  • "A very well presented and equipped property with all the home comforts for a relaxing break."

    Ideal, quiet location for exploring the local area or venturing to Dartmoor by car. A 5 to 10 minute walk into Dawlish town with excellent train links to Exeter and Torquay.

  • "Every once in a while you find the perfect little Gem, Exe View is that perfect place!"

    Immaculately clean, comfortable with amazing views from the balcony. The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need for your stay, and I must say, that this is the first place we have stayed at, were you can take anything from any drawer, cupboards or worktop, find it perfectly clean, and use straight away! Lots of people say that we will be back, we found ourselves wishing we could just stay a little longer. Many thanks to both Sue and Andy. Robert and Elizabeth, Dauntsey, Wiltshire.

  • "We were absolutely delighted with our stay at Exe View."

    The owners were very helpful and we cannot recommend them and their property highly enough. However the same cannot be said of Sykes Cottages. We were unable to use the week we originally booked and found Sykes wouldn't refund or change accommodation. We were lucky that the owners and ourselves were able to change the week (the only one available). We found Sykes inflexible and won't use them again. But the accommodation - First Class !!
