“All the comforts of home and the seaside on your doorstep.”
Reviewed 8 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

person found this review helpful

From the two car space parking on the doorstep to the bright and sunny kitchen Pilot Cottage lived up to our expectations. The cottage is very well equipped throughout, with even a wheel chair to borrow if you require one. Just ask the owners, who really have, we think, thought of everything.
There is now a new double bed which is firm and very comfortable.
We found having the town a short walk away, and the seafront, harbour and marina just across the road, an added bonus for the family members who could not walk too far.
One point made by the fisherman in our party was that the freezer was big enough to keep any fish caught until you go home.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and look forward to coming back.

“A comfortable cottage where you can relax close to the sea”
Reviewed 19 September 2012 for a stay in March 2012

My Husband, disabled Mother, friend and I have stayed here on numerous occasions and have recommended it to friends as a place where you can relax in comfort with a modern, well equipped, spacious kitchen. The owners are obliging, friendly and obviously try to cater for people in general.

“Great value for off-season break for the over 55's!”
Reviewed 9 September 2012 for a stay in November 2011

For the past ten years or so my wife Patricia and and I have made an out of season, usually November, trip to Exmouth, enjoying the quiet luxury of in independant stay at Pilot Cottage. Special rates for one couple, over 55 ( we sure are!!) in this part of the year make it possible for us to relax and enjoy the Exe estuary, Exmouth beaches, the coast along to Budleigh, excursions down to Plymouth etc, taking any rough weather in our stride. Mr and Mrs Woods are the most welcoming of owners, helpful when needed but otherwise invisble.
