  • "The cottage was in a very peaceful location and was comfortable and well equipped."

    The downside of the cottage for us was that it needed a deep clean as it smelt musty on entering the cottage. The bed framework on the king size bed could do with a good clean. The other problem for us being a mature couple was the lack of direct access from the car to the cottage for unloading and loading the car.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased you found our property to be peaceful, comfortable, and well equipped. On immediate inspection, nowhere in The Blue House was identified as being dirty, usually after cleaning, there could be a faint odour of polish. The bed framework mentioned, is a carved rococco style bed, which is painted white with shabby chic highlights, quite the up-market finish, and not at all dusty. As you parked outside of Jasmine you were closer than the normal parking area, which had no steps or uneven surfaces. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was perfect for our relaxing week's stay in Devon."

    It is comfortable, well-equipped and clean, and the surrounding grounds are very peaceful. It was a surprise to see deer wandering around the grounds too. It was good to meet Diane on arrival too. Whilst it is a rural location it is only a few minutes away from the main road so the towns and beaches of Dawlish and Teignmouth are just a short drive away, and the rest of the Torbay coast is easily reachable.

    Thank you so much for your lovely omments. We are so pleased you had a lovely stay here at Magnolia Lake with us and were comfortable and cosy in The Blue House. We will hope to welcome you again. Diane Property Owner

  • "Such a lovely little property."

    A benefit of the no-pets policy meant that a) I didn't have to take antihistamines and b) wildlife in the local forest areas was more diverse. The sounds of the birds in the trees made the stay really special. Owner always available and very helpful.
