Ms Wright October 2021
From the warm greeting at the farm house, to the walk up through the Orchard to the cabin, we knew we'd booked to stay at a very special place. A wonderful place to unwind from city life, the cabin is well thought-out. Small, but perfectly formed. We managed to cook very decent meals using the single-ringed hob and combi microwave/oven. The hot tub was an absolute joy!
Mrs Taylor September 2021
Lovely secluded hideaway.
Miss Andrews August 2021
We had a lovely time staying at The Old Orchard Cabin. It was lovely and peaceful. We enjoyed the hot tub under the stars. The hosts were very helpful and accommodating.
We will be booking again one day.
Mr Chalmers July 2021
A wonderful place to stay and a an eye opener on how what appears to be a small cabin is more than enough space. Food for thought.
Mrs Lipscombe July 2021
Lovely place to stay. We had a really relaxing and enjoyable stay. Would recommend the Old Orchard Cabin to anyone who wanted a quiet get away to unwind.
Miss Ford June 2021
Lovely views, all tucked away by yourself and lovely villages/ towns to walk to! Our little pooch loved every minute of it! Especially hearing and looking at the horses! Very clean and nice space to get away to. Worth every bit thank you!
Mrs Wood May 2021
We loved how peaceful and secluded the location was and of course the views were spectacular. The hot tub was a fantastic way to relax at the end of the day too.
Miss Barton May 2021
This was by far the most beautiful and relaxing setting you could ask for. The hosts were perfect, just left us to it all week but we’re on hand if you needed them. Perfectly located and close to Beer and Lyme Regis which were both beautiful places to go visit. I would highly recommend everyone book this place!
Ms Malcolm May 2021
We had a beautiful few days staying at Old Orchard Cabin. It’s incredibly peaceful. The wood fired hot tub in the dark, looking at the stars, hearing the river in the valley below is magical. Dogs have to be kept on a lead as the owners have livestock, but there are plenty of walks nearby. We would definitely recommend this location. The cabin is on an incline so hard to reach for the not so able bodied, but we felt it added to the fun!
Miss Franklin December 2020
Lovely place to get away for a few days. Great location with excellent walks from the doorstep and beautiful coast just down the road. The cabin was perfect- cosy and with everything you needed. The hot tub was divine - especially on the cold, clear night where you could see the stars and hear the wildlife rustling around you. Friendly hosts. Thanks for a great break.
Miss Baker October 2020
The cabin was beautifully located and hidden away nicely, with stunning views to wake up to. Great idea to have a log burner, it made it a little more magical and kept us cosy on the chilly evenings. The hot tub was perfect to relax in after spending the day out exploring. I highly recommend this cosy little retreat, perfect for a relaxing getaway and great for doggies too.
Mr Light October 2020
Perfect location for a relaxing break. Will definitely recommend and will be booking again.
Mr Kurkov September 2020
Waking up in the morning to that amazing view, sat in the hot tub at night counting the stars and listening to the wildlife was truly special. Would recommend this place for anyone wishing to unwind and switch off from daily life. Ideally situated for exploring surrounding areas and beaches, Beer and Sidmouth are a must to visit. Thank you so much.
Mr Goody September 2020
A lovely little cabin in a delightful and secluded location. Ideal for a short break - very relaxing. There are some good pubs in the village which is within easy walking distance. Highly recommended!
Ms Lynam-Cotter September 2020
Old orchard cabin was the perfect getaway for my partner's birthday. Extremely comfortable and well appointed cabin, and the hot tub with views of the Devon countryside was amazing. Lovely welcoming hosts too, who made sure we had what we needed when we arrived. Have recommended to multiple friends already!

