What the Press say about us...
Over the years, many journalists have visited or researched Yapham Cottages. They have written articles in a number of both local and national newspapers and magazines. I hope that you find this selection of quotations informative.

In Sept, TESCO magazine and TESCO on-line ran a feature on a year in the life of a typicaL holiday cottage in Devon and SHIPLOAD Cottage was chosen. Here is some of the article:
