    Very clean. Only improvement I can think of would be a hook on the back of the bedroom door.

  • "The cottage was very clean and comfortable and tastefully decorated."

    the car parking space was good and off road out of sight. Not really dog friendly as there was no enclosed space to allow a dog to roam in safety Outside seating was adjacent to the area designated for car parking and not suitable to relax in.

    It needed restarting but I can imagine some guests would have been frustrated by it. I had no telephone signal throughout the week, on EE. Fortunately it worked ok on the virgin network. Otherwise, we had everything we needed. Parking was easy. Bed was comfortable. Shower was great. Nice and airy living space. Dishwasher and tables were provided. There was also a washing machine. Easy access the the beaches by car. People were friendly. Nice stay.

  • "Beautiful cottage."

    Perfect for the two of us and a perfect cottage in this recent heatwave - bedroom downstairs was so lovely and cool. - it got a bit warm upstairs but you’d expect that in this unprecedented weather and it just meant we preferred to go out to eat at the Kingfisher Pub which was lovely, welcoming, good food and only a few steps away!! Only thing I’d suggest in the property is a pair of oven gloves and maybe more than 5 hangers - (we needed a few more for the two of us) Overall a lovely holiday in a lovely village - and the tram was the icing on the cake

    Fortunately Tesco was close by and I bought one. Cottage clean although crockery not checked as I found mashed potato on the masher (photo was taken) We were asked to clean cottage and leave as found but cleaning appliances not up to scratch considering pet allowance. Improvements needed

  • "The bathroom has mould on the tiles, and it looks like something is growing on the plastic of the shower screen."

    For security reasons we did not leave windows open when we went out. The walls must be very thin - as we could hear our neighbours - their TV, microwave and the thing that use to make me jump is when they turned on the water tap when we were in bed, it was quite loud. I assume they could hear us as well. And being really picky - the bedroom drawers need to be waxed so they can run smoothly and be less noisy, especially if you needed to open a drawer in the night. The cottage had a lovely feel, it had everything we wanted, it was in a great location and we really enjoyed our stay.

    The only downside was no garden should you want one but we knew this before booking. Bed extremely comfy and the fluffiest towels I’ve ever had on holiday. Colyton itself a lovely little town with plenty of history.

  • "Absoloutely no garden area where my dog could be safely let off the lead."

    The outdoor space advertised is misleading with a table and 2 chairs plonked outside the front door. Food was left in the cupboards and found a San Miguel bottle caps left on the side. All in all the cottage is cosy with the odd cobweb, its a nice little village and the neighbours were friendly.

    Chairs and a little table are provided but only the car park and at the moment a builders yard are of sufficient size to accomodate them .There is nowhere even when the builders are finished to have outside seatings. I really do not want to look at a car park while relaxing.

  • "I was disappointed that there was no garden area where my dog could safely be let off the lead."

    We went for toilet walks. The information provided by the cottage owners had no information about recycling rubbish and when refuse collections happen. Also there was no information about how the oven worked and the storage heaters needed studying to get them up and running. However the cottage was cosy and warm,everything worked and there was always plenty of hot water. We enjoyed exploring the village and the neighbours were friendly and helpful.

  • "The adjoining walls to the cottage next door must be exceptionally thin because we could hear every conversation, sneeze, snoring, etc."

    Also, the outdoor space advertised is misleading. A table and 2 chairs plonked in a car park which resembled a builders yard does not constitute outdoor space.
