    • “Lovely property. The boiler had broken and we did not have enough heat. Once the owners were fully aware of the situation,they provided us with plug in heaters,which helped.”

    Mr Nicholls, St. Agnes, September 2018

    • “Property as described and surpassed expectations. Communication good and questions raised were answered in a timely manner. Really enjoyed our holiday and will use your site again for future bookings. Many thanks.”

    • “We've stayed at many holiday cottages, but the Old Parlour is the first time we've honestly been able to say you can get lost in its garden - a wonderful discovery!”

    Mr Bennett, Newbury, July 2018

    • “The day we arrived 15th Sept, the owners mother came to show us round, and said that the previous tenants had been experiencing problems during the holiday with the hot water and heating going off .We had No Heating at all during the holiday!!! and the hot water was constantly tripping off , we had to go outside to the far end of the building into a barn to try and get the gas boiler to restart !! this was not very nice when in the middle of a shower !! also when it went off at night we had to get a torch to find our way to try and restart it ,we went to inform the owners mother and she did eventually get someone out , i had to show him where the boiler was etc , they didnt repair during our holiday ! We managed to find a very small electric fire and an extension lead so we could have a small amount of heat at least . This totally spoilt our holiday , i am 74 and my wife is 72 , i feel the cold badly due to medication following a heart operation some years ago ,”

    Mr Sutton, Rugby, September 2018

Regional Information

SAMPFORD COURTENAY Okehampton 2.5 miles. Midway between Sampford Courtenay, a sleepy but picturesque Devon village, and Okehampton, a thriving community known as ‘the gateway to the moor’. The whole area is a country lover’s dream. The high tors of northern Dartmoor dominate the scenery and provide a splendid backdrop to Okehampton nestling in a valley where tumbling moorland rivers join before heading to the sea. For miles around, the area is famous for its country pubs that between them provide welcome rest after a day exploring the paths, cycle ways and stunning countryside. On a clear day the view from the top of High Willhays (the highest point south of the Pennines) will take your breath away. Country pursuits and crafts are a way of life and a trip to the Dartmoor Visitor Centre and country museum in Okehampton are musts. Look also at the pretty moorland villages of Chagford, Belstone and Sticklepath to savour a way of life that’s becoming increasingly rare.
