  • "Very clean, comfortable and tidy cottage with all utilities."

    Very quiet area, but locals are friendly- Upotter is a lovely village next to Rawridge.. Easy to get to main attractions in Devon, via Honiton in most cases. Honiton is a delightful old town, but there are supermarkets too. Good roads from there to the West including Dartmoor. Owners are friendly. Privacy assured. Recommended.

  • "Our first visit to this lovely Cottage."

    Everything you need and more, really comfortable and cosy and we enjoyed the log fire especially as we had some cool evenings. Thank you so much to our hosts and the welcoming gifts were a nice touch. We were able to revisit places on the Jurassic coast - Sidmouth, Seaton, Budleigh Salterton and Exmouth which are all within an easy drive. We hope to return to this beautiful place.

  • "We had a very relaxing week in Rose Cottage."

    We found the cottage very welcoming, clean, warm and comfortable, with everything we needed. We loved that Bella had her own bit of enclosed garden to sniff to her hearts content! The instructions to find the cottage were easy to follow. There are lots of nice places to visit within easy distance for our electric car. Plenty of places to charge too. Maybe on site charging would be good too? Many thanks

  • "A lovely, well appointed and very clean cottage."

    We had everything we needed for a restful few days. The cottage has a pretty garden for guest use. It’s ideally located on a quiet road between two small villages (one with a good local pub that serves food). Honiton is a ten minute drive with good small shops, various beach resorts within 30 minutes.

  • "Lovely cottage in a sleepy location."

    We traveled most days to the cosst to walk the SW coast path which was easy to get to. An easy walk also to the next village to the Sidmouth Arms which had great local beers and decent food. The cottage is cosy and comfortable. The owners being next door are always at hand if needed but leave you to do your thing. All in all a great stay.

    Suitable for a couple. So cosy and very much a home from home feel about it. The little garden is beautiful but sadly due to the weather we didn’t access it as much as we may have done. The owners are really nice too and nothing is too much trouble.

  • "This cottage was superb a little gem to be honest,very clean and tidy and had everything you would need."

    The bed was so comfy and the power shower was the best we'd had in any accommodation we had stayed in. Location wise the property is really good so handy to get to nearby resorts and towns and the village where it's located in very nice too with a decent pub only 1/2 mile walk away. The cottage garden is in front of the cottage with super views and birds galore to keep you entertained whilst they feed. The owners who were very welcoming do live next door and welcome you on arrival but after that you don't hear or see them unless you need anything and they are just a door knock away. I would definitely recommend this cottage for a couple with a dog.

    Just what we needed and the weather was glorious. Rose Cottage is fabulous, lovely hosts who provided a superb place to stay with extra treats to make you and your pet welcome and advice/help if you need it. The cottage itself is tasteful, comfortable very well equipped and in a superb location near to beaches, woods, walks, interesting towns. The sofa and bed is perfect as is the shower and the very lovely garden with several places to sit and relax and enjoy the great views.What more could you ask for?! Highly recommend. Thank you

    . immaculate cottage. Everything you could want and more. Private even though attached to the owner .. we only saw them once when we picked up the keys but knew they were there for anything .. including more logs for the wood burner. Spotlessly clean. Fresh flowers, dog bowls and towels, biscuits and beer left for us on arrival. Couldnt have asked for more.

  • "We've stayed in alot of cottages and this is one of the best so far."

    It's beautifully laid out and equipped and wasn't lacking for anything at all where other cottages are often a bit lean on things like utensils and crockery. Although it's next to the owners' house, it is very private and has a lovely view from the living room/sofa out to its own garden (lovely to watch the birds on the feeder) and the fields beyond, as well as a little patio and chairs that you will see in the photos. And a handsome view from the skylight in the bedroom. Wonderful big fireplace and wood burning stove for cooler evenings. You can walk from the cottage and there are also lots of lovely walks within a short car ride of the property. Charles and Patsy were discreet whilst being very helpful when asked for anything. It's on a road but there is very little traffic and the bedroom faces the fields. Only one thing I found was that the kingsized bed was somewhat unforgiving though this could be solved with a mattress topper.

    The cottage in Rawridge was beautiful, picture book perfect outside with a pretty garden and was so stylish and comfortable with plenty of space for the two of us and Katy the dog. I love that we can take her to so many of the helpful holiday cottages and each one is the same excellent standard as the properties who prefer not to accommodate dogs.

  • "This is, without a doubt, the nicest and most comfortable cottage I have ever rented (not always through Sykes) in over 40 years of holiday cottages."

    It was set in a quiet hamlet, and was comfortable, clean and appealing, very well equipped, and with easy parking. The towns and villages of the south coast were within comfortable driving distance along with plenty of other attractions: great for anyone looking for retail therapy but also set within beautiful countryside with much to explore. The owners were unobtrusive but friendly - if it hadn’t been for the very rainy weather, this would have been the perfect away-from-it-all break!

The property

On the edge of the hamlet of Rawridge, attached to the owners’ house, is this comfortable cottage created from a byre.

Perhaps you are planning a romantic trip for two, or a peaceful getaway.

If so then this is the place to be.

French windows open into a stylish and well-thought out open-plan living/dining/kitchen, centred by an inglenook fireplace housing a woodburning stove.

Exposed whitewashed beams and low lighting create a lovely place to settle down on the sofa, or to enjoy a romantic dinner for two.

A modern well-equipped kitchen lies at the back of the layout, adding to the warm, homely feel of the accommodation.

Oak stairs lead up to a double bedroom under the eaves with sloping ceiling and skylight windows projecting lovely views, and a smart shower-room suite.

Wake up to the beautiful interior, then enjoy a cup of tea outside in the small paved and enclosed sitting-out area, with wonderful scenery across the valley.

A comfortable and very welcoming base from which to explore this beautiful area of east Devon and the Jurassic Coast.
