Fab location in a village we have stayed in for the last 11 years, with the rest of the family visiting for the last 25 years plus!!! Cottage is lovely and well equipped but the best feature has to be sitting outside the front door and just looking at the view!

Management response:

Thank you! So glad you had a good time. Yes, the view is amazing - just fields, sea and sky and no-one passing by.

We had a lovely week in this cottage that has the feel of a well-loved family holiday home. The location is wonderful. Walks from the cottage are amazing. Just sitting inside with the log fire burning looking out at the sea is pretty good too.

Management response:

Thanks Rowland and I'm so glad you had a good time. Sitting with the log fire burning looking at the sea is my favourite occupation too. Do come back soon!

We visited Foss cottage after staying in a nearby smaller cottage over many years so we knew what to expect from East Prawle and the fantastic views over the Channel and were not disappointed. A truly lovely place to relax, unwind and get away from the rat race. If you cant enjoy yourself without Wifi, TV, radio or phone signals,...
