  • "Thank you for a lovely stay - the cottage is beautiful and very well appointed."

    Totally peaceful and idyllic surroundings. The owners were very helpful and everything was perfect, with lots of nice little touches to make us feel welcome. The hot tub is a real treat. It's not a criticism as most cottages don't yet have them, but an electric car charger would be useful (payable of course). However we knew there wasn't one so we planned accordingly - it would just be more convenient to charge overnight. But absolutely loved the place, would highly recommend and would stay here again.

  • "Beautiful cottage in the woods which feels extremely remote and quiet but sufficiently close to civilisation to not be a problem in getting anywhere."

    Nick was amazing throughout our stay, very helpful and friendly and provided a lovely Prosecco treat and specifically catered to our non-dairy needs with the milk provided. We loved our stay and would definitely stay again. Helpful tips for other people staying: 1. Take some indoor slippers as the cottage has a beautiful oak floor which is polished/waxed/cleaned before your stay. In bare feet or socks we found it to be very slippery especially then using the tiled bathroom floor so would recommend indoor footwear that is safe for the floors. 2. If you are not confident using tiny Devon lanes it may not be for you as the approach is single track and near working farmland. We are very used to such roads but had some interesting moments with tractors but handled easily but I know some people don't like using such roads. Also if your car has low suspension the final part of the track may be a little problematic for you.

  • "The cottage was just incredible!"

    Very quiet and beautiful spot! We had amazing week off away from everything! A lot of attraction within an hour drive such as Eden project, lost gardens of Heligan and quite a lot of National Trust walks/coastal walks. Karen and Nick were lovely, always there if you need them but without bothering you. The property had lovely living room, very nice bedroom with comfy bed and kitchen had everything we needed. We are already looking to go back next year.

    .. absolutely beautiful. Owner's always there to help if needed, but they also leave you alone, they were great, many thanks. Lovely welcome card, flowers, milk in the fridge...and even a bottle of fizz on arrival, Hot Tub was fab, best I've ever been in, again, surrounded by tranquil trees and birds. Would definitely recommend booking.

  • "Nick & Karen are both lovely hosts, the location of the cottage is beautiful."

    Plenty of trails to walk around and explore. The cottage itself is lovely, modern but still has that rustic feel to it. Very clean inside and we felt like it was our own little home whilst we was there with the log burner on. The hottub was like the icing on the cake and was a perfect little way to relax in the evenings after going for a nice walk along the streams that run through the woods. Plenty of history in the area but overall a amazing stay, will definitely be coming back here in the summer. Didn't want to leave!

  • "We absolutely loved staying here, very tranquil!"

    The cottage has everything you could need for a relaxing week away from it all. We really enjoyed the hot tub especially with the colour changing lights in the evening and the steam rising into the still night air. The wood burning stove is great to chillax in front of and you can quite easily get lost in the flames for a while. There’s also a very big and really really comfy bed which sent us of to la la land in no time at all, we slept so well. Great owners too we will be back Thanks for having us Nick and Steph

  • "Had a great week in this fabulous cottage."

    It has everything you could hope for. If I were to offer any constructive criticism it would be that the seating in the living area wasn't as comfortable as it could have been. This didn't detract from this cottage being great in every other respect, from the quality of the accommodation, the big comfortable bed, great shower and roll-top bath. The kitchen was well equipped, with everything you would need. And a fantastic hot tub, which was great for relaxing in after a busy day. Nick was very helpful on our arrival and his directions were perfect.
