Reviews

Beautiful interior! We had a lovely comfortable relaxed time here Beautiful property! Super clean, comfy beds, lovely location near to seaside & shops , bonus dog friendly too!

Hayley W,

Wow! what an amazing, beautiful Cottage! Really felt at home here, so did Lily our little Springer Spaniel! Next door neighbours (Ralpf+wife) really lovely and friendly too! We had lovely walks down to Oddicombe beach, met the local seal one evening laying on the steps by the fishermen. The weather was good, but we really enjoyed a lazy wet afternoon in the Cottage as so lovely and homely! Love all the ornaments and decor, really inspired and going to make similar changes to our home now!!! thank you!

Williams Family,

We've had a great time staying at Makin Memories Cottage, your home is beautiful with lots of lovely things inside. It's great location for exploring Devon. We have visited many places during our stay including Dartmouth which is lovely town, Torquay and Goodrington great beach for dogs. We even went to Lustleigh in Dartmoor where we had a fabulous lunch. A little pub called The Cleave - we would highly recommend. We are going home with great memories of this holiday.

Sawtell family,

We had a brilliant stay at Makin Memories cottage. It was a lovely property and great location. We had a great experience booking through Blue River cottages. The staff were helpful and responded to our initial enquiry even outside normal office hours. They were having some technical problems with phones the day we tried to book but they reserved the property for us for 48 hours so we didn't lose it. The communication from them was very clear and directions to property etc were very good. When we arrived at the property it was very clean with tea, coffee fresh milk and cookies awaiting our arrival which our teenage girls appreciated. The cottage itself was in a great location at the bottom of St Marychurch high street and close to shops/pubs and the bus stop if you didn't want to drive everywhere. It was clean and the decoration was lovely and you could tell it had been recently refurbished. The property had good facilities including a washer so we could do our beach towels and hang them out to dry for the following day. The courtyard garden was nice for sitting outside for breakfast or in the evening. The only slight downside of the property was that although it is set back on a private road it is close to a busy road which we probably noticed more as we live on a small cul de sac at home and don't really get many passing cars. I wouldn't let this put us off staying again. I would definitely recommend this property to anybody considering it we had a great family holiday here. Thank you Blue River Cottages.

Mrs Paula R,

We've had a lovely stay at Makin Memories Cottage. Perfect location and beautifully decorated. Would recommend Cary's Inn, on the front (look for Samy the local seal). For a nice fish dinner try Man Fridays in Torquay - amazing sea food platter!! Dartmouth is a lovely town to visit - ferry was £11.50 return. Blackpool Beach £8 per the day - is stunning beach. Thanks for letting us stay and we will definitely recommend you!
