Wonderful accommodation... great location.
Gorgeous cottage... immaculate and well furnished. Lovely attention to detail to cater for all needs. Would definitely stay again.5 stars Nikki and Rob!
A really happy week
We had a great week at the cottage. The equipment throughout was exactly what one would hope for. The only regret is that we didn't have time to investigate the pub.
Really relaxing break in a gorgeous little cottage in a sleepy village - with a pub opposite!
5 of us had a 4 night break here over Easter. The cottage is well equipped and all mod cons provided. The back looks on to open fields and gardens. Having 2 full bathrooms was a real plus with 5 adults. Kitchen is well equipped and laid out and if the weather had been better we would have sat on the decking by the stream. Sadly the weather was bad, so only managed a couple of walks from the house. The Golden Lion is a must and the food was excellent. Parking was OK but having 2 cars wasn't easy to juggle with residents but we managed. Open fire was welcome as it was cold at Easter, but the cottage was well heated. Hosts were very helpful and lots of local tourist information too. If there was anything slightly negative was the lounge is quite small for 6 people but we coped. Great place to stay and lovely area to explore locally. Many thanks.
A great cottage in a lovely part of the country.
This was our second visit and it didn’t disappoint. The cottage is comfortable, well equipped and has a lovely new kitchen. It is a fantastic spot for visiting the stunning scenery in the surrounding area. As an added bonus the sun has been out all week!
We are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your second stay with us.
Hope you are able to stay with us again.

2 Stanley Cottage, Tipton St John
The cottage is a beautifully presented, comfortable, cosy, and well equipped property. It is situated in the heart of the village and is within a stone's throw from the local pub, the Golden Lion which serves good food. It also is surrounded by stunning countryside, and lovely walks which are virtually on its doorstep. We would happily stay again as it felt like home from home. Lina and Alan, Hampshire
Lovely warm comfortable cottage
Very clean, well equipped comfortable cottage. You're guaranteed a good night's sleep in quality beds and bedding. Good little pub right on your doorstep and Sidmouth just down the road.
