“Fantastic holiday home”
Reviewed 16 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This cottage is fantastic; clean, very comfortable and very well equipped. It is ideally placed to enjoy the village and the surrounding attractions. This is our fourth visit to Axmouth and the Old Post Office is by far the best property we have stayed in. We visited with three teenagers and the house suited all our needs wonderfully. We will definitely remember our week in the cottage for quite some time to come.

“Lovely cottage in a quiet location, a superb base for exploring the Jurassic coast”
Reviewed 12 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The cottage was a good size for our family of 6 and a real bonus to have a private outdoor space (even in April!). Nicely renovated cottage retaining period features and nice well equipped kitchen and modern bathroom.
Just a few minutes drive from Lyme Regis and a pleasant stroll down into river. We'll make a point of returning. Thanks letting us stay!

“Really lovely cottage”
Reviewed 18 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The Old Post Office is right in the heart of Axmouth which is a lovely friendly village just outside Seaton. It has everything you need to make you feel at home, including underfloor heating and a lovely south facing fully enclosed garden. The owner has thought of everything you may possibly need on your week away and was particularly flexible when we had to change our dates. We hesitated to recommend this cottage in case it gets so popular that we can't book a return visit!

“Great Christmas holidays in a warm and welcoming cottage.”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We rented the cottage for our Christmas holidays. The five of us (plus dog) were very comfortable, plenty of room for everyone and a very well appointed kitchen with everything needed to prepare our Christmas dinner. The cottage is very well renovated and nicely furnished and decorated. It is actually bigger than it looks on the pictures.
It's a great location too, in a quiet street, but very near two lively pubs, and just a few minutes from the shops and beach front in Seaton.
We often spend holidays in the area and we will certainly rent this cottage again.

A warm thanks to our French guests.
So glad that you enjoyed Christmas at the cottage. Axmouth and the surrounding area is certainly perfect for a winter break as much as in the summer.
we hope that you can come again.
Happy New year from Richard and Julie.

“Lovely cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 1 December 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Beautiful comfy cottage, furnished to a very high modern standard. Very spacious, much bigger than we imagined, downstairs loo very handy. Very clean throughout. Lovely modern bathroom upstairs and a really good shower. Kitchen really well stocked with everything you need. Under floor heating was a real luxury. Free wifi is always a must these days, had no problem logging on. Garden was plenty big enough and a real suntrap.
Fantastic pubs nearby to eat and drink and were very welcoming to our dogs.
Really well positioned and a great base to visit lovely areas of South Devon.
Looking forward to our next visit!

“Beautiful Cottage”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The cottage is amazing with everything you could possible want, very comfortable, beautifully clean and finished to a high spec throughout. There were just the two of us but it would be perfect for a family too as it is very spacious, the garden was a lovely sunny spot in the evenings. I would highly recommend this cottage, good amenities, lovely walks and the harbour is a great place to sit and just relax.

Thank you Lynne. I must admit, we love it when it is just the two of us there, as it is peace and tranquillity!
However it's great for a group or family as well as there is so much to do and see..
Hope you can come and stay again.
