This was such a home from home. Really well equipped and with good quality furniture and kitchen items. Especially liked the squashy new patio furniture. Upstairs sitting room had lots of character and great views. Lovely rural location and beautiful gardens. Deck was a real suntrap. Tea rooms opposite were very handy! All in all we were very pleasRead moreed and felt privileged to have been trusted with what appeared to be the owners' private family retreat. Hide

The garden and surrounding area are absolutely beautiful. We pretty much stayed at the house and garden all weekend. Walked down to the waterfall one late afternoon in the sunshine and it really was amazing. Would throughly recommend to anyone who just wanted time out away from it all. Just saw one or two cars a day!!

Great Easter holiday with the extended family. Penty of room for everyone and everything we needed supplied in the cottage. Wonderful gardens and fantastic walks. A great location to explore the area.

Beautiful House in the middle of nowhere. Great for relaxation, walking and enjoying the garden and stream. The owner has left it as a home so you really feel like a guest in a cosy environment. Milk and mince pies on arrival to get us over our long trip. Nice touch. Will definitely visit again

Everything about this cottage was perfect. I can honestly say this was the best cottage we have ever stayed in. We are going to look for a place in Devon and will be rebooking this cottage as a base for our search when it happens. I have already recommended it to several friends. I cannot rate it highly enough 10 stars would not do this justice.
