  • "Zeer mooie locatie!"

    Zeer volledig ingerichte keuken!

    Thank you very much for your comments, we're so pleased you had a good time! Translated (using Google) this reads as: Very nice location! Very fully equipped kitchen! Property Owner

  • "Fabulous location - quiet, with views to die for from the sun room."

    Very clean (sorry for not unloading the dishwasher and leaving some clean washing up on the drainer, I was there on my own and was unwell the last 2 days and couldn't manage everything:-() Very steep stairs, which I was prepared for, no need to do squats for a while now. Negative point, for me the lay-out didn't work, the rooms downstairs are very dark, you need lights on all the time (weather didn't help) and I would have much preferred the fabulous sun room to be a sitting room with a couple of sofas instead of a second dining area for 6. This might just be me though. This room has amazing views straight out onto the moors and seems a missed opportunity. For people with dogs this property would be wonderful as two steps from the door and you are right in beautiful countryside. Hot tubbing in the dark in the rain and a gale is a bit special I've discovered:-) Oh yes, an especial mention to Rick (brother of owner) who gallantly changed my daughters wheel when she visited and got a puncture en route - thank you so much Rick. Finally, I was there on my own in what felt a little like the middle of nowhere (townie) in some pretty rubbish weather and I felt very safe. Did I mention the snowdrops on the track to the cottage? They are my favourite flower and boy was this the time of year to see them in droves - thank you.

    It’s so well set up for families, the kitchen and bedroom arrangements are excellent. We loved long walks, with such easy access to the moors and woodlands, no need to use the car once you arrive. The hot tub was perfect for tired muscles after!

  • "Very disappointed to discover that after an appalling first nights sleep the listed king-size bed has been replaced by a 4 foot 6 “ bed."

    We complained to the owners who apologised but said there was nothing they could do about it. We had minimal phone signal and didn’t wish to spoil our week further by spending time trying to contact helpful holidays.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We're sorry you were not informed about the change to the bed in the property before your stay started. We have ensured this will not happen again and informed all future guests of the change. Property Owner

  • "We were a party of 4 friends and we had a lovely stay at Brimpt's Farm."

    The house is homely, spacious and clean, with excellent facilities for cooking and socialising. It's right in the heart of Dartmoor so also a perfect location for a walking/sporting holiday too. The view from the dining room is stunning, and there is a riverside walk from the doorstep - which we loved. Overall we had a great stay and would happily stay at Brimpt's again.

  • "Had a wonderful few days at Brimpts cottage."

    We had a problem with the heating but with a few minutes of contacting the owners it had been fixed. The wood burner could do with a bit of attention but we did manage to get it going. We were 6 adults and a 2yr old. We had plenty of room. The view from the glass room at back of house was stunning and always changing due to weather conditions. The wifi was a god send as there is no phone signal (Which in its self was a blessing).

  • "Brimpts Cottage was a good choice for us."

    The kitchen had every thing that we needed, we used the stove daily for coffee at breakfast and cooked in the evening. The hot tub was lovely especially after a long walk, very relaxing. It was great to be able to walk from the cottage, avoiding the use of the car. The view from the sun room was a treat every day at breakfast and again in the evening for supper. For the 2 of us it gave us ample space to write the diary and download our photographs. A great place to stay, we look forward to returning next year. Diana

    Wonderful views of the moor from the extension on the back . The wood burner gave the lounge a very cosy feel. Well equip kitchen. For people of a certain age the stairs were very steep and very high steps. The seating in the lounge was low again for people of a certain age.

    Although we had cold winds, rain, hail, sleet and snow, we were very comfortable and loved looking at the beautiful view from inside. Not that it stopped us from discovering the lovely walks on our doorstep, exploring woods, tin mines and the river of course. We particularly appreciated the owners immediate response to the fitting of a stair gate for our active toddler! Thank you so much - we very much hope to make a return visit.
