Cosy cottage set in beautiful harbour village
We (Marianne + Chris) would love to share our beautiful cottage with you. This is our home throughout the year but in the summers we work away and feel that others should experience our lovely house and wonderful village.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Owner chose
We've spent the last 5 years renovating this cottage with traditional lime plasters and eco-paints. We've really invested in top-quality materials, wooden floors, slate kitchen tiles and expensive fittings.
What makes this Cottage unique
The property has a Swedish wood burner with free wood for those romantic nights. You can sit in bed in the morning, drinking tea and admiring the river view. You can also spend the evening watching our Smart TV with all the i-players & Netflix or curl up on our snuggled sofas and read a good book in peace. There is also our quaint fully-equipped kitchen to cook a fabulous meal if you don't want to dine out in the many restaurants in this area. The cottage has a lovely cosy warm atmosphere and you will feel at home here!

We were really impressed with Shrimp Cottage. Although compact it is really well arranged with everything you need. The standard of finish is exceptional and attention to detail is superb. There were thoughtful touches like phone chargers, toiletries and a selection of welcoming groceries. We would thoroughly recommend this property.
Many thanks for the amazing review Jonathan. We’re glad you had such a great time in Shrimp Cottage.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Superb lovely cottage
This cottage is everything you would want for a short break in Devon
Location is perfect. Easy 10 minute walk to Starcross or 20 minutes walk to Dawlish Warren. We got the ferry to Exmouth and the train back stopping at Limpstone and Topsham. The trains let you get on and off on your route. There is a pub nearby and the food is lovely we ate there two nights.
The arrival was easy and the hosts provided all sorts of extras small bottles of wine, cereal, biscuits and fresh flowers.
Lovely comfortable bed with great view of the estuary and Exmouth. Cosy living room warm with log burner and underfloor heating , great smart TV
Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a Devon stay
Thank you so much for the lovely review. It means a lot to us that you had such a wonderful time. Have a great summer!
All the best,
Chris & Marianne
Immaculate, comfortable and a brilliant use of space.
It was very clear that the owners had given a great deal of thought as to what guests might need to enhance their stay; we wanted for nothing. The location was good for us too, walks, cycle ride on the estuary and a visit to Exeter.
One question though, how did they manage to get the bath into the bathroom?!
A lovely bijou cottage
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shrimp. It's a lovely bijou cottage - perfect for two people. It was very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. It's in a great location with easy access to coastal walks, train journeys and ferry crossings. The information file provided was very useful as we hadn't visited the area before. We would definitely recommend staying at Shrimp.
The property is next to the River Exe Estuary - a bird conservation area. It is 15 minutes walk to the beach. There are two pubs in the village that serve great food. We are also on the Exe Estuary Trail - 21 miles of cycle / walking along both sides of the estuary. It's a fantastic area to visit.
