We had a lovely week at The Old Stables! Jon and Emma were wonderful hosts who were on hand for any questions we had, but they left us to our own devices. The cottage was immaculate, the kitchen had everything we needed for the week and the rooms were wonderful sizes! It was the perfect quiet break away that we needed with exceptional views!

We really enjoyed our stay at The Old Stables. The property is large, well put together and well stocked. It was a joy to have breakfast in the enclosed garden. The property is quite rural so requires a car to get to local amenities and coastal towns, but all within a short drive. We enjoyed the walks around the footpath.

excellent cottage finished off to a very high standard, very comfortable and a pleasure to stay there. The owners were very helpful and found time to explain any queries we had and places of interest.

We loved this very roomy two person cottage snuggly sat in the old farm courtyard. With some good outside space accessing a lovely garden.

We spent 6 nights at The Old Stables. Its perfectly located for exploring East Devon and West Dorset, only 20/25 minutes to the coast. It is very peaceful and you must be happy driving on narrow country lanes. The hosts are delightful and very informative with excellent recommendations for local eateries!

Beautiful renovation and fittings to the property. Also lovely private outdoor seating area (sun trap). Not overlooked even though it was joined to farmhouse. Jon and Emma were very welcoming and helpful. Plenty of storage space.

Lovely cottage for two, well furnished, good hosts, great bed.

If you want a relaxing break in the beautiful Devon countryside this is for you. Emma and Jon are great hosts and clearly very passionate about what they do. The property is exceptionally well equipped, tastefully decorated and makes for a very comfortable home from home.

Would highly recommend this cottage and would not hesitate to book it again. We were made very welcome by Jon & Emma.

This is such a lovely place, a great place to come back to after days out exploring East Devon. The cottage is very comfortable and clean, everything is in top condition. The wood burner was a real treat in the evenings. Emma and John were lovely hosts. We wish we could have stayed longer!

The cottage is beautifully done out and very comfortable. There is a lovely patio at the back looking out onto the family garden. We really enjoyed walking through the local countryside and our visits to Sidmouth and Exmouth which are both within relatively short driving distance. Emma and Jon were very welcoming.
