                                                                                                      My family of seven adults and two young grandchildren came from the U.S. to spend Christmas with our UK family that lives in Exeter. We needed a large house, not just for us but for the additional family that would be joining us for Christmas day (fifteen in all). This house met our needs perfectly. With four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms for sleeping and plenty of space to spread out in the living room, entertainment room and conservatory, along with a large kitchen and dining room - perfect. The house was very well maintained and had many upscale luxuries, including a SONOS sound system. The floor heating was a wonderful touch in the mornings and the conservatory could be shut off from the rest of the house for a little quiet time if necessary. The location was perfect for us with plenty of places (pubs, restaurants, shops, a huge antique mall) within walking distance and trains and buses passing through town on a regular basis to get us to Exeter or the beach. The owners were great to work with and provided a warm Christmas atmosphere for us including a live Christmas tree. There was even toys, a stroller and a pack-n-play for the little ones. We stayed for 12 nights and made full use of the house during that time with no complaints. With this length of a stay we made full use of the washer and dryer too. The one negative for us (remember we're from the U.S.) was the roads in Topsham, especially getting to the house - it was very narrow. The driveway enabled us to park our two rental cars but getting in and out was a challenge. I would highly recommend this house to anyone seeking to stay in the Exeter region with a large family.

Apartment is in a very good location and is perfect for short walks along the beautiful coast and dunes or longer walks to nearby towns. Close by there are quite a few pubs to choose from plus some local attractions for children (fortunately most of them were closed during our stay in December :)). Apartment itself is really nicely decorated and furnished. Beds are very comfortable, bathroom is nice and modern and kitchen is well equipped. The only negative is the proximity to the car park which I imagine can get busy during summer period however it was not an issue for us. Overall I think that it is a perfect place for family holidays and I will recommend it to anyone.
