Ann & I had a wonderful holiday at Windbury. Plenty of walks along the coast path which we found we could access from the other side of Yapham Wood. The cottage had everything you could want in the way of equipment, it was warm & cosy and extremely clean. We visited Lundy Island on one day which was extremely interesting... More

We had a fantastic break in a superb cottage. To be welcomed with scones, clotted cream and jam plus a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine was wonderful. Our dog really enjoyed the treats left for him as well. It is a bird watchers paradise with woodpeckers, blue tits, coal tits, pheasants to name but a few seen... More

My wife and I and the three dogs have recently enjoyed a week in Barley Cottage. We received the same warm welcome from Martin that others have experienced and the wine, chocolates and scones were much appreciated. The setting is very pleasant with excellent views just a short walk away. The cottage itself is in excellent order and was warm... More

Dear Neil, Thank you for writing a review of your stay. Yapham is great for walkers, being close to the South West Coast Path and having access to our neighbour's permissive trail. There is so much wildlife here, that it is incredible. We regularly spot deer down the driveway or in our own small woodland. Guests have even reported seeing... More

Dear Will, Thank you for your wonderful review of your stay in Shipload Cottage. I love your description of the cottages as being "Like a secret garden in southern Spain!" Lots of our guests have described Yapham in glowing ways, but never like that before. Many of our guests choose Yapham because the coast path passes nearby. I'm glad that... More
