It's tucked down a little road so it's incredibly peaceful, with no other noisy guests to worry about, just the bleating of the sheep and the call of the seagulls, yet only a short stroll into the village with some lovely restaurants. With little light pollution it's a great place for stargazing. The pod is light and airy and has everything you need with a modern bathroom with fantastic shower. Louise is very friendly and helpful but also respectful of your privacy. I just wish we'd had longer. We'll definitely be coming back

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Loved the house as soon as I walked through the door. Everywhere was clean & tidy & had a fresh scent. The decor was exactly to my taste with a lovely 'beachy' theme. The sofas were big & squashy, perfect for relaxing after a hard day at the beach (a few minutes walk down the hill). The kitchen had everything you could need, with good quality appliances & equipment. There's a great selection of books & reading matter. There's a lovely patio set in the tidy stepped garden & benches at the top of the garden with views over the village. Friendly neighbours & caretakers a couple of doors away. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms. Lovely comfy bed in master bedroom (only 2 of us so didn't use the other rooms, although they looked equally comfy). Plenty of space for clothes etc. Again, good quality furnishings, duvets, etc. The bathroom had a decent bath with shower over, and plentiful hot water. We took our spaniel, Flynn & were pleasantly surprised to find that dog dishes & even poop bags were provided although we had taken our own. There was a comprehensive guide book to the property which had all the information needed regarding the home & operating instructions for all appliances etc. The house has parking for a small/medium car at the front although those with huge 'gas guzzlers' may prefer to use the public car park a few steps away down the hill. Beer itself is a small friendly village with pubs, restaurants, a deli, post office, bakers, a chemist & many other small shops. The Dolphin Hotel is a couple of minutes walk away & has public & lounge bars & serves decent food including hearty Sunday lunches. The cafes on the beach serve hot & cold food & drinks. Particularly recommended are the fresh crab sandwiches & 'damn the diet' (huge cornets topped with clotted cream) ice creams from Chapples (the middle one of the 3). The Donkey Sanctuary, a few miles down the road towards Sidmouth is well worth a visit, especially for those of us who love these beautiful gentle creatures. Admission is free too, so good for families with children who don't want to spend a fortune. Many other lovely places to visit locally, most of which can be found in the many books, leaflets etc at the cottage. I've been staying in Beer in various properties, hotels, caravans etc for over 45 years & can honestly say that Hogscliffe is top of my list. Beer always makes me feel like I'm coming home, & now I've discovered this lovely cottage even more so. Will definitely return ASAP

Good restaurants, try the Italian also the hotel in centre of the village. Probably for me was the amazing flora offered by all the local traders and the lack of the usual seaside start. Will be back!!!!!
