  • "Blue Cottage was the cleanest cottage I have ever stayed in, the "welcome pack" was most generous."

    It was only a five minute walk to an amazing pub/restaurant in a pleasant village.

  • "We loved everything about Bluebell Cottage the minute we walked in."

    It is very well equipped for a self catering venue, plenty of kitchen utensils, different sizes of pots and pans, more than three kinds of glasses, a fridge with a small freezer compartment, washing up kit, the list goes on. A nice welcome package including bread, butter and milk + coffees and teas. The cottage is very cosy and clean with a lovely garden with chairs and tables and a pool and sun loungers. The beds are very comfy, the shower powerful enough for long haired ladies and the open living room/kitchen good for socialising while cooking. The location is perfect, very quiet, the two local pubs within walking distance up the hill (much better to walk downhill after a drink lol), a play park nearby that my 8 and 11 year old loved and that provided lovely views. The Olde Smokey House seems to be renown in the area for their carvery. There are also leaflets and recommendations for local takeaways in the cottage but we didn't get round to trying them although that was the plan at the start of the holiday :) We made trips to Paignton and Brixham and other nearby areas and took the local country bus to Torbay which was a short ride but check the time for the last bus back just in case. I had two children (8 and 11 year olds) with me, they loved the cottage and the pool and now we just need to decide when we'll go back. We had a lovely holiday, thank you! :)

  • "Lovely cottage everything you need available."

    Clean well equipped good location. Host was great, welcome basket and flowers a lovely touch. Unfortunately weather didn't allow us to use outside facilities but all looked excellent. If we had a request it would be for a king size bed, but space might not allow in the cottages...

  • "We absolutely enjoyed our short break at Bluebell, what a beautiful, cosy cottage."

    Everything you could want was provided, including luxurious white bath towels and sheets from M&S. We were warmly greeted by Lisa and Rob, the owners, and inside the cottage, was a welcome pack that went above and beyond what we have previously had - teas, coffee, hot chocolate, sugar, small pots of jam and marmalade,biscuits and a delicious loaf of bread. In the fridge we found bottled water, butter and milk. The gardens are a delight and the pool an added bonus, especially if you have young children. A great location for touring south Devon. We will not hesitate to recommend Millman's Cottages and hope to return ourselves to enjoy a stay in one of the other amazing cottages.

  • "A lovely property well maintained and clean with additional welcome pack which was delightful."

    On a personal level I would list that the stairs are a little tricky for anyone with mobility issues, having recently suffered an injury to my foot I found them quite a challenge. However having made the booking pre accident it wasn't appropriate to make this an issue. Will definitely recommend to others.

    Quiet area within a short distance of main seaside towns. Cottage clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Gardens were a lovely place to relax and the pool was an obvious bonus.

  • "Cottage was better than advertised."

    Everything had been considered, making the cottage a home from home. The welcome pack was very generous including bread, milk, butter, tea, coffee, sugar and more. Warm welcome on arrival then left to enjoy our holiday although we knew how to get hold of someone should the need arise as the owners live on-site. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return again, if available when we need it.

  • "Can’t praise the owners enough."

    Had an incredible trip with some work colleagues. The accommodation is amazing clean tidy well stocked, the nice card, milk, tea and biscuits from the host was a lovely touch. We had some car trouble on the day of leaving and they couldn’t do any more to help us wether that was giving us more time to pack or wether it was helping us find tools. The hosts are a lovely family who are all working full time whilst being amazing hosts too. Guys I wish you all the success you were amazing and we will be back again. Thanks

  • "Bluebell cottage was well appointed, warm and comfortable."

    The welcome pack and lovely fresh flowers were much appreciated. We enjoyed our stay even if the stormy weather was not what we wanted. Which resulted in us spending more time in the cottage than perhaps we would have done if conditions were better. Paul and Biddy
