    • “Beautiful quiet location in the depths of Dartmoor National Park. We had a lovely holiday.”

    Mr Johnson, London, December 2018

    • “It was a peaceful location with a beautiful kitchen/living area that made spending time with my sisters a real joy. The place is comfortable and beautiful and everything feels high quality. Even with gales and rain outside all weekend, we were cosy and having a nice time in doors!”

    Ms Merrington, Totnes, December 2018

    • “Such a lovely cottage in a beautiful, peaceful part of dartmoor. It is well equipped, has a lovely relaxing vibe, and is in a gorgeous little valley with beautiful walks from the door. We've been before and will certainly come back again”

    Mr Silverman, Twickenham, October 2018

    • “The cottage was very well equipped, stylish and comfortable. There were some welcome goodies on arrival which is always a nice touch. The location was perfect - tucked down a little moorland lane in our favourite area and we were able to walk up the lane and on straight on to the moor. Very pretty and spacious garden which was private but as there were neighbours we didn't feel isolated.”

    Miss Chandler, Chelmsford, June 2018

    • “We have stayed at Hayloft a number of times and always have a fantastic holiday based there. It's a lovely, peaceful spot in the heart of Dartmoor, with lots of places to visit easily accessible. We will definitely return again.”

    Mrs Roberts, SALE, May 2018

    • “The cottage was great, just as we expected, very clean and with all the facilities we needed, we even managed to host an extended family meal for 9! Lovely to be able to walk from the cottage and leave the car behind, a walk to Widecombe for coffee one day then another walk to the Warren House Inn for lunch another. Would stay there again, thanks.”

    Mr Rochford, STROUD, March 2018
