The cottage is lovely and Becky was very friendly and helpful. It felt like everything had been thought of and was so comfortable. There were so many toys for our 6 year old and a trampoline in the garden. We also had a 6 month old and baby soap and nappy bin were really lovely touches. The countryside is absolutely...

Management response:

Thank you for your helpful review: we love being able to accommodate families and would agree that St. Mary's is in a beautiful part of Devon, in fact in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As well as Escot, the beach at Sidmouth is only 3 miles away and both Bicton Gardens and Crealy Adventure Park are other family attractions...

Amazing hospitality, Bec and David were very helpful and the accomodation was great, very roomy and great views. Breakfasts were delicious. This is somewhere we would definitely come back to, maybe in the summer next time.

Management response:

We had a windy, rainy Christmas this year but I'm glad the weather didn't spoil your enjoyment of your stay at St. Mary's and that you found it a convenient location for meeting up with relatives. I am pleased you appreciated our award-winning breakfast, which can be enjoyed on the patio in the summer!

We recently had a lovely two night stay at St. Marys whilst we visited Sidmouth and Exmouth. It is located in the small village of Tipton St. John just a short drive away from Sidmouth. Also a short distance away is the village of Ottery St. Mary which has a supermarket and petrol station. The accommodation has everything you need...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind review. There is a garage selling petrol in the village, in fact, opposite the village shop. However, there are other supermarkets and a petrol station in Sidmouth, too, so we are within easy reach of all necessities, as well as in a good location for touring the local area, as you point out. We are...

About the neighborhood
St. Marys is located in the pretty East Devon village of Tipton St. John, at the end of a quiet residential cul-de-sac. Because of the elevated position we have lovely views across the Otter Valley to Aylesbeare Common yet we are just 6 minutes walk from the village centre, where you will find a welcoming bistro/pub, village shop and bus stops to take you to Sidmouth or Ottery St. Mary. The village is half way between these two towns and there is plenty of interesting walking along the river, through the woods or on the healthland areas.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Exeter: 9.9 mi
Railway: Feniton: 5.6 mi
Travelling from junction 29 (Exeter) of the M5, turn left onto the A30 towards Honiton. Turn off at the Daisymount junction and follow the signs for Ottery St. Mary. Follow the one-way system to the Sidmouth road (by Rosey’s Chippy). Travel through Wiggaton then at a cross-roads turn right for Tipton St. John. Follow the road down until you get to Hayne Hill on your left (The Old Smithy is on the corner). Turn into Hayne Hill and follow up the hill to a small cross-roads. Turn left into Seaway Lane then left again into Hayne Close. St. Mary's is at the end of the cul-de-sac on the left (white triple garage; solar panels on the roof). Pull in onto the parking area with the hedge to your right and the car facing the grass.