Perfect peaceful location to get away from it all, lovely views perfect for the dog great accommodation we loved it and will definitely return
Mr King November 2019
We had a fantastic weekend. We went there to relax and get away from the daily grind and that is exactly what we did. The cabin was perfect, the owners we're very friendly and the hot tub was great. I would highly recommend this little cabin to anyone just wanting to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Mrs Goulding October 2019
The owners really have thought of everything. The cottage was warm and cosy and everything we could have needed was provided. A lovely welcoming touch with homemade goodies and a little milk, tea and coffee in case we hadn't shopped yet. The owners were on hand if needed but didn't intrude. The cottage is ideally situated to explore the area with some lovely walks on the doorstep. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit would love to come again.
MISS BRITTAIN October 2019
We had a great stay. The location is lovely and the setting and farm beautiful. Facilities were great, the hob ring worked well and alongside the combi microwave, cooking was made easy. We loved the hot tub, it took a while to work out when best to heat up the water, without making it too cold or too hot by the time we wanted to enjoy it, but once you get the hang of it, it’s great. My recommendation to other guests would be to take a pair of slip on shoes such as flip flops for accessing the hot tub in the rain, so you don’t dirty the floor inside. It was lovely having the horses in the field next to us and being surrounded by Apple trees was beautiful. The host was great, helpful and informative, he had a perfect balance of letting us know where he was if we needed him but let us enjoy our stay privately and peacefully. I would definitely recommend this holiday to someone who wants a peaceful stay in the countryside, but with quick access to nearby towns. Definitely worth a visit to Lyme Regis and West Bay, two local towns. Overall our stay was lovely and we would love to come back again. Thank you.
Pure Nuff Stuff Ltd Kavanaugh September 2019
Perfect for those looking for a real retreat, this is the ideal place for a bit of quiet contemplation and self care.
Mrs Topham September 2019
Blissful location. Very relaxing.
Mr Bilson August 2019
This cottage is excellent, it has everything you could want. Sitting in the hot tub looking at the stars each night made our holiday. We wanted to do the walk along the river to town but our dog Billy is to old .
Mrs Jethwa August 2019
Fantastic cabin with great views across the orchard and countryside, cosy with everything you need. perfect spot for exploring the surrounding area, with walks on your doorstep and coastal paths and beeches just a short drive away. The hot tub is superb and great to relax in after exploring beautiful Devon. Julie
Mr Dennis July 2019
Lovely cabin in an idyllic location, very well equipped. There are lots of things too do nearby and a wood fired hot tub to relax in at the end of the day . The hosts were very welcoming without being imposing , we have already recommended this gem to friends and family and hope to return in the near future.
Mr Willmott June 2019
We booked Orchard Cabin as we wanted somewhere secluded and private. We were not disappointed. The Cabin is a glamping experience, so don't expect it to be fully home from home, but is is clean and warm and has the basics covered.
And That hot tub, oh That hot tub. You full it with spring water, so no need for chemicals, which is a luxury in itself. The view over the valley, just adds to the charm.
Our hosts were helpful and always available without being imposing.
We spent a week at the Cabin and left wanting more. There is lots to explore nearby, but balance with time at the Cabin, where you can slow the days right down.
We always enjoy our holidays booked with Classic Cottages. After each and every one, we vow to return to the same place, but to date we never have. This is different. We are already looking to book next June and sooner too if we can.
To sum up in a single word? Perfect

Miss Pointer May 2019
I've just got back from my stay at Old Orchard Cabin, I had the most amazing break and feel totally relaxed. The cabin was perfect, stunning location and fully equipped. The additional extras such as the bubbly in the fridge and the chocolate biscuits were delicious and very thoughtful! The hot tub was a luxury and I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in it, watching the sunset and starlit sky whilst the miniature horses grazed happily next to me in the field. The owners were lovely and very accomadating, I have already passed on details to two friends who were amazed at my photos I took. Highly recommended for a relaxing break and to reconnect with nature. My dog loved it too and there are some fantastic dog walks right from the cabin! My only wish is that I didn't have to leave. I have major holiday blues now and will definitely return one day! Thank you so much, this break was exactly what I was looking for and more. Louise and Jasper the dog :)
Mr Gibbs April 2019
Lovely cabin with hot tub Beautiful walk along the river into colyton So many places to visit nearby Very good hosts and will be returning next year
Mr. Gibson April 2019
Great for a weekend getaway but would hesitate on a weeks stay.
