“Still as lovely as ever.”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This was not our 1st. stay at Pilot Cottage.
It's still as lovely as it ever was and the hosts just as welcoming.
We even had access to a wheel chair for one of our party which was a great asset and meant we didn't have to transport our own.
Exmouth is still growing around the harbourand makes interesting walks to see the different designs and layout of the new properties. (Oh to win the Lottery !!!).
Thanks again to Pat and Alfred for a wonderful stay.

“A wonderful place to relax!”

We have just returned from this cottage,much to our regret we had to let someone else have their turn!
It's right on the seafront with fantastic views for walking and the town was just a few mins away as we'll, so best of both.
Alfred was very welcoming and kind enough to even refund us when our numbers shrank from 4 to 2, which we really weren't expecting.
The cottage is a delight with a fantastic kitchen fully equipped with everything you can wish for, the bathroom is modern and clean and a huge wonderful shower .
We wouldn't hesitate to return here the next time we are in the area and it's so much nicer to have a home rather than a hotel.

“Exceptional”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Pilot Cottage. The cottage is very comfortable with all mod cons and has everything you require for a really relaxing holiday. Being literally just over the road from the beach, the cottage is ideally situated for pleasant strolls along the esplanade or for trips further afield

“stay here...it's really great!”
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”
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.
