This cosy Upside down cottage was extremely warm and welcoming. In an excellent location we were near to Sidmouth, Seaton, Beer, Lyme Regis and the lovely Donkey Sanctuary. Found it a struggle for such a late check in and check out, as my husband has health issues which means an early start isn't good for him, so we ended up leaving the afternoon before to avoid any complications. Loved the flowers, wine biscuits and milk so much appreciated. There was no washing tablets so we couldn't use the washing machine and the dining room chairs were very lumpy, but we used cushions. All in all a lovely break in a beautiful village, which is quiet and peaceful.
