  • "Holiday cottage and location is wonderful."

    This is our 3rd trip there. Only feedback is the lounge sofas need to be changed they have sunk in and very low. Very uncomfortable sitting for long periods of time. Otherwise wonderful

  • "Phillips and Peter were lovely, friendly hosts."

    The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The grounds that the cottage is set in are absolutely stunning. We enjoyed sitting in the many seating areas, using the pool and watching the baby foals that were only 4 weeks old. We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend to anyone else.

  • "It was an absolutely lovely place to stay, well off the beaten track, the grounds were well kept and lots of pet friendly space to play with our dog, also I could imagine a young family having a fun time too as there was a rope swing and various outdoor activities to mess about with, the indoor pool was a big plus and nicely kept."

    It makes a lovely get away and is quite central for visiting Devon. The lovely couple who own it were warm, friendly and very helpful, which made our stay even better, thank you.

  • "Lovely accommodation set in a idyllic location."

    The grounds are amazing and kept the kids entertained for hours watching the horses and chickens, feeding the ducks, playing badminton and going on the boat round the lake. We also took a cricket set and football as there is plenty of grassed area to play on. The added bonus of the indoor pool was the highlight of the holiday! The owners are lovely and are very helpful with any requests such as recommending places to visit. This is definitely a property that’s on our list to return to! Thank you for a great holiday.

  • "The owners were great, helpful and left you to your own thing."

    Gave advise for where to go and which road to take. The pool was the same depth and a good size, with a quirky Telephone shower. Large open fire with seating was perfect for us, next to the pool. Pheasant Cottage had all what we needed for cooking. The sleeping on top floor is unusual with 3 beds in the same room, my kids actually preferred this so they could watch tv together and talk. Wifi was a decent speed ( 13Mbps ), we had no buffering when on Netflix. Quiet out of the way cottage for a family, just prep the log fire and light then all sit together with a film. Would love to return in the summer if this virus goes. Thanks for having and making it a nice few days before Xmas.

  • "Phillipa and Peter are charming hosts."

    Phillipa made us very welcome after a long journey with pots of tea and her home made cake. Our grandchildren loved the indoor pool. They and their dog had a wonderful time running and playing games in the huge secure garden, playing on the tree swing and making friends with Phillipa and Peters dogs - Crumpet and Humphrey and Colin the cat! The weather wasn't cold but my husband took great delight in using the wood burning stove - the wood was supplied and replenished every day.

  • "We had a wonderful October week in this lovely cottage."

    Our arrival was greeted with the warmest of welcomes (and a tray of tea and cake)! The cottage is beautifully set in a rural location, a proper hideaway. We loved the pool. The cottage is well-provisioned and very comfortable. The only thing I could possibly suggest would be to have one or two larger saucepans - there were five of us plus a baby, the cottage sleeps seven, and had it not been for the fact we took a slow cooker with us for convenience I think we would have struggled with just the pan sizes which were available. We hope to return for another visit one day.

  • "I would like to say on your part everything was fine on the listing of the property they were a bit misleading it said had broadband then I had an email from you to say great news that there would be wi-fi so I was very pleased."

    On arriving at the property on the table a letter from the owners explaining that there was wifi but it was not very good that was an understatement if you have broadband & wi-fi surely one of them would work we had no service for the whole week? Also the tele was freeview and that went offline one night we was in bed before 10pm when on HOLIDAY that is not acceptable. Apart from that the area and cottage was good. The small roads might worry some but it was fine even when met a tractor & a lorry. Area very peaceful lots of animals to watch. Wood basket refilled daily log burner kept hubby busy every night.

    Our boys absolutely loved the pool and the grounds are lovely with a trampoline and tree swings. The owners were so welcoming and friendly. Our son was so proud to have been allowed to collect his very own egg from the hen house. The location is great, so beautiful and quiet yet travel to beaches, zoos and miniature villages less than an hour away. We heartily recommend staying here and will be booking again for future holidays.

  • "Very welcoming and relaxing cottage."

    The owners were really helpful if we needed anything. Beautiful and quiet surrounding and plenty to do in the area, would recommend the war horse farm. We stayed at the cottage with our grandson and his parents and found that there was plenty to do in the large garden with a lake and boat for those pirate adventures on to the island in the middle. At other times the trampoline, rope swing or stream in the wooded copse kept him busy not to mention the excellent indoor swimming pool with a phone box shower. The whole week was great.

    Despite visiting in November the wood burner ensured the we were always cosy. The cottage is on a site with other properties, but we had complete privacy, The pool and pool house are great we had sole use of these during our stay, the enclosed field meant we could let the Dog off for a run.

Winkleigh 3 miles; Okehampton 8 miles.

Broadwoodkelly is a delightful country village set among lush green fields, high hedgerows and winding lanes just 8 miles from Okehampton and the ‘Gateway’ to the moors. Surrounded by a labyrinth of country walks, with several excellent fishing rivers, a number of quality golf courses and a wealth of wildlife on the doorstep, there are few better spots from which to experience the joys of country living. Pretty thatched villages with quaint pubs and restaurants abound, while close to hand are a number of Stately homes and National Trust properties.
