About Leticia Vaughan

My husband has lived in Budleigh Salterton all of his life, and I come from neighbouring Exmouth. We live in Budleigh Salterton, only 5 minutes walk away from the Cottages, with our three young children.

Leticia Vaughan purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Leticia Vaughan chose Budleigh Salterton

The cottages were converted from old barns, thought to have been originally used as farm buildings, but were just used as storage over the last 50 years.

We completed the conversions in March 2014.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful week we had in your beautiful Starfish Cottage! Five star only begins to describe the superb facilities you have provided for your guests - everything that anyone could ask for. All in a private and enclosed area faced by the other two cottages with a wonderful south- facing and a delightful garden , complete with bamboo and olive trees !! We could feel the warm sun of the French Riviera on our faces. However just a short stroll revealed the beautiful curve of Budleigh beach with its smooth pebbles and the clean blue waters of the English Channel.

Budleigh itself provides a lively high street with a huge variety of shops of all sorts, and lots of beautiful eating places. A cosy pub and your own wine emporium are the icing on the cake. We cannot recommend your cottage development highly enough and we all are looking forward to a return visit next year.

Superb Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Starfish Cottage is the most fantastic place to stay for many reasons. It is beautifully decorated, super comfy beds, quality linens, modern bathrooms and all the home from home things you might need.

We chose it for the excellent location....just behind the High Street and literally round the corner from the sea front! We had a lovely week and could have stayed much longer! Heres to the next time 😀

Gorgeous coastal cottages, friendly and helpful owner, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The cottages themselves are beautifully appointed, with lovely furnishings, a well supplied kitchen (including tea and coffee making supplies, a bottle of milk and a bottle of wine), and located very close to the beach and the High Street. We will definitely book again.

This is our second visit and we stayed in Starfish Cottage - it was fabulous!

The accommodation is beautifully furnished, extremely clean, has all the amenities you could want, off street parking and a superb position just one street back from the beach!

We love Budleigh Salterton too and can't wait to return!

What a lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

This really is a lovely place. My partner and I stayed for the Bank holiday weekend with my brother and his wife. Leticia the owner has created a beautifully furnished and equipped cottage. The layout is great too with the two double bedrooms being at opposite ends of the property. Highly recommended and we will definitely be visiting again. Budleigh Salterton is a lovely place too with the cottage a minutes walk from the seafront and the high street. Perfect!

A Truly Luxurious Holiday Cottage

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived to the moment we HAD to leave. We loved it at Starfish Cottage. The pictures can't do justice to how stunning these cottages are. There are so many little details that have been thought through. Which enable you to relax in such comfort! The beds are big & comfy with fresh hotel linen. Big fluffly bath towels. Beautiful big kitchen, with everything you need at hand, plenty of room to eat inside & out. Handy washing machine, cleverly tucked away. Big bedrooms, with walkin closets! And ensuites! Nice comfortable sofas and chairs. Pretty landscaped shared garden. Beautifully light and airy with high windows & lovely architecture. The two bedrooms are at either end of Starfish Cottage. (So you don't feel/or hear your kids right next door!) TV's & integral DVD players in lounge & both bedrooms. And free Wi-Fi (every parent of teenagers knows how essential this is!) I could go on... But I think you've got the picture, basically, we didn't want to leave (ever!) Letitia was lovely & very kind to our very excited children. We will definitely be going back. This is such a rare find & the price is so good, affordable - kind for families in the holidays. Budleigh Salterton is a beautiful town, lots of bargains to be had in the many shops (particularly in the charity shops - which have some great stock) & the many boutique shops & wonderful ice cream from The Creamery! The beach is beautiful, lovely for swimming, fishing, kayaking. Framed by huge red cliffs one end, pastel beach huts, good cafés and the estuary (which provides) rock pools, lovely river walks/paddling, along the River Otter at the end. Exmouth is just 10 minutes away, if you want sand & some children's amusements. These cottages are really a rare find. You won't regret booking any of them, as they all have their own unique layout & stamp, but the same luxurious quality. They provide a perfect base for you to explore so many beautiful places nearby. Knowing that you have somewhere lovely to return home to. Well done Letitia - you have created such a beautiful secret sanctuary, perfect for couples or families, a truly luxurious getaway.

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband just spent a wonderful few days in Lobster Cottage, we were so delighted with how lovely it was, finished beautifully and it had everything we needed.

I can honestly say I haven't slept in a more comfortable bed and without a doubt we will be visiting again.

Letitia was great to deal with and it's clear she has a great eye for detail as the cottage is bright and fresh and most important so comfortable.
