    The swimming pool was a bonus and well used by us

  • "Super accommodation, a credit to the owners."

    The Coach House was spotlessly clean, very well appointed to a high standard and very comfortable. The owners were on hand if needed but not intrusive. It is in a great location for exploring south Devon. There are River Exe views from the house. The use of the pool was a real benefit. The welcome basket of local produce was a lovely touch and great to sit down to after a long journey. I would recommend the Coach House unreservedly to all; you won't be disappointed.

  • "The owners were very pleasant people and property was comfortable enough and adequate, as in it was clean although tired; one settee and the kitchen utensils particularly."

    Our biggest disappointment was the swimming pool, for which we booked this property. It was cold and had an ant infestation, the owner said that it would be 26.5C by the afternoon we arrived, nearing the 27C they keep it at, it did not feel anything like this temperature, we did not use the pool again, it was uncomfortable.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your stay. We appreciate your comments regarding the sette and kitchen utensils. We will also make sure that the issues with the pool are investigated and rectified for future guests. We hope tht the issues you experienced did not leave a lasting impact on your stay.

    Beds really comfortable. Single beds are so often skimped on, but the single in the second bedroom was super comfy. Beautiful location surrounded by fields with a river view upstairs and it’s so handy to Exeter, Topsham, Exmouth and Budleigh etc. A thoroughly enjoyable place to stay. Recommended.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. The scones sound delicious! We are very pleased you were comfortable and enjoyed the location. We hope we can welcome you back again. Best wishes HideAways Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely property that is comfortable and well-appointed with a good range of equipment and comfortable beds."

    The hosts are warm and welcoming and we appreciated the cream tea, and other items that they had provided for us. Unfortunately for us, our stay coincided with unannounced overnight silage cutting and collection in the fields immediately adjacent to the property meaning that we got a very disturbed night’s sleep on one night and we decided to come home early -leaving at midnight -when the considerable noise was repeated on a second night. The property owners are blameless and were unable to persuade the farmer to desist but we are bound to say that the experience spoilt what would have otherwise been a most enjoyable stay in a beautiful and (normally!) quiet location. We hope the owners are able to reach some accommodation with the farmer so that future guests may enjoy their stay in peace.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We’re pleased that you found The Coach House to be comfortable and the hosts so welcoming but sorry to hear that you experienced noise disruption from the adjacent fields during your stay. The owners have explained to us that The Coach House, being surrounded by farmland, reflects both the tranquillity of the beautiful Devon countryside and the activity of normal farming practices, dependent on the seasons and the weather. Weeks go by with neither sight nor sound of the farmer, and any ‘disturbances’ are inevitably unpredictable and temporary. The Coach House provides an extremely peaceful and relaxing environment enjoyed by countless holiday makers over many years. We are sorry this wasn’t the case for you on this occasion.

  • "The pool is very outdated and a cause for concern."

    We have photos of the tiles on the floor to the pool and the condition of the flooring and the pool it's self. It needs better maintenance and updating, the pool was cold most of the time and we were responsible for putting the pool lid in after use and opening it when I use, not something we want to do on our holiday. The shower wasn't very good or clean either, only one of us could shower in the morning before it went cold, so a rushed shower every morning wasn't nice. Couldn't get a take away delivered as it was too complicated to explain where the cottage was and even the owners were telling us you have to be descriptive as it ends up somewhere else other wise. Directions to get to the cottage was also not easy either. We did have a lovely time we spent days out everyday and the boys would use the pool morning it evening, but it was hassle and I didn't want them spending too much time in there. Also the owner did mention they get an ant problem with the pool so we kept an eye out for that. We wouldn't go back there, wasn't for us.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have passed your comments on to the owner. Best wishes, Hideaways Property Owner

    ..down to some dishwasher tablets and soap. The hosts are wonderfully welcoming too, but then leave you alone to enjoy all the delights of the swimming pool and the local attractions. Whilst The Coach House feels remote, it is a stone's throw from a delightful garden centre that stocks everything from milk and fresh bread, through to fruit and vegetables to locally produced cakes. The National Trust's A La Ronde is also within walking or cycling distance, as is the Exe Trail, a walking/cycling route from Exmouth to Exeter. We stayed in a warm summer week with our 2 children and baby, but have no doubt that the place would be just as enticing in the winter with a real wood-burner for the property, a heated indoor pool, and plenty of books and games for fireside nights-in.

  • "Judy & Andy are perfect hosts."

    The cottage is situated at the rear of their main house. From the top level one can view the River Exe. The Cottage is very clean and is well equipped to ensure you enjoy your stay. Both bedrooms are upstairs as is the shower, bath and toilet. Horses and sheep are close by in paddocks and even though you have the rural feel and sounds, it only take minutes of travel by car to enjoy the enchanted small township of Lympstone and the beautiful surrounding Devonshire countryside. Also as a unique feature they have an indoor swimming pool in its own independent building and Judy & Andy have this also well equipped with everything that one would need and enjoy. If you are looking for a truly unique and real Devonshire experience, I would highly recommend The Coach House.

  • "What a fabulous place!"

    We had a lovely week, relaxing, swimming, exploring and even managed a bit of sailing. Andy & Judy are exceptional hosts. The Coach House was immaculate and we wanted for nothing. The views are excellent and even the sheep provided some excitement when they temporarily escaped into the garden; they were herded by Andy & Judy back to their field (no mean feat at 7.30 am on a Monday morning!). A walk to A-La-Ronde is worthwhile and continuing the stroll into Lympstone and Exmouth is a must. The Swan Inn is very hospitable and the Redwing superb (busy even in our week so worth booking). Thank you for a brilliant holiday - we will make it two weeks next time!
