The forest, surrounding the property, is a haven for wildlife and offers a range of walks straight from your front door. Tottiford, Trenchford and Kennick reservoirs are all within walking distance or a short drive away with National Trust properties nearby. Easy access onto Dartmoor highlights such as Haytor, Houndtor and Widdecombe-on-the-Moor. Visit beautiful coastal locations such as Teignmouth, Shaldon, Torquay and Dartmouth. The cathedral city of Exeter is just a 30 minute drive away or why not take a scenic railway journey there from Newton Abbot train station.

Cottage is in a perfect location, rural but with plenty to do. Accommodation was spotless and dog friendly. Walks on the door step and added benefit of an amazing games room on the farm. Hosts were helpful and provided all we needed. Will return.

We had a fantastic time at this cottage. Lovely peaceful location but easy to get out and about. Great facilities at the farm. We loved the games room and had our own cinema nights with the projector screen. Brilliant when the weather isnt being kind. Lovely walks from the site itself and very dog friendly. The owners were always on hand and were rRead moreeally friendly and helpful. Even loaned us body boards for the kids which they had a great time with. Hide

Primrose Cottage was a comfortable and cosy escape especially when the log fire was burning! The decor of the recently refurbished cottage was to a very high standard. Set in a beautiful valley with walks from the door and with easy access to attractions in Dartmoor and South coast of Devon. On arrival a cream tea was waiting for us plus a few esseRead morentials. The games room was a very inviting area too. Hide

Sarah, Ken and the dogs were extremely welcoming. The property was lovely, very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The games barn is fab! The small touches made us instantly feel at home, beautiful fresh flowers, a delicious cream tea and treats for our dog! The property is in a valley surrounded by woodland and beautiful views.

Sarah and Kenneth have done everything to make you feel welcome. The cottage is nicely furnished - comfy beds - and well equipped. The gardens are lovely, the games room amazing. Table tennis, pool, darts, books, puzzles, table games, CD, DVDs - even guitars to have a session. So no need for kids to be bored.

The cottage was very well equipped & comfortable. The owners seemed to have thought of everything, even providing plenty of wood for the log-burner. The property sits in a valley & very secluded, good walking in the area & excellent for doggie guests.

The cottage was smaller than I thought but as there was only 3 of us (plus a dog) it wasnt too bad. I think if my wife had accompanied me, it would have felt quite cramped. Its a good base to explore the region but beware that the roads around the cottage are very narrow. The newly built games barn is excellent with plenty of choice be it pool, tabRead morele football or just listening to some music. Plus the surrounding countryside is very tranquil Hide
