    • “Perfect Stay”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This cottage is clean & lovely & with everything we could have needed, and hosts Garth & Mandy couldn’t have been more helpful. It’s just perfect for couples or good friends (the wardrobe rail for both rooms is in the 2nd bedroom which is actually quite OK – but obviously requires some familiarity between the occupants!) The garden is sunny for most of the day with outdoor seating & an interesting veg garden. The dining room is small but big enough for 2 & the patio doors give a nice ‘best of both worlds’ for eating. The village itself is really friendly – we chatted to quite a few people during our stay & the nearby Drake’s Manor pub does excellent food & ale. Parking wasn’t a problem either - we didn’t actually use the dedicated parking as the church car park can be used (first come, first served) apart from when there’s a church service. If you prefer not to drive there’s a daytime bus service to the edge of the village from Tavistock though we didn’t get chance to try it out or quite work out the route/timetable. There’s plenty to do in the area – there’s a footpath from behind the church to the Garden House, Buckland Abbey is less than a mile away (both are a must do) & the village church is well worth a visit. If you like walking/cycling it’s not far from Drake’s trail , Walkham valley & Dartmoor National Park - you actually drive through a little bit of the park to get to the village from the main road (watch out for the ponies). A couple of tiny things to be aware of – there was no phone signal in the house – though it was fine from the car park across the road & the cottage has wifi so no great problem & there are a couple of steps between the bedrooms & bathroom if you’re a night wanderer. The other is that the very last bit of the road to the village is quite narrow (ie with passing places) – but in South Devon most of the best places seem to be down the narrowest of roads (Cotehele is 20 times worse than the Buckland road!). All in all a wonderful, relaxing stay. Highly recommended.”

    • “I don't think anywhere has actually exceeded our expectations before. The WOW factor on entering the living room, with its log burning stove and well thought out mood lighting, was a great place to unwind with a bottle of wine in the evenings. Well, every evening actually! The kitchen: I have never seen a rented accommodation with such an array of high quality appliances, especially the cooker. It's the same make as ours but with one more burner (6) and a warming plate. Great fun! The double bed has a mattress that started sorting out my back pain on night one, so we're off to John Lewis today to buy one like it. Overall, a very good stay in a quiet location on the Moors and ideally placed to visit the well known spots of Devon and Cornwall. Just a hundred yards away, there is an excellent pub, the Drake Inn. Fresh local beers and very, very good food. The property owners are close by if help is needed, and they are genuinely helpful. If we were to be ultra picky, the kitchen needs more plug sockets but that really is it! Ella and Cliff”

    Mr Woodthorpe, Colchester, January 2019

    • “Wonderful cottage, beautiful village, had everything we could possibly need. Gorgeous!”

    Mr Norman, Ruislip, December 2018

    • “We have stayed in this cottage before so knew what to expect. First time we used the log burning stove which was very efficient and made the cottage warm and cosy. Had everything you could expect and was an ideal home from home which is what we required.”

    Mr Ferris, London, November 2018

    • “The cottage was extremely comfortable and well-appointed. I've stayed in a number of Helpful Holiday properties before and this was up to the usual high standard. I would stay here again.”

    Mr Till, Ashford, November 2018

    • “The cottage was really lovely, comfortable and stylish inside. We were made to feel very welcome and had a great stay.”

    Mrs Smith, Halesowen, October 2018

    • “The cottage was perfect for our needs and had everything we could have wanted. The village was friendly with a great local pub which did good food and drink. There is no shop in the village but Yelverton, a short drive away, was able to meet most daily requirements.”

    Mr Ferris, London, September 2018

    • “For anyone seeking a quiet relaxing holiday then this could be for you, however having a six year old we were out and about all the time but the cottage was a welcoming place. Garth and Mandy have tastefully decorated the cottage as a cottage should be given the history in the village. With its spacious kitchen/diner, snug living room and two good sized bedrooms this is a must. With The Drake Manor Inn offering very good food (my daughter said the best chips ever) and a very good selection of local ales and apple juice you do not need to go far for lunch or an evening meal. All in all this cottage and location just off the Moor deserve 11/10 on all counts.”

    Mr Wells, Sutton, August 2018

    • “Lovely cottage and hosts, beautiful village. The cottage was cosy yet modern with great facilities and near to a lovely pub with fantastic food. The helpful holidays team were very helpful, and helped us sort this booking quickly and efficiently.”

    Mrs Smith, Halesowen, August 2018

    • “We highly recommend this cottage. It has been attractively furnished, and very clean. The owner has also added thoughtful touches to help make your stay very comfortable. The garden is lovely, and a pretty place to sit and have breakfast at the picnic table, as we did! You are situated on the edge of Devon, close to the Cornwall border - an ideal location to visit lovely places in both counties. A fabulous cottage in a beautiful village - with a lovely pub that does good food - we will be back!”

    Mr Lloyd, Maidstone, August 2018
