We have recently spent a most enjoyable week staying at Barley Cottage. If peace and tranquility is your want - you can do no better. The cottage was extremely well equipped and very comfortable. We were most appreciative of the lovely welcoming gifts provided by our host, Martin. These cottages want for nothing and cannot really add to the previous... More

We stayed at Barley Cottage again this year. A list of all that we find ideal about this accommodation would be lengthy - so suffice it to say that we have been back every year since discovering Yapham Cottages in 2012, previously having wondered why anyone would keep revisiting the same holiday location! The area is ideal if you seek... More

We stayed in Shipload Cottage for a week, but wanted it to last forever. The cottage was everything we wanted and more. Everything you could ever need was there and nothing was too much trouble for Martin and the team. The welcome was warm and the treats left for us very welcome. The cottage was spotlessly clean. Thank you for... More

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
