Visitors Comments

28th July 2018- 'A wonderful location! Nice to hear the donkeys, definitely a change. It was lovely to be able to walk to the beach as well. Highlight was seeing the Milky Way right above us! We have had a lovely stay. The house is great and very peaceful, we would love to come back again.'



21st July 2018- 'We have thoroughly enjoyed our week here, there has been plenty for us to do. The bungalow is clean and spacious so it has really suited our needs.'



16th June 2018 - 'Lovely bungalow, peaceful setting. Ideal for our little dog. We can't fault it at all. Loved the Donkey Sanctuary, so close for dog walks & cafe. Beautiful weather too!'



29th May 2018 - 'Myself, my husband, daughter and little dog came for the bank holiday weekend. We were really pleased with the bungalow and the little touches to make us feel comfortable. It was clean, tidy and spacious for us. This is the best property we've ever stayed in. So peaceful around here. We really enjoyed the Donkey Sanctuary - the lovely walks and our dog went to the dog show. The secluded beach in Weston was beautiful. We will definitely be back.'




28th April 2018 - ' Mum and I have had a lovely week in East Devon. It has been many years since we visited this area & it has been great to re visit our memories. Blackbird has been so comfortable, very clean, plenty of room & such a lovely quiet location. Our little dog has enjoyed all the walks & meeting the donkeys. In all the years of taking self catering holidays around the UK Blackbird is definitely the best. Mum has very limited mobility, so having everything on one level has been a godsend. The bungalow is so well equipped, everything is here. Thank you very much - we will be back for sure.'



6th April 2018 - ' We leave tomorrow after a week in Blackbird. We have stayed here many times. All our family were also on site in other accommodation and once again we had a wonderful family holiday. The property and area is very dog friendly which is a great thing as our dogs are our family and love holidays too! Blackbird did not disappoint as always very clean, spacious and comfortable and we will no doubt be back again. Many thanks.'

Check Availability & Book Booking Form

*Short Break prices shown are for 3 nights only, please call for 4 or 5 night prices if required. Short Breaks are available from the end of October half term to the start of the Easter school holidays, or at the owners' discretion for a last minute booking at other times of the year. Unfortunately it would be most unusual for us to be in a position to consider a short break at peak holiday times, such as the October and February half terms or over the Christmas, New Year and Easter breaks.
