“stay here...it's really great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I went to Exmouth on a Tennis Tour with friends from the Tennis Club and decided to make a week of it with my wife and 2 boys (13 & 10). we booked somewhat blindly although noticed that the general reviews of Pilot Cottage were pretty good. what nobody mentioned was just HOW superb the cottage was - location is ubeatable, right by the Esplanade with a lovely (short) walk along the seafront to the lifeguarded beach, literally just round the corner from the Grove Pub which was pretty good (with a few failings which i will review separately) and only 2 minute stroll to the Town Centre. The cottage was scrupulously clean and very well equipped. the lovely owner (Alfred) had even left coffee, tea, a bottle of milk and a bottle of wine! (nice man).
The beds were comfortable and the cottage was spacious and well laid out. The decor is somewhat aimed at the "more mature" traveller but if you don't mind staying in your granny's house you won't mind staying here either. the extra double added bonus was the off road parking space that is right outside your own front door. all in all i couldn't recommend this cottage highly enough.

“Great accommodation in great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stay at Pilot Cottage every year. It is in a perfect location, close to both the seafront and town centre. Local pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance. Good accommodation, good well-equipped kitchen, allocated parking space; everything you could need.

Comfortable and warm accommodation seconds from the sea. Well equipped kitchen, nice lounge comfortable bedrooms and good size bathroom with a fantastic shower! Very central and great access to public transport. Perfect for walking and accessing the beach. Perfect for many age groups to have a great holiday.

“All the comforts of home and the seaside on your doorstep.”

From the two car space parking on the doorstep to the bright and sunny kitchen Pilot Cottage lived up to our expectations. The cottage is very well equipped throughout, with even a wheel chair to borrow if you require one. Just ask the owners, who really have, we think, thought of everything.
There is now a new double bed which is firm and very comfortable.
We found having the town a short walk away, and the seafront, harbour and marina just across the road, an added bonus for the family members who could not walk too far.
One point made by the fisherman in our party was that the freezer was big enough to keep any fish caught until you go home.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and look forward to coming back.
