spacious, well equipped, clean and tidy, everything works, off road parking, good public transport.

5 of 5
We had good weather and used the local no2 'bus to Dawlish town gardens and river. Another day we walked to the beach via footpath and bridge over railway and then on to Dawlish and returned on 'bus. Another day we went by 'bus to Starcross then ferry to Exmouth returning by train, and lots of other things. Good facilities in kitchen so we always cooked our evening meal, lots of very hot water for the washing up. Kitchen tap a little stiff but quite manageable. Best short break we have had for a long time.

Lovely cottage, good location - quiet village but close enough to Bridport for shops/restaurants

5 of 5
Enjoyed our week, cottage is dog friendly, has nice back garden and good walks from the door way into neighbouring villages. Close to Bridport could get a taxi at night no problem. Would stay again
