As a family of 4 with two children, aged 8 and 5, we had a brilliant week away in this fantastic cottage. I cooked most nights and the kitchen had everything I needed to prepare and cook meals. We loved the views across the hills and its location made it easy to get to local amenities. We loved visiting Lyme Regis and West Bay for some exciting fosRead moresil hunting and the kids loved Crealy Theme Park, and Wookey Holes (if you don't mind a drive). Thank you for a lovely week!

Thank you Louise and Brian, we had a wonderful Christmas at the Sundowner cottage. The Cottage was just perfect for us. Spacious, exceptionally clean, very comfortable with beautiful far reaching countryside views. The Christmas tree and decorations were spot on. The hamper was a lovely touch! We highly recommend the Sundowner.

We stayed for 4 nights with our two kids (10yrs & 8yrs old). The Sundowner was immaculately clean and an extremely comfortable place to relax after a long day at the beach - plenty of space to lounge and the kids could go and play in the field at the back if they wanted to run around. We did a relatively short stay but the location was great as it'Read mores so close to Lyme Regis and Sidmouth where we spent most of our time. The owners were also really friendly. We had a lovely break. Hide

A perfect getaway with amazing views and beautifully decorated accommodation. Our 17 month old had the time of her life with the open space and feeding the cows. The hosts were brilliant and the little touches made the difference. Close to amenities and beaches and we look forward to visiting again.
