  • "Wow! What a lovely cozy completely refurbished cottage with all our needs catered for."

    We originally wanted a cottage with a real fire but we both loved the real like electric fire and decided it was better without the hassle of making it up after long walks bagging tors. The kitchen was more than fully equipped and everything was very good quality as the owners have a real detail for providing the best. The garden was lovely with the seating area but too cold for us to use but be lovely in the summer. Big spacious bedrooms with large king size beds and one en suite and even though we were almost on the Main Street it was very quiet. We loved the location being in the centre of Chagford with a good selection of artisan shops and being opposite Blacks the most amazing deli where we bought soups and cakes for our walks and three really lovely food pubs - The Three Crowns, The Globe and our favourite The Chagford Inn. We also recommend breakfast in The Old Forge Cafe. There’s an excellent wine shop selling local beer and cider and a bakery, greengrocers and butchers. We particularly loved the bell ringing on Tuesday evening for 90 minutes. We also managed to park on the street for free. We notice from the visitors book that many people stay for a second time and we can see why! Thank you to our hosts for making such a wonderful holiday stay

    Hi Trudy - Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review, it’s wonderful for us to know we’ve done a good job, and importantly it’s reassuring to potential guests. We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday and hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Totally positive experience overall, the cottage is lovely and cosy and we didnt need to put the heating on at all, just the little electric heater in the front room for short periods of time."

    Beautifully equipped kitchen, thank you for all the extra bits that were provided. An extra side table would be great in the living room and also the lock on the bathroom door downstairs was a little sticky and sometimes didnt work and the bath was very slow to drain. Really minor issues to be honest and it was really lovely to meet you!

    We're very glad you enjoyed your stay in Church Cottage. We always want to improve and have acted on your feedback - there is now a nest of coffee tables instead of just one and the bathroom lock has been adjusted. The bath drain has been checked and is working, the pop up plug just needed a little adjustment which has also been done. We hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

    V., even house keeper could not help.

    Apologies, to hear you had problems with the TV, the housekeeper did attend and although was not able to resolve at the time, she leave you a message which you may have missed due to your early departure as a result of the rail strikes. The issue has now been corrected. Property Owner

  • "Immaculate, stylish, well-designed accommodation."

    A perfect base for exploring Dartmoor. Only one minor quibble as regards facilities: although the water from the hot tap of the wash basin in the bathroom was always piping hot, the water from the hot tap of the bath itself was never better than lukewarm. Perhaps someone could take a look at the plumbing to see if the hot water situation could be improved. (I'm happy for my feedback to be published without the minor reservation regarding the hot water supply to the bath).

    Thank you very much for your positive review. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay in Church Cottage. It’s a lovely spot. We are following up the issue you reported with the bath and hope it didn’t spoil your stay. Property Owner

    The upstairs was spacious but the downstairs a little small. We would certainly re-visit the cottage and recommend it to anyone, the village is beautiful along with the people. The pubs, restaurants and shops are excellent.

    We thought the interior was beautifully presented and the garden was also gorgeous. The cottage had all the amenities / facilities that we needed for our stay and was really well equipped. We didn't have any problems with parking, we parked either on the street or in the public car park which is a short walk from the cottage. Thank you for a lovely stay, I'm sure we will be back in the future.
