enjoyed their gorgeous house. Donna, Customer Support

This cottage is in an ideal location in Colyton which has everything to offer within walking distance and some lovely walks to enjoy directly from the door.

A second stay at this delightful property with our family and it was just as enjoyable as the first time. So very spacious and spotlessly clean - the owners have thought of absolutely everything to make their guests welcome and we loved the added extras .. so very thoughtful. We will definitely be returning for a third time - this is one of the best holiday cottages we've stayed in (and there have been many) it's just lovely. The location is really great too .. we would highly recommend it. Marks out of ten .... fifteen! :-) ...

We have enjoyed many holidays in this cottage, it always feels clean and welcoming as soon as you step inside. Colyton is a lovely, residential town with some handy , local shops if you run out of anything. There are lots of places to enjoy good food nearby, and lots to see and do no matter what age you are. ...

Really enjoyed our week despite the damp weather. Cottage is in a fantastic location. Is a real home from home with everything you could possibly need. Really comfy with plenty of space. Anyone with an interest in trams or miniature railways is well catered for in this area! We really enjoyed the beaches at Seaton and Lyme Regis. Will definitely be back....
