Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We had a special reason for visiting this cottage my husband lived in it as a boy from 1939 -1950 It had been updated beautifully but still retained its special charms. March 2012.
  2. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We came for a romantic winter honeymoon break, so we really didn’t explore the local area at all. We loved the four poster bed, the cosy living room with the massive TV, the beautiful Xmas decorations they provided, and everything else. We even explored the garden once, and it was gorgeous, and we really enjoyed watching the birds from the kitchen window. Perfect. Dec 2011.
  3. A perfect and very character filled 500+ year old English countryside cottage. Everything we needed was there. Perfect for a family or romantic escape away from the world! Dec 2011.
  4. The cottage was great and the garden was magical. Nov 2011.
  5. This cottage is absolutely charming and incredibly well equipped. It was very cosy when we arrived there in the evening and exciting to peer out of the stable door and see the archway through to the orchard behind the little garden. The village has nice little shops and is well located if you want to visit central Devon or any of the coastlines. There is no WiFi but I guess that’s why you’re on holiday! Taller people would need to mind the beams. The fires are nice but are gas. Aug 2011.
  6. A delightful quaint chocolate box thatched cottage which provided the warmest of welcomes. The beautiful country interior was gently lit with glowing lamps and the traditional inglebook fireplaces had welcoming fires lit to create a truly homely atmostphere. The cottage was wonderfully equipped with all of the facilities of home and we were totally delighted to find a secret garden beyond the kitchen garden which was a magical treat for our toddler. The village offers all the basics and two fantastic pubs with really good meals. The restaurant at the Globe is a must and the Red Lion is great for a drink at the end of a long day. March 2011.
  7. Absolutely stunning cottage, beautifully and lovingly restored full of character and charm. Could not fault the cottage, or the lovely lady who gave us the keys and made us very welcome. There has been a lot of time and thought gone into making the cottage a fabulous place to spend a little holiday, just delightful. Feb 2011.
  8. The cottage was charming, both inside and out. It felt like walking into a most welcoming home, complete with all life’s little luxuries - nothing was missing and many unexpected treats were included. It was large and spacious, deliciously warm and the 2 back gardens were a delight to explore, even in winter. Within a few minutes walk were all the shops and facilities needed, and many friendly folk stopped and stalked on the street and in the pub. I was genuinely sad to leave and wished I had at least another week. Feb 2011.
  9. Exactly like the brochure said and more. Already booked up for next year. Oct 2010.
  10. An original 15th century cottage with a modern comfort level and spectacular garden. Great accommodation. Aug 2010.
  11. Excellent cottage, as described and inavery pleasent village (sorry town) self contained with good local shops and excellent pub. May 2010.
  12. Lots of room and very nice internal presentation. Jan 2010.
  13. It had everything we could possibly need. Lovely, cosy, quaint cottage. Dec 2009.
  14. We especially liked the garden and the personal touches that were provided. Oct 2009.
  15. The accommodation was excellent. There was a lovely warm welcome and lots of little homely touches that made our stay even more enjoyable. All of the rooms had their own character, the locals were extremely friendly and made us very welcome. A very enjoyable holiday. Dec 2009
  16. The cottage was full of character, very clean and nicely decorated. The location was excellent. Sept 2009.
  17. The cottage was everything I expected it was cosy, quaint and clean. Sept 2009.
  18. The cottage was beautifully clean and had everything we needed. It was a sort of place which would be ideal for honeymooners. May 2008.
  19. The charm and comfort of Spindleberry was exceptional. The photographs of the garden didn’t do it justice. It was particularly delightful. Chulmleigh was welcoming and the neighborhood pub "The Old Courthouse" and it’s Irish music night was great entertainment. May 2009.
  20. A lovely cottage with loads of character. Would highly recommend anyone to stay there. Feb 2008.
