  • "A very comfortable and quiet cottage with lovely views, although near to all amenities."

    We were made to feel very welcome and the owners had provided everything you could need. The beds were very comfortable and the showers powerful. Perhaps more than one shower mat could be provided to stop any slipping. We loved our stay here and would love to return.

  • "We were very happy with the overall quality of this cottage."

    Kitchen and equipment all very good and a really good location for visiting the area. Heating was very effective and house warmed up quickly. The mattress was one of the most comfortable we have ever had in a holiday cottage, very good indeed. The current description does not reflect everything completely accurately. It is not possible to walk to Greendale farm shop as it is on a main road. Pub is walkable. Also description still says selection of books games and dvds which are not present presumably because of covid restrictions.

    Thank you for your feedback. We were pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Upham View. You are right the games etc were removed due to Covid. We look forward, hopefully to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "Upham View is a modern extremely well-fitted property (with delightful owners next door)."

    It lies down a quiet country lane, yet is extremely accessible to all the hustle and bustle of Exeter, the estuary and hence the beaches as far as Sidmouth.

  • "The Facilities are second to none."

    Cleanliness second to none. Perfect views across the Devonshire Countryside. We did enjoy the feeling of home from home that this property gave us. Lots of nice pubs, we especially like that after all this time in Lock down. The Cat and Fiddle do a nice British home carvery about 2 miles from the property towards Exeter. Loved the sheep and horse and the sky at night away from light pollution. The owners are very obliging I slipped in the shower and they got me a shower mat. All the facilities are finished to a very high standard with a really nice modern kitchen. We are planning on a return next year.

  • "Almost want to say nothing in case others find it ."

    ....but this has been a fantastic find. This is one of the most peaceful holidays we have ever had. The property is superb, the surroundings exquisite, it oozes quality and the owners are great people. The views across the fields and into the distant landscape are to not just see but to FEEL!! Access to 'the high life' (if you want it??) is easy, but it remains a secluded piece of our heaven. Already booked to go back next year. To the owners - thank you for making this such a great place and sharing it with us, even though for just a few days.

    It was a real pleasure to stay at Upham View. The view is of course amazing, but it was more than that, Spotlessly clean, comfortable, warm and very well equipped, and ideally placed to explore the area.
