    • “Batavia was nothing short of perfect for what we were looking for from our break in Dartmoor. Cosy, warm, clean, beautiful views and good location. The beds were so comfortable and the water nice and hot, plenty of dog walks nearby, lots of places to visit especially loved Tavistock with its craft market and bustling high street. Owners were friendly, attentive and left some lovely touches for our arrival. Would love to return.”

    Mrs Warrington, Bury, October 2018

    • “We were lucky to have really good weather but in wet weather access to a drying room - somewhere to put muddy boots and wet coats would be helpful. Lovely décor and extra touches at this cottage eg. a dim light comes on at night when going in the bathroom. Hand soap provided. Scones, jam and cream. Bottle of wine. Felt welcomed. Lovely lamps comfy sofas. Good quality bedding and towels. This makes the holiday so nice. Quiet and lovely location. Very well kept property.”

    Mr Creaghan, Sheffield, September 2018

    • “The cottage is in a beautiful and secluded valley, with direct access to the Dartmoor National Park. The cottage is a converted barn, which is very tastefully furnished and newly redecorated with a wonderful view over Dartmoor. It is spotlessly clean, very well equipped, the beds are comfortable and the water pressure for the showers is excellent. Kevin and Katie provide a warm welcome, with home made scones, jam and cream, wine and flowers. Lots of information is available about local walking, including maps and guide books. The location is perfect for walking on Dartmoor, the north and south coasts of Devon are accessible as well as National Trust properties and RHS gardens. We had a wonderful stay here and highly recommend it.”

    Mrs K, London, July 2018

    • “The property was extremely clean and well presented. However the parking was slightly difficult as there was not much room to manoeuvre a large car. Unfortunately we experienced lots of noise from workmen just outside our windows. These started early which woke us up. There was also lots of cars and vans arriving early just outside our bedroom window which was not pleasant. The property itself was lovely and there was some special treats left for our enjoyment which was a nice touch.”

    Mrs Stebbings, Woodbridge, July 2018

    • “You couldn't wish for a better welcome when you come to Wastor farm. Katie and Kevin are so kind and helpful. Batavia has been decorated and it looks fabulous. There have been some additions,better lightings one of them but I particularly like the sensor lights in the toilet/ bathroom,most helpful. An A* accommodation back next year”

    Mrs Gay, ALTON, June 2018

    • “Great cottage, welcoming owners. Beautiful location and everything went smoothly. We have used helpful holidays for a number of years and they have always proved to be a reliable booking Company.”

    Mrs Dennis, SPALDING, April 2018

    • “We had a lovely time, despite the weather! Walks from the doorstep onto the moor and Lydford Gorge (NT) were a bonus. Great location midway between two country towns of Tavistock and Okehampton and the barn was beautifully furnished and decorated, with many treats awaiting our arrival. Parking was a little difficult as our old Volvo has a dreadful turning circle but fine for ordinary cars! Recommend highly.”

    Mrs Zollman, Witney, March 2018

    • “I don't think the pictures reflex this lovely holiday barn. It was bright, warm, clean and welcoming. Lydford is a delightful village with the stunning Lydford Gorge on the doorstep. The cottage had everything we wanted and was extremely warm and cosy after a day's walking. The garden is small but fully enclosed and perfect for us with two small dogs. Possibly a larger dog may jump over the wall but assuming they are well behaved should be fine with supervision. The farm is clean and very tidy with a walk from the door step. We would highly recommend this lovely barn.”

    Mrs Ward, Saffron Walden, March 2018

    • “Really enjoyed our week at the well equipped cottage. Went walking in the snow on Dartmoor. Wish to return soon.”

    Mrs Warne, HELSTON, March 2018
