“The stable, colyton”
Reviewed August 12, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Wow what a great place for rest and relaxation, which the host Mike was very attentive. The house was perfect for our family and grandchildren and the surrounding areas were amazing (subject to the English Weather of course)!
The roads into the village need some attention by the local council and trim back the hedges though, be careful about your driving!

Thank you very much for your positive comments. The Stables is a grand accommodation and we are pleased you all had a good time and the cottage lived up to your expectations !

With regards to the hedges - you will have to complain to the council, as they make the rules about banning hedge cutting between March and August !!

“Lovely setting close to Colyton Seaton”

We all had a lovely week in this very pretty cottage. The accommodation is very spacious with the open plan lounge, dining area and kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you need, lots of crockery, saucepans and utensils. The bedrooms are a good size and all with en-suite bathrooms which when you have a couple of teenagers in the party is ideal (knowing how long they take to get ready!!).

We spent quite a lot of time in the garden and it was great to have a barbecue which we made good use of. It was also lovely to see the horses and sheep in the adjoining fields and to be able to walk around the farm and fields. The children really liked "Nobby" the ostrich and enjoyed watching him doing his dance every time you visited him.

This cottage is in a very central position for visiting the East Devon seaside resorts and there are lots to choose from i.e. Seaton, Beer, Lyme Regis, Branscombe, Exmouth etc.

Would certainly recommend this cottage to anyone.

My extended familiy and I recently celebrated my husbands 40th here, renting two of Mike's cottages. And we weren't disappointed.

The cottages are in a superb location and offer real value for money. We enjoyed the space, the wood burner, walks in the grounds and the little touches such as milk and biscuits etc. for our late arrival.

There is no doubt we'll be back. Thanks Mike!

“A Peaceful retreat”

My family and I stayed in The Stables on Whitwell Farm last week and we had a great time - especially as the sun shone all week. The cottage was large and comfortable plus each bedroom had an on-suite. Even though you were on a farm we were not bothered by anyone - infact the animals were a pleasant distraction - especially the ostrich.
One small word of warning - you are on a working farm so expect animal sounds and smells - you are in the country!

Lovely ! Glad you all enjoyed it. We do our best to make it memorable for our visitors. The "countryside smell" that was mentioned was only a neighbouring farmer spreading manure - it only happens once a year ! Usually it is Pleasantly Fragrant around here !!
