“Enjoyable, relaxing and peaceful stay”
Reviewed August 31, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My partner and two young children ( aged 2 and 5) spent a very enjoyable and restful week at the old post office. The accommodation itself was perfect for us and very spacious. There are two nice pubs within a couple of minutes walk and a Tesco 10 mins drive. Hope to visit again soon.

“Lovely cottage, perfect for West Devon holiday.”
Reviewed August 23, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Lovely spacious accommodation with everything you need to make your holiday. We stayed here as a family of 7 plus our two small dogs. The cottage has been renovated and is modern in its layout and facilities, but retains the charm of a cottage. It was spotlessly clean and had wifi and TV for the members of the family who couldn't live without it. The south facing rear garden is perfect if the sun is required and on two levels..great for an evening outside with the BBQ. The village pubs are within easy walking distance and 'supplies' can be easily obtained in Seaton which is only a 5 min drive away. The owner was very helpful and welcoming. Could not fault this place one bit....Fabulous!

Thank you Jon. So glad you had a superb holiday and enjoyed both the cottage and the area.
You were obviously so relaxed that you forgot you were in East Devon, not West :-) Doesn't matter as all Devon is gorgeous!
Hope you can stay again sometime soon- the autumn/winter is also fabulous and sitting on the beach in October is not unknown!

“A great place to stay”

My wife, 3 children (11, 9, 6) and I stayed at the Old Post Office for a week. It was a wonderful place and just as the description and photos - spacious, clean, all very straight forward. Axmouth is a good base for trips around the Jurassic Coast and South Devon. We would definitely recommend it for a party of 4-6 people of any age. We had so much to do that we never made it to either of the 2 pubs in the village. Perhaps another time.

Thank you for your comments. We are delighted to have you stay again at the cottage and hope you can make it an annual trip!
Just to point out your small 'typo' to other readers- the cottage is in Axmouth, near Seaton and Lyme Regis, not Exmouth.
Best wishes,
Richard and Julie

“Fab place”
Reviewed February 23, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Really enjoyed our weeks holiday.
Plenty of space for us, 4 adults and 2 children.
Cottage is very cosy with all the mod cons and it was nice to be left the little extras like flowers and dishwasher tablets and washing up stuff. We were close to two lovely pubs and close to lots of lovely places to visit inc beaches.
Highly recommended!
