“Excellent location, lovely hosts, perfect holiday!”
Reviewed September 1, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Many thanks to Pat and Alfred for being so welcoming and providing the perfect location to stay and explore Exmouth. We booked for one week for four people and there was enough room for everyone. Everything you need is provided including information about what to do in the area to emergency coins for the electricity, which runs cheaply even when using the washing machine. It is quiet and comfortable and everything is clean and up to date. It is very easy to access the beach, with fishing and crabbing opportunities nearby.The marina is just around the corner and the town centre for all shopping needs is a short walk away. Local transportation is also easy to access, so no car is required, we came by train. We will definitely visit Exmouth again and with any luck be able to stay at Pilot Cottage!

“Absolutely Lovely Cottage In A Perfect Location.”
Reviewed March 28, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We have visited family many times in Exmouth over the years and stayed in a few accommodations but The Pilot Cottage has been the best to date.
The cottage is extremely clean,very homely,close to town and a stones throw from the beach.
I would totally recommend The Pilot Cottage to anyone visiting the area.

Thank-you Alfred hope to see you again later this year.

“Pilot Cottage, Exmouth for a traditional seaside holiday”
Reviewed October 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Pilot Cottage has a large living room, a good size, eat-in kitchen and three comfortable bedrooms. We liked the large living room which gave space for everybody to do their own thing and the separate kitchen which is both large enough to eat in and is well provisioned with high quality equipment and utensils.
Pilot Cottage is quite close to the harbour and train station and is, therefore, convenient for taking boat trips, train journeys and walks along the Exe estuary while being only a short distance from the town centre and the beach.
I first came to Exmouth more than 17 years ago and like it both as a traditional seaside town and because there is a good variety of attractions within easy travelling distances. For nature lovers there are several estuarine and inland nature reserves and the surrounding countryside itself is, of course, very attractive.

“Great accommodation for Exmouth”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our 4th year staying at pilot cottage and we have already booked again for next year. Great amenities within the cottage with all essentials covered, with lovely kitchen and in an excellent location. Spacious lounge so that on the odd rainy day our two boys (5&6 yrs) have room to play without getting cabin fever!
