“Lovely Holiday Home”
Reviewed July 2, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

person found this review helpful

Stayed here for a week starting June 24. I can only echo what most other reviews express. This really is a great property to stay in. Amanda and John have done wonderful job in creating a perfect holiday property. The house provides ample space and faciities for a large family. It is home from home with some really nice touches. Lovely kitchen area. It has a nice garden with barbecue. It is close to the beach and town. All in all a perfect base for what we needed and we hope to return next year.

“Perfect family holiday home”
Reviewed June 3, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Amanda welcomed us warmly and showed us the beautiful house. We couldn't have asked for more, lovely decorations, very practical with downstairs WC, close to local pub and well designed back garden. Our little one loved the bird feeding station and outdoor space. Recommend any time and love to come back again. Thanks Amanda & family! Knut

“Beautiful home in a handy location.”
Reviewed January 18, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

What a surprise when we arrived after a long journey from Australia. The house was immaculate and beautifully presented. The facilities were excellent. Everything to live as a family during our stay was provided and we enjoyed a fantastic Christmas, able to entertain our family and friends. Amanda was wonderful and extremely helpful. She had even decorated the house throughout, including a Christmas tree. The house was also close to Paignton town centre and beach with only a ten minute walk to the station and shorter to bus services if you are without a car. We will certainly stay again if we are back this way. Thank you again, Amanda!

“Superb Cosy Stay in a Beautifully Presented House”
Reviewed November 21, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

The previous reviews are all spot on- this is a great place to stay on the English Riviera. The house is very well equipped and has everything you might need for a relaxing stay. The bedding linen was crisp and immaculately clean. We found it a really good location to visit Totnes, Brixham, Dartmouth and the Riviera itself. The house is slightly set back from the road which is nice, but it is a quiet area anyway. Amanda the owner was really helpful during the booking process, accommodating our questions and requests. And equally welcoming on arrival, wishing us a good stay. We enjoyed visiting the nearby Paignton Zoo which was a great day out. We would happily stay again and I can't think of anything that was a negative.

“Gorgeous cottage & exceptional value for money!”
Reviewed September 15, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We visited Paignton as a group of 8 friends aged between 20 and 35, and stayed for 3 nights. The cottage is located a short walk from the sea and the main shopping streets. Most of us arrived by train and it was easy to find our way by foot from the station.

Whilst we enjoyed exploring the coast and the town, we spent much of the time in the cottage itself, which provided a lovely homely environment for us all to hang out in. "Characterful" is certainly the right word! It felt like a very well-loved house, with pictures, plants and ornaments in every room.

The kitchen was spacious with a large dining table that seated us all comfortably. Garden was gorgeous, well-groomed and felt very private as well - we had two BBQs so ended up spending a lot of time outside. Living room was cosy with leather armchairs & sofa. The sofa was large enough to sleep on - one guest took it for a bed and had no complaints. And we all loved the spacious shower unit! Everything was in great condition.

I would say that although it is possible to sleep 8, we were probably pushing what the house can comfortably accommodate, as it was quite hectic in the mornings in the kitchen and having one shower limited how fast we could all get ourselves ready. However we knew all this when booking, and it just required us to be a bit more organised.

We did not meet Amanda face to face but she was always friendly in communication and quick to respond to messages.

Thank you Amanda for providing us with a lovely stay in Paignton!
