                                A very comfortable cottage, spacious and well equipped. Enclosed private rear garden with quite spectacular view. Otterton is a very pretty village with excellent pub/restaurant. All round a great location for exploring this very nice part of Devon.

                                A Truly Luxurious Holiday Cottage

                                5 of 5
                                From the moment we arrived to the moment we HAD to leave. We loved it at Starfish Cottage. The pictures can't do justice to how stunning these cottages are. There are so many little details that have been thought through. Which enable you to relax in such comfort! The beds are big & comfy with fresh hotel linen. Big fluffly bath towels. Beautiful big kitchen, with everything you need at hand, plenty of room to eat inside & out. Handy washing machine, cleverly tucked away. Big bedrooms, with walkin closets! And ensuites! Nice comfortable sofas and chairs. Pretty landscaped shared garden. Beautifully light and airy with high windows & lovely architecture. The two bedrooms are at either end of Starfish Cottage. (So you don't feel/or hear your kids right next door!) TV's & integral DVD players in lounge & both bedrooms. And free Wi-Fi (every parent of teenagers knows how essential this is!) I could go on... But I think you've got the picture, basically, we didn't want to leave (ever!) Letitia was lovely & very kind to our very excited children. We will definitely be going back. This is such a rare find & the price is so good, affordable - kind for families in the holidays. Budleigh Salterton is a beautiful town, lots of bargains to be had in the many shops (particularly in the charity shops - which have some great stock) & the many boutique shops & wonderful ice cream from The Creamery! The beach is beautiful, lovely for swimming, fishing, kayaking. Framed by huge red cliffs one end, pastel beach huts, good cafés and the estuary (which provides) rock pools, lovely river walks/paddling, along the River Otter at the end. Exmouth is just 10 minutes away, if you want sand & some children's amusements. These cottages are really a rare find. You won't regret booking any of them, as they all have their own unique layout & stamp, but the same luxurious quality. They provide a perfect base for you to explore so many beautiful places nearby. Knowing that you have somewhere lovely to return home to. Well done Letitia - you have created such a beautiful secret sanctuary, perfect for couples or families, a truly luxurious getaway.
