  • "Sadly i purcgased the holiday cottage for my Daughters Birthday but she called a week before and said she wouldn't be able to go."

    So thank you for your request to complete the feedback , but i felt i couldn't reply positively without knowing. But staying in your cottages before, as i have no doubt the comments would have been positive.

  • "This is a delightful cottage in a very peaceful location."

    We felt very at home and the attractive little coach house, which was warm and very well equipped, made it a very enjoyable stay - even in winter! We were particularly appreciative of the walled garden where our greyhound could be let out easily, and also the large paddock where he could have a good run off the lead.

    Beds were very comfy. Having our lively spaniel with us, the paddock was ideal.

  • "The Coach House provides a wonderful place to unwind and relax in rural surroundings."

    The house is clean, comfortable and full of little touches which made our stay so effortless and problem free. The garden is lovely and our dog (and I) adored the paddock to let off steam before setting off exploring for the day. Our only regret is that we did not have the opportunity to thank the owner on leaving for our wonderful stay. We hope to return in the future, and stay longer!

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at The Coach House."

    It’s lovely and has everything you need for a relaxing away from it all holiday. The beds are very comfortable and the accommodation is very well equipped. Our dog enjoyed the enclosed immediate garden and we all enjoyed the grounds of the main house, they are absolutely stunning and we very much enjoyed looking at all of the trees, plants and flowers everyday walking around them. The owners live next to The Coach House but after an initial greeting leave you to yourselves although they are on hand and super friendly if and when you need them. The location is totally tranquil and your neighbours are cows, pheasants and singing birds. We would definitely recommend this property for a peaceful stay and a good base to explore Devon.

    The cottage has everything you could need and it felt so homely and relaxing from the minute we opened the front door. The owners couldn’t have been nicer and were so helpful and friendly and kindly let us use their paddock for our dog (which he loved). The enclosed cottage garden is brilliant and secure for dogs and is beautifully maintained. Although we had some bad weather on our stay it was lovely to come back to such a lovely cottage.

  • "We selected to pay in full for our holiday on Sykes' webpage, all was well."

    We received an email a few weeks later stating that if we did not pay £1 we would loose the holiday On contacting Sykes with questions regarding the payment of £1, Sykes replied we are aware of this it is a problem with the system! I also had some questions regarding our stay And the generic answer given was"It will be in the email" When receiving this email it was very vague,and generic the only useful,information was the contact details of the owner. On contacting the owner all out fears and concerns were put to rest. On arrival the cottage was outstanding and the owners went the extra mile to ensure our stay was perfect. To our surprise there was a new kitchen and the front door was a new colour! Please Sykes update your website, it does the cottage no favours.

  • "The Coach House was beautiful, clean, comfortable and in a gorgeous setting."

    Gardens surrounding it were stunning. My sons dog loved running around in the enclosed paddock.. Lots of books and games provided, Justin case of a rainy day. Owners were delightful and left treats in the fridge. If you have a car with a low skirt , be careful of the private drive as the grass between the ruts is pretty high. I would totally recommend the cottage as it really is a special place to stay. You can walk around the gardens ( a gardeners dream ) and even use the various seats provided. Total peace and tranquillity. Easy to get to any beaches or attractions as very central. A big thank you to the hosts.

  • "The cottage was lovely, small but had all the facilities we needed."

    We didn’t have much contact with the owners but they did leave us wine, shortbread and eggs which was gratefully received. Overall we had a great time. A couple of things that are worth mentioning The vicarage is right on top of cottage which didn’t seem obvious from picture although if I had looked at the map it is apparent. There is a very large wall around the small garden that stops the very beautiful view. Road/ track to cottage quite bumpy. No WiFi but the 4G signal is amazing. We found the sofa less than comfortable which probably isn’t an issue in the summer. This is a super little bolt hole for a couple on a break and we had a lovely time.

Close to the A30 (Launceston is close by) it's easy to head to Bodmin, Dartmoor, south towards Plymouth and several National Trust properties or North-west to Bude on the North Cornish coast.

    It is has the most glorious setting! The only sounds to be heard were the birds and sheep. We sat in the garden one night looking at the stars, there was no light pollution to spoil the view, magical. The cottage was warm and cosy, comfortable beds, great hot shower, a big basket of logs for the fire. It was very clean and had everything we needed for a great week. The welcome pack, fresh eggs, wine etc very welcome! Sherry and Dave were lovely hosts, if a little mad, who is out gardening from dawn till dusk? But their efforts were well worth it their garden is gorgeous and they were more than happy for us to share it. If you are looking for a break away from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind you will find no better place to recharge your batteries. But equally you will be well placed to visit many of the beauty spots Devon and Cornwall has to offer.

The property

The Coach House stands in the grounds of a handsome former Vicarage in the unspoiled village of Broadwoodwidger.

Situated at the end of a quarter-mile private drive, this detached property dating back to the 19th century is a haven of peace and quiet.

You are welcome to explore the surrounding 3 acres of grounds from which there are spectacular views of the local Devon countryside.

Pretty window seats look over your own private, gated garden with table and chairs.

Also on the ground floor is a neat kitchen and recently refurbished bathroom.

On the first floor are two bedrooms; the light and airy master double and a single room with distant views over the adjacent fields.

The Coach House is ideal for walkers and those who love to spend time outside.

Nearby Roadford Lake offers an array of watersports, angling, cycling, walking trails and a lakeside cafe with stunning views.

Close to the Devon/Cornwall border, this is an ideal location for visiting both counties.
