“A different world”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in July 2014

Wagtail is a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Tucked away under the cliffs adjacent to the beach, you find yourself in a different world. The younger children loved searching for unusual pebbles before breakfast, we all enjoyed the walks in all directions during the day, and there are two pubs less than an hour's stagger away for those who want an evening of Devonshire culture. The roads to get there are very narrow and winding, and the waves just keep on rolling in, all night long, which really adds to the atmosphere and cosines of the place.

“A stunning place to relax and explore-we love it here!”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Wagtail is our favourite place to go on holiday in England! We have been many times and love it more each time we come. My 16 year old loved it as much as the 4 year old did (apart from the sketchy wifi-but I see this as a good thing!), and my girlfriends who came for just a night regretted not staying longer.
We love the views and the fact you wake up to the sound of the sea-this was magical for my 4 year old. It is cosy and has everything you might need. Its always been lovely and clean and really welcoming and we loved the special touch this time of a tea tray complete with choc biscuits laid out ready for us! Thank you for a much needed break!

“Gorgeous little Chalet just feet from the beach.”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Gorgeous wooden chalet, just feet from the beach..Woke up to waves each morning and looked up at the Milky Way each nite, just amazing..Lots of lovely seaside towns nearby to wander around in, Beer and Seaton were great..Chalet was fully equipped with all that we needed, but no shops close by, so bring milk and munchies in case you get caught out..Local pub Masons Arms, great food but they stop serving at 9pm, so get in early..All in all, a great little gem, right on the beach, what more could you ask for?..We loved it and would def recommend to friends

Thank you for your lovely review which will be very helpful for future guests. So glad you enjoyed our little corner of East Devon. Watching the Milky Way at night and waking up to the sound of the sea - sounds like heaven!
