We have been coming to Devon /East Prawle for decades but Foss cottage is one of the best places we have stayed at. An amazing retreat from busy life.

The Gould family, 1-8 July 2016
Had a wonderful holiday, very peaceful apart from 2 noisy 4-year-olds and a 17-month-old toddler. Thought no tele would be a problem for them but they did not miss it at all. Lots of small beaches to explore and we all had lots of fun. One of the best places to stay as a family as lots of room to read and play.

The Edwards family, August 2016
Foss Cottage is like a dream escape from modern life. Our children were enchanted by the garden and it was wonderful to be overlooking the sea. We thought your books were fantastic and could have stayed a few months to read them all! It’s been a wonderful family break from technology too. We have been coming to this area for many years and it was simply wonderful staying in the cottage.

The Macarthur family, 20 August to Sept 7
This is a wonderful location. Beautiful views. Friendly village, good pub, excellent weather. Best equipped kitchen of any hire cottage we’ve used. Bathroom needs new WHB and better fitting loo seat!

The Sibley family Sept 16
This was Rosemary Sibley’s first family holiday. We are so glad we chose Foss Cottage as it’s so homely and welcoming in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. Thank you for letting us enjoy your wonderful holiday home.

Couldn’t ask for more from a location.

June 2015 We visited Foss cottage after staying in a nearby smaller cottage over many years so we knew what to expect from East Prawle and the fantastic views over the Channel and were not disappointed. A truly lovely place to relax, unwind and get away from the rat race. If you cant enjoy yourself without Wifi, TV, radio or phone signals, then this is probably not the place for you, but if you are happy to read, walk, watch the boats go by and listen to LPs ranging from jazz, swing, classical, 1950s, 1960s , 1970s compilations etc, you will love it . Wifi available in the Pigs Nose Inn in the village

April 2015 We’ve just spent a wonderful sunny Easter here with 4 adults and 4 children. The great thing about this place is there is something to suit everyone. The teenagers were happy wandering up the quiet lane to the village to play on the green or hang out in the garden. The cottage has the most amazing views over the fields to the sea and is very peaceful at the end of a row of cottages so private yet not isolated. I have been staying here since I was a child and now bring my teenage children here. I love it as much as ever – and the best thing is that they love it as much as me!

March 2015 I stayed here with small children and it was the perfect place for an easy holiday. Wonderful beaches all around, and also a cottage with space inside and out where we could relax and sunbathe while the children played happily. There is an orchard with swing and trampoline plus a slightly bumpy sloping place for family football. I’d like to come back to do some serious walking one day!

A family of 11 from Essex, August 2014. Our sixth visit to East Prawle and our second stay at Foss. As beautiful and perfect as we remembered. Wonderful weather all week. We enjoyed introducing our grandchildren aged 13 months and 2 to Lannacombe, Gara Rock and all the magical rocky coves between, (They also loved the trampoline). We all fitted in – not a squash! The Welchs We have had a fantastic holiday in this wonderful cottage…As well as enjoying the local beaches – kayaking in the River Dart from Dittisham and mackerel fishing from Salcombe were highlights.

Sam and Andy, 22/05/2014 Weather Fab! Foss Fab (as always) Can’t wait for next year! Helen and Oscar So nice to see the sea in all its moods. Hope to be back.

21 June 2013 A fantastic return visit, new bathroom a major addition. Lannacombe, Beesands, Slapton; all the old favourites delivered again… We’ll be back.

28 June 2013 Fab time @ Foss Cottage. Spotted a barn owl in the orchard. Loved the coastal walks. ..P.S. Great record collection!

The March family, Aug-Sept 2013: “They whooped at the trampoline, swung on the swings and ascended to the lookout bench [in the garden] by the vertical route. Then they went indoors, counted the beds, marvelled at the shower, found books, games and gazed in awe at the beach equipment…We had glorious weather all week.

Gillian Sept 2013 Had a wonderful week here. Mix of sun and rain but enjoyed it all. House has been very nicely improved without changing character – well done! See you all again soon Chris, Stockport, November 2013 Wild and remote – a lovely retreat from city life! Found the cottage access nerve-wracking but the view was worth it! Hope to be back to explore the coastline further and enjoy the cosiness of Foss.
