We enjoyed staying in the cottage which was roomy and well equipped. In an ideal world when there were 4 of us over a weekend an extra or separate WC would have been good but not a deal breaker. the log burner was a bonus as the weather was very cold and wet so we able to feel cosy in the lounge ...(Read more)
A very warm welcome awaited us from Rosie, as well as delicious cream tea, biscuits and chocolates. The cottage was a perfect place to get away from it all, providing interesting walks, wildlife and peace and quiet, and everything we needed for the two of us and Winston the dog, to enjoy our ...(Read more)
This is a beautiful and spacious property in a lovely part of the country. There are ample walks nearby and lovely beaches and pubs. We (4 grown ups, two teenagers and a 6 month old baby) had a brilliant holiday. One tiny niggle... the oven is very slow. But that's a small thing in an otherwise ...(Read more)

It was perfect for a significant Birthday and was much admired by all our many guests. The "Predator" caused much discussion and was admired by Sci-Fi fans!! The views are ...(Read more)

Wow, everything about our stay at Ayrmer house was perfect. The pictures on the website don't do justice to the views you see from every window. The house is in a beautiful quiet location and has everything you could possibly need for a perfect holiday.(Read more)

Valley Lodge is a well equipped property ideal for family get-togethers. Bordered on one side by the B3227 and on the other by the River Exe (unfenced from garden area). Easy to miss the entrance gate, and it is necessary to pull off the road in the small space provided and open / close the gate ...(Read more)

An excellent house in a lovely area. We were very impressed with the grounds, the views, the very good quality and extent of kitchen equipment provided, the comfortable lounge and the convenience of the boot room, as we frequently arrived back covered in mud during the rather wet week. The ...(Read more)

We loved staying at Drift Cottage. This old pilot's cottage has been beautifully converted, with fantastic views - French windows in the lounge upstairs open onto a balcony overlooking the marina and Cattewater Harbour, where huge ships dock. With its own small beach and pontoon, the cottage is the ...(Read more)
