Courtyard cottage is perfectly located to enjoy Topsham, Exmouth and Exeter. It was a great place for us and our dog Lola to explore. The cottage had everything we needed and more, it was very well equiped and made my birthday celebration.The croissants were nice touch and went especially well with the nespresso coffee. I'm sure we'll visit again.
