  • "This was our first experience of using Sykes cottages."

    We have never rented a cottage before. We were so pleased that it matched the picture and the description. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The people who own it live next door, and they were so welcoming. Exmouth had so much to offer and the surrounding area was really beautiful to explore. I would definitely book another cottage with Sykes.

    Although on a main road, it's location we rarely heard any traffic. The accommodation was comfortable and we had everything we needed. We were met on our first day by the owner who gave us an explanation regarding the property and local advice for the area. We enjoyed our holiday in spite of some mixed weather.

  • "We had a fantastic time at Peonies with great weather, which always helps."

    We had read reports about not being able to get at the cutlery draw due to the draw hitting the oven, but it is so easily overcome by just opening the oven door, no hardship in that respect. The owners greeted us upon arrival and made us feel very welcome and had a chat on the day of departure. There was a lovely outside area for sitting in the garden to catch the last moments of the sun before it set. The bed was the most comfortable one we had ever had and allowed a good nights sleep. The complimentary bottle of wine was much appreciated. We would hope that we would be able to go there again in the near future.

    Re facilities - Cutlery drawers are inaccessible due to position of oven and needs immediate attention (previously referred to by others in visitors' book) Shower cubical doors need repair to loose sealing strip Sykes post stay advice was not well received by us or our family

    Thank you for completing your feedback. We have discussed the points raised with the owner who confirms the shower seal has now been fixed, in relation to the cutlery drawer the owner explained prior to your arrival that the cutlery drawer had to be opened in a certain way and was saddened to read your comments suggesting immediate attention was needed to rectify this. Due to the compact design of the kitchen the cutlery drawer needs to be opened in a particular way. Property Owner

    The owners were friendly and helpful and though not very large the kitchen was well-equipped. Easy parking and although attached to the owner's house felt very private.

  • "It was a lovely house, the owners were so, extremely friendly and welcoming (there was a bunch of flowers and bottle of wine left by the last guests left on the driveway, which indicates that they also had a lovely stay too)."

    The house is in a great location, just a short 3-4 min drive to the main town with shops and lovely restaurants around and to walk it would have taken around 30mins. Gorgeous garden too which is very clearly well taken care of. I would definitely recommend it for any age visitor.

  • "I think that what most impressed me was the thoughtful way they had equipped the cottage."

    There were shelves where you needed them, lamps placed just right, lots of hooks, a chair in the porch for changing your shoes - all those little things that actually make your holiday more enjoyable. Hedley and Megan were friendly and helpful but unobtrusive so we were able to relax in our adjacent garden area and just feel comfortable. We were unsure about the location but the walk into town only took 25-30 minutes, or a ten minute walk to a bus stop, with buses every 15 minutes during the day. And the walk along the Exe estuary was excellent - don't miss it!

The property

This smart ground floor apartment is situated on the edge of Exmouth.

Attached privately to the friendly owners’ bungalow, it is excellent accommodation for a couple to explore the area.

Your own gate leads down a path and steps to the porch into the neat sitting room with cosy electric fire and dining area.

The galley kitchen is an efficient space in which to prepare meals.

After busy days, you will sleep well in the double bedroom with pretty furnishings and a glimpse of the sea.

On sunny days, sit out in your sheltered terraced garden behind, complete with outdoor furniture.

The apartment is just half a mile walk from National Trust A la Ronde and just over a mile from the estuary with its cycle trail for walking or cycling.

The lovely seafront is about two miles away, where you can stroll, swim and enjoy all the traditional seaside fun.

For more activities, there are opportunities for sailing, windsurfing, bird watching and golf.

You can take the ferry to Starcross or explore the cathedral city of Exeter.

With so much to do and see in the area, Peonies is a splendid base all on one level.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Exeter 11.5 miles.

On the eastern bank of the estuary of the River Exe, Exmouth has everything required by the visitor for a relaxing break. A thriving coastal town with a nationally renowned bird sanctuary, close to miles of sandy beaches, superb coastal walking, with everything for the fisherman and sailor, close to Exeter and with much to do and see - this all contributes to the town’s attraction. In addition to messing about on boats, lazing on the beach or taking the ferry up the estuary or to Dawlish Warren nature reserve, there’s always Crealy Park theme park, Bicton Park stately home and gardens, the Donkey Sanctuary at nearby Sidmouth, Woodbury Common, the cathedral city of Exeter, the Sandy Bay World of Country Life and the all absorbing Jurassic Coast with its famous fossil deposits stretching eastwards into Dorset. In terms of visitor attractions and coastal lifestyle you won’t find much better than Exmouth.

Note: This property does not accept children, except babes in arms.
