Comments from guests

The Lively Hope is an imaginatively designed, spacious open-plan cottage that sleeps 4-6 comfortably in three separate bedrooms, with a ground floor shower room and a separate upstairs bathroom with roll-top cast iron bath. The property is well-equipped and has constant hot water, underfloor heating, and a dishwasher and washer-dryer. The main rooms enjoy outstanding views over the Exe estuary.

The accommodation comprises:


Entrance hall with stairs and understair shower room and toilet.

Spacious open plan living room with extensive river views, open fire, sitting area with TV/DVD player, and light and airy conservatory opening to the small riverside walled garden (ideal for eating out in fine weather). An ancient (and still very productive) vine that has been in the property for decades provides shade in the conservatory as well as grapes during summer and autumn.

The galley/kitchen off the conservatory is well-equipped, with cooker, fridge, dishwasher and microwave.

Just off the galley/kitchen, ‘The Hide’ is a riverside study and occasional bedroom with daybed that converts to a double bed. The river views from ‘The Hide’ are magnificent!

Another bedroom, ‘The Cabin’ leads off from the main living area. This wood-panelled bedroom has twin beds, built in cupboards, and a travel cot.


Stairs lead to the ‘The Sail Loft’, a spacious, sloped-ceiling master bedroom with outstanding and extensive views across the Exe to the Haldon Hills.

There is an adjoining bathroom with a roll-top cast iron bath and toilet.
