Visitors Comments

17th August 2017 - 'When we weren't on the beach (Branscombe is our favourite with its fab restaurant) We spent most of the time in the wonderful kitchen, eating, drinking and playing games. Kayaking up th Ex is a different way of exploring - enquire on the beach in Seaton. Use the ordinance survey map to cut across fields to the fountain head for a beer or two. Alice (3) wanted desperately to stay but reluctantly we have taken her home.' The Partridges & The Marshes

26th August 2017 - ' Very nice cottage. Weston beach is very quiet, good walk down, no facilities, so take what you need but very quiet. Good for dogs. Branscombe beach ok for dogs too but busy. Beer, Lyme Regis, Sidmouth and Exmouth all great.' MaCrow family
