    We had a welcome cream tea, which was appreciated after travelling. The Owners were also very welcoming & helpful. If you love the countryside, then this is the place for you. Also beaches not too far. A great stay. Also Buckfast Abbey well worth a visit.

  • "Owners made us feel so welcome and couldn't do enough for you."

    Property was lovely and clean and dog friendly with a secure garden. The welcome bottle of wine and cream tea was unexpected but a great surprise. Lovely quiet location which is what we were after. The only downside was the size of the tv in the living room, this was a portable tv and could have been larger. A part from that an excellent stay and lovely cottage will definitely recommend and will return.

  • "Lovely, comfortable, well equipped cottage in a beautiful location."

    The owners were very welcoming and friendly, the complimentary bottle of wine and the delicious cream teas were very welcome after a long drive and much appreciated. The garden was lovely and well looked after, the patio was a proper sun trap for a glass of wine at the end of the day. The food at the local pub was delicious and only 3 minutes walk away, with friendly helpful staff and great service. Lots to do in the area within easy driving distance, or enjoy the peace and quiet of the cottage. We have never stayed in a cottage which was so well equipped, there was nothing that we could criticise and we would highly recommend Teign View for a lovely holiday. Thank you so much Joan and Colin for a lovely place to stay.

  • "We felt paying a extra £35."

    00 per week was a rip off.The storage heaters at the cottage can on in the early hours of the morning so by the time we got up the storage heaters was only warm.We keep the doors all shut as required so when we can back from the days out it was only warm.So leaving the evening quite cold.All that was there also a electric fire that was in the lounge part only.Not a very happy customer.

    The comfort of our guests and the enjoyment of their stay at our property is extremely important to us which is why we always meet with our guests on the day of arrival to make sure that they are happy. What a pity that you did not contact us with your concerns. If you don't tell us you have a problem, how can we respond and put it right for you? Our contact details are on the welcome card and also in the information file and your attention was drawn to this when we popped over to say hello shortly after your arrival, advising you to get in touch should you subsequently find anything unsatisfactory, have a problem with the property or need help with anything at all. We arrived at Teign View shortly after your departure on Saturday morning and found the heating units to be working efficiently and the property nice and warm, as it was when we checked again in the evening, so we are at a loss to understand why you were cold. It is such a shame if you feel that this spoiled your holiday when all you needed to do was to phone and speak with us and we would have come straight over to remedy the situation. Property Owner

    The clean, well maintained cottage was trimmed up for Christmas which was a nice touch, plus the 'goodies' were very well rec'd, thank you! Kitchen was large & well stocked with all the utensils etc required. Massive secure garden for dogs to sniff around in, plus large variety of wildlife visiting the bird feeders.

    So often a property is listed as 'pet-friendly' but you arrive to find that although pets are allowed in the property, the garden is not safely fenced... The hamlet of Lower Ashton in the pretty Teign Valley is peaceful and its pub welcoming, with local beer and a good choice of well-cooked meals.

  • "Teign View is a lovely spacious, warm and comfortable bungalow with everything needed for a peaceful, relaxing holiday."

    We were met by Joan, the owner who showed us around and gave us the rundown on everything. She left us with a stack of goodies and treats for the dogs, all of which was very much appreciated after a long journey. Our two dogs enjoyed the freedom of the garden and the river walk down the road, and it was useful to have a back entrance and an area to clean and dry them. The pub across the road do excellent meals and everybody we met in Lower Ashton, and elsewhere, were very friendly. Although the place is quiet and peaceful there is lots to see and without going too far. All in all a lovely holiday with superb weather. Would highly recommend and would definitely go back again.
