    • “A beautiful and charming cottage in a quiet little village. Very well presented and equipped with everything we needed. There were pretty lights and ivy garlands put over the fireplace for our New Year stay which made the cottage look even more cosy. Owner Shelley, and the neighbours all so helpful and friendly. Perfectly working shower, excellent kitchen, cosy adjustable heating and a log fire. An evening in The Drew Arms - just a hop across the churchyard - is not to be missed, it’s the village hub and you will be made welcome and will get to know the whole village and their stories in a couple of visits. Walks to the moor and local beauty spots all on the doorstep, or you can hole up and totally relax. One other thing, whether you want to use it or not, the WiFi is excellent all over the house - the best I’ve encountered in a holiday cottage. Thank you Shelley for a perfect break.”

    Ms Green, ASHTEAD, December 2018

    • “Churchgate cottage was a most wonderful place to stay, you couldn’t fault it in any way. Shelley was just exceptional in making sure we had everything we needed and we cannot thank her enough.”

    Mrs Ashurst, Crowborough, September 2018

    • “What we had not expected was such a warm and sensitive owner living nearby”

    Mr Popham, Alresford, September 2018

    • “A beautiful little cottage ideally placed for access to Dartmoor and as a base for exploring the lovely county of Devon. The cottage has all of the utensils one may need for a self catering stay and the small welcome pack of fresh bread, tea, coffee, milk and butter is a nice touch. The cottage is centrally heated and also has a log burner for those who like a real fire. The cottage is in a tranquil location whilst being a short walk across the churchyard to the local amenities (pub, shop, restaurant) where the locals could not be more welcoming. Finally, the owner was very welcoming, without being intrusive, and knowledgable about the area. Games and puzzles in the house shows that the owner has tried to make this more of a home from home rather than just a holiday rental.”

    Mr Ford, Dagenham, August 2018

    • “The cottage was extremely comfortable and appreciated the warm welcome from the owner. The loaf of bread and butter left by the owner on our arrival was also very much appreciated. The cottage had all of the facilities possibly required. Couldn't have hoped for a better holiday home for the week.”

    Mr Saunders, London, July 2018

    • “Shelley greatest us and our two min schnauzers very warmly on our arrival. Having settled us in she left us to our own devices. A truly beautiful location for exploring Devon.”

    Mrs Allen, Bishop's Stortford, June 2018

    • “Lovely cottage. Well equipped, especially for dogs. Owner thoughtfully provided dog bowls, towels, throws etc. She was available if anything was needed but it wasn't. Very satisfied and would definitely return”

    Mrs Lindsay, Pulborough, May 2018

    • “We had such a great week in this little cottage. Although we had fantastic weather the cottage would have been a lovely place to hide in bad weather too. A perfect holiday and just the right cottage for us. Thank you so much Shelley (and George, the lumbering puppy).”

    Rev Williams, St. Austell, May 2018

    • “This was booked last minute for Easter weekend (Good Friday to Easter Monday April 2018) for us as a family with dog.(couple with daughter over 18) It was our first visit to Devon. From the moment we arrived at 2 Church Cottages in Drewsteignton we felt at home. The cottage is beautifully presented both in terms of cleanliness and décor but in the home comforts. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to stay in and cook a lovely meal. The long burner was a huge plus given we had a very wet weekend of walking...our Beagle particularly loved curling up in front of the fire after a days outing! The cottage is positioned just by The Holy Trinity Church (which we attended on Easter Sunday and were made very welcome by the Vicar , Harriet) and next to the local pub The Drew Arms. We had a fabulous meal on the Saturday evening.... we highly recommend the Steak and Ale Pie! Live entertainment was also on. The Cottage is in a great location to access some amazing walks and indeed a great bolt hole to travel to the coast. We had a great trip to Torquay. The local castle, Castle Drogo is well worth a visit. Only a 2 mile walk from the cottage. All in all we had the best weekend and will definitely be returning! We highly recommend to anyone who wants to get away from everything to a peaceful pretty chocolate box village location.”
