Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Location was very good only 10 miles to Plymouth Buckfast Abbey. Just down the lanes, great for walkers. June 2012.
  2. Lovely cottage, well equipped and cosy. Great little log burner and shower too. Nice local walks, but ideal for Dartmoor and easy reach of larger towns if needed. April 2012.
  3. Great little cottage especially if you have a dog, great walks straight from back of cottage, I was impressed with the dog pooh bins! people do use them. One tip, if you arrive in the dark, take a torch as we had difficulty in finding a light switch, and we did manage to park right outside the cottage, which is great if you have a wet dog! Feb 2012.
  4. The cottage was ideally located in quaint village. Very near to Tavistock and Plymouth but most importantly for us, the moors were on our doorstop and provided great walks with our dog. The cottage provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay and even though we only stayed for 5 days, we felt like we really had a complete break. Oct 2011.
  5. We enjoyed staying at this property it was nearly home from home with all mod cons (More than we are used to when we rent) and the peace and quiet was deafening. We were twenty two steps to a lovely village pub, what more? The position of the property gave us easy access to Dartmoor and also to Plymouth and Cornwall. July 2011.
  6. We had a lovely week in this cosy cottage which was very clean and well equipped. A quiet location next to the church and footpaths providing pleasant walks. We enjoyed a delicious meal in the village pub. July 2011.
  7. The cottage was very comfortable and very well equiped. Its location was ideal for the walking holiday we had planned. May 2011.
  8. Excellent location with walks direct from backdoor. Great for our dog and a good local pub. Feb 2011.
  9. This cosy cottage was very central to the village. Oct 2009.
  10. Lovely cottage in a charming village, an excellent base for exploring the area, we hope to book again. March 2009.
  11. Proximity to a good, friendly pub that served good food. Convenient for walking the dog. Quiet location. Aug 2009.
  12. Lovely property. Clean, great location. We loved it and would go again and the dogs loved their stay there. Great walks for dogs just outside the back gate. Oct 2007.
  13. The property was of a very high standard with regard to cleanliness, facilities and location. I would recommend to anyone. Oct 2007.
  14. The nearby pub is brilliant. Their Sunday roast was excellent! Sept 2007.
