“Sweet cottage that ticked all the boxes”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Great little cottage which had all we needed for our family 4 adults and 9month baby. Stephen was very helpful and was keen to make our stay enjoyable. Would recommend only tricky thing was having 2 cars as parking was a slight problem.

Thank you for your review, pleased you all enjoyed your week at the cottage, sorry you had a slight problem with the parking, not something that has ever been mentioned over the years. Normally only one other car parks there and it is possible to park 4, I guess having the 2 cars can make it trickier.

“Perfect Devon Retreat”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We've recently returned from a beautiful stay in Sidmouth and Sidbury. I know the area well.

The cottage is a cosy 2 bed with bags of character. We had everything we needed and more, it was the perfect place for us to stay with our one year old daughter while we spent the days visiting family and friends.

The cottage is set down a lovely quiet country road in Sidbury opposite a lovely stream and fields. It features a lovely gas fire, comfortable rooms and bedding.

Just what we needed.

Steve the owner was also thorough in his welcome email and on hand if we needed him.

Thank you!

“Lovely cottage in a chocolate box village”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Everything you would need was supplied. the cottage was very quant and well equipped.
The little village had a shop if needed. Just a pity the local pub had stopped doing food but there were others within easy driving distance.
Very well situated for visiting the Dorset coast and also the south devon coast.

Thank you for reviewing Topaz cottage, we understand that the pub will be serving food again within the next 2 weeks, as you say many good pubs serving good food within a 10 minute drive, or even use the brilliant bus service.

Thank you, we are very pleased you enjoyed your break and are tempted to return, next year will see a new bathroom and other improvements that will make a break at Topaz even better, and remember there is a good discount for returning guests even though prices are very reasonable already.

We were really pleasantly surprised by the beautiful surroundings of this lovely countryside cottage. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and well furnished. Thoughtful provisions had been made and we felt at home straight away. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage for a relaxing and comfortable holiday.

Thank you for your review, many guests are surprised at how beautiful the cottage and surroundings are as it is difficult to put into words through the description of the cottage, you only get to appreciate how wonderful the cottage is by staying there.

Thank you for your review, describes the cottage very well. The parking is on road as described on the web site with plenty of space on the quiet lane for normal family cars. 4x4's or such like are OK but can be a tight squeeze for the bin lorry.
