As described above Foxglove Cottage is truly “A little bit of heaven in Devon”.
Mrs Ayres June 2023
Beautiful cottage, idyllic location, far away from almost everywhere. Super comfy beds, and well equipped kitchen. The pub serves beautiful food, booking recommended, perfect for when you don’t want to cook on your holiday
Mrs Miller May 2023
What an absolute gem Foxglove Cottage is! The owners have thought of everything; the beds are superbly comfy and the kitchen has everything you will need. There's a huge Smart TV so you can watch your favourite shows and the garden and terrace are unbelievably tranquil. We loved to sit out on the deck in the mornings, as it was a real sun-trap. Our dog was well catered for in the small but fully enclosed garden, and it was great knowing he was safe.
The friendly owners Steve and Hazel were really welcoming and the food in the pub was amazing (booking is strongly advised, as previous guests have mentioned). We sat outside the pub and enjoyed a drink in the sun when we arrived and on the last night there was live music outside which we thoroughly enjoyed.
The location was spot on, we were easily able to access Exmoor and north Devon and had some fabulous days out and walks with our labrador - he absolutely loved it.
If you are thinking of booking Foxglove Cottage we would heartily recommend it - you won't regret it.
Mrs Charles May 2023
A lovely cottage in a great location next door to a fantastic dog friendly pub! The hosts were very welcoming and looked after us throughout our visit. I would recommend booking a table in the pub in advance - the meals were delicious. The cottage was extremely clean throughout and beds very comfortable. We had a brilliant holiday, thank you!

The cottage is a short drive from South Moulton which has a Sainsbury's and a petrol station.The village is lovely and quiet and the beds so comfy, had the best nights sleeps there ,so peaceful.The cottage was spotlessly clean and very cosy and warm.Great having 2 king-size beds and 2 ensuites.And of course having the pub next door for food and drinks after a day out in the beautiful Devon countryside is perfect.We loved our stay here.
Mrs Hemming April 2023
This was the latest in many Classic Cottages that we have stayed in and we loved it! We have already made a booking to go back! Such a relaxing spot. The cottage had everything you could want - amazing beds, and beautiful outside space. Lovely walks straight from the cottage, so our Labrador was very happy too!
The Exeter Inn was wonderful too - fantastic food and service and only a few steps away - such a find!!

MR DUTHIE March 2023
Excellent accommodation , very clean and well stocked. The owners Hazel and Steve were great hosts , very informative and friendly and the food at the Exeter Inn was delicious- you must try the lightly battered fish and chips if eating in the pub. We all enjoyed our stay including our rough collie .

Mrs Davies February 2023
We had six wonderful days in Foxglove Cottage. Very clean, very warm and cosy in February, a lovely little garden, lovely friendly helpful hosts (Hazel and Steve), and The Exeter Inn next door served wonderful food, real ale and wine! Two ensuites with great showers and the beds were super and ensured we slept well. We had everything we needed and can't wait to go back.

Comfortable cottage with nice beds and bathrooms. Decking and garden very good for sitting out. Pub next door with good food and warm welcome. Quiet location.
Mrs Murphy May 2022
The cottage was lovely and so were our host. The Exeter Inn was very handy being right next door apart from the opening hours. Sunday lunch lovely.
Mrs Kermode May 2022
I would recommend this cottage, the village is a haven of peace, has lots of footpaths and beautiful views. The Exeter Inn is a busy, friendly hostelry with the added bonus of Steve and Hazel as hosts. Hazel’s cooking is excellent which is very popular with diners.
Mrs Pawelczyk April 2022
Steve and Hazel were excellent hosts, friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble.
The cottage was clean, bright and well equipped.
The food at The Exeter Inn was exceptional and very reasonably priced. The real ales were well kept and the Romanian Sauvignon white wine was surprisingly good. We will definitely be back.
Mrs Jennings October 2021
The perfect venue with fabulous hosts.
Mr Parry September 2021

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Ms Newton September 2021
Wonderful hosts, very friendly and most helpful. The cottage is small but lovely and it has good outside space. We had a very nice week
Mr Williams September 2021
Superb accomodation. Met all our needs. Steve and Hazel were superb hosts. Having the Exeter Inn next door was a fantastic bonus. Food and atmosphere superb every evening. Handy location for the coastal attractions such as Appldore and Instow. Will definitely return for another dose of Devon air and hospitality.
Mr Jones August 2021
A well decorated and comfortable contemporary luxury cottage, that gave our family a unique getaway. It offered all the facilities we required, and it is ideally located near golf course, beaches and other tourist attractions (ie Dartington crystal). Please experience - Foxglove cottage - Exeter Inn.
Ms Farooqui August 2021
Lovely cottage and friendly hosts. Highly recommend The Exeter Inn for dinner - excellent cooking and a great atmosphere, both well above an average pub.
Mrs Watkins July 2021
The cottage was pristine; it was spotlessly clean, compact and very well equipped with everything we needed. There was plenty of space for the three of us (although it comfortably sleeps four). Everything was brand new as we were only the third group to have stayed there since it had been refurbished. The owners, who also owned the excellent 'Exeter Inn' right next door were friendly, helpful and made us feel very welcome. We would also highly recommend eating at the 'Exeter Inn' where the food was home cooked and of an excellent standard. We also felt it was reasonably priced with a varied menu.
The location is also excellent, within easy reach of all the lovely holiday towns and villages of North Devon and some superb, sandy beaches and coastal walks. We cannot recommend this highly enough!
Mr Henderson July 2021
Internal layout ideal.......external area........decking and grassed area proved to be very acceptable to Ben (the dog)........not to say we did not enjoy......ecause we did.
Mr Pointon July 2021
We were delighted to be the first guests at Foxglove Cottage, it was a charming place to stay, extremely tranquil with plenty of outdoor space. Steve and Hazel were very welcoming and amenable and could not have been more helpful hosts. The cottage itself is bijou but very well-equipped, especially the kitchen for self-catering or long breakfasts. The beds were amazingly comfortable, and the surroundings are so quiet that you are guaranteed a good night’s sleep! The garden is a lovely spot for contemplation and reflection or a gin and tonic... Failing that, The Exeter Inn is a terrific pub, with a great range of beers and the food is well-executed. The locals are very friendly with suggestions of where to visit and what to see. Chittlehamholt is a great spot for day trips to the coast, Exmoor and even for Cornwall. Enjoy!
