  • "Charming, snug, warm, characterful, well equipped and remarkably quiet little cottage with the only slight drawback for me (elderly back problems) being low overheads and a steep narrow staircase."

    The most welcoming little village offers the Castle Inn just 2 mins walk away and serves excellent meals; there is also a fine little church right next door. Just 5 mins drive gives you the choice between Teignmouth or Dawlish sea fronts. An excellent stay and good value.

  • "Very comfortable cottage, everything you need is there, cosy lounge with wood burner."

    Nice comfy bed. The area is quiet and pretty, a short stroll up the road to the castle Inn, very nice but do not allow dogs in, which is a shame. A small church next to the cottage is sweet and could hear the congregation singing on Sunday morning. All in all a very nice time was spent at this lovely cottage.

  • "Lovely 17th century cottage in beautiful surrounding and less than 10 mins from Dawlish or Teignmouth ."

    The only problem we had was a 5 Deg downward slope on the treads of the staircase which we found to be quite unsafe . Otherwise a wonderful place to stay .

  • "Most holidays I’m ready to come home after 2 days, this was my first holiday I can remember I felt completely comfortable."

    I felt the area in general was a little uninspiring, but the accommodation made up for that.

  • "Our recent stay at Rose cottage was just lovely."

    It is perfectly located, being on the outskirts of Dawlish and Teignmouth, allowing peace and quiet after some busy days. I would certainly recommend Rose cottage, and look forward to staying there again in the future. King regards Jeff Yates.

  • "A quirky thatch cottage in a tranquil village, perfectly situated on the South Devon Riviera."

    We had a superb week of bright winter weather in early February, but were cosy at night due to the logburner in the lounge. Kitchen was not particularly ergonomic, and a bit draughty, but you have to expect that in a property of this age. Best was very comfortable. Can recommend Rose Cottage.

  • "Perfect cosy winter stay cottage."

    Very good location close to both Dawlish and Teignmouth. Just a short walk to Holcombe cove beach. Cottage very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Looking to book for next winter.

    The cottage was brilliant, only niggle would be that a separate countertop microwave would have been appreciated handy for heating things up quickly while oven in use

    Thanks for the feedback Sharon. There is a microwave in the combination oven but not a separate one as we judged the times it would be useful would be outweighed by the loss of worktop. Property Owner

  • "If you want your chocolate box, Devon thatched cottage then this is it."

    It was lovely, cosy, comfortable and well equipped. Everything we needed was there. In fact some things we took weren't needed as they had been provided. Loved the set up and it was certainly big enough for 3 people and a large dog. Would thoroughly recommend,

    Great Pub very close up the hill, 10 minutes down hill to the beach. Found some good dog friendly pubs and restaurants in Teighmouth. We had a great stay.

  • "The house is kept immaculately, with clever furniture choices to maximise space."

    It is also well resourced - you’ll have everything you need! The garden is lovely and the outhouse useful for an additional fridge. The ‘how to’ guide came in handy with details of the walks we could go on in the local area.

  • "This is a beautiful property in a great location and it is a credit to the owners."

    It is a beautifully presented, clean, well equipped cottage and we had no complaints with regards the cottage facilties or setting. It was lovely. It is also in a great location. It is a beautiful village, and the pub at the top is within walking distance, and serves good food and drinks. Great for the first night. We also liked the fact that it sits halfway between Dawlish and Teignmouth, with both easily accessible... either on foot or by bus. Thank you, and we look forward to hopefully staying again.

    Thank you for your kind words. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to you returning. Property Owner

  • "1. Step just as you come in should have something to distinguish that it is a step as having the same tile's in the hall and the kitchen you can not see the step 2."

    same in the kitchen in front of the arga 3. The back patio could do with some repair work as it is a bad trip hazard for slightly older people. 4.table and chairs outside could do with being replacing as they are not comfortable due to the fact that they have been repaired so often. 5.This is not a complaint this is an observation this holiday was taken at Rose cottage because it is pet friendly and has the public house so close.I think that you should inform people that the pub is not dog friendly. You can not take your dog inside you have to sit outside even if you are eating.

    Thank you for your comments which we absolutely take onboard as constructive criticism and I am glad that you were kind enough to rate us at 88% overall. The cottage is over 400 years old and we have tried to find a balance between ‘period charm’ and ‘modern expectations’. There are a couple of small steps and everything is not brand new but we will review what we have in place. The pub does accept dogs in their covered and heated outside area. Property Owner
