Unusual to find such a spacious, well-equipped property for two. Lovely having a separate kitchen, and the wet room was amazing! Good food at the Walnut Tree and near to the Fleet Air Arm Museum - well worth a visit!

We had a lovely time at Polo Cottage; the owner was there to greet us and made us feel very welcome. The property was clean and everything that we could have needed was provided. We visited Ham Hill which was close by and had wonderful views of the surrounding area; it seemed a popular place to visit.

Cottage lovely, everything we needed. Stone wall to the garden was waist height but was to high for our mastiff to get over. The carpet has been removed from the bedroom and replaced with slate and under floor heating, so much better to clean with the dogs. Very well equipped property.

We really enjoyed our stay in polo cottage. Well kept property, central location, easy to find and plenty of room. We would recommend staying there. The eggs were a nice touch as well.

Everything we need was available. The cottage is in a wonderful location and would have loved to have stayed there longer. We struggled a bit with the cooker controls and had to resort to reading the manuals (:-)) but got there in the end. Would definitely recommend the pub in Queen Camel than the one nearby, but the 2 mile walk is both pleasant anRead mored perfect after a great meal. Hide

Had a lovely stay at Polo Cottage with our dog. Sarah was very welcoming and left a box of fresh eggs from her hens with us (very tasty). The living/dining area was lovely, with very high ceilings to give a lovely spacious feel. The wet-room shower was fabulous.
