Property is ideally situated for the Byes, a lovely area of parkland next to the river Sid. Great for dog walks either into the town and beach or just to walk up the wooded valley. The property with the multi fuel stove in the lounge was cosy on winters evenings. The parking and approach to the property is tight especially if you have a large car, however it does mean that the lane is free of traffic.
We stayed in the Starfish house in December, just the two of us, and really enjoyed our stay. The accommodation is a modern two double bedroom dwelling, spacious and very comfortable. Each bedroom had its own ensuite bathroom, one having a walk in modern shower that was very clean and well presented. The kitchen/dining room is spacious and well equipped and bright, with a full height window as is the lounge. An added benefit is having a downstairs toilet.
Facing the Starfish residence there are the two other rental properties which are separated by small garden at the front that is well designed and laid out with shrubs, allowing a degree of privacy. There is reserved parking on the road adjacent to the properties, which are accessed via a high entrance gate, again allowing a little seclusion.
The rental properties are located on Queen street, which runs parallel to the main street and is just a couple of minutes walk away; this is about the same distance to the beach. Budleigh town centre is well blessed with shops and good for shoppers browsing, with pleasant and attentive shop owners. There are two pubs in the centre that also serve food, the Feathers and the Salterton Arms, both being a short walk away. For dining out, our favourites were the Asian restaurant and McMillans Delecantesant.
Saving the best feature while last, Leticia Vaughan was a superb host, helpful, kind and patient in running through the introduction, which is a real benefit too, having a local owner available to greet you and to answer any questions.
We are looking forward to a repeat visit, thanks to Leticia.
