From booking in to booking out and notification of receiving damage deposit back, this booking could not have gone any better! The cottage was amazing. We were there with friends from South Africa attending their son's Royal Marine passing out parade (my Godson). It was a great day! This was encompassed by the generally fabulous time we had altogether staying in this wonderful chocolate box cottage! The weather was great so we sat in the lovely garden and toasted our Royal Marine's success. We had a few birthdays and a graduation into Emirates as an airhostess to boot!
Gary loves to cook and Jane (the owner) directed us to the best places to shop for food. The kitchen was very well equipped ... great knives Jane! The cottage contains everything you need for a couple or a party. The word I would use is "quirky" - we loved it! We had numerous reasons to contact Jane before our stay and each time, she was receptive and kind. Her turn round on emails was fast and very helpful. The village of Woodbury is beautiful and the neighbours are kind and friendly. We especially loved the "vegetable grower" as he became known, next door - especially his singing. Public transport is easily accessible and taxis are cheap into Exmouth and Exeter if you don't have a car. Our friends used the bus for site seeing whilst we went off for coastal walks. Well done Jane! It's a great place you have. We will be back indeed. Lee

“A gem of a property”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed recently at Little Thatch for a second time. The location is idyllic , opposite a lovely green and beautiful church. We visited the Maltsters Arms for dinner on the first night which was excellent and literally less than 1 minute walk from the cottage. The cottage itself was really well equipped, clean, cosy and the owners had thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable. Beaches around the area were stunning, basically everything on your doorstep. Topsham definitely worth a visit, in fact we spent most of the day there as we were lucky with the weather and sat outside some lovely quaint pubs and coffee shops. Can't wait to book again in the autumn if there's space for us !

“A really quaint cottage with everything provided and in a most convenient location.”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A lovely cottage in a great location. Really enjoyed it. We had two older children with us (18 and 20) plus two dogs and had plenty of room. It really is a "Tardis" and seems far bigger inside than it looks from the outside. I would stay there again; we really enjoyed it.

“Perfect for a weekend with friends.”
Reviewed 10 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The cottage was in a great location in the middle of the village opposite the village green. There were 2 pubs, both only a 2 minute walk away which were great and some lovely vintage shops. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend away including towels.
Although there was no parking at the cottage this was not a problem as we were able to park very close by each time we returned.

“Another fantastic few days”
Reviewed 26 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This is our second visit to this lovely little cottage in a delightful village and found it just as nice as the first. The cottage is in a great central spot for exploring the surrounding areas and its beautiful countryside. We spend 4 nights here walking on the near by common, beaches and Otterton. We had a thoroughly relaxing time and the dog was spoilt for choice with all the different walks that she went on. The villagers are all friendly and are happy to help with any directions. Thank you again Jane and Rich for a lovely few days
