  • "Lovely stay at a lovely cottage."

    Not the easiest access by car down the lane to the cottage, despite beeing really careful still scraped the underside of thr car but this wasn't a problem as we went in and out the longer way round there after. Lovely welcone pack. Everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. River running alongside was lovely to hear whilst lying in bed. All in all a fantastic stay, thank you.

  • "Of the four cottages we holidayed via Sykes, this is the best."

    Very comfortable, well furnished, tastefully decorated. Incredible Welcome pack. The only negative is the road leading down to Zeal Cottage. Single narrow lane, three very bad potholes, and if you met another car approaching from the other end, then a difficult reversal. Awaiting Council repair.

  • "A lovely cottage in quiet and peaceful surroundings, with just the sound of birds and the river flowing outside; and the window seat in one of the bedrooms was a great place to enjoy both."

    The two en-suite shower rooms were great to have, and underfloor heating so comfortable. Centrally placed in Devon to be able to visit many of the surrounding areas and places of interest. A great stay.

  • "This was a spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean cottage."

    It was in a beautiful and quiet rural setting but very close to local facilities, main roads and a train line to Barnstable and Exeter. Our hosts were very welcoming, provided a thoughtful welcome pack and were on hand if we needed anything.

    The house is beautiful and despite it raining every day, we made sure to get out for some lovely walks and enjoyed the scenery that surrounds the cottage. Di and Chris are lovely hosts and clearly care about their guests. We will definitely come back! Thank you

  • "Zeal Cottage is beautifully maintained, positioned and is really home from home."

    The facilities are all extremely good quality and perfect for a group of 4, with plenty of open and airy space in the living/dining/kitchen areas and both the en-suite bedrooms. The laundry facitilies are excellent too and parking very easy. We stayed for 3 weeks and it was absolutely easy living for the whole time. The grounds are amazing, the peace is incredible and Di and Chris made us feel so welcome and at home, especially with an abundant welcome pack when we arrived. The cottage position is very central in Devon to allow access to the whole area of the county and Crediton is very handy for all things needed (car is essential). Lovely pubs, walks and scenery. Thank you Di and Chris for such a wonderful holiday experience and I have no hesitation in highly recommending a stay at Zeal Cottage.

    Very close to Dartmoor and also accessible to both north and south coast. The cottage itself was very clean and had everything you could possibly need in terms of appliances, utensils, towels, even down to toiletries etc. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch with so much in and the flowers were a special touch.

  • "Lovely accommodation, very comfortable and well equipped plus a lovely location."

    I would say though unless you have a high vehicle I would avoid following the owners directions as our Car grounded on the road going in on the lane leading to the property from the left, coming in from the right over over the small bridge was much better. Although there was a great external Laundry room there were steep stairs leading to it, would recommend walking round by the public footpath near the river to get to it. Plus no local walkable train station or shops, you need a car to get anywhere and most attractions were at least an hour/ hour and half away. Otherwise lovely hospitable owners and friendly dogs.

    Di did provide heaters after she came back from London and we could have showered in their annex. They both were very apologetic. The cottage was clean and well equipped. I did put it to Di that a focal fire under the tv would make it look cosier in winter. We did have a good time and hopefully will see them again.

    Much consideration had been put in place to ensure a comfy stay. Things like 1. Bath sheets instead of towels, in 2 colours so there was never a need to remember whose towel it was used by 2. A welcoming pack of essentials on arrival. Very much appreciated. 3. Kitchen is well equipped even with dishwashing detergent and tablets. Little stuff like that makes it feel just like home. 4. Peaceful and tranquil rural location. Nice to get away from the crowd. If we were to travel around that area again, we would love to stay in this place again. It’s a perfect 10 from us.

The towels were incredibly soft and thick, the pillows and mattresses were soooo confortable, we are now thinking of changing our own to get a better sleep! There were a laundry room with 2 washing machines and 2 dryers, which made washing clothes so efficient!
