Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Wonderful location and comfortable cottage set in a large garden with lovely views. Owners very welcoming and helpful. Feb 2012.
  2. Owner on hand and very welcoming and helpful. Very well equipped kitchen, and lovely wood burner with logs freely available. Very easy access to Dartmoor - 2 minutes away and our dog thought he was in heaven. Dec 2011.
  3. A lovely cottage with every need catered for in a beautiful setting and friendly accommodating hosts. Would definitely go there again- the perfect place to unwind from the pressures of everyday life. July 2011.
  4. The cottage is particularly well equipped especially the kitchen and every where was spotlessly clean. Plenty of towels, toilet rolls, soap, dishwasher tablets and condiments. Dogs were particularly made welcome. Dr & Mrs Seale were delightful hosts. June 2011.
  5. We had a wonderful week in this cottage. Made especially welcome and the cottage had everything we needed. It was particularly enjoyable because we had complete access to the garden so the dogs were catered for as well. The owners were very special. May 2011.
  6. The property offered every home comfort - the kitchen was better equipped than my own! It was in a beautiful location with wonderful views over the garden to the hills beyond. May 2011.
  7. Lovely property with amazing grounds. The picture in the brochure simply doesn’t do it justice. The owners, Jane and John have become firm friends over the years. Lovely walks close by and Ashburton is great for shopping and food. May 2011.
  8. This was our best cottage holiday in one of the most fantastic locations. The wild meadow garden was superb and it was easy to access Dartmoor for walks. The owners were very helpful and friendly. April 2011.
  9. The accommodation was excellent, very clean and homely. The kitchen was better equipped than my own and the owners were extremely helpful. The only slight criticism that I could raise were the lounge chairs were not the most comfortable, but this is indeed being picky. Feb 2011.
  10. The best property ever, stayed there three times. Jan 2011.
  11. Very clean and spacious. Our red setter loved the large dog friendly grounds. Wildlife were frequent visitors to the garden, a real treat! Nov 2010.
  12. The house was very comfortable, well appointed and clean. We do like to have separate bathrooms with toilets. The kitchen was well equipped and pleasant. We would be happy to stay here again if holidaying in Dartmoor. The owners were helpful and eager to oblige. Oct 2010.
  13. Extremely well equipped, lovely property in very good setting. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this property. Oct 2010.
  14. The owner was lovely, helpful and cheerful. Nothing was too much trouble we enjoyed the foxes and badgers on the lawn. The location was great and central and the house was warm, very clean and well appointed. Thank you for letting us share your home. Sept 2010.
  15. Excellent position just outside the village. Walking straight from the front door. Very well appointed especially the kitchen. Sept 2010.
  16. A lovely cottage only 5 minutes walk from the village and Dartmore with large garden. Kids loved the play house in the garden. Aug 2010.
  17. This was the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. There was even emergency plasters and lady things. The owner had put out toys for our toddler to play with. July 2010.
  18. Lovely character house with an exceptionally well-equipped kitchen. The views are great, as are the gardens which the owners encourage visitors to use and enjoy. June 2010.
  19. Light and airy house - well furnished and supplied. Loved the village - and the owners were lovely. June 2010.
  20. The cottage was in beautiful grounds in a lovely sunny position. The owner was very friendly and helpful. April 2010.
