  • "Wonderful holiday, cottage well equipped, cosy and warm."

    The hosts Tony and Marilyn were so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The view from lounge window over Tony's garden had us spellbound watching the birds feeding and darting back to their nests feeding young,

  • "This is a lovely property, both internally and externally."

    We received a warm welcome from the owners. The property was very clean, well maintained and provided everything we needed. There were lovely views across the fields from the dining room table. The property can only be accessed through country lanes, which are a bit of a maze, and at the time of our visit (early April) they were muddy and waterlogged.

  • "It was nice to meet our friendly hosts."

    The property was well presented with obvious attention to detail.We enjoyed a very comfortable stay. From the lounge views were very good, the bird feeding station in the garden was well used by many small birds with a bonus woodpecker and a couple squirrels. The south coast is within easy reach. We will be revisiting Pipistrelle Lodge.

    Beautiful property, wonderful views. Very comfortable, clean and tidy with excellent facilities. Tony and Marilyn made us feel so welcome. A short walk each morning to Plymtree Community Village shop was lovely. Shop and staff so friendly and welcoming. Faultless week away, would highly recommend staying at Pipistrelle Lodge.

  • "Our second stay at Pipistrelle Lodge and another great week there, Marilyn and Tony made us feel very welcome, the welcome pack was a bonus after a long drive from Lincolnshire."

    The general setting of the lodge gives you a beautiful view over the rolling Devon countryside from the big lounge window. Bird feeders are placed so you can watch the bird life and squirrels whilst having your breakfast or meals. A lovely clean and well maintained property equipped with all you need for a weeks stay. We would highly recommend a stay at Pipistrelle.

  • "Like prevous guests, weenjoyed the peace and quiet of Pipistrelles and the lovely views of the garden and the rolling countryside beyond."

    The patio area was also very pleasant and a credit to the owners. However, also like some other guests, we fouind the narrow approach lanes around Plymtree a little offputting and not particularly 'charming'. The accommodation itself is clean and spacious but not particularly well equipped with kitchen accessories for self-catering. Also as others have commented, we fouind the settee in the lounge uncomfortable and difficult to get up from.

  • "We feel corrections to the property description are required as the Hob was electric (not gas) and the Fridge/Freezer was actually a Fridge with only a small Ice Box."

    The cottage was lovely and clean with wonderful views and a beautiful garden to enjoy with much wildlife to watch. The dishwasher is very small so it does not hold very much and the larger dinner plates would not fit in as not much height to it. The sofa, as someone else commented is very low and you sank into it, the dining chairs you also sank into making you too low at the table but we used the chairs from the kitchen. The pillows we found very firm - maybe a soft and a firm would be good? Be prepared for very narrow winding roads if you are not used to them! These are our personal views and just minor points which could be useful to know. Overall a lovely clean, comfortable cottage with very friendly and helpful owners and we very much enjoyed our week here.

    Though we welcome all feedback, the issues reported by our guest were not all correct. The gas hob and fridge freezer details both do need amending on our cottage discriptions due to emergency replacements being sorted. Although the sofa is low and found comfortable by most guests, we do also provide 2 higher comfortable chairs for those who prefer it. The half size dishwasher will accommodate all of the cutlery and crockery provided. Pillows are a personal choice and a variety are provided but for specific personal needs, guests are welcome to provide their own. Devon is a rural county and though we are only 6/7 miles from the M5 and A30, narrow winding lanes are to be expected and are part of the charm. Having said all this, we are pleased that our guests enjoyed our hospitality and enjoyed the views and the wildlife. Property Owner

  • "Pipistrelle Lodge was perfect for us."

    We had short days out at on of the many local attractions, and plenty of time doing not very much other than watching the birds. Dozens and dozens of them on the feeders in the beautiful garden. If you can’t find the cottage when you first arrive, like us, turn up the road opposite the church.

  • "We stayed for two weeks in July, during the heatwave - unfortunately, it was too warm/bright to spend time on the patio (unusual problem, I know!"

    ) Spacious property in a good location - ideal base for exploring the area. We liked the fact that the lounge area was well separated from the kitchen and the large shower room/toilet was not en-suite. The owners were friendly and welcoming, but left us to our own devices. The welcome essentials (bread, milk & butter) were appreciated. Sheets/towels were changed mid-stay, which was good. We would have preferred net curtaining on the bedroom windows - the bedroom is visible from the road (although there is a driveway in between and very little passing by), but a minor point. We also found the settee a little low for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it (and maybe return ourselves in the future) One tip - anyone wishing to dine at the local inns would be advised the check when they are open (quite a few only open a few days a week).

  • "Quite possibly the best place we have ever stayed at."

    Spacious accommodation with everything you could need set in a fabulous location with a spectacular view. Before you even venture out, the garden and patio that you have access to is lovely, and the owners make you very welcome indeed. The bird life is amazing and we spotted 18 species in the garden alone. It was great watching the woodpeckers feed then swoop down to the pond for a drink. In the village is a community run shop and friendly pub where the food choice is more than adequate if you don’t want to drive too far. The town of Collumpton is about 4 miles away with various shops, pubs and takeaways, and a Tesco and Aldi. There is so much to do in this part of the country that a week is simply not long enough. We can thoroughly recommend the National Trust properties at Killerton, Knighthayes and Coleton Fishacre where the gardens and scenery are stunning. Also the botanical gardens at Bicton are worth a visit. Treat yourself to breakfast at Fordmore farm shop and cafe just down the road, and a cream tea at the Old Well garden centre one junction up the M5. We will be back!

We did a lot of walking, some of it on way-marked field paths but much of it on very quiet lanes. We ate twice at the village pub, which was very good, and once at The Merry Harriers at Westcott, which was excellent; this was an easy 2½ mile walk along the quiet lane.

About the location


Honiton 8 miles; Tiverton 11 miles; Sidmouth 13 miles.

Plymtree is a delightful village in East Devon with plenty to offer it’s visitors. Lying in the valley of the River Culm the village is surrounded by rolling Devon hills, green wooded valleys and scattered farming villages. Plymtree is home to a local pub, The Blacksmith Arms, along with additional village pubs within two miles serving good food. Also of interest is the community shop, run by volunteers and the historic parish church of St John the Baptist. The church itself dates back to the 14th century and of great interest is the 15th century addition, the painted rood screen. In the churchyard gaze at the ancient Yew Tree, thought to be over 1100 years old and the inspiration for the village’s name. Plymtree is only a short drive from the dramatic 20 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural World Heritage Site. Resorts such as Seaton, Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth are found along this stretch of coastline, and all have plenty to occupy their visitors. An easy drive from Plymtree is the cathedral city of Exeter with plenty of large shops, a wealth of museums, a theatre and many fabulous restaurants. Plymtree is also close to the rugged and unspoilt expanse of Exmoor National Park as well as the tranquil and beautiful Blackdown Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
