    • “Absolutely superb cottage, great location, fabulous garden which was totally enclosed (great if you have a dog) furnished lovely, beautiful log burner and just a couple of hundred yards from a super pub the Drewe arms and a great restaurant the Old Inn. Well stocked little post office in the village which is handy and just 5 minutes from the A30. One of the best cottages I’ve stayed in”

    Mr Williams, ALTON, October 2018

    • “This is a beautiful cottage and ideal for two families.The stair gates are excellent ,good for preventing dogs and toddlers from going upstairs.The garden is also very secure.The walk up to the village is quite steep,so not really possible with a pushchair.Fom the main road it is a narrow road to the cottage,but there are plenty passing places.The cottage is very well equipped ,the cutlery drawer is just below the hob.Lovely walks at fingle bridge and Drogo castle which ar e 5 mins drive away.You do not need to pay at Drogo castle to go far a walk,It’s £2 to park for 2 hours ,walk back out of the car park entrance and access to the walk is about100yds on the used to be able to pay for the gardens only, but now the charge is £12 for the house and gardens.You can take a dog into the gardens if kept on a lead.Lots of places to visit with children within a 40 min drive .”

    Mrs Hutchinson, Broadway, August 2018

    • “Yet another brilliant HH cottage in a friendly, happy, little village. The walled garden was totally secure for our Saluki, who had room to run and run. Local pubs are welcoming and the walks from the cottage are numerous and mostly well marked, Thank you for a relaxing peaceful week away.”

    Mrs Dalton, Tonbridge, August 2018

    • “Michaelmas Cottage was a wonderful place to stay. The owners had thought of everything that you might need for a great holiday including lots of gadgets in the kitchen; cling film and tin foil; lots of dvds, cds and board games; a lead to connect my laptop to the tv; and a pair of binoculars to borrow! It was a beautiful cottage in a lovely location.”

    Deacon, Stroud, July 2018

    • “The cottage was beautiful. Very clean and nice decor throughout. Extremely well equiped kitchen, fabulous enclosed walled garden, which was great for our two dogs. Only a couple of things could have improved our stay, a garden table umbrella to shade from the sun, which we were lucky to have all week, more bathroom towels as there were not enough for 6 adults.The village shop is very good, as is the local pub and you can walk down to Fingle Bridge in 30min through the woods for a meal. We did all enjoy our stay very much, Dartmoor is a special place . Fiona and Jim Avey”

    Mr Avry, Rickmansworth, June 2018

    • “Amazing cottage. Highly recommend both the accommodation and the services of helpful holidays”

    Mr Copleston, Henfield, April 2018

    • “This is not a criticism but the pictures on the website undersold the cottage. Accommodation was larger than than we expected and standard of the cottage was one of the best we have stayed in. The cottage was the perfect lay out for two families spend a very pleasant week in Devon Thank You”

    Mr White, BIRCHINGTON, April 2018

    • “Although the Easter weather was a little disappointing Drewsteignton is a lovely little village surrounded by beautiful countryside. The cottage was everything we expected and more. It is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for a peaceful relaxing break. The moment we opened the door we felt at home. The hot cross buns and Creme eggs were a nice touch too. From the initial booking right through to the end of the holiday, Helpful Holidays and the host were exceptional.”

    Mr Sharp, Aylesbury, March 2018