Reply from Classic Cottages
We're glad you had a great weekend - Old Orchard Cabin certainly lends itself very well to quick peaceful weekend getaways as well as longer stays. We do appreciate that glamping is not going to be to everyone's taste however so please don't hesitate to get in touch if we can be of any help finding you the perfect property for those longer breaks. Bryony, Customer Support
Adam Goodliffe January 2019
Superb break in a lovely location - hosts were excellent the whole stay. Will definitely be back!
Miss Watson December 2018
The cabin is in a beautiful location, we particularly enjoyed waking up to our friendly neighbours (the ducks and ponies!) Michael & Fiona had thought of everything to make our time relaxing and enjoyable, including all the littles things we could possibly need. The cabin itself is well decorated (we very much appreciated the Christmas decorations!) and incredibly cosy - we had the log burner going at every opportunity! The hot tub was fantastic after a long day exploring the nearby towns and villages, particularly at night under the stars. We will be recommending this to friends and hope to visit again!
Miss Benney December 2018
Snug and cosy. Well equipped. We had a great time. Being dog friendly was a massive bonus. The hot tub was great, we now realise that it takes longer to heat up in the winter due to colder water starting temperature but we got it to just the right temperature and thoroughly enjoyed our soaks. Highy recommend.
Miss Houghton November 2018
We had a lovely holiday and the cabin was perfect for what we wanted
Mr Lambdon November 2018
Old orchard cabin is the prefect escape to the country it so relaxing and peaceful I can’t wait to go again
Miss Fiederle November 2018
It absolutely exceeded mine and my partners expectations. Michael was a fantastic host and even as a winter break it could not have been more perfect. The cabin and hot tub were immaculate and everything was finished to a very high spec. Even the locals in Colyton were friendly and it was a break away we’ll never forget.
Miss Marlborough October 2018
The hosts were amazing, the views and especially the hot tub was a massive hit with us, the whole experience was brilliant, I would recommend to friends and family and have had loads of compliments on pictures I have put on social media asking where it was as it was so beautiful, I loved it here and would definitely come back again, perfect was to spend a relaxing few days away for my partners birthday! P.S - even better as we were able to take our dog with us, that’s a big thing for me
Ms Whysall October 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were made very welcome and would return.
Mr Trick October 2018
Great location, it was lovely to be away from all the restrictions you have when staying in a Hotel. The circular walk to Beer, Seaton and back to Colyton was simply beautiful .
Mr Atkins October 2018
Great place,brilliant position,peaceful. Can’t wait to return.
Mr Mepstead September 2018
lying in bed in the mornings you can see the beautiful surroundings with privacy ,
Mr Mills August 2018
The place is great, host was fantastic. Not a bad thing to say about it.
Mrs Clayton August 2018
We loved our stay at Orchard Cabin, it really did live up to our expectations and beyond. With thoughtful owners, the cabin is very well equipped with lots of lovely little extras such as fresh eggs from the farm’s hens and a scrummy home made jam. The wood burning stove is the star of the show and as much fun to get going as it is to spend time in! Colyton is a lovely little town, with delightful walks on your doorstep and it’s far enough away from the crowds but close enough to be beside the sea in no time. Would love to return.
Mr Bohn August 2018
We absolutely loved our stay at the Cottage. It is a cosy, clean and tranquil place. Michael and Fiona have quite clearly thought of all the little details which makes this a perfect weekend or weeks getaway. If you need some peace and quiet but don't want to plant yourself in the back and beyond this place is perfect - it has the perfect punt of privacy but isn't to far from the farmhouse if you need any assistance. The cottage itself is gorgeous but the surroundings really make it extra special. We are looking forward to returning - thank you for such a wonderful stay
