  • "Perfect setting."

    The cottage was newly decorated pictures on the website do not do it justice.

  • "The wonderful countryside views from the windows at the front of the property, specially the bedroom we slept in."

    That panoramic window is magnificent! There was also a decent, large screen TV in the lounge. The property was well appointed and decorated - and quiet!!

  • "Little Greenhayes is in a lovely quiet setting, with a pretty outlook, including rabbits and woodpeckers in the garden."

    It was spotlessly clean and there was plenty of kitchen equipment and other useful touches, such as extra spades for the beach. Would recommend.

  • "A great place and a thoughtful owner."

    It's down very narrow lanes and some might not like driving along them. However, we very much enjoyed the remoteness and the stunning views. There's a local shop,church, chapel and pub serving meals.

  • "The property was well furnished and very comfortable."

    Rooms were very sizeable compared to other properties we have rented in the past, in fact it was a pleasant holiday all together. Very easy to find, directions given by owner were perfect, and access to the coast within minutes. There was not a thing I could complain about, a wonderful holiday.

  • "Very quiet property down lots of narrow lanes."

    No streetlights it was perfect for us and we slept well and all your comforts of home are there. We were greeted by owner and must admit though you are joined to their property we did not feel we were intruding into their lives or them into our holiday, we were very private with our own gate and front door. Lovely little garden to sit out in, it is such a lovely property and location, though you are in the country beaches and places of interest are not too far away.

  • "The cottage was very clean and provided everything we could need during our stay."

    The owner was very friendly and most accommodating. The views were picturesque and the location was very quiet. There were plenty of places to visit within a short travelling distance and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I am unable to think of anything more that could have improved it.

    It really does have the 'wow factor'! It was equipped to a high standard and was spotless throughout, it felt like a real home from home, just what we needed for our week break in Devon. We would highly recommend Little Greenhayes.
