  • "We would like to thank Andy and Charmaine for a wonderful stay at The Mews."

    We felt we were in the perfect location to explore easily while having a peaceful stay in a rural setting. The property had everything we needed and more, we were particularly impressed with the kitchen facilities. We will definitely recommend to friends and hope to return soon!

  • "Had an amazing stay at the Mews and would love to go back again."

    Warm welcome with smiles from the owners and lots of information and scones with clotted cream and jam. Owners are very helpful and friendly. The Mews is fully equipped and spotlessly clean, the photos don't do it justice, and it's perfect for exploring Dartmoor and nearby Torquay and beaches. My daughter loved feeding the lambs on site with farmer Geoff, who was brilliant with her. Cannot fault the mews and it's owners who went out of their way to make our little break memorable. Thank you so much. Can't recommend the mews highly enough.

    Thank you so much for this fabulous feedback. It was a pleasure having you here. Andy and I take a great pride in The Mews and don't just see it as a business, our reward is meeting great guests like yourselves Please thank Thea and Oscar for the beautiful picture We would love to see you return and maybe experience some sunny beach days Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at the Mews."

    A very warm welcome from Andy and Charmaine - home-baked scones (delicious), helpful tips on the apartment and local area and friendly chats through the week. The apartment was really comfortable and kitted out with all we needed. Great location surrounded by nature (lots of bird varieties, cute lambs and sheep and we even saw a couple of fawns on the lane early one morning!), close enough to Bovey for shops and activities and a short drive to Dartmoor for wilder exploration.

    The annexe was very comfortable, immaculately clean and welcoming - and it was very well equipped. Andy and Charmaine went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay, including putting up Christmas decorations and very kindly baking us a Christmas cake! The Mews is close to local amenities and well situated for lots of great local walks which our two dogs absolutely loved. Thanks again for being so welcoming Andy and Charmaine! We hope to be back again soon.

  • "The property was very well maintained and was really comfortable."

    The owners were very nice and scones were delicious. The downside for us was that the garden was not fully enclosed and not allowing the dogs to wee or poop in the garden was a bit unusual. We book cottages twice a year with gardens, for the ease of taking dogs. The latter element drives the rating given.

    Hi Janine Thank you for your comments and we are sorry you found it constricting for your dogs. We prefer to keep the lawn excrement free in view of the fact we have guests with young children, often playing on the grass. This is why we invite guests to use the grassy lane adjacent to the garden Thank you for visiting with us and take care Property Owner

    I hope to stay here again. The house was clean and comfortable and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. The house is well equipped and there is a lovely fireplace which we used most nights. The house is a comfortable temperature anyway without using the fireplace. A very modern bathroom and a modern country house feel throughout the property. The house stands on at an excellent location, set back from the main roads and amongst a pleasant farm. Bovey Tracey is nearby. My friend and I visited Dartmoor National Park on every day of the trip. The views from the main bedroom window are lovely, looking over green space where wildlife can sometimes be seen. I hope to stay here again.

  • "Four adults and one dog enjoyed a very comfortable week in The Mews."

    Andy and Charmaine were very friendly and welcoming but didn’t crowd us at all. The Mews is in a good location and feels remote enough to be peacefully quiet but only 15 mins away from Bovey Tracey and shops. Ducks and geese were our neighbours! Ideal for a recharging holiday. Nice and clean, very warm with plenty of hot water. The outside tap is a real bonus for washing muddy paws after walkies. Dog leg-stretching a little bit limited without walking down the lane but Andy mentioned plans to expand the fenced area which would give dog-guests more space to roam. He also offered to dog-sit if we wanted to go out, which although we didn’t need to take advantage of this time is still really appreciated. Lovely fresh scones (huge!), a pot of jam and clotted cream awaited us on arrival which started our Devon holiday in the best way. We look forward to our next visit!
