  • "Lovely property in a very good location."

    Minor points, - A teapot would be useful Better pillows ALL with protectors and check condition of duvets Blackout blinds/curtains. The current blinds are far too flimsy. This applies to all holiday lets :- Early leave time + a long list of to-do chores is ridiculous. Leaves bad taste.

  • "The bedrooms could do with curtains as the blinds didn’t shut out the light very well."

    The property was in an excellent position & was well equipped & very clean. We enjoyed our stay there

  • "We were sad to leave this house, we could have easily moved in."

    It was a 10-15 minute walk to the beach or the town although there is a slope. We have bus passes and the bus stops were nearby with a frequent service to the town and on to Exeter. The house was perfect for us, bright and clean. The kitchen was particularly well equipped and the lounge roomy and comfortable. The bedrooms were light and airy with comfortable beds and lovely, clean bedding. The bathrooms were fresh and clean.The central heating worked well. There was good broadband, I measured 57 Mbps. I think it was relatively recent. There was a nice welcome pack of bread, butter and milk as well. Sophie, who looks after the house, was easy to reach by messaging and did a very good job of preparing it. We would recommend this place but bear in mind it is on three floors and so has two flights of stairs each with a double turn. Just turned 80 we had no problems though. There are two allocated parking spaces within the enclosed front which has easy access. It is on busy roundabout but is quiet at night.

    Thank you very much for your lovely comments. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the house and Exmouth. Hopefully we will be able to welcome you again sometime soon. Kind regards Susanne Marshall Property Owner

  • "2 Carlton Mews is a well situated property for easy access to the shops , cafes & beach."

    It was very kind & welcoming to find some delicious bread & butter plus milk for a cup of tea after travelling. The beds were very comfortable as were the sofas .All instructions needed were clear & concise - only slight niggle was that we couldn't find spare bin bags for use after "bin day" but it was no problem as we bought some from the excellent Market Hall. The only downside is the traffic & especially the "little dears" that like to act like idiots very very late at night. However , there is nothing that can be done about that & you soon get used to it . ( perhaps double glazing might help to cut down the noise but that is expensive ). All in all it is an excellent property & we have stayed here before & hope to be back again next year.

    Thank you very much for your kind comments. We will put "extra bin bags" on the check list for our caretaker. We hope to be able to welcome you again next year. Kind regards Susanne Marshall Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable house, quick response from the person managing the place when extra towels requested."

    Two comments which appear to be reoccurring. Traffic noise is really bad. Not the best location for a holiday. Blinds in bedrooms are pathetic. Needs black out curtains. Also for the heat. It was very hot and they don't keep the house cool.

    Thank you very much for your comments. Unfortunately there is not much we can do about the traffic noise, but we did take your suggestion of black out curtains on board. We are also intending to provide some fans for the summer months. Kind regards Susanne Marshall Property Owner

    Nothing too much trouble. Ideal well facilitated property for family of different ages, close to the beach and amenities. Hardly needed to use the cars. Walked & used ferries & trains off peak.

    Thank you very much for your kind comments. I will pass them on to Sophie. We hope to be able to welcome you again some time soon. Property Owner

    Well equipped. Warm. Possible improvements: Towels need replacing - rather grey. Some pans need replacing- stained. Internet was slow. Overall experience was very good.

    Thank you for your feedback and suggestions. We did actually stay in the property ourselves in May and acted upon your comments i.e. replaced some pans and towels. Kind regards Susanne Marshall Property Owner

  • "This is a very nice house close to the sea but it is by a roundabout with traffic noise and street lighting."

    Black out blinds in the front bedroom would be good and more instructions on using the televisions, especially the one in the kitchen which comes up as 'Not programmed'. Our grandson found bbc sounds and iplayer but more instruction would be helpful.

    Thank you for your feedback. We will consider putting up black-out blinds in the front bedroom, during our next visit. There should be detailed instructions in the information folder in regard to the TV, we will check and confirm this. Property Owner

    The springs / support in the sofa's had totally gone and was uncomfortable to sit on.The house was on a really noisy road which meant it was impossible to sleep with the windows open. Exmouth itself is great, sadly the house is not!

  • "The property is located in a very convenient position just a short stroll to the beach and the town."

    The beach is lovely and Sandy and exceeded our expectations. The house was modern and clean but all the beds were uncomfortable and new mattresses are required. Additionally the duvets are bulky and uncomfortable. It would also have been very useful to have a tumble dryer and for the back courtyard to have been cleared of the overhanging trees. The neighbours were very friendly.

  • "Accommodation was good."

    With some changes it could be excellent: * TV in kitchen/diner is not connected to any signal, so is a waste of space. * Bed was hard and very creaky. Hard to change position without waking partner. * Neighbour's plants are overhanging the fence and making the already small patio area harder to enjoy. * we were their for a fortnight. Each Wednesday evening we put the bins out as per instructions. Recycling bins were emptied on the middle Thursday, but not the main bin. On the 2nd Thursday nothing was emptied. I appreciate this is a problem with the council rather than the property, but if I don't mention it the owner won't know and therefore be able to address the issue with the council. Other than these small niggles everything was fine with the accommodation and we had a good time. The location is great, with the beach, cafes and restaurants all within easy walking distance, and brunch from "Crusty Cobs" became a holiday tradition.

    It is very close to the esplanade and has a slight incline leading to the sea front which was very manageable for older people. The resort is very clean with little litter and there are well kept gardens close by. A visit to the small museum is worthwhile..costs £1! Staff there working very hard to keep it open, the Gent that was eager to share his knowledge with us was very interesting and charming.

The property

In a neat row of four houses 500 meters from the beach and Coast Path in Exmouth is this smart townhouse.

Rambling over three storeys, this welcoming accommodation is suitable for families or friends looking to enjoy this lovely coastal spot.

The front door leads you into the hall, and from there into your smart sitting room, a relaxing space with leather sofas, TV and electric fire.

The smart kitchen is an ideal room for preparing meals to enjoy in the dining area up a couple of steps.

Head on up to two double bedrooms sharing a bathroom, and up again to the top floor and its double bedroom with a glimpse of the coast and a shower room.

Outside, at the back, is an enclosed seating area where you can enjoy barbecues, plus covered storage for your bikes and beach stuff.

That will come in handy if you choose to take advantage of the great cycle tracks which lead to the city of Exeter or across the water on the ferry to Starcross.

Stay within Exmouth and you have plenty to entertain you, with shops, pubs, a cinema, theatre, and of course the long and lovely sandy beach.

Here you can try sailing, windsurfing, bird watching or walking on the Coast Path.

With Dartmoor not far away, 2 Carlton Mews is perfectly positioned for exploring coast and countryside.

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.
