Beautiful and peacfull
We spent a week here and would recommend to all. The cottage is amazing. Very clean and comfortable. Loved the scenery and the location.
Plenty of places to visit within easy reach.
Sue and Adam are very helpful and on hand at all times if needed.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We're really happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and liked the cottage. It was lovely to meet you both and we hope to welcome you back sometime.
Delightful, informal and heavenly, in a quiet valley, yet close to Dawlish. The picture says it all.
We found it a wonderful holiday. So quiet and peaceful, you would think you were miles from anywhere, and yet Dawlish is only a mile away. Sitting in the conservatory or on the terrace or walking the lovely 2 acres of grounds is a delight, and an absolutely perfect antidote to the stresses and cares of life, yet Sue and Adam are unobtrusively on hand if needed. Fabulous location for exploring, and everyone seems very friendly in the area - and they greet you at the cottage with a cream tea! Heaven!! We'll be back, you can be sure of that!
Thank you for your wonderful review Pat and Jenny. We really enjoyed chatting with you both, you were great guests! Thank you for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy. We look forward to seeing you both again soon!
A cosy little retreat from the busy world with fantastic views, wildlife and starlit night skies.
A very clean and cosy cottage in a quiet rural location located on a very narrow country lane. The cottage is small, but has all the basics for a quiet stay and was very clean. The only criticism would be that there is no TV, radio or CD player. Any one of these would have been nice to have for an evening in. That said, most of our time was spent exploring Dawlish and Teignmouth, and the cottage is well located for both. It's a 25 minute walk into the centre of Dawlish where there are good public transport connections, or a 5 minute drive if you want to take on the narrow lane into the town (not that bad as long as you stick to 20 m.p.h.). The hosts Sue and Adam could not have been more helpful and were there if needed, but never imposed themselves. The peace and tranquility of the location are the cottage's real plus points, and you can really relax there. It was lovely to sit in the conservatory with a glass of wine on an evening and enjoy reading a book with only birdsong as background noise, so maybe there is something to be said for not having a telly!
Dawlish has everything you need in terms of supplies and the pubs are pretty good too. The locals are friendly and it's a pleasant surprise to pass a total stranger on a street and be greeted with a friendly "Good Morning" or "Afternoon". Gay's Creamery is well worth a visit, but don't be surprised if you end up in there for much longer than you expected, and try the slices of pie - they are something else! One note of caution - if you're out for a beer and don't fancy the walk home, the local taxi service (Kemp's Cars) can be a bit pricey - we were charged £9.00 for the 1.3 mile trip from Dawlish centre to the cottage. It was a Sunday night, so I guess the fares go up then, but £9.00 for a five minute journey seemed a bit over the top. That aside, it was a lovely week we had and we'd certainly stay again (but maybe we'd bring a CD player or a tablet along this time.....)
Beautiful setting, very convenient, nice helpful owners, accommodation fairly basic.
We loved the location in a very peaceful spot, it was lovely and quiet and relaxing to come back to every evening, and to wake up surrounded by greenery. Sue and Adam were most pleasant and helpful.
However, we did find the bathroom a bit cramped, and the main sitting/dining area (the conservatory) not all that comfortable. We could have done with a nice comfy sofa and armchair - you can't really lounge on a futon. The bedroom was nice and big and the bed very comfortable.
The great Escape
Lovely peaceful, rural environment.
Thank you Rosemary. We're so glad you both enjoyed your stay.

Thank you for your feedback Roy. Good to hear you found the welcome friendly, enjoyed the location and found the bed to be good too.
We were very sad to hear that you saw a number of issues with the property. We recognise that in a previous employment you were trained to spot potential hazards and we thank you for raising these items that you saw to be issues and we will take this information into consideration as part of our next refurbishment.
With regards to “cast off equipment… no TV” again we were sad to hear that you felt this way. We have taken great care with our accommodation listing to ensure the photos and description give an honest representation of the property for a reasonable and fair nightly rate. We were sorry to hear that you felt this wasn’t the case.
It takes around 45 minutes to walk the two miles into Dawlish along pretty country lanes. We've had a number of guests who have happily relied on public transport during their stay.
The cottage is two miles from Dawlish Train Station with fast regular trains available to Exeter and London. There are bikes available for rent in Dawlish.
As the cottage is only 10 minutes’ drive from the A38 / A380 and 15 mins to the M5 it makes a great base to explore the South West.
