“Absolutely Lovely Cottage In A Perfect Location.”
Reviewed 28 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We have visited family many times in Exmouth over the years and stayed in a few accommodations but The Pilot Cottage has been the best to date.
The cottage is extremely clean,very homely,close to town and a stones throw from the beach.
I would totally recommend The Pilot Cottage to anyone visiting the area.

Thank-you Alfred hope to see you again later this year.

“Pilot Cottage, Exmouth for a traditional seaside holiday”
Reviewed 28 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Pilot Cottage has a large living room, a good size, eat-in kitchen and three comfortable bedrooms. We liked the large living room which gave space for everybody to do their own thing and the separate kitchen which is both large enough to eat in and is well provisioned with high quality equipment and utensils.
Pilot Cottage is quite close to the harbour and train station and is, therefore, convenient for taking boat trips, train journeys and walks along the Exe estuary while being only a short distance from the town centre and the beach.
I first came to Exmouth more than 17 years ago and like it both as a traditional seaside town and because there is a good variety of attractions within easy travelling distances. For nature lovers there are several estuarine and inland nature reserves and the surrounding countryside itself is, of course, very attractive.

“Great accommodation for Exmouth”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our 4th year staying at pilot cottage and we have already booked again for next year. Great amenities within the cottage with all essentials covered, with lovely kitchen and in an excellent location. Spacious lounge so that on the odd rainy day our two boys (5&6 yrs) have room to play without getting cabin fever!

“Excellent location and very well equipped cottage”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a very enjoyable stay at Pilot Cottage during a sunny half-term, when Exmouth was very busy. It was a great asset to have a parking space as one of our party had mobility difficulties, although we were very close to the sea and the town, so you don't need a car to have great access to Exmouth beaches and other attractions! (The cycling was great too - we took bikes!)
The cottage is in a very good position near the sea, although there was no sea-view (which we were told about beforehand.) It is very well equipped (particularly the kitchen and bathroom) and a lot of helpful extras are provided.
Pilot cottage suited us very well and I would recommend it particularly for a trip like ours where we took an elderly relative on holiday.

“Absolutely fitted the bill”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I booked Pilot cottage to take my very elderly father away for a week in Devon. It was a perfect venue, warm, comfortable, all facilities almost a home from home. Alfred and his wife were really helpful and friendly, offering pre holiday advice around hiring mobility scooters, on line shopping deliveries etc and suggestions on arrival of restaurants, facilities to try.
Would absolutely recommend Pilot cottage to anyone.
