St. Giles Cottage is very comfortable, clean and well-equipped. As we were there in October when the evenings can be chilly it was good that the owners did not restrict the heating at all. The cottage is in a peaceful location from which it is ideal to explore East Devon. We had not visited this area before and particularly liked Beer and Sidmouth and enjoyed a visit to the Donkey Sanctuary where there is a lovely restaurant.


June 2017

Delightfully restored old Devon cottage in the middle of a very pretty village and in a perfect location for visiting so may nice coastal towns, (Barrow Hill Farm Gardens is well worth a visit and crab sandwiches on Beer beach a real treat!).


March 2017

Very nice and well equipped cottage in a quiet and pretty part of the village. The cottage was very comfortable with a wood burner; well equipped kitchen; very comfortable beds. We enjoy walking and right past the cottage is the East Devon Way and walked about 8 miles in both directions. Once we got to the top of the hills surrounding the village the views were spectacular. We also walked to Sidmouth and the coast and back. Can't think of anything negative even the weather held for us. We would definately want to go back. Although we are seasoned vistors to Devon (North and South) this was the first time we ventured East and we were not disappointed.

A compact and tasteful cottage in a delightful setting by the river.


February 2016

Within easy reach of the cathedral and other sights of Exeter to the west, independent shops of Sidmouth to the south, and fossil hunting in Charmouth to the East, St. Giles Cottage had everything we needed for a fabulous holiday.


February 2016

Pretty views across the river and along the village street and towards the church called St Giles like the cottage. A cottage with character.
