Holiday Rental House
We bought Kokopelli because we love the location and regularly spend time in Devon getting away from it all – It’s an incredibly relaxing place. As a couple, we both work hard and this is our bolt hole. We have 2 daughters, a cat and dog (called Moose) who also enjoys the walks around the area, be it on the many paths in and around the Donkey Sanctuary or along the coastal path to our favourite local pub, the Fountainhead (great food, drink and atmosphere!) We decided to call our cottage Kokopelli because of the happy memories it conjures up. Kokopelli is a character we came across on a holiday in Moab, Utah in the USA. Moab is a beautiful area with fantastic canyons, rock formations and vibrant colours. It is an amazing place to enjoy many outdoor activities cycling, hiking, climbing...We bought Kokopelli because we love the location and regularly spend time in Devon getting away from it all – It’s an incredibly relaxing place.

We decided to call our cottage Kokopelli because of the happy memories it conjures up. Kokopelli is a character we came across on a holiday in Moab, Utah in the USA. Moab is a beautiful area with fantastic canyons, rock formations and vibrant colours. It is an amazing place to enjoy many outdoor activities cycling, hiking, climbing, rafting. The key ingredient being fun and adventure and we hope these are just a couple of things you experience during your stay. By the way Kokopelli is a trickster character and represents the spirit of music! It is south facing so making it ideal for breakfasts and BBQs on the terrace in the sun. It is surrounded by grass so ideal for dogs and children but it is also quiet and private so equally great for couples or friends. There is wifi but it is provided by a mobile broadband and is Not suitable for streaming TV or films unless you are happy that this will use up your allocated data very quickly . We have a fair usage policy as we do not have unlimited data and allocate 25GB for each week . If a guest exceeds this allowance we have to purchase bolt ons which cost £15 for each 10 GB and this will be deducted from your deposit . We will advise you after 20GB has been used . We allow well behaved dogs but reserve the right to charge £30 if we have to pay for extra cleaning time after you have left the cottage. More

We enjoyed our stay in this well equipped cottage. It’s clean and comfortable and in a good position for visiting East Devon. It’s on the door step of the Donkey Sanctuary, which is well worth a visit or 2!!!
