Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A perfect paradise in South East Devon. Sept 2012.
  2. Wonderful isolated location being only about 100 metres from the coastal path. Though property is attached to the owner’s home, you have complete privacy and the owners are very pleasant people indeed. The village is easily walkable if you want to do this. The cottage appears to be heavily booked and I am not surprised! Sept 2012.
  3. We loved the cottage. It was very spacious and well equipped. The scenery is stunning and the village and its surroundings have all the elements for a great relaxing holiday. June 2012.
  4. Most beautiful property idyllically located. We can imagine it would be even more beautiful in the summer sitting by the pool. Couldn’t fault the place. Oct 2011.
  5. Monks Thatch was a lovely peaceful cottage, the accommodation was excellent and very comfortable. It was close to Ladram Bay so we could use the beach, which was great if we did not want to travel too far. The village with Otterton Mill in was great to visit. Could have had some info about where to get milk and bread and some basics in the cottage. We found out that you can get a lot at Ladram Bay, but you have to pay to use the car park. Overall a lovely holiday i would certainly go again. Aug 2011.
  6. Fabulous position, overlooking the sea, down a very quiet lane. The owners are extremely generous and very kind. July 2011.
  7. This was our 4th visit to this property. Everything was near perfect including our welcome. We are going back to the cottage for our autumnal holiday and have already booked the cottage for April and September in 2012. May 2011.
  8. Fabulous cottage and surroundings, very nice owners, be prepared to pay heating bill at the end of your holiday. April 2011.
  9. Good welcome, comfortable, well equipped, quiet and warm. Oct 2010.
  10. This property was in an excellent location and was very convenient for us with our dog. Sept 2010.
  11. We had a warm welcome and the owner was very kind and helpful. Aug 2010.
  12. Excellent location, quiet, relaxing. Just what we wanted. July 2010.
  13. Glorious setting and excellent facilities; warm welcome. April 2010.
  14. Didn’t find we required anything that was not there. Lovely location. April 2010.
  15. Peaceful hideaway. Set in beautiful gardens. Sept 2009.
  16. Very comfortable and well furnished and in a beautiful location. Sept 2009.
  17. This cottage, along with Shepherds House Cottage in Inveresk, is certainly the best of a number of cottages we have visited. Unique situation and the general setting made the week totally idyllic. A cottage which we will return to on an annual basis. April 2009.
  18. Wonderful cottage. Very helpful and friendly owners. Feb 2009.
  19. A very comfortable and well-maintained cottage in a beautiful location. March 2009.
  20. We would definitely go back. April 2009.
