  • "A clean, comfortable and well equipped property."

    A warm and friendly welcome on arrival. I enjoyed the opportunity to wander in the spacious and wildlife-friendly grounds. Many interesting places to visit within easy reach. A treat not to be missed was the Dartmouth Steam Railway and associated boat trip on the River Dart. Some visitors might resent the number of very narrow roads in the area but others (like me) would accept this as the price to pay for the rural location. The written travel directions for the immediate area are confusing and need revising : (1) the signs to the Mamhead Sensory Trail are not on the advised route and (2) it is important that visitors are advised to follow the road sign for Ashcombe at the top of the road on which the property sits.

  • "We arrived early due to the distance we travelled."

    Diane was very kind got our cottage ready early so we could get sorted with our unpacking. Some of the reviews are a bit harsh. Read a review about getting wet feet from wet grass, put some shoes on that normally works. Another about spiders and cobwebs really you are in the country. If you want a nice peaceful retreat then this is for you. We enjoyed our stay and Highley recommend. We hope to return in the future

  • "The cottage is cold and damp we had to wash all unworn clothes on return as they smelt musty."

    A dehumidifier was in conservatory. Central heating is controlled by owner and even though cold no heating would come on.The Owner will say there is heating but it does not come on & was fixed at 22 degrees. No radiators in bathroom to dry towels due to heating issues. Plug in towel rail given but not very good. Outside furniture old and unsuitable for use removed during our stay so we had no outside seating. No Gas BBQ. Conservatory has no tv and is cold at night as there is no radiator in that room even if it was on. so you use the bedroom as your lounge as it was the warmest and nicest room. Very comfortable bed and bedding which was great. Very nice bathroom with lovely shower. Only 1 small oven dish. No oven trays. Property dirty except main parts as not cleaned thoroughly. Lady owner was rude and obnoxious when trying to resolve heating issues and slammed phone down and issue was was resolved so we had a cold property week and no further contact made with us. We would definitely not recommend unless the above issues are resolved.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback. The owner has informed us that they have investigated the issues and advise as follows: The central heating in Jasmine is controlled inside the cottage. It is an entirely self-contained system and controlled by the thermostat inside the cottage by the guest. The Bathroom radiator is thermostatically controlled, if the ambient temperature is higher than the thermostat setting it is not likely to come on. The cottage is not damp. The kitchen is fully and properly equipped and everything is in working order. The TV is clearly advertised to be in the bedsitting room of the cottage., unfortunately placing the TV in the conservatory results in difficulty seeing the screen. The kitchen is fully and properly equipped, everything is in working order. There is a BBQ and garden furniture for each property at Magnolia Lake. Property Owner

    It was clean, well kept and comfortable. Diane the owner was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic week and were sad to leave, we will return again hopefully. The Jasmine is in lovely surroundings. Very peaceful. Gardens and walks close by. The Anchor pub, a short drive away serves delicious mussels!!

  • "The cottage very much failed to meet the description on the website."

    It was unkempt, damp and not very clean. The grass had bit been cut, the outside furniture was rusty and dirty. The only tv was in the bedroom. There was an all pervading smell and feeling of damp to the point that stainless steel itms like the cup holder and toilet roll holder were rusty. There were cobwebs everywhere and mould in the corners.

    Thank you for your feedback which we always welcome. We are surprised, not only because this is our first negative review, but also that you felt the cottage was damp as it has an auto heating system and is in a lovely sunny spot, The cottage has not been unoccupied and so heated constantly. Had you mentioned during your stay that you were unhappy, we would have been only to happy to help. We are a little confused by your rust comment as there is no cup holder in the bathroom. As mentioned to you before your arrival, there is one tv in the bedroom because you cannot see the picture in the conservatory clearly in summer months. Property Owner

  • "The location of the cottage was perfect and the cottage itself was of a high standard and very clean."

    It was well equipped, tastefully decorated and really exceeded our expectations. The host Diane was welcoming and very helpful during our stay and her knowledge of the local area was very good and helpful. We would have no hesitation in recommending Jasmin at Magnolia Lake and hopefully one day we may return.

  • "We had a magical, peaceful, restorative few days at Magnolia Lake."

    Jasmine is comfortable and well-equipped, with plenty of storage space. We loved being surrounded by trees and deliciously scented shrubs. We appreciated being invited to explore the beautiful grounds, sensitively managed in a way that encourages the thriving of rich biodiversity. Wild spring flowers, grey deer, red fox, owl... and long-tailed tits nesting just outside our window. It was wonderful being able to walk straight out into forest and heathland, from where we could see the ocean and Exe Estuary. This short holiday reminded me how vital woodland, peace and beauty are for heightened wellbeing, and I hope to return.
