  • "The thatched cottage was ideal for a large family especially with the top floor for a family with children."

    The commincation with the owner was brilliant as this allowed us to request baby gates and early entry due to no prior occupants on our arrival date. The cottage had everything you needed both inside and out. The local area had a beautiful pub, cafe and minimarket and was close to drive to the surrounding area. We will definitely return and recommend to others both in summer or winter. Area to improve- the bushes need cutting back on the driveway especially if you have a large car.

  • "We had a fabulous stay at Church thatch and it was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 7 children ageing between 3-12."

    We made use of the garden, the local pub and shop. We visited some beautiful places nearby and even the rain didn’t spoil our fun. The communication with the owner was good and any questions were answered promptly. All in all a wonderful holiday.

Abbotskerswell is a village in the English county of Devon located two miles south of the town of Newton Abbot and within easy access of the seaside resort of Torquay, Dartmoor, Exeter and Plymouth. The village has many listed buildings, a local shop, a primary school, the 17th century Court Farm Inn/Restaurant, as well as tearooms. Abbotskerswell was developed around the growing of apples and oranges for cider making and the village hosts the annual "Abbfest" beer and food festival which celebrates Devon food and drink. A short drive takes you to Newton Abbot which is situated in the heart of The English Riviera, with its mild climate and thriving palm trees. The market towns of Totnes and Newton Abbot offer plenty of modern shops as well as one of the only traditional working Malthouses left in the UK, offering the finest selection of bottled beers in Devon.
