    • “Our stay at Trilby's was amazing! Our four nights felt like a full week in terms of the benefit we felt. Aubrey and Judi are the loveliest hosts we've met on Dartmoor. There was a beautiful hamper of useful goodies waiting and they were so helpful when our car wouldn't start on our penultimate day, it was really touching. Their lovely cottage is perfectly located for a truly peaceful stay and lots of long walks on the moor. We are definitely returning (and in all honesty didn't really want to leave...). Thank you both so much :)”

    Ms Dhillon, London, November 2018

    • “We came to visit Trilbys cottage beforehand, so we knew about the lovely space and its high standard and qualities. We very much enjoyed the silence and stillness around the house; the beautiful garden; the richness of fine walks onto any direction through quiet lanes, and into the fields. Easy walking distance to Chagford (appr. 25 min) made our stay perfect - being close to this dynamic Stannary Town, but also in a nice remote distance not to be constantly seduced to drink coffees or teas in the many tearooms and pubs around. Some people might see it a problem that the cottage hasn't got regular wifi and poor mobile signal. We thought it a good opportunity to mainly connect to nature - and, now and then, allow us to chat with the very friendly owners, Judy and Aubrey. For us, regaular visitors to the area for over 20-odd yrs, it has been a very good 2 weeks stay. Thank you.”

    • “We have used helpful holidays approximately 12 times and we have never been disappointed. Trilbys was superb in every way.”

    Mr Mayo, Weymouth, September 2018

    • “The owners are really nice people and made every effort to welcome us. The accommodation is very nice and well maintained. Its a bit off the beaten track but is secure and secluded. if you are an avid TV buff, I suggest you only visit when the weather is good. ****Owner response**** Thank you very much for your feedback, we're delighted to hear you liked the cottage and had a good holiday. We're sorry you had trouble with the television, it seems some rain had got into the aerial box which caused problems. We would like to reassure future guests that this has been fully resolved and the television is fully functional! We look forward to seeing you again soon.”

    Mr Plumbridge, Milton Keynes, September 2018
