Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Moxhayes Cottage is quite a large family cottage based 10-15 minutes from the nearest town of Chard (which contains pubs, take aways, supermarkets and fuel) and from a lovely little farm shop (on the way to Chard) which has good quality cheap meat. It’s quite far out so the use of a car is essential, the nearest places to visit are around 30-45 minutes away, these include Lyme Regis (a seaside place) and Exertor which is a bigger town and has a bowling alley (with sky sports and arcade). Monkey World is 2.5hours to the east of the property and is worth a visit as it’s a wonderful day out and not over charged (admission, food or giftshop). Animals are allowed but you will be visited daily by the two owners dogs (Toby and Mills) who love to play fetch and are friendly. Loads of leaflets are available at the cottage so you can find locations of near and far places to visit. It’s an ideal location if you wish to visit both Devon, Cornwall and Dorsit during your stay. Two bedrooms, one with a twin and one with a large bunk bed. The upstairs bedroom has steep unique stairs and roof windows, it does get hot at night so open windows in the day is a must. All in all, the holiday was refreshing, relaxing and easy. March 2012.
  2. Lots of room well laid out. July 2010.
  3. Good location to the country and the beach. Owners very friendly and a thought with the welcome pack. Open space outside the cottage. Clean inside. Stairs a little concerning, not suitable for all. Would certainly go there again. April 2010.
  4. The cottage was spacious, comfortable and welcoming, it had everything we needed for our home from home feeling. Sept 2009.
  5. The owners were very friendly and offered suggestions for places to visit locally along with advice on walks. May 2009.
  6. Moxhayes is a great holiday getaway. Set in a tranquil part of the East Devon countryside but near enough to places of interest and the jurrassic coast. The accommodation is cosy and comfortable and the owners and their dogs are lovely and very welcoming!! The cottage is cosy, clean and very comfortable. This wasn’t our first visit and certainly won’t be the last! The owners are helpful and friendly but never intrusive. Everything you need for a enjoyable holiday is provided. July 2009.
  7. Had a great holiday and have always used Country Holidays and found you get exactly as described and have never been let down yet. Oakbank brilliant and swimming pool icing on the cake! Thank you. May 2009.
  8. Comfortable cottage and lovely views from patio/garden. Friendly welcome from resident dogs. June 2009.
  9. The owners were a lovely couple, we had a welcome tray and they had even provided us with a pint of milk so we could have a much needed cup of tea on arrival. The accommodation was first class, extremely comfortable and clean. Bed linen and towels were provided and even tea towels. The scenery was fantastic and our dog was in doggy heaven, complete freedom and the owners dogs, Toby and Mills to play with. It was better than we could have wished for and was extremely sad to leave on our last day, we have some wonderful memories and we will go back again, it was fantastic, and two smashing owners who made us feel welcome, we have been home only a week and miss it already everything, the cottage, the scenery and our dog is missing his two friends and we miss them too, we would 100% recommend Moxhayes cottage to anyone, a brilliant retreat and a recharge of the batteries. Sept 2008.
  10. The setting is ideal - very remote and tranquil, surrounded by fields and greenery - yet 20 - 40 minutes drive takes you to beautiful places such as Lyme Regis, Sidmouth and Beer. July 2008.
  11. Nice quiet cottage off the beaten track, a good hidey hole away from the crowd with excelent rural views. Ideal for visiting both the coast and inland easily. Oct 2008.
  12. Very welcoming on arrival and very enjoyable stay. The cottage was comfortable and cosy. Oct 2007.
  13. Moxhayes is situated in a beautiful part of the East Devon countryside perfect for dogs and walkers alike! On arrival we were met by the owner and shown around the property although this was our 2nd time here!!! There was a lovely Welcome Basket filled with tasty goodies for us to enjoy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cosy cottage and it won’t be the last time we visit!! April 2007.
