  • "We like this cottage very much - well equipped, comfortable and very convenient for lots of lovely places."

    We had a minor problem, but it was dealt with very quickly and efficiently - most impressed!

  • "The only thing I would suggest to the owner is there was no mattress protecor on one of the beds used and one or two of the pillows also."

    For hygiene reasons this is very important especially in today's post covid concerns.

  • "Cowslip cottage is one of a group of converted farm buildings, making high quality holiday let's."

    The site grounds are very picturesque, beautifully kept in a very private, quiet setting with Ample parking. Owners very welcoming. Cowslip sleeps 6, bedrooms on floors 2 & 3, with enormous bed, tv and ensuite on top floor. Bed extremely comfortable. Ground floor has living room, diner, kitchen. Comfortable, well equipped, all appliances, excellent WiFi. Highly recommended. The area is outstandingly pretty. Well worth visit Dartmouth, ferry's and boat trips and beyond to Kingswear, Torquay, Paignton, Brixham. Had a fabulous relaxing week, perfect for a recharge.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Cowslip Cottage and would definitely come back again."

    The listing was accurate. Bedrooms were comfortable, and the master bedroom was particularly spacious. The cottage was well equipped, with the small exception of a metal roasting tin which the housekeeper very kindly provided. There were a couple of things - the extractor fan in the kitchen was not working, so the smoke alarm kept going off. The shaving light in the master bedroom did not work and it was a bit dark in the bathroom without it. We mentioned both to the housekeeper who said that some refurbishment was taking place shortly so hopefully they get repaired. Also the wall lights in the lounge did not work. This did not detract from our stay - the house was comfortable and we would recommend it to others

  • "Lovely, cosy cottage."

    Lovely surprise to find it had been decorated for Christmas! Definitely recommend taking a torch in winter months; the lanes are very dark and uneven. Would recommend this cottage for a quiet getaway.

    Lovely beaches around. The lanes sat nav tells you to follow are not for the feint hearted ! Much easier journey to follow A roads to Kingsbridge.

  • "Cowslip Cottage was absolutely perfect!"

    I’ve never been in such a well-equipped holiday rental, and it felt genuinely cosy with its wood-burning stove, really comfortable beds and homey touches likes the little mice (decorative, not real!) in the kitchen walls. Brilliant location for trips to Salcombe, Brixham, Bantham and Hope Cove. Lovely bakery a short walk away (pain au chocolat and pasties v much recommended). Fab pond with tadpoles was popular with the kids!

    A delightful place to stay, we arrived in shocking weather just before Christmas and as we pulled up outside we could see the Christmas tree through the window with the lights on ready and waiting we would definitely be happy to return to Cowslip cottage and will also use Sykes cottages next time we are looking for somewhere

    For instance there is no bottlebank as suggested in Frogmore.

  • "We loved the quiet surroundings, yet we were within a short drive to good facilities."

    There were quite a lot of steps leading down to the cottage, the nearest toilet is on the first floor and the rooms are over three levels. Having said that, we did expect that when booking and it didn’t spoil our time spent in the welcoming cottage. We had a lovely time!

  • "Only remark is that TV could be upgraded as very basic and on a couple of occasions we couldn't get all the channels."

    Otherwise the kitchen is well equipped and we found the accommodation very comfortable and the location beautiful as well as peaceful.

  • "The cottage was well equipped and beautifully presented, a home from home."

    The top bedroom provided me a perfect sanctuary for some much needed rest and relaxation. The area is beautiful and the people we met friendly. I have to thank the owner and Sykes Cottages for the very swift resolution of the tap issue.

  • "Cottage was of very high standard throughout and very well equipped."

    Even birthday candles which we used twice in our weeks stay! Only slight problem was steps down to cottage which my elderly father found tricky. Otherwise would definitely book again.

  • "We enjoyed our holiday at Cowslip Cottage."

    However correction of small points would have made it even better. There are no locks on the bathroom or toilet doors which could have been embarrassing. Some of the doors need attention as they do not fit well. Whilst we were there we had an electrical failure of one section for no apparent reason. It took some time to discover the location of the fuse box and reset the circuit breaker. (One of our party is a competant electrician). The only other comment is that the lounge furniture is very bulky and can only comfortably seat five not six. Although we had a good holiday we would not want to return to Cowslip Cottage as we would look for somewhere a bit more spacious. Thank you and best wishes.

About the location


Kingsbridge 4.1 miles; Salcombe 9.1 miles

The picturesque village of Frogmore, located at the head of Frogmore Creek, is surrounded by stunning countryside and is just three miles from the pretty market town of Kingsbridge and a 10-minute drive from Slapton Sands, which makes it a fantastic holiday destination for those looking for a tranquil spot that’s in easy reach of a range of attractions. Walking from Frogmore to West Charleton along the water’s edge is a great way to see the creek before turning inland and heading north through West Charleton. This pretty village is well-known for its excellent bakery, traditional pub, beautiful creek and perhaps most of all, it’s family-focused annual regatta in August.
