Reviews

    • “Excellent holiday rental”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Beautiful ‘home from home’ cottage. Comfortable with modern touches. Chris and Sandra were excellent throughout and made us feel very welcome. Great base as you can visit either coastline and have access to the National Park right on your doorstep. 5 minute drive to local amenities which was convenient. We had a super holiday and look forward to visiting again soon!”

    • “Just perfect!”

    • “A perfect week, spent in this delightful cottage. Fully equipped, delightfully appointed throughout, comfortable beds and a beautiful garden and decking to sit out on. Greeted on arrival by the owners and shown around. Milk and wine in the fridge along with clotted cream, jam and homemade scones also awaited us which was a lovely touch, add to this the fresh flowers, the welcome could not have been warmer. We were blessed with good weather, but it would have been no hardship to have stayed “at home” in the cottage, there were books games and plenty of DVD’s if we’d been so inclined. We visited Dartmoor, North Devon, from Bude up to Appledore, also down to South Devon. This cottage was a wonderful place to stay, highly recommend. Thank you Chris and Sandra.”

    • “We have just spent a thoroughly enjoyable, comfortable & relaxing stay at 'Lily's Pad'. A spotlessly clean, well equipped, & furnished cottage with some lovely homely touches. Not forgetting the amazing views of the surrounding countryside, together with the generous cream tea, flowers & wine on arrival & warm friendly owners, all contributed to a lovely week for us. Highly recommended.”

    Mr Boys, Chichester, October 2018

    • “Ideal base for two couples sharing or those with older children. Extremely clean and well equipped with comfortable beds. Owners very helpful and discreet and kindly left us a cream tea and bottle of wine. Lovely views, not far from town for supplies. Would definitely book again for this area.”

    Mr Waters, HAYWARDS HEATH, September 2018

    • “Its a wonderful place to stay, very relaxing, great for exploring the area for both coasts and countryside. Great access for Dartmoor. Sandra and Chris were wonderful hosts, there if you needed them, but also gave you your privacy. Loved the Cream Tea and Wine. The first place to do this, given we have stayed in 2 separate cottages with yourselves before, a lovely touch and oh do i miss my cream tea's. But then I am biased as we come from the Okehampton area back visiting relatives and a 90th Birthday Party. We now live at the very top of Scotland, 754 miles. On a personal note having arrived and met Sandra we suddenly realised that we went School together in Chagford and Okehampton so had a great time catching up. I know this is not relevant but lovely for me. Having said all that I will definitely be booking this cottage again as it has been the best by far for location and convenience.”

    Mrs Parker, LAIRG, September 2018

    • “Beautifully kept cottage in a lovely location. Lots of activities for families in Devon.”

    Mrs Melia, Liverpool, August 2018

    • “Nestled in rolling Devon countryside just behind the owners’s home , this lovely accomodation is clean and well equipped and an excellent location for visiting the Devon coast and interior. Nearby Okehampton is equipped with supermarkets and leisure activities and the beautiful moors can be walked or climbed . Its very cosy with a fab wood burner and has three lovely patio areas to sit and access to the owners’s large garden space adjacent to the home which is fab for families . The owners are very welcoming and provided a lovely Devon tea which was refreshing after a long drive . We found access to the south coast easier via the A30 but the North is more twisty with “Devonshire miles “ ! ☺️ A really enjoyable stay”

    Mrs Riotto, Peterborough, August 2018

    • “lilys pad was superb, clean, has every thing we needed, the views from the location were amazing the hosts were helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome.”

    Mr Nicholson, Prenton, July 2018

    • “A super place, very well equipped, excellent large garden and facilities for eating/relaxing out of doors. Highly recommended. Very friendly and helpful owners.”

    Mr Fulker, Rowland's Castle, June 2018

    • “From the moment we arrived we felt at home. Welcomed personally by the owners who gave us information we needed about the property, re. controls where to find things etc. We also enjoyed freshly made scones and clotted cream along with wine that was kindly left for us. Chris and Sandra unobtrusive but available should we need anything. The setting is beautiful with gorgeous gardens, a lovely sunny decking to sit and enjoy an evening drink with amazing views. A beautiful lounge, well equipped kitchen and lovely comfortable beds. All in all a perfect place to stay in central Devon on the edge of Dartmoor.”

    Mrs Marshman, ASHBOURNE, May 2018

    • “The accommodation was very good and spotlessly clean. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. Our only criticism is that it was if anything over furnished with ornaments. This meant there was little room to put things down. The listing does not emphasise the sheer size of the principle rooms or the large amount of fenced outside area available. The situation in rural Oakhampton is ideal for exploring north Dartmoor which has the high tors. We managed to scale Yes Tor etc. The route is easy and safe. We also visited mid Dartmoor and the north Cornish cast at Widemouth Bay. There is spectacular coastal walking and surfing if you like such things. A successful short break.”

    Mr Smith, Surbiton, May 2018
