    “We had the loveliest of holidays in Marlborough Cottage.”

    It couldn't have been cleaner, warmer, welcoming or more tastefully decorated and furnished. The Aga was a real treat, as was the fire, and the garden was a delight (even if it was too wet to really enjoy!). And I know this sounds a silly comment, but to find a well-stocked kitchen made such a refreshing and stress-free change the some of the places we've been to before - big thumbs up for sharp knives, sufficient pans and utensils, and big enough cooking pots for a family! The location is fabulous - so so remote and peaceful, yet 10 mins from Lyme Regis and a 15 mins from our friends in Sidmouth. Booking was easy (but we'd expect that, to be honest) but the following communications were thorough and clear from Sykes, and the personal welcome email from the owners was a really lovely touch. Many thanks for a lovely week in the middle of some really bleak times!

The property

On the edge of the tiny Devon village of Combpyne is beautiful, thatched, Grade II listed Marlborough Cottage.

Expertly finished throughout, you will enter the property through the thatched porch taking a step down to the stylish and contemporary kitchen is the real hub-of-the-house, warmed by a cosy Aga this is a great spot to sit and recount your days adventures.

In the sitting room with beams you'll find a gorgeous inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove and a pretty window seat.

Also down 2 steps on the ground floor is a bedroom/occasional living room with a king size double bed and French windows to the courtyard.

Up the steep stairs with a handrail and low head height you will enter the first floor.

On the first floor are two further double bedrooms, one with low beams, and one with an additional single bed.

Behind the cottage, is ¾ acre of garden with connecting spaces including a dining terrace ideal for watching the sunset with a glass of something delicious and paths through the rose beds up to a lawn, wooded garden, wildflower meadow and summerhouse.

There's also an external games shed with toys for young children.

Close to Combpyne, is the pretty fishing village of Beer.

Here you can sit by the harbour and watch waves break on the pebbly beach or browse the interesting shops and galleries.

There are lots of fascinating courses run locally at Hugh fearnley Whittingstall's famous River Cottage or fabulousTrill Farm.

There's a sandy beach at iconic Lyme Regis, or for a day's sightseeing, head to the historic city of Exeter with its cathedral, quay and family friendly attractions.

In a secluded yet accessible location, Marlborough Cottage is brilliant for couples or families.
