Mrs Robinson May 2022
Hobnob is delightful, spacious and well equipped. There is a large private garden that catches the sun all day. There are beautiful walks around the estate from the door and the property is an ideal base for exploring this beautiful area. We would definitely choose to return.
Mrs Wilson April 2022
The setting for Hobnob is just perfect being part of the Rousdon Eastate with a magnificent 350 acre garden to enjoy. Hobnob has space to relax and the additional touches of strawberry jam, scones, cream, milk and Lemon Drizzle cake as a welcome basket is delightful. As a second visit to Hobnob we were just as enthralled with the cottage and had another wonderful holiday. Thank you Katy for a lovely cottage we have booked to come again in 2023 Jean & James Wilson and Jack our Cockapoo.

Fab cottage , Katie is a lovely host we would return again without hesitation.
Mrs Wilson October 2021
As soon as we arrived the cottage felt like home the additional welcoming touches of fresh Strawberries cream, milk, Lemon Drizzle cake and a packet of Hobnob biscuits was an added extra. The Rousdon estate is a wonderful setting, beautiful walks for us and our dog. Thank you Katy for a lovely cottage we have booked to come again in 2022 Jean & James Wilson and Jack our Cockapoo.
Revd Payne September 2021
We were so impressed with this property and had a wonderful time. It was so well equipped and the garden was perfect for our Golden Retriever Meg. The welcome pack of cake, delicious cream tea, strawberries, milk and tea was especially appreciated on our arrival. We were thrilled to meet Katy the owner before we left too. Thank you for such a lovely holiday Classic Cottages .

Beautifully appointed property in a wonderful location. Furnished to an excellent standard, with some delightful touches. A real home from home. thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the property was spot on, well equipped with everything in excellent condition. Pleasant garden, ample parking. A delightful part of the country with easy access to surrounding areas. Walking is good without having to take out the car. Decent restaurants in nearby Axmouth for those not wanting to cook.
Mrs Frost July 2021
Stunning cottage in a great location. Very peaceful.
Mrs Clayfield June 2021
A wonderful holiday home in a stunning quiet location but close enough to get to lots of places. And what a bath! Would totally recommend it.
Mr Green April 2021
Would recommend other than the lack of heating. My understanding is the owner has now removed the lock from the heating controls

An excellent house on a magical Victorian cliff top estate which is a paradise for dog owners, and close to the delights of the Jurassic coast.
Mrs Buxton September 2020
We had a wonderful stay in Hobnob Cottage and even messaged Katy to try and stay longer. It's a great house, in a perfect location and we'll definitely stay again. Katy is a wonderful host (super friendly also) and answered all queries quickly and fully, both before and during our stay. It's possibly the best house we've stayed in, over the many years of holiday rentals.
Mrs Noffke July 2020
We had a lovely stay at HobNob - spacious, well presented and located for families and dogs on the Devon/Dorset coast.
Ms Ramrayka July 2020
So happy with our short break here- perfect location and gorgeous cottage! The owner was delightful- we want to come back already!
Dr Ramamoorthy July 2020
The cottage was lovely and was very well equipped - better than any other cottage we stayed at
The garden was lovely and large and dog friendly
The estate is a beautiful setting although the walk to the beach is about half an hour and a challenge on the way back!
We had a wonderful week- thank you!!
Mrs Mackie December 2019
Outstanding property and location, highly recommended. Very welcoming, home from home, would love to return in the summer months so that we can explore further.
Mrs Burrows October 2019
If you want quiet surroundings with lovely walks this is the place for you. The accommodation is lovely and you could spend a whole week here without leaving the estate as in the summer there is a private beach. Our children and dog loved it here. I would highly recommend this property
Mr Jeffrey August 2019
Was delighted to see Hobnob available to rent once again, this was our fourth family visit and we had a great stay again. The location on the Rousden estate was very peaceful and the walk to the private beach was delightful. The cottage is well kept with good facilities making for a lovely vacation. The new café and bakery a short walk from the entrance to the estate is a delightful find for a leisurely breakfast or lunch if you do not want to cook. We loved our stay in Hobnob.
Mrs Neish July 2019
Rousdon Estate is so quiet and peaceful. We were in another world.... fabulous.... ps. Great cottage too !!
Mrs Sullivan May 2019
Fabulous peaceful location within easy reach of amazing walks, beaches and coastal towns.
Mr Hutchison February 2019
We really enjoyed our stay at Hobnob. A spacious, clean and well equipped house in a fabulous location. Particularly enjoyed being able to walk to the private beach and the local artisan bakery in the morning. Also a great location for exploring the East Devon coast and nearby Lyme Regis.
Mrs Watson December 2018
A very comfortable, warm and modern house. Dog friendly with all the hard surface flooring downstairs. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and were happy to be contacted if we required anything. We didn't, everything went very smoothly. We were particularly impressed with the huge Christmas tree (with lights and decorations) in the hallway and attractive Christmas decorations around the house. Plus delicious food items on arrival and even treats for the dogs.
Mrs Cole September 2018
Fantastic cottage and location. Well-appointed kitchen. Local estate and village bakery are excellent, and Lyme / Seaton etc are a short drive. One of the best properties I've stayed in.
Mr Barton June 2018
An excellent property in a superb tranquil setting on a private estate. Beautiful garden views over the private church at the bottom of the garden and lovely walks around the estate.
The owner was a delight to deal with - very helpful and had clearly given much thought to the decor and excellent facilities provided. Her mum had also provided a cream tea for our arrival which was very welcome after an 8 hour journey !
A top property, owner and location.
