Tales of the unexpected.

  • 5 of 5

I didn’t expect, under floor heating and a wood burner.

I was surprised by the peace and quiet here.

It isn’t far from the airport or Exeter city and yet the main sound is bird song.

There is no light pollution. What a delight!

On clear nights I rugged up and sat outside and enjoyed the stars.

If you are looking for a private cottage with a hot tub, in the country, then this is the place for you.

From Lime Cottage you can explore the Devon coast.

I went to Budliegh Salterton one day and Lyme Regis the next.

I visited Topsham and Exmouth as well.

I will stay here again.

Rekindle yourself in Lime Cottage.

The perfect getaway !

  • 5 of 5

We chose Lime cottage for our wedding anniversary and it lived up to all expectations (and more). The cottage has got loads of character and is very cosy. Not only was there underfloor heating (great to walk around without shoes) but also a lovely wood burning stove. Lime cottage is very well equipped and outside has the bonus of a private jacuzzi where we sipped the odd glass of champagne during the late evening ! Lots to do locally - Topsham and Exeter are close by and great walks at Budleigh Salterton. The owner made us feel very welcome. Will definitely be back !!!
