“Simply Perfect 5*”

This is the perfect place to stay to explore this beautiful part of Devon and surrounding areas. We selected this property primarily because of the look and description on holiday lettings. Gut feeling suggested it was of good quality at a reasonable price so decided to book it. Our expectations were surpassed. The owners have the price to quality ratio just about spot on (despite the usual school holiday hike). It is refreshing to find a property owner that has gone that little extra in trying to ensure that your every comfort is catered for with what is best described as a high level of attention to detail. Sometimes you often it find it nice to go home and use your own decent cooking equipment or enjoy your own bedding but we had no issues here. The kitchen was furnished with accessories to a high standard (no cheap flimsy pans) and an excellent quality oven. The bedding provided feels like a medium/high quality cotton set which provides an excellent level of comfort. Everything else in and around the rooms is well thought out and fits nicely, in keeping with the property.

The lounge has 2 good quality, comfy sofas, log burning stove which looks perfect for winter, tv with speakers and an I pod docking station (in the home cinema system). The wii was also welcome on a rainy morning!

The property itself is well proportioned and spacious for the 2 of us. It would easily accommodate a family of 4 or 5 (depends on what space you look for). It has a good sized, well maintained garden with secluded outside seating area, next to the conservatory. The weather meant we couldn’t take advantage of this but I should imagine it would provide an excellent additional area to use.

The owners of the property are friendly, professional and keen to help you get the most from your stay. Nothing is too much trouble and we found them to be flexible and very accommodating. The homemade cookies were simply delicious and a lovely welcoming touch.

The property is located in a quaint little village and is the ideal base to explore the coastal parts, west to Exmoor national park and north into Somerset. There are plenty of decent pub/restaurant places for lunch or dinner so you shouldn’t be disappointed when it comes to this either.

There is a Tesco and Waitrose close by but we found the new Tesco in Seaton to be a better place to stock up on goods (nicer than the Honiton store) so again you should have no problems in this regard.

In summary the owners are extremely friendly, professional with great attention to detail. It is a combination we appreciate and would visit again without a shadow of a doubt. We can only speak positively about this property and their owners We could not really wish for a better place to stay. If you book this accommodation, you will not be disappointed. Simply the best in Devon. Enjoy!
