  • "A tiny but beautifully appointed cottage."

    We were luck with the weather and spent a lot of time reading in the garden, which was glorious. A very relaxing stay. We had a great meal at The Village Inn, Thurlestone.

  • "A real gem."

    We had an amazing holiday here at Honeysuckle Cottage. Bit of a mission following the recommended route to the property, but we found the best routes pretty swiftly. Parking was interesting on some occasions as the available closest spots were occupied, but we just parked in the place shown in the Handbook and walked through the churchyard. No problem. The cottage is exceptionally well equipped with good quality items. I did think it was a bit "over labelled" at first, but everything is there to point out what things are/where recycling goes, be aware of potential fire risk. We did find it helpful - specially the padded covering near the window in the bedroom! We could so easily have bumped into something on our way to the window for the stunning view. The cottage was really clean and tidy with what must be the cleanest cooker in any holiday let that we have ever used. It was good to see Eco products for our use and plenty of extra recycling bags etc. Everything has been very well thought through to make the best possible use of what is basically quite a small cottage. The garden is just wonderful. People in nearby cottages were lovely. We felt welcome. Thank you for letting us stay here.

  • "This was a cosy cottage that was spotless."

    It was a just the right size for a family of three. It was perfectly equipped and the little extra touches really meant alot,especially because we travelled a long way. I can't fault it. We had a great time.
