“Lovely character cottage, fantastic hosts!”
Reviewed December 30, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Lovely cottage in such a beautiful part of the country! Hosts went out of their way to make it a special Christmas stay, even putting up a tree for us and stockings for our children. Highly recommend this lovely holiday rental.

“Ideal rental with great facilities and lovely hosts”
Reviewed November 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed here for the second time in August. It is a lovely cottage, so well maintained and equipped. A lot of thought has gone into making this place the perfect getaway in rural east Devon by Di and Dave, who are superb hosts. Love it.

“Lovely getaway, quaint farm and only short drive to the coast”
Reviewed August 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed with our 6 month old son and had a great time.
Di and Dave were lovely hosts, there to help with any questions and always busy on the farm, whether that be feeding the ducklings and the lambs, building stables or shooing herons away from the fish pond!
The buildings have great character, the accommodation was very clean and the separate dwellings provided us with our very own holiday let.
We took day trips to the lovely villages of Lyme Regis, Seaton and Beer for fish and chips and ice cream buy the sea as well as fossil hunting at Charmouth.
We had a great time, we'll certainly be back to see George the Sheep and Rose Suki the dogs.

“Perfect getaway from city life”
Reviewed August 10, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

During our short visit to Mwendafye we were greeted by Di who gave us a tour of the cosy cottage and farmstead. Lovely location with beautiful garden, homely touches (thanks for the creamed tea), we were provided with everything we needed for a plentiful breakfast and it was great for children as the loft had entertainment provided. 20 drive from the coast line which is a good day out, very dramatic coastline. Also went on a old school tram which went through a bird sanctuary and into a Saxon village.

Overall very happy with our stay thank you very much.

“Cosy Devon Retreat”
Reviewed April 30, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned from a short vacation staying in Mwendafye cottage and I cannot recommend the accommodation highly enough. It provided us with a handy base to explore the local area, with Axminster, Honiton and the beaches of Lyme Regis and Seaton within short drives.

I travelled with my girlfriend and young daughter and we were all catered for excellently, even down to the fact that my partner is off dairy due to nursing. All breakfast supplies were provided with this in mind and we were even greeted with some dairy-free cakes to welcome us on arrival.

It really is the little thoughtful touches that have made the stay so pleasant. Provision of breakfast, the cottage itself was immaculate and very well kitted out.

Di is a very welcoming host and made us feel at home during our visit. And on departure we were given some of her duck eggs and dairy-free chocolate - again another lovely touch!

“Excellent accomodation and host”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed in this beautiful cottage for one week. It is by far the best equipped place we have stayed at, everything you could want was provided. Di is welcoming and friendly and makes superb cakes. The cottage is located in a quiet rural setting with many places to visit in East Devon and West Dorset only a short drive away. Highly recommended.

“Wonderful home from home”
Reviewed July 9, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Over the years we have rented many holiday cottages but this was the best by a long shot. Di the owner was so wonderful and she had thought of everything from a welcoming plate of freshly home made scones to making sure we had everything you could think of to make our stay fantastic. The cottage is finished to a very high standard and at a very reasonable price. The cottages location was ideally located for exploring the Devon coast line with many locations such as Sidmouth, Beer and Lyme Regis all within 5 miles. We nearly didn't write a comment as we wanted to keep this brilliant cottage all to ourselves but on reflection decided we need to tell everyone how wonderful Di's holiday cottage was
