perfect home from home

5 of 5
we loved it here. In a quiet street but only feet from the town.The carpark was very near and you can pay for a few days at a time if you wish the house was very clean and comfy. Lovely beds and bedding. homemade bread and scones etc was very welcoming. Defo going back!!!

A real home from home

5 of 5
The bungalow is beautiful and has everything you need for an amazing holiday. We were made to feel so welcome by Claire leaving us biscuits, mince pies, milk and even a bottle of wine!! The hideaway is so quiet but only a minutes walk from Topsham. The garden and conservatory are beautiful and cant wait to come back in the better weather to be able to make full use of these too. Thank you
