A lovely cottage. Very clean and comfortable. But note that the stairs are very steep and the bathroom and toilet have restricted head height. The shower is challenging for tall people!

A wonderful stay at Cider Steps. The cottage offered everything we could have needed. The location was perfect as all our day trips were within 15 to 30 minutes. Our eldest daughter who is 3 years old loved the farm, animals and climbing frame. A perfect holiday. Thank you so much.

Lovely, clean a comfortable cottage. Children loved staying on a farm and seeing all the animals, the horses were a firm favourite. The play area was excellent and little extras like the go carts were really enjoyed.

Accommodation is comfortable and homely. Peace and quiet. Perfect for a complete unwind or close enough for the occasional trip to the seaside or shopping in Exeter.

We had a lovely holiday. The cottage is in a great position for beaches and lots to do. The cottage was comfortable, but the single duvets were 13.5 tog and 100% polyester, not suitable for the summer. There were lots of flies as the cottage is on a farm.
