    Richard Lowday,

    • “We were looking for a place to celebrate my mothers 80th birthday that had a swimming pool. The Coach House was ideal. The location was just right to get to Exeter, Exmouth & Topsham as well as a quick trip to River Cottage at Axminister. The hosts were welcoming and helpful without intruding. The accommodation was clean, tidy and just as described. The hosts provided a great set welcome items to make moving in easier.”

    Guest's Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “The six of us Jarvise's have so much enjoyed such a wonderful base for our celebratory weekend. As a family, we have been self catering for over 40 years, both in the UK and Europe. In all these years this is the best equipped in every way. It has been carefully thought through with little caring touches. It was capped with a warm and friendly welcome. So we would like to all give you a bit vote of thanks.”

    The Jarvis Family,

    • “What a lovely place! We had a very exciting time exploring Dartmoor on the coast, scoffing cream teas and mooching around Exmouth. So nice to come back to our lovely base at the Coach House. The best moment for the boys was seeing the sheep in the field and your garden! Perhaps not what you'd planned but hugely exciting for our animal fans. Many thanks for a lovely stay.”

    Ms J Brooke,

    • “Great peaceful location excellent accommodation, so well equipped; we had it recommended by some people we met in Kefalonia. Lots of lovely resorts to visit beautiful inland villages, good road network. I really enjoyed the indoor pool. We had drinks on the patio. Anyone looking for holiday in Devon would be highly delighted by this fantastic accommodation.”

    Guest's Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “Lovely location, quite remote and just perfect for a weekend 'away from it all'. The house was warm and well-specified; the owner were very hospitable. Thank you!”

    Mr Badger,

    • “What a fabulous place! We had a lovely week, relaxing, swimming, exploring and even managed a bit of sailing. Andy & Judy are exceptional hosts. The Coach House was immaculate and we wanted for nothing. The views are excellent and even the sheep provided some excitement when they temporarily escaped into the garden; they were herded by Andy & Judy back to their field (no mean feat at 7.30 am on a Monday morning!). A walk to A-La-Ronde is worthwhile and continuing the stroll into Lympstone and Exmouth is a must. The Swan Inn is very hospitable and the Redwing superb (busy even in our week so worth booking). Thank you for a brilliant holiday - we will make it two weeks next time!”

    Mrs Helen Quaintmere,

    • “What an amazing week! The Coach House is a perfect base for exploring the area. My girls have enjoyed the beach at Exmouth, Paignton Zoo, Brixham Harbour. The added bonus was the swimming pool and we have enjoyed a swim every day. Thank you for the delicious scones on arrival, most welcome! Would recommend the Saddles Arms for food (at the end of the road) - probably best to book in advance as it is very popular; we have really enjoyed the week!”

    Mrs Pocock,

    • “We had a lovely week in this very nice house. Lots of light and sunshine inside. Everything you need is present in the house and outside. Andy - you made us feel at home here. We would love to come back sometime.”

    The Veefkind Family,

    • “When we arrive full of excitement, I thought "What a beautiful home". Thank you for the scones and clotted cream - just what was needed after a long journey. We had a lovely week. We loved Paignton Zoo. We loved swimming every day and the swing at the end of the garden was great fun. We would love to come back.”

    The Webb Family,

    • “Judy & Andy are perfect hosts. The cottage is situated at the rear of their main house. From the top level one can view the River Exe. The Cottage is very clean and is well equipped to ensure you enjoy your stay. Both bedrooms are upstairs as is the shower, bath and toilet. Horses and sheep are close by in paddocks and even though you have the rural feel and sounds, it only take minutes of travel by car to enjoy the enchanted small township of Lympstone and the beautiful surrounding Devonshire countryside. Also as a unique feature they have an indoor swimming pool in its own independent building and Judy & Andy have this also well equipped with everything that one would need and enjoy. If you are looking for a truly unique and real Devonshire experience, I would highly recommend The Coach House.”

    Guest's Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “I was speechless. After a long absolute pleasure coming into this lovely cottage. The view of rolling green hills was gorgeous...the hospitality was warming...the homemade scones were delicious! I would definitely come back here or recommend to family and friends.”

