Pilot Cottage dates back to the days of sail when it is thought to have been the pilot's lookout. It has been completely modernised to Tourist Board 4 Star standards by the present owners to provide 21st century living for up to four persons. It has a luxury fitted kitchen/diner, spacious lounge,a modern bathroom with large step-in shower and three bedrooms, one double and and two singles all on the ground floor. Off street parking is just outside your front door. Due to the size of interior doors it is not suitable for wheelchair use within the property but would suit those who use a walking frame when indoors. Electricity is by £1 and £2 coin meter. Night storage heating is free November to March; if required at other times, it is charged at £35 per week.

This ground floor maisonette is all on the level with no steps and with private, secure off road parking. Three good sized bedrooms - double and two singles - all with wardrobes, and spacious step in shower with handrail and a seat attached to the wall. Comfortable lounge furniture and very well equipped kitchen. Lots of thoughtful touches like a pint of milk in the fridge on arrival (and a bottle of wine!) and emergency spare coins for the electricity meter. The location is fabulous - looking straight across to the sea wall from kitchen window. Just around the corner from a great seafood restaurant, traditional english pub and cafe and shops, but nevertheless was very quiet. This was a real find and we had a great stay - even the weather was good!

The location was great and close to the promenade with off road parking for two cars. The cottage itself was extremely well equipped with all comforts you would have at home. We would go again!

Had a lovely week’s holiday at Christmas. The owner was so thoughtful, he had put a Christmas tree with lights in the lounge also fairy lights in the window. Box of mince pies, bottle of wine and milk in the fridge and a tiny Christmas tree on the kitchen table, it was so welcoming. The cottage is well equipped and very clean. Beds very comfortable and bathroom very modern and clean. We felt very at home there and will definitely book again. Pilot Cottage is in an ideal position for the sea front, boat trips and walking to the town and plenty of restaurants close by the cottage. We enjoyed our boat trip on Boxing Day with free mulled wine and mince pie, the Marina is just across the road. Most important was the parking facilities, plenty of room considering we were so close the the seafront. Thankyou Alfred for a lovely weeks holiday.

My family and I had another great stay at Pilot Cottage. This property is always our holiday residence when we stay in Exmouth during the summer. As always the property is great for our needs; a well equipped kitchen, a nicely furnished living space and off-street parking are provided. The location is great too, being just a stone's throw from the beach and a 10 minute walk to the town centre. The proprietors always deal with enquiries promptly and are always happy to oblige if any local knowledge is needed. I would most definitely recommend staying at this property.

We stayed in November so alot of amenities were closed, but Exmouth is beautiful, we arrived to a warm cottage, friendly owner, and a bottle of wine. The pubs and restaurants in area are lovely. Town is a 10 min walk. The cottage is amazing, and is lovely and clean and well presented

The kitchen has all the facilities you wold need including a dishwasher . The cottage is well appointed and it is so good to have parking space available. Right on the door step for the beach too. .
