Guest Reviews


    • “Charming, Peaceful and Comfortable”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This has been our third stay in Primrose Cottage and on each occasion we have had a very restful time indeed. The cottage is especially well equipped and, with the addition of those little touches, it makes for a pleasant stay. It is very handy for the town centre which has a host of small shops and the famous pannier market. We would not hesitate to recommend it, although we were unable to access any Wifi in the cottage, relying instead on a couple of local pubs or the library.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This is a lovely cottage. Everything you need is there. it is close to the town and to wonderful Dartmoor. The only problem we had sometimes was parking, I think people who work in town would park in the street so twice we had to leave our car in town until it became quieter. But this, although annoying did not detract anything from our holiday,”

    • “We very much enjoyed staying in this amazingly well equipped cottage for three weeks in October 2012. Could not have asked for more really! Nothing had been overlooked in setting up and supplying this charming cottage. The location was perfect for getting to the shops and amenities on foot and Tavistock is a great place to stay for getting around the area in general by car or bus.”

    • “Warm and comfortable.”

    • “The cottage is conveniently situated two minutes walk from the high street which has a supermarket and many other shops.The property is warm and well kitted out with cutlery,plates and all kitchen appliances including a dishwasher. The only down side is parking as most on-road spaces were often taken and the car park across the road was closed on Christmas and Boxing days. Well situated for trips to Plymouth and walks on Dartmoor.”

    Mrs Stapley, Hove, March 2015

    • “Very easy access to the town centre. A warm and cosy cottage which was well equipped. It was very well positioned for trips to Plymouth and walks on Dartmoor.”

    Mr Jones, Cardiff, December 2014

    • “The location was excellent being almost right in the heart of the town whilst still being very quiet. It was warm and cosy and incredibly well equipped.”

    Mrs Wotherspoon, Sheffield, December 2014

    • “This cottage is situated in a quiet part of what is a fairly quiet town and, what with the bed being extremely comfortable, made for a peaceful and relaxing break. The cottage wants for nothing in terms of cleanliness and home comforts, and the attention to detail is exceptional.”

    Mrs Stapley, Hove, November 2014

    • “The cottage was really cosy and amazingly well-equipped and its location very pleasant. We enjoyed visiting Cornwall and Devon and walking in Dartmoor National Park. We would recommend this place and hope to come back one day!”

    Ms Leutellier, CHATEAUBOURG, July 2014

    • “The Cottage had everything we needed and it was close to the town and the countryside. The owners have equipped the cottage very thoughtfully, it was comfortable and private.”

    Mrs Smith, Crawley, June 2014

    • “The cottage was in a great spot close to town. We could walk to a good supermarket, coffee shop, the pannier markets and the historic part of Tavistock. The kitchen was particularly well-appointed and we were able to easily cook meals there if we wished. It was great to have access to a washing machine and dryer after travelling around for over a week .”

    Mrs Logan, Brisbane, April 2014

    • “Primrose Cottage is a delightful property. We loved the open plan living downstairs. All the furniture and fittings were of excellent quality and showed thought, it really felt a home from home. Everything we could possibly need was there. The owner has clearly put a lot of thought into what makes a perfect holiday home and they have achieved.”

    Mrs Wilkie, Edinburgh, March 2014

    • “Excellent location, well equipped, nice Christmas decorations, felt at home.”

    Mr Harrison, Laurede (FRANCE), December 2013

    • “We both loved this cottage, we felt at home straight away. It was very cosy and warm, and it was one of the best equipped places we have stayed in. Tavistock is a great place to stay - lovely walks and interesting places to visit, and it was really good to be just round the corner from our family!”
