    • “Bracondale Cottage is a lovely well-equipped home in a charming friendly village where we spent 3 wonderful days exploring Exeter, Torquay, part of the moor and cooking some amazing meals.......would love to have stayed longer and was quite sorry to leave. Two little suggestions for improvement would be a sponge for washing-up and more robust dustbin liners..”

    Ms Tee, Southend-on-Sea, December 2018

    • “Cosy house, warmed quickly with wood burner, quiet and very comfortable beds. Information folder interesting and useful.”

    Mrs Whapshott, Camberley, December 2018

    • “The cottage itself exceeded our expectations and was very well presented.”

    Mrs Lambourne, Redruth, July 2018

    • “Bracondale is a fantastic holiday cottage. We've never stayed anywhere so well equipped before. All the little "extra" things that you take with you "just in case" on a self-catering holiday had already been thought of (washing up liquid, handwash, tea-towels, tea, sugar, coffee, hairdryer and so much more). The woodburner takes a bit of practice to get right but we managed it in the end! Beds are so comfy we managed a few lovely lie ins. The surrounding area is beautiful and it doesn't take long to get right out on the Moors and feel immersed in nature. Will definitely visit again.”

    Mrs Musgreaves, Marlow, March 2018

    • “Bracondale is a lovely cottage in the centre of South Zeal. It is spotlessly clean and very well laid out. It's a great place to stay if you enjoy walking. There are numerous pubs within walking distance and a well stocked village shop, so even if you get snowed in you won't go hungry.”

    Mrs Williams, CAERPHILLY, March 2018
