  • "We loved Rose Cottage immediately on arriving."

    It is cosy, well equipped, just everything one could ask for. The tasteful decor made it such a charming place. I simply cannot speak too highly of this accommodation. It is ideally placed for visiting many local places of interest. A memorable holiday here.

    It was a real pleasure having this couple at Rose cottage, who made the most of the village of Milton Combe and the immediate surrounding area. It would be lovely if they came back for a stay at Rose cottage in the future. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic stay at this beautiful cottage and really appreciated the welcome gifts left by the owner."

    It was cozy and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The garden is separate to the property by a very small quiet road but is part of the character of the whole village and we had no problems with our son whizzing out of the door by himself for a play in there - there are more horses than cars going through the village! There is a sweet playing area just down the lane near the church so really ideal for children of all ages. The location itself would be difficult to beat if you are looking for a peaceful stay in this part of Devon. The village is picture perfect and the pub opposite the cottage has delicious food, roaring fires and plenty of local beer and cider on tap. We would love to return one day as it's a location to enjoy in any season.

  • "This is a very special place in the heart of a lovely village."

    Maggie and Russell have taken great pains to provide a comfortable, recently renovated and well appointed cottage. There are two double bedrooms, one with en-suite, comfortable lounge and small but well laid out kitchen and the pub is just across the road. There is good lighting throughout (including for reading in bed!). The village is in a valley and very attractive. The garden across the road is on a hillside and a great place to sit with morning coffee. The situation of course has some limitations - all well explained in the web description - there really is parking for just one car and the stairs are steep, although you soon get used to them. If you can live this, you will have a lovely time at Rose Cottage.

    We are so pleased David had a lovely time at the cottage and appreciate feedback. There are some further limited options for further car parking close to the cottage. Please contact the owner direct for details and to make the arrangements Property Owner

  • "A really lovely cottage in such a beautiful village location."

    It was comfortable and clean with good facilities and both we and our children loved staying there. It is very quiet despite being just a few steps to the pub next door with good food on offer. We can recommend this cottage. The only very small issue we found was the lack of wardrobe space to hang-up clothes although there were ample drawers.

    So pleased that Ed and his family enjoyed their stay. We appreciate and act on all customer feedback. We have since added smart new wardrobes to both bedrooms. Property Owner

The property

Yelverton 3 miles.

Tucked away in the quiet village of Milton Combe rests this delightful whitewashed holiday home, Rose Cottage.

Boasting a traditional and homely interior and set within the picturesque landscape of the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Rose Cottage offers an idyllic base for two couples looking to explore the delights of the Devonshire countryside.

Stepping into the attractive dwelling you're welcomed into the country-style kitchen/diner, fit with all the amenities necessary to rustle up some tasty treats to enjoy perched at the intimate breakfast table, or head through to the adjoining living/dining room to gather around the dining table with your loved ones, planning your next adventure as you indulge.

The sociable space boasts eye-catching rustic character, decorated with wooden beams, exposed stonework and a warming woodburning stove, inviting you to nestle in on the sumptuous sofa to enjoy a movie night.

Head outside and cross the road to the separate garden, perched on the hillside and offering a tranquil setting to enjoy a refreshing glass of wine under the canopy of the stars.

As the day draws to a close, head back inside and prepare for bed with a leisurely soak amongst the bubbles in the family bathroom, conveniently located on the ground-floor, before heading upstairs to rest your head in one of the two spacious king-size bedrooms, both beautifully-appointed with a light and airy décor, one of which benefits from it's own en-suite shower.

Take a break from doing the cooking and head into the heart of Milton Combe to indulge in a delicious meal at the quintessentially English pub, The Who'd Have Thought It Inn, serving fresh local produce and cask ales sourced from Devon and Cornwall.

Venture further afield to the nearby village of Yelverton, home to a family-run pub housing three unique bars along with a well-stocked convenience store, perfect for picking up any forgotten essentials.

History buffs will enjoy a visit to the beautifully-maintained National Trust house of Buckland Abbey, dating back 700 years.

The thriving market town of Tavistock is within easy reach, where you can enjoy breath-taking views across the rooftops from the Grade II listed Tavistock Viaduct, test your swing at the 18-hole Tavistock Golf Club, and if you time it right, you can enjoy a leisurely stroll through the stalls of the farmers market.

Outdoor adventurers are spoilt for choice with the scenic landscapes of Dartmoor National Park and the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on your doorstep, ready to be explored.

With all of this and more, enjoy a countryside retreat with a stay at Rose Cottage.
