Guest Reviews


    • “Stunning week in beautiful thatched cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Perfect cottage for a relaxing holiday in the beautiful Devon countryside. Cottage well equipped, lovely comfy beds and is Ideal for pet owners as up to 4 dogs are allowed at no extra cost, Wake up in the morning to the sounds of ducks in the adjacent fenced in duck pond. Perfectly located for exploring Devon, and not far from superb beaches on the north Cornwall coast. The owners are lovely and most welcoming and live in an adjacent detached thatched cottage. For walkers the cottage is on the Tarka Trail footpath, which slightly further north becomes a cycleway.”

    • “Simply beautiful”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome by our hosts, who were lovely. The Cottage itself is beautiful and has everything that you need. The cottage is clean, comfortable and homely. It is located down a very long narrow lane, but this adds to the feeling of getting away from it all. The cottage is situated actually along the Tarka Trail, so if walking is your thing you can start from your front door. Widemouth beach is within a reasonable drive for a day at the coast. My younger daughter loved having our very own duck pond, (which is fenced off for safety). This a great place to really get away from all the hustle and bustle and enjoy the peace and quiet, but is still within easy reach of the local attractions within a short drive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Groves Fishleigh.”

    • “My husband and I stayed, with our three dogs, at Groves Fishleigh for one week in August 2014. The cottage was spotless, extremely comfortable and it had everything we needed. It really felt like a home away from home! The hosts were very warm and helpful and we appreciate that they welcomed our 3 dogs. The location is ideal for exploring Devon & Cornwall. We look forward to returning again!”

    • “Such a wonderful cottage, really didn't want to leave! The cottage was beautiful, so comfortable and warm. Set at the end of a very long lane, which added to the feeling of seclusion, privacy, peace and quiet. Couldn't fault anything on this holiday, we'd go back in a flash! Please, please can we move in?”

    Miss Fitzgerald, Rochdale, October 2015

    • “Beautiful well equipped thatched cottage in a quiet rural location. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. This is one of very few holiday homes that cater for more than 2 dogs and was ideal for us.”

    Mr Fleming, Market Rasen, September 2015

    • “A lovely cottage that is set in beautiful surroundings. The owners were both very welcoming to me and my family and we would recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a relaxing break.”

    Mr Chudleigh, Wickford, August 2015

    • “The property owners were very helpful and friendly and yet kept a respectful distance to allow us some privacy. The cottage location was particularly lovely with easy walking from the front door. The owners accept dogs and yet the property and grounds were spotless and beautifully presented. I would highly recommend this cottage.”

    Mrs Robertson, Newcastle Upon Tyne, June 2015

    • “The property was very good and the interior was excellent. It was very quiet where it was situated, there are not many properties you can go where sheep from the nearby farm are right outside your windows. Overall it was very good and we would recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet relaxing holiday. The owners were very pleasant and we had no problems at all.”

    Mr Driffield, Stoke-on-Trent, May 2015

    • “We received a very warm reception from the owners and nothing was too much trouble. The setting was idyllic, with a duck pond and many species of wild birds, also sheep and lambs grazing in the fields surrounding the property. Not too far from good beaches and places of interest.”

    Mr North, Southampton, April 2015

    • “A relaxing, peaceful place to stay. The fact that we could take 3 dogs made it perfect for us and the comfortable beds and sofas helped us to unwind after days out with a cosy log burner to sit round. This is a lovely part of Devon, very easy to go North or South with loads to see and do. Easy access to the moor as well.”

    Mrs Price, Littlehampton, March 2015

    • “Beautiful and comfortable cottage set in tranquil surroundings. Excellent location for exploring the county. Friendly and helpful owners.”

    Mr Hatton, Dorking, March 2015

    Mrs Brown, Bristol, January 2015

    Miss Riley, Staines-upon-Thames, December 2014

    • “We had a wonderful weeks holiday. Relaxing and comfortable. Beautiful outlook with its own duck pond and surrounded by fields. The Tarka Trail literally passes the front door, so, lots of lovely walks. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Would recommend and will return.”
