  • "We had a lovely stay at 2 Court Cottages."

    The photograph of the outside does not do justice to how spacious it is inside. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was thoughtfully supplied. The small courtyard garden was a lovely warm, sheltered place to relax with a drink (or two) at the end of the day. Would definitely like to visit again!

  • "A very comfortable and well-equipped cottage."

    Weather very hot this week so spent most of our time outdoors and loved the enclosed garden. Perfect for our dog too.

  • "Beds and furniture uncomfortable for my taste."

    Thank you for your feedback. Bed comfort is very subjective, and indeed there are reviews stating that other guests have found the property including the beds, comfortable. However the owner has taken on board your feedback and has purchased a mattress topper. We hope that despite this you enjoyed your time at 2 Court Cottage. Property Owner

  • "Comfortable and well equipped."

    Particularly appreciated the food basics so often lacking - spices, herbs, oil, salt, tea, coffee etc

  • "Really loved it there."

    Great base to explore the South Hams region. Charming cottage in a charming village. We’d go back in a trice.

    What a lovely review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your time, and we would love to welcome you back anytime. Property Owner

  • "This is a really nice house."

    Very comfortable, has everything we needed, clean and well maintained. It is a really good location to visit local beaches. We had a lovely stay and I would happily recommend it. No criticism of the property in any way, but visitors should be made aware that the cars outside come literally to the doorstep and drive very fast - be extra cautious with children and dogs.

  • "Excellent cottage."

    Very comfortable. Spotless clean and well appointed. Was going to rebook for next year however far too large a price increase.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are thrilled you loved the property. We are sorry you will not be booking for next year, due to the high demand of ‘staycations’ this year the price has increased across the board with most rental companies in the UK. We do hope we can welcome you back to the area in the future. Property Owner

  • "2 Court Cottages has been beautifully restored, decorated and furnished."

    The ground floor has been opened up to provide a comfortable sitting room and kitchen/diner with French doors onto the courtyard garden. The bedrooms are very restful with lovely linen and fluffy towels. Both bathrooms have very efficient showers/baths. Aveton Gifford is very well positioned for easy access to all the lovely beaches and cliff path walks in the South Hams as well as shopping in Kingsbridge and Salcombe. We hope to return again soon.

  • "My husband and I have recently returned from a most enjoyable holiday at 2 court cottages in Aveton Gifford Devon."

    The cottage is delightful; tastefully furnished and well equipped.The beds were extremely comfortable and made up of fine linen. On cooler evenings we really enjoyed the wood burning stove making the whole place feel extremely cosy. We were lucky to have (not every day) some lovely warm sunny weather and were able to enjoy the delightful court yard garden for drinks and meals and this was at the end of September! Aveton Gifford is a friendly unpretentious village and the general store/ Post Office is very well stocked. The village is placed in a really great position for walks,beaches a short ride away, and is a brilliant base for visiting the surrounding area. We will definitely book this cottage again!

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are very pleased to hear you had a lovely time and we do hope we can welcome you back to the area soon. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage for our family summer stay."

    All the appliances you need - as well as super comfy beds, and lovely carpets! There was lots of space upstairs, and downstairs was perfect for 4 people. Look out for the drop step to the kitchen - almost floored all 4 of us at various points. However the cottage was clean, beautifully decorated and very comfortable: just the ticket for a nice holiday!

  • "The cottage is beautifully presented."

    Clean and very welcoming. Great little Community shop and the play area in the village is very well equiped for all age of children. Lovely log burner and very fluffy towels. Great location for coast and country and parking wasn't an issue as plenty of free parking next to the Community shop.

    We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time at 2 Court Cottages. We think Aveton Gifford is a great place to base yourself when wanting to explore all that South Devon has to offer. We hope that we can welcome you back to the area again soon! Property Owner
