The house itself was surprisingly quiet given its proximity to the town centre and a pub. The Tiger Inn, barely a minute's walk, is very welcoming and has a good selection of ales. There's an excellent cafe a few steps further on which does a good a hot chocolate as you'll ever try. We walked everywhere. Twice to West Bay, along the clifftop and along the beach as well as climbing a few hills. We left the car in the long stay car park in East St. That's a mile by road but 4 minutes on foot! At only £2.80 per day, it's good, but there weren't many spaces available. The house is well equipped and there are lots of good shops nearby. For winos, try Palmers shop on the road to West Bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our three days. I am sure we will be back soon! Thank you so much, Neil & Penny.

What a perfect spot for a week away from London - the cottage is modern with three large double en-suite bedrooms and underfloor heating throughout the open plan ground floor area. The owners are so nice and had, unexpectedly, set up a Christmas tree before our arrival plus a welcome pack full of goodies. The house was perfect for our 3 young boys with a large open plan area downstairs, a field outside for playing football and a hot tub (one of the main reasons for choosing this property!). Even in winter the area is stunning, but must be even more amazing any other time of the year. The local pub at the end of the driveway is fantastic serving great food - we ate here a few times and can highly recommend it. There's lots of walks in the local area and within a 45 min drive you can get to either the South or North Devon Coast. There's a lot of great cycling in the area - we rode along the Grand Western Canal from Tiverton Parkway to Tiverton with the kids which is an easy ride for all ages and stunning scenery. It's also within reach of the Cheddar Gorge and Wells (a visit to the cathedral is a must see). The town of Beer on the south coast was also worth a visit. A slightly further day trip to Saunton Sands is worth the effort with its huge sand dunes and probably the highlight of our holiday (apart from the hot tub!). There's lots of good local amenities with the town of Wellington only 10 minutes away - even the petrol station has a large Budgens with everything you need, including a Cook frozen meals fridge, which was handy over the Christmas period. I can highly recommend this house and the local area. Thank you Nick and Deborah for making it a perfect Christmas break for us!
