Lovely old lock keepers cottage in very unique location between the river and the canal. Beautiful views, great for cycling and walking or for just enjoying the location and relaxing by the wood burner.
SET CHANGEOVER OF MONDAYS AND FRIDAYS.
You are allowed to bring a dog at an extra charge of £20, but please let me know if you wish to do so. No cats, sorry.
There is no WiFi and the small television there is only for watching DVDs, there is no television connection.
The kitchen is quite well equipped, with oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, two small fridges and a very small freezer.
There are two bedrooms, one which can be with a double, twin or 3 or 4 single beds, the other bedroom is set up either with a single, a double or twin beds. So quite flexible bed arrangement and you need to tell me which set up you want.
The cottage is NOT in Topsham, but on the other side of the river from Topsham. The cottage is located a 10 min walk from the nearest car access (end of Station Road, Exminster), which is also where you park. Right by the cottage is a ferry landing for the little ferry, which sails across the river to Topsham between about 10am and 5 pm from April to end of September, tides allowing. For most of the winter it operates on weekends.
Some winters the road through the marshes to the car park floods for a few days. Rarely has this been a problem for cottage guests but it has happened, however, either it's been arranged for the guests to have bikes (cycle path does not flood) or they have left early - fully refunded. Please ask further if this is something which concerns you.
Interaction with guests
I may be able to pick up supermarket shop (Waitrose, ordered over internet by you) and take it to the cottage so ready for you when you arrive.
Other things to note
Due to the very close proximity of both canal and river water, you need to consider carefully if it will work for you to bring children who are not able to swim.
