Based in the centre of Woodbury village and surrounded by delightful country side, it is an ideal base for exploring Devon. Woodbury Common is great for beautiful country dog walks and is very close by. The cottage is cosy and well equipped. Plenty of beaches nearby.
This is a quaint and cosy cottage as you would imagine a true cottage to be. Beautifully presented and furnished with everything you need for your holiday. Being the age it is the cottage had plenty of character with upstairs having slightly sloping floors, and lower ceilings in places, but not a problem it's how a cottage this old should be. The village it self was ideal for exploring the local area Exmouth, Sidmouth, Budleigh to name a few and in the evening there were 2 local pubs to relax in both serving excellent food. Would have no problem staying here again.
This was our second stay at the Thatched Cottage. The first was when settling our youngest daughter at university and this trip was to celebrate her Graduation. The location is great for getting into Exeter, but away from the hustle and bustle. It's also great for getting into Exmouth if you fancy a stroll along the beach. As the M5 is only a 5 minute drive it's easy to get to Dartmoor and beyond. As for the cottage itself it's cosy and quirky, which we love. It has everything you need if you want to eat in and coped extremely well when 2 friends joined us for dinner (6)!!
Would I recommend this as a place definitely.
Would I stay here again absolutely!!
I wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of my normal surroundings for a few days and I couldn't have picked a better place to stay. It was lovely to be out of the way a little bit but still in reach of some excellent amenities and great places to visit. The cottage was clean and homely and I was able to relax immediately. This is a wonderful bolthole from which to explore this beautiful area. I feel sure I will be back.
Charming little thatched cottage, which we could have moved into in an instant
Everything we dreamed of
Would most certainly rebook if in Devon again
Owner extremely helpful & friendly
Thanks Jane for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage
If I were to have a weekend cottage in the countryside then it would be this.
The decor is fabulous, the location is perfect and the host - Jane - is helpful and communicative.
Situated a few miles from Exeter, this cottage is a great base for visitors to Devon and its location in the village itself, gives access to shop and pub and the perfect village green for exercising the dog!
There is no feeling of cheap furnishings or sub standard contents at Little Thatch -
my family and I felt that we were staying at the country retreat of a friend or relative and were all grateful for the experience.
I would love to visit again and we are trying to make plans to ensure that we are at Little Thatch again soon.
Woodbury is easy to get to and is a nice quiet village, near to Exeter, Dartmoor and the coast. Good village shop and post office, and two pubs, plus two small antique shops.
The cottage is opposite the village green, and parking is a little bit of a lottery but then that seems to be the case for the whole of Devon!. It is well fitted out, we did not find anything we want to be unavailable. We loved the quirky flooring and doors - but remember to duck when going through them as they are low.
And, finally, the owners are very happy for you to have your dogs with you.
