    • “Superb location, lovely quirky cottage. Owners were friendly and approachable and left us a lovely surprise for our arrival. We'll definitely be booking again!”

    Mrs Bird, Southminster, October 2018

    • “Everything that we had read about the cottage was spot on and more as the owners had left home made scones and clotted cream along with milk and wine for us as a welcome pack. However it was the location and surroundings that were truly were breath taking. Our visit here was memorable for so many good reasons not least that fantastic power shower in the main bedroom and the excellent wifi reception which was helpful when planning our daily adventures around Devon and Cornwall! jmc”

    Mr Mccormack, BURY, June 2018

    • “The location is excellent with walks on Dartmoor and in Lydford Gorge on the doorstep. Ordnance survey map and good walk guides provided by the owners were very useful. Welcome pack was very generous and much appreciated. Owners on site were friendly and approachable. Ceylon is a lovely holiday let where everything is of the highest quality and a great deal of thought has been given to making the holidaymaker as comfortable as possible.”

    Mr Perkins, PONTYPOOL, May 2018
