  • "We loved out cottage."

    The interior was so well designed by the owner’s architect father. The owners Jo and Nick are delightful and gave us any help we needed. The property is very pretty with very nice gardens and good walks through the farm and surrounds. We will definitely come back again.

  • "The accommodation was in a very remote position and although this was hinted at in the description it was not made clear until the key collection details were received and had this information been made clearer in the initial description it may have influenced our choice."

    It was very hard to find but having said that after a quick call to the owners they were extremely helpful in getting us to our destination.

  • "This cottage is like a lovely hideaway surrounded by beautiful flowers, trailing plants, and trees."

    The view from the light and airy sitting room takes in the surrounding fields and marvellous Devon countryside. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners - nothing was too much trouble - and treated to homemade scones and jam with clotted cream and a bottle of extra special milk from a local farmer. Everything was just perfect - even the adorable pygmy goat had two kids during our stay and it was so sweet to see them jumping about in the field. We had a marvellous holiday and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this wonderful place.

  • "Lovely space in a converted barn within a beautiful courtyard."

    Very comfortable accommodation but there were a few niggles with lights not working properly that a bit more attention to detail would sort out - but nothing major. Lovely area well positioned for the coast and excellent walking.

  • "This is the third time we have stayed at Averton Gifford and have enjoyed ourselves on every occasion."

    The last time we stayed at the Gallery where we had another enjoyable experience. greeted by fresh scones, clotted cream a bowl of freshly laid eggs and flowers on the table. The surrounding area is very beautiful with sheep, chickens, goats and a peacock. The approach is by a long winding road. Situated near several costal results. I would highly recommend any of these properties.

  • "This was our second time at the Gallery and even though the weather wasn't as perfect as last year we had just as good a time."

    The barn is perfectly set up, spotlessly clean and the upside down design works really well with the view from the lounge out on to the garden and the sheep fields. There's plenty of space in the communal grounds to kick a ball around and it was lovely to wander the fields inspecting the lambs! Jo and Nick have created such a lovely place for visitors to really relax and feel welcome. Aveton Gifford is a friendly little village and a great base for exploring the South Hams. There are so many good coastal and country walks to be done, an abundance of good pubs in the surrounding area and Kingsbridge is nearby with great facilities and restaurants, so you really are spoiled for choice if you don't want to venture too far. We still feel like we've not seen everything, so we will no doubt be back again!
