  • "WE thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The owners had done a lot to make the cottage comfortable and cosy with many thoughtful little touches. The kitchen was really very efficient and had everything we could want for cooking and eating in and we loved being so close to town that we could walk in to do our shopping. The weather was not conducive for sitting in the garden but it was lovely to be surrounded by so much greenery. Our only suggestion would be that they install another handrail on the other side of the steep stairs and to especially put one in the shower. If those were installed we would happily return.

  • "What a lovely cottage!"

    !! Perfectly positioned for both exploring the Moor and popping down the road for a wander round the shops and cafes of Tavistock. The kitchen I well equipped for contouring up quick snacks to creating a 3 course dinner and the provision of milk, bread etc. we're very welcome after my drive through Exeter in flash floods! Washing and drying facilities are a big bonus after a wet and windy hike around the Tors and oh...such a lovely comfortable bed. My dog enjoyed his vantage point from the top of the terraced garden which is a lovely spot to sit for a brew. I live in a rural area but hardly noticed the traffic on the Mount Tavy Road. Thank you so much x

  • "Cottage was good for 2 people and a dog, lovely that it was so close to Tavistock and did not need to drive."

    Lovely views from the garden over the town. Clean and welcoming.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage superbly located for both the town and Dartmoor."

    It was beautifully presented by the owners and the extra touches like bread, butter and milk on arrival and two baskets of logs were much appreciated. The enclosed garden was a great place for a drink or two in the sun and perfect for our dog. Despite proximity to the road we found it very peaceful and nice and quiet at night. The stairs are very steep but not a problem if you are able bodied, the driveway is quite tight for a large car but certainly doable and we found the mattress a bit hard but that is only our preference. Would definitely recommend this a great place to stay.
