A gem of a holiday cottage.


We have had another wonderful week in this beautiful cottage in delightful Seaton. Thank you so much for your hospitality. We will be back!

Adan and family,

You drive up a heart stopping perilous approach to meet on this chaotic coast this C21 gem cleverly designed to make space inside to match the space outside, with wide vistas of cliffs and estuary, and a confined, safely distant sober sea, and nearer views of rollicking rabbits. Fish and chips, pleasure trips to Lyme and elsewhere, great to be here.

Clare P,

We felt very comfortable in Holly Cottage, and really enjoyed our stay. Good for sightseeing...Forde Abbey, good meal at the Archer Barn in Sidmouth.

Tim S,

Good to be back at Holly Cottage once again, and to see Hamid and Louise.Thank you for another lovely stay!

Previous Customer,

We`ve had a lovely week in this very comfortable cottage. The views are outstanding. The binoculars were a welcome and well used addition. Lovely meals at the White Hart, Colyford. Thank you for the delicious biscuits.

Jon S,

The cottage is very comfortable, with excellent views from the property. Would recommend this cottage to anybody who is looking to visit this area.

Mr S,

Holly Cottage is a welcoming and well-equipped cottage, with beautiful country and coastal views. We enjoyed an excellent week there and would wholeheartedly recommend it to others.

Mr W,

We really enjoyed our time at Holly cottage. The location was perfect, set within a meadow, so peaceful and lots of rabbits to see! Also so close to great beaches. The property is extremely comfortable and very well equipped. It was spotlessly clean and so spacious. The sort of place you feel relaxed and at home in straightaway. Only thing I would recommend for the master bedroom is black out curtains in the summer, as it’s east facing and gets the dawn light very early! We would love to return to Holly Cottage and we’re very sad to leave.
