I have a wish list Comfy bed - Yes it is very important for me Well equipped- certainly is nothing lacking Good walks for our pooch - lovely walks direct from the house and within easy reach of both moors and beaches Garden- very pretty and interesting on different levels with different seating areas Cosy - Yes the wood burner made the place so warm and cosy in the evening WiFi - Yes I cannot seem to function without my iPad and super fast too.. All of the above added up to a great holiday.

Hope Cottage has a beautiful setting with lovely garden and amazing views.. We immediately felt at home. Everything one could need was provided , plus those little touches which made it feel like home. Hope cottage is well placed for visiting both coasts, Dartmoor and Exmoor.

The cottage was delightful, although rather spoilt by a plague of hornets.. Even when all doors and windows were closed, they still came in, and they were buzzing round the garden all the time.. But I can't blame Sykes Holidays or the owners of the cottage for that! The cottage would benefit from a proper chest of drawers in the main bedroom, and somewhere to plug in a hairdryer near a mirror. The lighting was poor. The kitchen, bathroom and drawing room were really nice and the garden could be lovely if the trees were cut back a bit. At the moment (September) it got very little sunshine. *** Owners response - We have purchased a chest of drawers for the main bedroom. The neighbour has removed the hornet nest from their property. Different parts of the garden get beautiful sunshine at different parts of the day There are ambient lights and reading lights in every room. The main bedroom is triple aspect and the sitting room double aspect so lots of natural light for an old cottage.

Great location.. Wonderful owners, very considerate. Parking a little difficult, but easy to overcome. Will likely book again in the future.

We loved our week at this cottage, it is a real gem, deep in the Devon countryside, where the lanes are full of ferns and wildflowers, birdsong fills the air, and oak woods with bluebells invited us in. It is off of the main tourist trail, a peaceful retreat where we really relaxed and had great sleep, yet also near to the coast, such as my favourite Braunton Burrows and Saunton Sands, as well as to Dartmoor and Exmoor. But most of the time we chose to stay in the immediate area as there are some lovely walks to do directly from the cottage. The cottage itself is very loved and has been decorated in a very sensitive and tasteful way, it is a harmonious space. The master bedroom is really large and communal areas are also great sizes, the other two bedrooms are also very comfortable. We found the heating and hot water system to be very effective. There are all mod cons, such as a washing machine and tumble dryer, and those who love cooking will appreciate the kitchen facilities. When my sister visited with her 2 yr old we noticed that all the additional equipment necessary for young children, such as stair gates, is in place. The garden is another delightful space that we enjoyed a lot, it has lots of interesting and attractive plants, and again, attention to detail has clearly been given. We loved Hope Cottage and this area of Devon and look forward to returning there again as it ticks all the boxes for us, and more.

Very welcoming cosy cottage with pretty thatch. Great sized rooms for four sharing the space. Plenty of good quality 'kitchenalia' - plates, bowls, gadgets. Very pretty terraced garden with several seating options. Local walks with views & wooded paths - would be excellent spot to walk a dog. Situation was well placed for access to local towns & great rhs garden but found journeys to coast were longer than expected so best to plan for a full day out & about.
