A lovely cottage in a pretty village tucked away in a quiet location with excellent access to the coast. Very well furnished, cosy and homely with everything you could need plus a few very thoughtful extras from the owner. We would definitely visit again.

Mrs Boneham August 2020
Lovely clean and homely cottage. Location is lovely, very peaceful and lots of walks straight from the door over the fields or through the village. You can see to the sea from the top of the road too.
Mrs Bradshaw September 2019
We had a great stay at St Giles. The cottage is very comfortable and a great location. Nice and quiet but with local shop and pub very near. Excellent all round.
Miss Whaley September 2019
Beautiful cottage, well decorated and fitted out. Little touches that made us welcome. Very peaceful but near to local towns and villages.
Ms Bradney July 2019
Lovely cottage in a fantastic location with some great beaches nearby and also some fabulous walking/running routes. The cottage is nicely decorated with a well-equipped kitchen, and a small but dreamy garden where you can have breakfast in the sunshine, listening to the stream that runs alongside.

The cottage completely matches the description provided. It's in a beautiful setting. Plenty of things to see and do in local area but also perfect to sit quietly and relax.

Very impressed with the cottage and quality of everything supplied. Nice touch to have milk and wine in the fridge on our arrival. Instructions on keys etc were very clear. Comfy furniture, beds and good towels! Well equipped kitchen! Car parking was fine - we managed to get our 4 series BMW in the car space without difficulty. (anything bigger probably wouldn't fit!) Lovely log burner and plenty of heating / hot water. Location is great for access to coastal areas (Branscombe for a cliff walk; Donkey Sanctuary; Jurassic coast to Lyme Regis etc.) Nice friendly pub in the village - good curry! really enjoyed our stay at St Giles Cottage :-)

A great village location not far from Sidmouth. We'll equipped property with many personal touches to ensure a 'home away from home'.
Mrs Taylor March 2018
This is a lovely cottage. Perfectly placed for visiting coastal area. Quiet village, with pub. Cottage was beautifully kept and furnished. It felt like home straightaway. We loved the Woodburner too! The owner had thought of everything to make our stay perfect. Thank you

Lovely cottage in a good position in a very friendly village.
Mrs Derry October 2017
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.
Mrs McNiff 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!).
Mrs Keeler 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.
Mrs Martin August 2016

St Giles is a lovely, cosy and comfortable cottage in a beautiful location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would most definitely return.
Mr Clayton April 2016
A compact and tasteful cottage in a delightful setting by the river.
Mrs Carter 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.
Mr Marsh 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.
