    • “We arrived at Upper Red Down through the lanes using the directions provided by Nigel and were amazed at the location and space around the converted barns. Our stay in Upper Red Down was first class. The accommodation offers two good bedrooms (one double and one with twin beds) and the main bedroom has a good size ensuite/shower with sink and toilet. The family bathroom has a bath, sink and toilet but no shower attachment. The bedding and towels are luxurious and top quality and the lounge and open plan kitchen/dining area is well equipped to include a dishwasher and washing machine. The patio is accessed via the French doors which offers views across the Devon Countryside. The cows in the field at the bottom of the garden were so lovely to see each day and the owners dogs, Hector and Lottie also popped in to see us! There are plenty of places to visit locally, but be prepared for a short drive out, although the lanes are pretty manageable. There are local walks and maps and we found the information package very helpful. Helen had made a rather delicious sponge cake for our arrival and that was a lovely surprise! We highly recommend Upper Red Down, which is dog friendly and ideal for couples who want a quiet and relaxing break. Thank you Helen and Nigel for your care and attention during our stay.”

    • “This was an absolute gem of a cottage. My sister and I both needed a relaxing wind down holiday with our two little Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and this holiday exceeded all our expectations. We received a very warm welcome on our day of arrival. The cottage was comfortable, warm and very relaxing with everything you could hope for in your own home, let alone a holiday cottage. The fresh baked scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam were a lovely welcome gift and the bottle of excellent wine completed a lovely evening meal. The views from the cottage were lovely and the dogs enjoyed the freedom of the garden area, so all in all an extremely enjoyable holiday and one we hope to repeat at a later date. We understand this is a new venture for the owners and it is one that absolutely deserves to succeed.”

    • “The cottage is extremely well equipped with everything needed for a relaxing holiday. Would recommend this place to everyone. Owners most helpful and we hope to return soon.”

    • “Lovely clean cottage and very well equipped; had a great time. Thanks for the welcome pack - the home made cake and bread were delicious!”

    • “Perfect cottage and holiday as a result. Absolutely delighted we chose to stay at Upper Red Down. Helen and Nigel were most friendly and helpful and were there if we needed them but otherwise, we could enjoy the freedom and peace of the cottage as we wished. Wonderfully comfortable and equipped to such a high standard with everything we could have possibly wanted. So much care and thought has gone into making it the ideal place to stay. Wonderful views, quiet walks in the surrounding countryside and the most delicious cake on arrival - what more could you ask for. We will certainly be returning and would most definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking to enjoy the area, as it provided a perfect base for touring with excellent pubs, cafes and market towns in the vicinity.”

    • “The owners wife asked us to make sure the outside lights were turned off. We have never experienced such hostility when having paid over £1000 a week. We expect we are able to turn whatever lights we want on and off as we like.”

    Mr Mendis, London, August 2018

    • “Excellent location: isolated farm, peaceful and quite. Beautiful setting! Pub across the fields about a mile walk. Loved the view from the house. Loved the house: had EVERYTHING!! Literally could not have enough things to make one comfortable. We wanted to move in! BUT the lower score is simply because of the high discomfort during sleeping: the rooms have low ceiling, making them really hot. The windows are low, without black out curtains- so we woke up at 4am with bright light and heat on us. Also the second bedroom is not fit for adults- bed too short (husband had to squeeze on floor- it was an comfortable 5 nights) and room really tight squeeze (doors bashing into bed, squeeze next to mirror, etc.). - the 2nd room would work for kids though. We would go back - but in the winter only.... and just the two of us instead of 4 adults. Btw Really really nice hosts! Such a fantastic pair! *****OWNER RESPONSE***** Thank you for your kind comments. I would like to point out that the bedrooms are not as you describe them. The ceilings are not low, they are 7’ 10” and although they decrease slightly to the eaves they are still 6’ 6” at the edge of the bed; the single beds are all standard singles, being 3’ by 6’ 4”, and all skylights have Velux blackout blinds, which is clearly shown in the welcome pack and all the windows have fabric roman blinds with liners that fully cover the windows; and, the bedroom doors all clear the beds with plenty of room to spare, particularly given the fact that this is a cottage and the bedrooms are not enormous. We are sorry that you had some uncomfortable nights but if you had spoken to us we would have happily explained about how to keep the room dark in these summer months and given the exceptionally hot weather we would have happily supplied you with a fan to help try and keep cool.”
