We all had a wonderful holiday, the cottage is a delightful place to be. We all look forward to our next holiday in the Malt House.

Previous Customer,

10th August - Lovely place, Colyton has so much to offer. The cottage is ideal with plenty of room. Garden and well fitted out kitchen. We would love to come back.

The Luits Family,

2nd September - The Cottage was ideal for our family and the dogs. Great cottage. Perfect garden and an excellent location. We had a lovely holiday and would definitely come back.

The May Family,

Sept 9th - Our second visit for this cottage was met with stormy weather, so it was good to come home to a cozy and well equipped cottage at the end of the day. An interesting village to explore, and good food at the Kingfisher pub (which gets so busy so booking may be necessary)
