“Home from home”
Reviewed 20 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Such a lovely house, very well equipped with everything you could want. The furniture was very comfortable. The whole house was very clean. The grandchildren loved finding a toy cupboard in the kitchen.
It is well positioned for walking, a park, the town, railway station, swimming pool and beach, and so much more within a short drive.
Heather and Ed were both very welcoming and made us feel at home.

“The best place I've ever stayed in!”
Reviewed 21 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Spent 4 nights here, absolutely delighted with choice of accommodation. Everything you could need is provided in this property. Washer, dishwasher, tumble dryer, outdoor games, condiments and much more! Decor and quality of furniture and fittings is excellent. Definitely home from home feel and ideally located to visit the town and surrounding area.
Owner and family couldn't have been more helpful, met on arrival and showed round how everything worked. Can't wait to stay here again, only problem is with it being so popular we might not get in!!

“Beautiful Accommodation and Friendly Landlords”

This property is a warm, comfortable, relaxing and beautifully decorated holiday let; being much bigger than it appears in the details. There were 8 of us, 5 adults, 3 children and one dog, it was suitable for us all. It has all the home comforts of modern life. Near enough to the sea to walk although with small children a good rest before walking back is recommended. The park opposite is great for the children and dogs. Ed and Heather are lovely people who care about their guests and are on hand to help if needed. Well deserved recommendation.

The owners are lovely, nothing is too much trouble. the house is immaculate and the pictures just don't so it justice. The park opposite is great for the kids or if you have a dog and the walk to the beach or the centre is super ( head over the railway track path for a more scenic route) I would happily recommend this accommodation. The owners have put much care and attention in to all the little details. We really felt relaxed and the whole family enjoyed the stay. If we are ever in Devon again we would return.

We had a fabulous family holiday at " L`abri " Exmouth Devon, L`abri is a large 4 bedroom house 2 bathrooms and a cosy conservatory, there was bags of space for a family of 8 + two Jack Russells, it really was a "home from home"....just a 10 minute stroll from the town centre and main beach...across the road from the house is a park which was very handy to let the dogs run loose...If anybody is looking for a nice place to stay in Devon, then you will not be disappointed at the L`ABRI in Exmouth....

We were all made extremely welcome by the owners. The house is just beautiful! Very well appointed and lovely décor. Loved the conservatory and all the little extra touches such as tea and coffee and condiments in the cupboard and balls and kites and board games for the children. Plenty of books to read as well. Free WiFi greatly appreciated. Made good use of all the other information provided. Had a thoroughly good time with no problems and would love to return one day. There were 8 of us plus the dog. Plenty of space for all and a decked outside area good for a barbeque which we made good use of.
