    “It doesn’t get much better than this!”

    Oh my goodness, where to begin. We booked to stay at the Little Silver Owl for our 10 year anniversary (and to get away from the madness that is 2020) and we couldn’t have picked a more perfect place. The hut itself is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need...and more! The quality of everything is insane, from the Eve mattress, to the comfiest pillows I’ve ever slept on (I really need to find out what brand they were) the Nespresso machine and the shower!!!

    Oh my goodness, where to begin. We booked to stay at the Little Silver Owl for our 10 year anniversary (and to get away from the madness that is 2020) and we couldn’t have picked a more perfect place. The hut itself is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need...and more! The quality of everything is insane, from the Eve mattress, to the comfiest pillows I’ve ever slept on (I really need to find out what brand they were) the Nespresso machine and the shower!!! We couldn’t understand how a little hut in the middle of Devon has better heat and water pressure than our flat in London. The views, I haven’t seen anything quite like it, even on a rainy November day they were beautiful. The highlight of our trip was certainly sitting in the hot tub, looking at the stars and hearing the owls hoot to each other, there’s nothing quite like it. Peter and Lisa are the most amazing hosts, even before we arrived we had arranged a little celebration package to be waiting for us. When we arrived Peter told us “we like to leave you alone and give you your space, but if you need anything please give us a text or call”, which is just what we wanted. Peter and Lisa are so welcoming and friendly and as we were leaving we stopped to chat to a woman who worked there (sorry we didn’t manage to catch he name) and she was also so lovely, friendly and wished us a safe journey home. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left it was honestly perfection, I couldn’t fault a single thing. Thank you so much for our incredible stay, we can’t recommend the Little Silver Owl enough and we can’t wait to return!
