“A wonderful find, a pleasant stay.”
Reviewed November 19, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Wow, this was our first stay in a cottage, and what a wonderful find.
The pictures on the website Immediatly attracted us to Hydrangea Cottage, its destination within the town was a major attraction too, we were concerned about parking, but the cottage has a car port, we were already expecting one daughter to turn up, but our other daughter also appeared, 2 small cars fitted together in the car port and our 4wd parked behind....result!
On arrival the cottage was warm, supplies of milk, orange juice, fresh baked bread, tea, coffee, sugar had been left by the landlady (Liz).
She also left white wine and a cream tea.
The cottage was very clean and well equipped with everything you would ever need in a home.
The beds were comfortable and bedding was freshly laundered, smelt lovely.
We bought our poorly, grumpy 3yr old grandson with us, who was homesick within an hour of being there, but all that changed when he saw the toys, especially the train sets and the DVDs, this was his first stay with us and he seemed to thoroughly enjoy his mini holiday, weather was wet, but he was content to stay in all day.
The rooms were such a good size, we were even able to leave the train sets out for the duration of our stay, with out any of us falling over them
There was plenty of information relating to the area, places to visit, places to eat..
The beach was within walking distance as was the town.
We thanked Liz for our stay and we will definitely be returning to Hydrangea Cottage next year.

“Enjoyable Stay”

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at Hydrangea Cottage. Our 5 year old loved the wide selection of games and we appreciated the welcome package. Warm, comfortable and only a 10 minute walk from the beach. My only suggestion would be a deep clean is required after what must have been a busy season. All in all, we would stay here again.

“Lovely place in a charming town”
Reviewed July 25, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent a fantastic time in Seaton in our cottage. The place is spacious and conveniently located in the town centre. Service provided for handover and in between was outstanding and effortless to us. Our four kids loved the TV and DVD collection in particular ;) Excellent place to stay for a large family. We would love to come again.

“Clean, airy, modern, and family-friendly!”
Reviewed May 4, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We came across this cottage via a Google search for 'child-friendly cottages in Devon'. We were visiting Seaton during an extended May bank holiday, as our toddler is train-mad! The Seaton tramway and Pecorama both provided great day trips to occupy the family, and we weren't disappointed. Hydrangea Cottage is a great place for families to stay. We only needed 2 of the 3 bedrooms but at only £80 per night, we weren't bothered that it was bigger than we needed. Bunk room was perfect for our 2 year old who was happy enough sleeping on the bottom bunk. My husband and I took the spacious double next door. There was a travelcot available as well as a toddler blowup bed, although we didn't use these. Highchair available too. Lots of toddler toys provided, including games, DVDs and books. We took our own bits from home but he didn't play with them at all - just the ones provided at the cottage! The massive wooden train set was a real hit!! Liz, the owner, left groceries for our arrival which was really helpful (bread, milk, cream tea, wine, biscuits etc) as well as household items like toilet rolls, washing up liquid etc, so there really isn't much need to bring anything yourself, especially if like us you intend to eat out most days. Only downside was the lack of a stairgate (bearing in mind this cottage is clearly aimed at families with young children). The owner suggested we drag the travelcot across the landing at night to block off the stairway, which we did, and this worked fine for us although it is a bit of a faff. As I say, it didn't end up being much of a problem for us, but it would give young families that extra peace of mind. Overall, a great base for young families to explore Seaton and the surrounding areas. 5 min walking distance to town shops, beach and tramway. Would definitely recommend and return if holidaying down this way again in the future.

“Perfect Break”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We have just returned from a mini break in Seaton.
We were impressed with the cottage which was cosy, airy and very relaxing. The cottage is located close to the town centre but so peaceful we could have been miles from anywhere! The weather was kind to us and we enjoyed lots of walks and lots of fish and chip suppers!!
Liz (owner) had left us a nice welcome package - bread, scones, cream, jam, wine which was a lovely touch. We definitely want to re-book soon!!

Beautiful house, tastefully decorated and plenty of essential provisions. There were games for the children and adults, a good selection of books, and a CD and DVD player.
The house was very centrally located near the shops, pubs and seafront and yet it .was very quiet.
The parking at the back was very useful because parking on the street is restricted. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would recommend Hydrangea Cottage unreservably!
