    • “The property and the owner were wonderful. The cottage was so wonderful it was a real home. The cottage had everything you needed in the kitchen and living room with many additional leaflets and information regarding the area. We were welcomed with a homemade applecake and lovely flowers. Truly an amazing experience and a super village and location.”

    Ms Doidge, Hythe, June 2018

    • “Very friendly owner, lovely area and well equipped cottage .”

    Mrs Fagerson, Kirriemuir, May 2018

    • “This was our second time at Gardeners Cottage and our stay was as enjoyable as our previous visit. The cottage is surrounded by a wonderful garden and has several outside areas, where you can sit and enjoy the garden. There is a lovely, large, bright first floor lounge, with very comfortable loungers, so you put your feet up, after a day of walking. South Zeal is a good location for easy access to the moor. The village has two good pubs and nice shop and it's an easy drive to Okehampton if your needs are greater.”

    Mrs Baker, LONDON, May 2018

    • “Gardeners Cottage was superb. Large, very well equipped and very comfortable. The garden was beautiful. The hosts were so kind and helpful. The cottage was in the most attractive location at South Zeal and we could walk out onto the moors. We had such a good time we have booked again for next year!”
