Great location for a relaxing stay on teh East Devon Coast
Perfect for two guests wanting a relaxing stay in a rural location and with easy access to the east devon coast including Exmouth, Sidmouth, Beer, Budleigh Salterton etc. Stylish converted piggery with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Great cycling area with lots of car free lanes. Lovely hosts and cant beat milk and wine in the fridge on arrival!
A lovely place to stay
I'll admit that I did get lost trying to find it but once I was there, it was easy to find again. The place was immaculate when I arrived, with information, guides, maps etc. laid out for me and a nice cold bottle of wine in the fridge. Jill has placed little notes around the place so you know what every switch etc. does and everything I could need was there, especially as I arrived late on Sunday when all the shops were closed!
The cottage is decorated beautifully, with a modern feel. The kitchen is well appointed and the bathroom was amazing, with a huge walk-in shower.
A perfect place for exploring the area or just chilling on the deck after a long day walking!
Relaxing stay away from it all.
