“Picture perfect relaxing luxury rural retreat”
Reviewed 18 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

What an amazing place to stay. You really are tucked away in beautiful, peaceful Devon countryside but still just a short drive from everything you could need. The lodge is spacious and all the furniture and beds are so so comfortable. The view is incredible and made all the more enjoyable when looking at it from the large hot tub! There is nothing I would change with the lodge and myself, my partner and 9 year old daughter all agree it was our best family holiday to date.

We shall definitely be returning as soon as we can......in fact I loved it so much I'm loathed to review it in case it becomes too popular for me to get booked in again!

“Perfect cottage in the country”
Reviewed 6 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Thoroughly recommend this wonderful cottage- amazing views and set in an ancient woodland filled with bluebells when we were there. Super comfortable beds and furniture makes all the difference! Really hope to come back soon. Thank you!

“Lovely cottage with spectacular views”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Had a lovely stay at Exeter cottage. Great cottage with everything provided - a real home from home. Secluded location which is great but at the same time, everywhere is easily accessible. The views from the lounge are second to none - we saw some spectacular sunrises and sunsets - beautiful. The spa was a fabulous bonus. All in all it was great.

“Wonderful stay in a wonderful cottage”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is a fabulous cottage set in a isolated setting, albeit relatively close to local attractions

The cottage itself is tastefully decorated and furnished. There are two bedrooms, a master one and another with bunk beds and a double beds. These were ideal for my two boys. The kitchen adjoins the living room and dining room. Outside is a huge garden and of course the lovely hot tub.

Altogether this was a great stay in a cottage ideal for a young family, in fact the owner even allowed us to take our puppy.

I can't praise the cottage and the owner enough.
