This property is lovely. It is a quiet and peaceful location, near enough to pubs and local sights but ideal if you want peace and quiet. The helpfulness of the owner was exemplary and everything was well thought out and provided. We cannot recommend this property enough.(Read more)
Mr James Dixon
Lovely warm welcome, comfortable cottage with a beautiful garden. Perfect place to visit family in Newton Abbot and Torquay. We visited Babbacombe and Hope Cove and Dartmouth too. Helpful Holidays thanks again for another lovely holiday.(Read more)
Preston Cottage was a lovely home away from home. It is situated in delightful quiet countryside yet central enough to access most areas of interest. The owners were always on hand to help or just to say hello to. We would definitely book again.(Read more)
We had a happy, relaxed stay ay Valley Lodge again. The accommodation is perfect for extended families or a group of friends and of course dog owners. We love the lodge and gardens, which is made extra special with the river running through the grounds and glimpses of the kingfisher. Well situated ...(Read more)
Fantastic house enjoyed by three generations of our family. We enjoyed all the facilities this lovely home had to offer. All the little extras, welcome hamper etc were very much appreciated. Looking forward to returning in the future.(Read more)

This house exceeded our expectations - the photos don't quite do it justice. It is warm, airy, light, full of lovely paintings and furniture, the terrace has an amazing view - there are large gardens to enjoy (on warmer days), the showers are excellent, the beds comfy, plenty of wardrobe and ...(Read more)

Shute Barn is an excellent holiday home and we had a delightful week staying there, in Lerryn, one of our favourite places. The organisation of the holiday with Helpful Holidays was easy and trouble free. There was a great 'welcome' pack on arrival - tea, coffee, biscuits and a bottle of wine - ...(Read more)
I had a very good week here with my teenage daughter. The property was very well equipped and in a lovely, peaceful location. The owners were very helpful and friendly. There was plenty to do in the area, with good pubs doing excellent food nearby. I would recommend this property.(Read more)
Lovely quiet situation, within a farm, just the very occasional farm vehicle and the sounds of sheep and cattle which do not impinge. Cottage restored to a high specification and very comfortable. Would have no qualms about booking again.(Read more)
We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was in excellent condition and very well equipped and the views were stunning . I found myself studying the shipping coming to and fro in Plymouth Sound all the time ! It was a bit of a mission to get to Fort Picklecombe, but worth it - you need to be a ...(Read more)
We've stayed in quite a few holiday cottages over the years and we loved the location of this one! It was a well equipped cottage just off the main road, set in its own private woods. It was perfect for us and our dogs. The cottage is ideally located within Exmoor with only a few minutes drive to ...(Read more)
We had a lovely week at Ca'n Joan The property met and exceeded our expectations. Set in a beautiful tranquil location, with plenty of indoor and outdoor space, fully furnished with everything we needed and being able to use the pool in April due to the warm weather was a bonus. Only minutes from ...(Read more)

Foxglove at Stancombe Manor provided the perfect base for a South Hams holiday. My son loved all the facilities especially the swimming pool, table tennis and snooker room and we even fed the horses in the next field. The grounds are beautifully kept and the whole place has a very relaxed family ...(Read more)
Mrs Denise Teasdale
Great week at Easter 2017. Fantastic walks straight from the cottage, no need to use the car. Very warm, comfortable and characterful. For those who like to swim - you can dive in from the rocks beyond the harbour wall, a stunning place to swim.(Read more)
