    • “The cottage is in an excellent position right on the waters edge. It is very well equipped and was immaculately clean upon our arrival. It is decorated to a high standard. Communication with the owner was very positive in the run up to our arrival and useful information was provided with regards to parking and the local area as well as our preference for the beds being made up etc. Unfortunately we had one major issues with this cottage. Every night at about 10pm the lounge became infested with what we have been told are ‘Sand Hoppers’. 30+ would take over the lounge crawling around and jumping if you go near them. They would not only crawl over the floor but also up on to the sofa etc. This meant that the lounge could not be used in the evenings and every morning all of the now dead ‘Sand Hoppers’ (again 30+) required removing. Full photographic and video evidence is available. We have been informed by the owner via Sykes that they are well aware of this issues and it is due to the properties close proximity to the beach however I feel this should be mentioned in the advert as I would definitely not have booked this cottage. It is also completely unsuitable for someone with a dog as it states very clearly that it would have to stay downstairs in the lounge at all times meaning it would be completely overrun by the bugs. In summary a great cottage in an idiic locations however our break was completely spoilt by these ‘Sand Hoppers’. We were refunded £50 as a gesture of goodwill which I feel is pitiful against the near £1400 cost of the cottage in the height of summer. Clarity of the issue is required in the holiday property description so people can make an informed decision on if it is still suitable for their requirements.”

    • “The cottage was lovely, bigger than expected and very well maintained. The information provided in the cottage was really helpful. Kate (the owner) really provided a home away from home Looking at where to book for next year”

    Mrs Lashbrooke, Leicester, July 2018

    • “1 The Quay is just lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our third stay in this beautiful location. Kate and Iain have gone to great lengths to make 1 The Quay both comfortable and very attractive. A vase of flowers on the table, along with wine, biscuits and also milk in the fridge was a very nice welcoming touch. Lympstone itself is a very friendly village and it's so easy to get about on foot or by train, down to Exmouth or up to Topsham and Exeter. Only one fault - I don't think a hair dryer's provided - at least I couldn't find one!”

    Mrs Plas, BRISTOL, June 2018

    • “We were very fortunate with exceptional weather, the sunsets fantastic and great walks all around the village with our dog, very pet friendly. Also the villagers are very friendly. You can park up in the car park and use the train to get most places, buy a weekly ticket and it saves having to pop back daily.”

    Mr Urry, ROMSEY, May 2018
