Reviews of The Hutch and The Burrow

"Chloe’s place was WONDERFUL. We immediately at home and it had everything we needed. We wish we were staying for so much longer! The Hutch is set in the most beautiful and peaceful location, but it is a super short drive to Exeter, too. Chloe was so accommodating and so generous in providing us with a lot of extra little touches. It truly was a home away from home. Thank you so much for a lovely stay."

"The Hutch was lovely! We would highly recommend The Hutch, it had everything that we needed and more. The location is perfect for Dartmoor walks but yet close enough to Exeter for pubs, restaurants and shops. There were guides for us which were perfect for inspiration for our walks and we loved all the added extras. This is a luxurious, modern, cosy and spotless place to stay.​"

"Lovely garden view apartment. Easy to find with the instructions provided. Chloe is superb host, she came to meet us even though it was around 6pm, when we arrived and raining. Apartment had everything we needed. Our daughter loved playing with the toys provided. The view from the patio is amazing. We will definitely book again."

"My husband and I have just returned from staying in The Burrow whilst house hunting in the area. We will definitely re visit in the future because after a warm welcome from Chloe we were shown into a tastefully decorated, exceptionally clean, well equipped and homely apartment with stunning views. A really comfortable home away from home. The little extras such as milk, butter and conserves in the fridge and a selection of cereals for breakfast as well as a very delicious box of biscuits added to the welcome. The Burrow is set in beautiful countryside but is also very accessible with both main roads nearby and Exeter only about 15 minutes away. I highly recommend The Burrow as a lovely place to stay."

"The best Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in, the hosts were so welcoming and made the Hutch so lovely to stay in. Would 100% stay here again and recommend to anyone coming to the area. Also brilliant location for getting around to the surrounding areas."

"The Burrow is a lovely, modern place to stay, set in a beautiful part of Devon. Waking up to those views made a nice change! Couldn’t ask for anything else and even at this time (covid), you can tell the attention to detail is there. Chloe is a friendly and attentive host who is there if you need her and makes you feel very welcome. Longdown is quickly accessed from Exeter with easy links to the moors and the coastal towns so makes it a great option for a trip to Devon. Amazing pub down the road, too! Would definitely return."

"We would thoroughly recommend staying at The Burrow if you'd like a place to fully recharge, replenish and to connect with nature. The views are beyond stunning and we recommend watching the sun rise/set out the living room glass doors. Chloe provides little touches to make everything very warm and inviting. She is also easily on hand for any questions and checked in to see how we were. I really cannot recommend this place enough. We are thinking of returning for some more peaceful getaways, and hoping this places becomes a staple in our UK getaways."

"The Burrow provided us with the perfect little escape that we so desperately needed - it was so quiet, peaceful and done to a high standard. Becoming new parents in the middle of a pandemic was stressful and we needed a chance to get away and relax. The view from the patio were stunning and we enjoyed sitting out with a hot drink during our little boys nap times! Chloe was a fantastic host too and the communication was brilliant :)"

"Our stay at The Burrow was fantastic! The accommodation was well equipped for everything we needed, from immaculate finishes to the homely touches. A few of the lovely touches included a selection of breakfast options, fresh milk from the local farm and a bottle of wine on arrival. Everything was sparkling clean and COVID-19 provisions were taken. The outside area was perfect for a coffee in the morning, overlooking spectacular country views. Communication throughout our stay was excellent and Chloe & Alan were always on hand to answer any questions. The location is perfect, placing you close the National Park, coastal walks, local towns and Exeter city centre. There’s also a local pub about a minute walk down the road that serves amazing food! It’s definitely worth a visit! While it may be connected to the house, the property feels completely private and like your own country getaway. We would highly recommend The Burrow!"

Sarah, UK, September 2020

"One of the best Airbnb’s we stayed at! Everything that we could possibly need or want during our stay was there. Highly recommended if you’re travelling with a small child; a travelcot was already set up for us and a high chair which made our lives so much easier. There were even toys, books, plates, cups, cutlery and bibs provided for our 1 year old. We would highly recommend staying here and hope to come back some day!"

"We had an amazing time staying at The Hutch. Our host, Chloe, was very approachable, attentive and helpful without being intrusive. The location was great and close to Dartmoor and Exeter. The supermarket was a 10 minute drive away, but the pub was only a 2 minute walk so no complaints here. The apartment is lovely. The decor is very stylish and it’s clear that Chloe takes pride in the property. The apartment contains everything you could need- a brand new washer/dryer, magazines, books, walking maps and tourist info to name a few. No dishwasher, however the tree views when washing the dishes makes this chore a little more pleasant. Everything is spotlessly clean. Small touches such as home made cakes upon arrival, baby toys for our daughter and a change of towels part way through our stay made everything that much nicer."

"The Hutch is a peaceful, pastoral refuge not so far from the action of Exeter and the many delights of Dartmoor. We had a marvellous three nights there. The modern & cheerful decor was most welcome - many of the accommodations we had on our tour of Britain were old and creaky (not that there's anything wrong with that, but this made a very nice contrast). The hosts were very quick to respond if we had any needs or questions and when we look back on this magnificent trip we will smile to recall Chloe and her family. We shall return as soon as we can!"

"We had six glorious days at 'The Hutch' and would strongly recommend this lovely spot to anyone. Chloe is an amazingly responsive and hospitable host. The Hutch is a lovingly appointed, modern, sparkling clean and private stand-alone structure on their family property. The appliances and television are brand new and the decor is modern and very pleasing. The internet connection is very good and very fast. The spot definitely has a 'five-star' look and feel. The location is about 10-15 minutes from the Exeter city center, but the gorgeous view from the deck is tranquil Devon countryside and farmland. Dartmoor is about 15 minutes away in the opposite direction. The property is close to the A30/M5 for easy access. We had rented properties all over the world for the last 15 years and this ranks among the best. Thank you, Chloe, for making such a lovely spot available."

"The Hutch is a stylish, self-contained, and high-end guest suite that offers excellent amenities, and a homely atmosphere. It's beautiful rural setting makes it hard to believe that you're only 3 miles from Exeter's amenities, nightlife, and transport links. Ideal for those looking to dip their toes into rural living, without sacrificing modern comforts of home. The local area is beautiful, and ideal for long walks down country lanes and public footpaths. Chloe and Al are excellent hosts, and made us feel very welcome. We wouldn't hesitate staying at the Hutch again the next time we're in Devon."

Anthony, UK, June 2018​

"The Hutch is an amazing place! It is just the perfect place to rest after a hiking day is the moors nearby. Chloe and Alan are very welcoming and designed a really stunning little cottage. It is perfectly located to drive around the region and go hiking to Dartmoor. We had a really great time there!"

Arnaud and Julie, France, May 2018

"The Hutch is the perfect gateway to where modern meets country. Our stay was so comfortable and warm. The hutch is very light filled and inviting! We loved the views over the country fields and the binoculars and little bird guide books were handy and we enjoyed our mornings and afternoons watching them! The hutch was very well equipped for meals in, and gives you a feeling of being away from it all - yet the town is just a very short drive away! Amenities are well functioning and modern, perfect heating in the whole place, and loved all the info in the book about how to use everything and local tips! We loved the hutch so much we wished we could move in! It was a pleasure to wake up to and a pleasure to return to after a long day out! Chloe and Alan are excellent hosts who practice the perfect balance of privacy and interaction. Thank you both for such a wonderful stay!"
