  • "Lovely cottage and lovely hosts - very helpful without being intruding."

    Strong recommendation for any future guests. The weather always helps and it was so nice having use of the pool. Thanks Angela and Stuart (and Bourbon)!

  • "We had a lovely time and were very comfortable."

    The cottage is well located for visiting the coast or inland. Although the kitchen is compact it worked for us and had everything we required.

  • "Really great holiday at Broadclyst Cottage."

    The owner was very welcoming, with useful info sent in advance. The cottage was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed (including fast wifi). The pool was fun, and the timetable system meant we had 2 x 120 minute sessions per day. The field for letting our dog off lead was useful. It was our first long trip with an electric car, and we found rapid charging points a short drive away at Exeter Morrisons and at the pub opposite Exeter Aldi.
