    • “Parking was a nightmare. The garage offered was very small and had no light. You had to stand on a chair to turn bathroom lights on and off also fans. Beds had cheap mattresses. Cutlery was very cheap. Knifes for cooking hopeless. No dishes with lids for using in the oven. Only one fron door key we spoke to owner who said he would look into but did not. Light over cooker did not work. Key missing to one of the balconies. Would not stay there again.”

    Mrs Waugh, Rochester, January 2019

    • “The Dolphins is the best holiday cottage I've ever stayed in, immaculately clean and comfortable with the most outstanding views. So many wows it exceeded our expectations, perfectly situated for breath taking walks, great local pubs, cafes and local shops. Five star accommodation and delightful owners who ensure you have everything you could possibly need. Would have no hesitation to recommend and will definitely return, the village itself is super dog friendly and welcoming. Throughly relaxing luxiourious holiday.”

    Mrs Connaire, Monmouth, October 2018

    • “Fantastic location. Parking not on site, but no real hardship to park a short distance away. The village is great, award wining butchers, bakers and pubs. Brilliant little ferry to Teignmouth, only 60p for a child! Plenty of places to walk and socialise with a dog. Beaches are great, some good spots for pier jumping, crabing and kyacking. Lots of people collecting mussels at low tide. The cottage was modern, clean and cosy..... the view is outstanding. Thank you.”

    Mrs Farrell, Cambridge, July 2018

    • “Superb accommodation furnished to a high standard with great facilities - dishwasher / washing machine / fridge freezer / WiFi / SKY. Local caretaker should you need any help (we didn't). The balcony overhangs the sea / river at high tide and the main room windows provide excellent views day and night. 2 living rooms allows space for kids who want to watch their own TV. Will definitely be returning.”

    Mrs Reynolds, READING, July 2018

    • “third visit, speaks for itself! we all had a lovely time again, even had good weather! we enjoy the house, its outstanding views, the high quality of everything, the wonderfull location, not just the water views and the village, but also the coffee and eating places, especially the London Inn on the doorstep, great food and atmosphere. The automatic lighting is a bit annoying, and seems wasteful, and we never really quite got the hang of it, again - not a big deal, just thought would mention it! will probably be back next year...... many thanks Christine”

    Ms Browning, Surbiton, June 2018

    • “The Dolphins is the perfect Shaldon experience. Estuary views to whilst the days away rain and shine. Close to the beach for morning and evening doggy fun and stones throw from some delicious food at the London Inn or Clipper. The house itself has everything you need, as well as style and comfort to make your hikiday one to remember! The”

    Miss Baugh, Nottingham, May 2018
