The standard of fittings, furniture etc is high given it is used as a holiday let. I met David who Co owns this property, and he was friendly and gave the impression that nothing would be too much trouble if you asked him. Unfortunately my wife took ill during our stay and we had to cut our visit short. But just as soon as we are fit and able we will return. Reviewed by Mark5.0★Nov 2023 "Excellent holiday accommodation." Top spec fixtures and fittings, loved the hot tub. Hosts are wonderfully helpful and friendly. Did not want our holiday to end it was so wonderful. Reviewed by Angela5.0★Sep 2023 "The cottage has everything you would need and more, very comfortable & a lot of thought has gone into the furnishings." Nice welcome gift of choccies, cider, prosecco which we found in the kitchen, thankyou. Ideal location too and plenty of places to eat nearby plus a Morrisons to do a grocery shop Our only disappointment was there was no meet & greet, so noone to explain to us oldies how everything worked. I did text the owners on our first evening as we couldnt figure out how the hot tub worked despite the 12 step guide leaflet, he did reply quickly and said they were away until Wed but did text a few tips, but it was beyond us, as we've never used one before, so no hot tub which is why we booked that cottage He did pop round Wed when they got back but with the storm due to arrive, we left for our 7hr trip home, so too late for us. Maybe get a friend or family to do the initial meet & greet when youre away in the future as thats important to us ? Reviewed by Diane5.0★Sep 2023 "Lovely country cottage with everything you need." Nice and spacious in a quiet rural area. A drive out to the coast but not too far. Country pub and shop close by. Reviewed by Tracy5.0★Aug 2023 "A beautiful cottage with everything you could wish for to make your holiday perfect." Lovely friendly host David. Reviewed by Rachel5.0★Jun 2023 "This is a very spacious holiday home." Well equipped and even though the property is within the grounds of the owners garden it is totally separate having it has its own pathway and is not overlooked. Lovely views across the country side. We both loved being able to relax in the hot tub of an evening. Had a great time and would recommend this place. Reviewed by Tony5.0★Jun 2023 "Fantastic accommodation and hosts." Location was wonderful with plenty of beaches a short drive away and some nice local walks. Thank you to the owners for the lovely welcome gift, recommendations and the best holiday.

Reviewed by Emma5.0★Aug 2022 "We had a lovely stay at Northlands Country Cottage and we didn’t want to come home!" The welcome gifts were very gratefully received and the hosts were extremely friendly. Dave showed us how to keep the hot tub up to temperature and gave us some top tips for exploring the local area. Our favourite things about the accommodation: - the reclining sofa and the space upstairs - Spacious bedrooms with plenty of storage space - Loved the roof terrace and hot tub Why we loved the area: - we liked being in close proximity to Plymouth but also close to countryside and beaches - The waterfront area in Plymouth (Barbican) is really nice with bars and restaurants (park at Harbour car park and then walk round) - We loved Wembury for walks and lovely beach. Anything that could’ve made it better: - no dishwasher which I hadn’t realised but it was fine just the three of us and having simple meals - There is road noise from the village road, again didn’t spoil our stay but I thought we were slightly more rural - Attention to detail with some of kitchen equipment and crockery etc, just a couple of cracks and chips in glasses, and the kitchen knives were blunt so quite hard to chop even grapes Reviewed by Rebecca4.7★Aug 2022 "A great holiday home, immaculate and has everything you need." The lazy spa was a real treat! As was the lazy boy sofas. David the owner was very helpful and friendly, the champagne and cider was very much appreciated!

It is even more lovely than the pictures on the listing do it justice for! It was spotless on arrival. The beds were really comfortable. The lazy boy chairs in the lounge were amazing, so nice to relax in in the evening after a busy day out. The hot tub was lovely, and a big hit with the kids! It was a real home from home, it had everything you would need. The kitchen was equipped with everything you would need, even a cafetiere for that much needed morning coffee. We were also left a little welcome package of drinks, chocolates, and milk, and some tea and coffee, lovely after a long drive down from Manchester. The grounds around the cottage are gorgeous, and the path from the car to the cottage is really cute with lots of different animal statues which the kids enjoyed finding. There is also a great pub, a 2 minute walk, which served lovely food. We really had the best week, and were so sad to have to return home. I wouldn't think twice about booking again if we were to come back to the area. Thank you! Reviewed by Hollie5.0★Apr 2022 "The cottage was definitely a 5 star experience."

Just want to say thank you and we will certainly be visiting again. Reviewed by Paula5.0★May 2019 "The cottage exceeded expectations." My wife is obsessed with cleanliness, and the initial arrival at a place of stay is always a nervy time for me (I’m the one who always books), as her reaction sets the mood for the duration of the stay. So we were both delighted with the immaculate presentation of the cottage. The lounge area is an absolute joy to relax in, with a very comfortable almost fully reclining sofa and huge tv if you’re having an evening in. The hot tub was great to unwind in after all our days hiking (we hadn’t anticipated the weather to be so good so decided to make the most of it!). The cottage is located near enough everything but still felt out of the way and secluded. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Brixton, we would thoroughly recommend a week or longer here!

Real thought has gone into making this house a wonderful holiday home. The bbq was great too, we had a couple of evenings when we enjoyed a bbq.
