About the Owner

We are both Devon born and when we were growing up we used to visit Exmouth with our families for the summer holidays. We loved the countryside and sandy beaches and there were always plenty of interesting places to visit and things to do for all of the family.

Lovely quiet modern house with everything you require for a stress free self catering stay. Situated on the outskirts of Exmouth within easy reach of the town centre and other towns nearby, by car or the very regular buses. Would love to stay longer next time.

Neat & tidy house

  • 4 of 5

We are no strangers to Exmouth but as our son was getting married we felt we should not stay at his house. This house gave us just what we needed, a comfortable base not far from amenities and in a quiet area. The house is well equipped and sitting in the sunny back garden was very pleasant. The availability of wi-fi was an added bonus.

Avonlea is a lovely house with all mod cons you need short driving distance into Exmouth. I can recommend the Jurassic cruise with Stuart Line cruises a lovely trip. Exmouth beach is great too and exploring the area.

Lovely wine tea milk on arrival which was very enjoyable after car journey, nice gesture Colin and Jo.

Thanks again Nicolette Paul Oliver and Lily Gibbon

Avonlea, Exmouth

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and comfortable house on a modern housing estate located on the edge of Exmouth with good road links to all coastal attractions. Internet photos do not do the property justice. Kitchen appliances very good. Attractive rear yard, which although overlooked, still feels private and never a neighbour seen. Would certainly recommend. Best beach is Sandy Bay. Superb fish & chips at eastern end of Exmouth beach. River trip on River Exe is fun. Stunning coastline at Ladram Bay & visit Branscombe village.

Avonlea is a very comfortable and relaing home.

  • 5 of 5

Avonlea is a very comfortable and relaxing home with every amenity in a quiet road. The house was very clean and bright, beds are very comfortable and there are plenty of spare towels and linen provided. Great to have a proper sized freezer with the fridge. Weather on our first night was quite cold and windy so we needed to have the central heating on but couldn't work it out so Colin was only to happy to pop round and sort it out for us. Very handy that they live so nearby. The location of the house is excellent with Lidl and Tesco just minutes away in the car as well as Budleigh Salterton and Exmouth.

We highly recommend a visit to Otterton Mill which has a lovely restaurant with excellent food or just a coffee and snack, delicious home baked bread, a lovey gift shop. We also took a great circular walk there along the river which had lots of brown trout and signs of beaver along the bank.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Avonlea, Colin and Jo are excellent hosts and there is lots to do in the area. We look forward to returning, God willing.
