“Cosy retreat in perfect location”
Reviewed April 3, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Delightful cottage a stones throw from Topsham's centre. All essentials for a comfortable stay with some personal touches. Excellent communication with host who was very accommodating. Parking is tight and if you have a larger car it may be best to use one of the nearby public car parks which offer free parking after shopping hours. Topsham is a great place to stay and at Exeter Cottage you are close to all the town has to offer.

Thanks for your great review glad and your parking tips! Small/medium cars are fine, but alternatively the parking by the station is very reasonable (currently £2.30 per day), and very close to the cottage.

“Perfect holiday cottage”
Reviewed October 23, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Good location in the centre of delightful Topsham. Parking for small cars only! Cottage ideal for a couple with accommodation for two children in bunk beds as well.
Cosy and comfortable.

“Great location”
Reviewed October 12, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Our stay at Exeter cottage was very enjoyable. Good location for trains & buses to Exeter, Exmouth, Newton Abbot etc.. also nice walks in the Topsham area. Topsham itself has plenty of restaurants & pubs for food if you don't want to cook. The cottage was comfortable with a good size lounge & bedroom. Parking could be a little tricky if you have a large car, we have a Ford fiesta which was quite easy to park, anything bigger could be a problem. All in all we had a lovely week.

“Lovely place, Lovely cottage. Very central!”
Reviewed March 27, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Lovely place, lovely cottage. Very central! Topsham is a great spot, with easy access by car, boat or train to lots of other nice spots. The cottage is really easy to get to and very central.

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed March 8, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed for three nights and the cottage was ideal. It is in a very good, central location and is warm and comfortable. Can't say much about the cooking facilities as we only used the microwave and kettle! The only downside (hence 4 stars) was that there really was not enough room to park our car (Honda Civic) without blocking off part of next door's drive. We parked instead on the car park by the hall on Fore Street which is free between 5.00 pm and 9.00 am. But we understand that parking is a luxury in Topsham!! Would definitely recommend the accommodation especially if you have a small car!

We as a couple found our stay at Exeter Cottage a great time. It was clean comfortable and well equipped.
Only a couple of issues personal to us as a couple were the steep steps to bedroom and downstairs toilet. It could do with a better shower installed over bath. Outside seating area needs addressing to be able to sit and have drinks.
Parking would be an issue but we arrived by train which was convenient.
The cottage is great for Topsham, with shops, restaurant, with train and bus stop being near by.

“Perfect cottage - Perfect Location”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Great cottage in lovely location in heart of Topsham. Everything was as described and we wanted for nothing. Cottage was clean on arrival and well equipped. Really looking forward to returning.
