  • Mr Rattray

    “The cottage was extremely comfortable and spacious.”

    Welcome pack was also a very nice touch. It delivered everything we required and was ideally located for short trips to the coast and Dartmoor.

    Welcome pack was also a very nice touch. It delivered everything we required and was ideally located for short trips to the coast and Dartmoor. Only issue was the cottage was full of flies when we arrived and it took a while for us to get rid of them. Key holder did not seem that bothered, gave us some spray and said that it was that time of year !

    - Mr Rattray, October 2020

    Thank you for completing your feedback. We are glad that you had an enjoyable holiday. We are sorry to hear that you had a problem with flies during your stay. Cluster flies have been an issue at times during the year, especially with countryside properties. At this time of year when the weather is normally colder, the flies are dormant but if the weather should warm up then it brings them out of hibernation. As the owners live on site, they would have been happy to help if they had been made aware that the flies were continuing to be a problem. The owners want their guests to have a lovely time and will do all they can to help - Sykes owner relations

About the location

NEWTON ABBOT

Teignmouth 5 miles; Shaldon 5 miles; Torquay 10 miles; Exeter 18 miles; Plymouth 31 miles

Newton Abbot is situated in the heart of The English Riviera, with its mild climate and thriving palm trees. The ancient market town now offers plenty of modern shops, both local and well-known high street chains and six leading brand supermarkets. There's also a racecourse where National Hunt racing takes place from spring until autumn, with craft fayres during the winter. Newton Abbot has a unique pub, the tap house and bottle shop, located in the building of what was a traditional working malthouse offering arguably the finest bottled beers in Devon. The seaside towns of Teignmouth, Shaldon and Dawlish are nearby and are fantastic destinations for families. Spend a day on the beach building sand castles and walk the impressive Victorian Pier at Teignmouth. The National Trust houses of Bradley Manor, Coleton Fishacre and Compton Castle and many others are well worth a visit, whilst the highlight of your stay will undoubtedly be the stunning beaches around Torquay and the many hidden coves such as Meadfoot, Oddicombe and further afield the pretty Ness Cove. And of course, the South West Coast Path provides stunning seascapes across the bay, with a popular stretch from Torquay Harbour to Daddyhole Plain, passing through Beacon Cove where Agatha Christie used to swim as a girl. Newton Abbot provides a fabulous base for an English seaside holiday all year round.
