  • "Lovely comfortable cottage for 2."

    Host charming and very helpful. Could not wish for better peaceful property on the edge of Dartmoor. Hosts garden was a bird watchers paradise. Highly recommended, Even got used to the very narrow lanes.

    Thank you for your positive feedback! The birds are always commented on and now there are two hedgehogs waiting at 10:30/11:00 pm for supper!! Lovely to have met you and I’m so glad you enjoyed your break!! :-) Property Owner

  • "We loved our week at Wisteria Cottage."

    It was beautifully and thoroughly furnished and it was clear that lots of thought about the comfort of her guests had been put in by the owner. The rural and quiet location suited us well and there was plenty to do and see in the area, with two lovely pubs nearby and and excellent community shop in Holne. We would highly recommend Wisteria Cottage.

    Thank you for your lovely comments! It was a pleasure having you here! X Property Owner

  • "Beautiful, cottage, full of character, immaculately clean and comfortable."

    Parking is a bit tight if you have a large vehicle. Located in a lovely, quaint hamlet with a pub, The Tradesman’s Arms, about two hundred yards away, where they serve good food and beer. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. Beautiful countryside.

  • "This is a lovely, cosy cottage for two."

    Well-equipped and very clean. The owner - who lives next door - is friendly and helpful. The cottage is well located for walks on Dartmoor and many other attractions in South Devon. The pub, which does good pub grub, is just a few minutes walk away.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback! It was a pleasure to meet you both and it makes me so happy when visitors have had a great time! Thank you again! X Property Owner

    Close to local attractions and next to a great pub. Owner very friendly. Lovely big bed and spacious bathroom. The only thing is we had to buy a fan as was warm but that wasn't a big issue. We will definitely return.

    It is accessible being only 12 minutes from the A38. The cottage is spotless and has everything you need and is tastefully decorated.

    We had a wonderful stay at Wisteria cottage and wanted for nothing. The only complaint was it was too short and went too quickly. We would highly recommend and would love to return.

  • "We had a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend in Annabelle's cottage - despite storm Alex!"

    It's a perfect bolthole for two. Lots of walking on the doorstep. And even when we decided it was too wet to go walking, the smart TV and Bose sound system meant that we could relax in comfort. The Tradesman's Arms is just a few minutes walk away and serves great home cooked food. Everyone very welcoming and friendly... and the clotted cream from Scoriton Farm is to die for!

    A lovely big bedroom and super king bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was lovely with the wet area shower. The lounge very comfortable with thought to all the soft furnishings and pictures, it was a nice space to come back to. The kitchen was very well equipped too. Our dogs were made very welcome with bowls, towels and doggy treats. Annabel was very welcoming when we arrived and there were home made scones with clotted cream and jam provided, plus a bottle of bubbly. The location was a great central point for visiting the coast or Dartmoor and beautiful walks from the cottage up to the moors. We were blessed with 2 lovely autumn sunshine days such helped! We would definitely recommend.

  • "A great little property ideally situated for Dartmoor and the coast."

    Very comfortable and equipped with everything required, with an added bonus of electric blankets on the bed! Home made cream tea left for us by host Annabel, who is a lovely lady, very friendly but not intrusive. The roads in this area are single lane with high hedges, and may not be suitable for nervous drivers. Would highly recommend.
