    Easy walking distance to local pub that served good food. Did not need to use our car all the time as local bus very prompt and reasonably priced. We managed to go to Torquay, Paignton and Brixham and no parking issues ! Jill and Michael very helpful and we would have no hesitation in recommending a stay at their property.

    Thank you both for such lovely feedback its always lovely to hear from our guests that they have enjoyed their stay with us. Property Owner

    Jill and Michael (the owners) are really friendly and helpful, and we really appreciated the cream tea, flowers and milk that were there on our arrival.

    The owner who lives upstairs greeted us on arrival and was extremely helpful. The cottage was immaculate and every care had obviously been taken to make it feel like a home from home. The shared garden was lovely and would have been ideal for having breakfast etc if the weather had been better. It is very quiet and peaceful and well placed for local amenities and places to go. We will definitely be back and I would highly recommend this cottage.

  • "Exceeded expectations."

    We went off season, just as self catering opened after the full lockdown. We were delighted to be able to come to Garden View as we books months before. The many small touches (fresh flowers, cream tea, on arrival etc) meant our expectations were exceeded. We made good use of the short walk booklet they provided giving us doorstep and less local walks for morning and afternoon. In addition to our planned walks. The view from the garden is lovely. And a great suntrap. The kitchen is small but was well appointed and adequate to cook our meals each day. The bedroom is large and main room a nice size. It was pleasant that the kitchen was separate. Add the utility room and you have all you need. The Shower room is great and while the water pressure isn't high it is adequate. Reversing out of the drive could be a challenge for some but I didn't find it a significant problem (I have reversing camera and sensors). We mixed our stay between very local, coastal and dartmoor walks with town visits. Making this a perfect location. Our hosts were great and a lovely couple. The accommodation was pristine and had just been redecorated. I highly recommend staying here and there is so much to do we will happily stay here again.

  • "Our only complaint about Garden View was the beds."

    They were very uncomfortable, sagging in the middle and hard on the hips when you lay on your side. I had to put some foam on top to get some sleep. They could do with replacing. When you have been out walking all day, you need a comfortable bed to sleep on.