    Ms Mijares,

    • “....a surprise birthday weekend. Judy and Andy were very accommodating. The best surprise was that the pool was made ready for my arrival! Great house...very well-equipped...stunning location...will definitely use again for another long weekend.”

    Ms Sweeting,

    • “We have enjoyed every moment being here at The Coach House. A beautiful, quiet retreat from the 'real' world. Loved the pool.”

    Mr & Mrs Harker,

    • “One week just isn't enough! Best equipped holiday cottage we have stayed in. Everything you need.Mr & Mrs Covill, August 2012”

    Mr & Mrs Covill,

    • “Lovely accommodation in a lovely peaceful spot. Made to feel very welcome by Judy & Andy - scones, cream & jam - a lovely touch on arrival! Thanks for the loan of your lovely Coach House and pool.”

    Mr & Mrs Pester,

    • “We have just returned from a fantastic week's stay at The Coach House with our 3 children aged 7, 8 and 12. Upon arrival we had a very warm welcome from Andy and his son Alex who explained all the essentials and then left us to get on with our holiday. The indoor pool is excellent and our children used it every morning when they woke up and every evening when we returned from a day out. The Coach House is in an excellent location, just a few miles from the M5 which makes it very handy for days out in Dawlish, Teignmouth, Torquay, Paignton, Exmouth and many more locations. There are many places to eat out locally to suit all budgets from the Puffing Billy close by at one end of the budget to the Boat House in Exmouth at the other end - excellent The property is kept very well and has everything you need readily available. I would thoroughly recommend this property to anybody considering a holiday in this part of Devon and in particular for those with children who would love the use of an indoor pool.”

    Guest's Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “Third visit (twice this year - I am so lucky). Amy & I have had another recuperative holiday due to the warm welcome from Andy & Judy and the peace & quiet. The Coach House seems like a home from home.”

    Mrs McGinty,

    • “Thank you for such a lovely stay in your Coach House. It was warm and cosy and a lovely long weekend get away. The Devon cream was lovely and we all enjoyed having a cream tea! The pool was great and was considerably warmer than our outside pool!”

    The Ball Family,

    • “We had a delightful 5 day break. The Coach House is light and airy during the day and snug and cosy at night. We were pleased to discover so many traffic-free cycle paths, especially the one straight into Exeter.”

    Mr & Mrs Hildreth,

    • “The whole place is fantastic! From the moment we arrived and were greeted by home made scones by Judy and Andy we felt at home. The house has everything we needed for our family of 5, including an indoor pool and space for the boys to play outside. Our hosts were incredibly helpful and friendly and made our stay really stress-free. The house itself is close to Lympstone which is a lovely small coastal village, and really convenient for visting Exmouth and the rest of Devon (and Cornwall). We had a fantastic time and wouldn't hesitate to book here again.”

    Guest's Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “Lovely welcoming house, great pool, great views and friendly owner, very helpful”


    • “We had a great half term holiday at The Coach House. The house itself is perfect and fully equipped. We loved the food at The Puffing Billy and also The Redwing. We had great days out at Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton. Martin & Miles went rock climbing - great fun!”

    Mr And Mrs Gibbs,

    • “This little property is amazing; it is equipped with everything you might need during a holiday...down to some dishwasher tablets and soap. The hosts are wonderfully welcoming too, but then leave you alone to enjoy all the delights of the swimming pool and the local attractions. Whilst The Coach House feels remote, it is a stone's throw from a delightful garden centre that stocks everything from milk and fresh bread, through to fruit and vegetables to locally produced cakes. The National Trust's A La Ronde is also within walking or cycling distance, as is the Exe Trail, a walking/cycling route from Exmouth to Exeter. We stayed in a warm summer week with our 2 children and baby, but have no doubt that the place would be just as enticing in the winter with a real wood-burner for the property, a heated indoor pool, and plenty of books and games for fireside nights-in.”

    Guest's Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “I have given these scores because the cottage was superb - well equipped, clean and a great location. We received a very warm welcome from the owners who were very supportive and helpful.”
