Just the two of us spent a couple of nights here. The cottage was in a great location for us being so close to the Donkey Sanctuary and main road allocated parking was great. Cottage is comfortable and well equipped. We arrived when the weather was cold so glad we were well prepared with a stock of one pound coins for the electricity meter. Once the place was warmed up, it was fine. Value for money, this cottage meet our needs for a short break, walking distance to the sanctuary for coffee, breakfast, a meal if required and of course to visit the donkeys. Easy access main roads and lovely walks direct from the cottage.
Unfortunately, when we arrived, the cleaners had not carried out their duties, so the cottage was not ready for new guests. This is the reason for the 3 rating.
We contacted the owner and the situation was "fixed" to our satisfaction very quickly. We then really enjoyed our stay there. We wanted to visit the Donkey Sanctuary and being able to walk there from our accommodation was great for us. We would definitely stay there again
This is a lovely well maintained clean holiday chalet/cottage with all required amenities .We came to visit our adopted donkey and the sanctuary is minutes away. It was ideal for us for a short break. There are lovely walks from the cottage around the Donkey Sanctuary and we can recommend the food in their restaurant.
Unfortunately it has to be said our rating is for the accommodation only. It would be much less if the holiday park was to be considered .I acknowledge that our visit was off peak and admittedly the weather was not good but the whole site appeared run down and poorly maintained amongst other things the (very) overflowing bins next to the cottage remained that way throughout our stay.
We would recommend this holiday rental if you like donkeys,and possibly if it is in the holiday season
First thing you notice is the quiet.And lots of it! The cottage itself was clean and had home touches to it.You get your own allocated parking space,always good.The lounge was hard to heat but we weren't there to sit about watching tv.Comfy beds,shower had low pressure but did the job,hairdryer in the draw and the kitchen had everything you could need.I think I put £6 in the meter over the course of the weekend but it was a cold one.I'd recommend this site to anyone looking for a break from hustle and bustle
We had a lovely short break at seagull cottage. The cottage is basic but has everything needed for a comfortable stay especially for how much it costs per night. Great that it's such a short walk to see the donkeys, our 2yr old loved it! We found we had to put quite a few £1's into the electric meter but it was the end of October so was quite chilly. If you stay in cooler months just make sure you have a few pound coins to keep you going.
Overall an enjoyable stay. Thank you.
We stayed here for a week and we had a great time the cottage was comfortable and well equipped the site was peaceful and in lovely surroundings we definitely had breakfast with donkeys sidmouth was nearby and there was lots to see and do in the area we would definitely come again
