  • "We very much enjoyed our stay at Michaelmas Cottage."

    It really is a home from home with everything you need for a relaxing holiday, from comfortable beds, leather sofas and a kitchen with every gadget and utensil you will need. The location is stunning with its own walled garden and only a short, albeit uphill, walk to the village with a little shop and a quaint little pub that is well worth a visit or two. Stunning walks out to Fingle Bridge Pub and if you like your cycling be prepared for hills a plenty! Highly recommended and we will be back for sure.

  • "Thank you for a lovely stay."

    Such a beautiful cottage and location. Was perfect for the occasion.

    Mrs NealeNov 2021

  • "Great space full of character and really well kitted out."

    Love the big dining/kitchen ideal for our two dogs and the big lounge with Netflix and a big TV - ideal for me. The upstairs was really good with the conversion from two cottages resulting in two independant bedroom suites and bathrooms, The huge walled garden was beautiful, and would have been enjoyed more if the weather was warmer. Friendly local pub with food 5min away welcoming dogs as well!

    One thing which would have been helpful is to be able to switch radiator on in bathrooms to dry towels - we had good weather so were able to put them outside, otherwise they’d always be damp

  • "The cottage was beautiful and location was amazing."

    Facilities were great though unfortunately the washing machine broke down whilst we were there. The owner tried to get it replaced for us and arranged for us to have a bottle of wine in recompense. The welcome pack was also very generous.

  • "Lovely cottage and great place to stay with local walks."

    Shame that the local pub has shut down but plently of good pubs close by.

    Mr WorthyJul 2021

  • "The house keeper is amazing."

    Spotless property as always.

    Mr CoplestonJun 2021

  • "We thought the garden was lovely."

    Also, it would be helpful to leave the information folder where it can be seen. We found it rather late on and missed some information on putting rubbish out.

    Mr PorterApr 2021

  • "Wonderfully welcoming haven with easy access to some of the best walks on Dartmoor."

    Easy access off the moor to reach nearest beaches and City of Exeter together with arterial road and rail networks. Very enjoyable, relaxing Christmas ... thank you.

  • "The cottage was delightful, very comfortable and cosy but still plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 children."

    Huge kitchen, lovely large table would seat 8 with no problem. There is almost every possible cooking implement in this kitchen, however we couldn't find a pair of tongs (minor thing). Nice secure garden with ample space for the dogs to wander. The split of the bedrooms is ideal as it allows for an element of privacy if required. The cream tea that was there for us upon arrival was lovely except for the cream, something was not right about it!! Not a complaint but whoever supplies it might be worth double checking. Something that might be worth putting in the information is that there is a large amount of books and magazines available to read, DVDs, games suitable for adults and children and several jigsaws. This information would have been helpful to us as we took a lot of things in order to keep the children entertained in case of bad weather, but we wouldn't have if we had known there were things at the cottage. Again, not a complaint just an observation to help others in the future. Overall a wonderful week at a lovely cottage.

The property

This pretty, thatched cottage is tucked away on the edge of the picturesque Devon village of Drewsteignton, just 400 yards from the pub and village shop.

One of three lovely cottages hidden from the lane, it is brilliantly peaceful.

From the garden, you step into a big kitchen with dining area, and from there through an arch into a lovely cosy sitting room with electric stove.

In traditional style, two separate staircases lead you upstairs, one to two bedrooms with a bathroom, the other to two more bedrooms with shower room.

The two upstairs spaces don't connect, so are handily private for two families or couples.

The lawn garden is charming, enclosed by high walls and with loungers and table and chairs for relaxing in the sun.

This is a lovely area for walking, with footpaths criss crossing through woodland and beside the River Teign.

Enjoy drinks or a meal at the riverside inn, visit National Trust Castle Drogo, browse the interesting little shops in Chagford or head for city thrills in the cathedral city of Exeter, just 14 miles away.

Michaelmas Cottage is a peaceful place for a relaxing break or Devon walks.
