“Great value for off-season break for the over 55's!”
Reviewed 9 September 2012 for a stay in November 2011

For the past ten years or so my wife Patricia and and I have made an out of season, usually November, trip to Exmouth, enjoying the quiet luxury of in independant stay at Pilot Cottage. Special rates for one couple, over 55 ( we sure are!!) in this part of the year make it possible for us to relax and enjoy the Exe estuary, Exmouth beaches, the coast along to Budleigh, excursions down to Plymouth etc, taking any rough weather in our stride. Mr and Mrs Woods are the most welcoming of owners, helpful when needed but otherwise invisble.

This is our second year in this property and we would have no hesitation in re-booking. The owners are very pleasant & welcoming

“Lovely stay”

Pilot. Cottage has a fantastic location with parking which is a real bonus in exmouth. Lovely kitchen and bathroom,although no bath, which was interesting for my 1 and 2 year old. We really liked the space as did our little ones, and despite the double bed being VERY soft, a bit uncomfortable, we have booked already again for next year.

We did appreciate being made aware that there was a problem with the double bed. Such feedback is invaluable and the offending bed has now been replaced.
