    • “Beautifully presented cottage, ideal for two. Bedroom and bathroom exceptional. Very comfy bed with a good mattress and lovely linen. Good pub down the road, the Castle Inn. Friendly staff and a varied menu and quick service. Only one downside was the traffic noise but didn't spoil the holiday!”

    Mrs Evans, Chulmleigh, January 2019

    • “This is a fantastic little cottage for just two people. Andy and Clare have obviously put a lot of thought in to the requirements for a holiday cottage and I can only say that there was everything in there that was required for a comfortable and relaxed vacation. Easy communication with Andy and he was always very quick to respond to any of our text messages or phone calls. I would highly recommend this lovely Devon hideaway.”

    Mr Lee, Ibstock, December 2018

    • “Really loved the cottage, great place for exploring the local area and it's a great cosy place to stay in too. It would only have been even better if there was maybe a small welcome package of uht milk or something for our arrival.”

    Mr Watts, Frome, November 2018

    • “All to a very high standard, everything we could want was there - very well equipped. Cosy and warm, very welcoming. Bedroom and bathroom stunning! Owners very friendly.”

    Mrs Mangan, July 2018

    • “Perfect cottage the road is busy but presumably because it is peak holiday season there are lots of cars going to Lydford Gorge/farmers going about their business.”

    Mrs Pearham, Ruislip, July 2018

    • “Excellent service provided by owner. A real gem of a property. Small but all you need and in a perfect location with nearby pub and walks”

    Ms Jones, Porth, June 2018

    • “The cottage was clean and what we expected,shame was we had to leave after 3days due to ill health.would recommend for a couple to stay there .Very well equipped everything you needed .”

    Mrs Doherty, Clacton-on-Sea, June 2018

    • “A quiet peacefull holiday”

    Mr Murray, Poole, May 2018

    • “Perfectly located, well equipped and comfortable for two people and a dog. It was nice to enjoy a quality mattress on the bed and sharp knives/ knife sharpener in the kitchen. Also reasonable quality pots and pans. Only too often such things are bypassed in the interest of economy, but it makes the difference between an average rental and a memorable one. Top marks to Andrew!”

    Miss Murdoch, BRISTOL, May 2018

    • “Top marks to the Sykes website that made it simple to choose and book our holiday, and top marks, too, to the cottage and its location. A pleasure from start to finish.”

    Mr Evans, Aldershot, April 2018

    • “Another very pleasant getaway booked through helpful holidays, all the descriptions of this delightful little cottage was very accurate. An ideal location with many lovely walks onto Dartmoor with some great pubs also close by. The owners have worked very hard at trying to accommodate all creature comforts to ensure a very relaxing and comfortable stay. If only you could perfect the weather also, thanks once again!”

    Mr Plank, CHRISTCHURCH, April 2018
