A well equipped holiday home in a beautiful peaceful part of Devon.. The owner Jo was so helpful with many tips and fantastic local knowledge, nothing was too much trouble.

We had a lovely week in the Lakeside Cottage.. The owners are friendly and very helpfull. We missed a table and some chairs in the little garden (there is only outside sitting oppertunity at the front and that isn't very private0. We recommand this cottage highly.

The holiday home was absolutely PERFECT.. The owners, Jo and David, could not have been more kind and helpful. We were VERY pleased with our location, comfort, cleanliness and overall cottage. The fishing lake provided some excellent sport and was well situated a very short distance away from the cottage in a small vale so gave peace and quiet and was protected from any winds - like a piece of glass! It was very restful and just what is needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy life. The only concern (if it is a concern) is the wi-fi is not very good, due to the thickness of the walls I understand,. However, sometimes this can be more beneficial than disturbing. It certainly did not distract from our holiday! Would we recommend it? Already have and will keep on doing so! Thank you Jo and David for a holiday home which will take some beating regarding standards of comfort and quality

Wonderfully furnished throughout, usually with self catering holidays you have to remember everything but there wasn't a single thing we needed, even down to dishwasher tablets, foil, tea and coffee, tea towels, oven gloves etc every little thing had been thought of.. It was just perfect for our holiday to Devon, peace and quiet with the beautiful views of the countryside, fishing on the farm if you wanted it, Horses to pet and plenty of fresh air! Jo and David were very friendly we can not recommend this cottage highly enough. We would love to go back.

The property is amazing and in a fantastic location. The owners could not have been more welcoming and we had an amazing time. The kids loved visiting the horses and were allowed to feed them and I would definitely recommend this break to any of my friends or family.

We loved our time at Lakeside. Our hosts were welcoming and took real care of us. The barn conversion is done beautifully and it was hard to tear ourselves away from the stunning views of the countryside and the peace and tranquillity of the setting. An absolute gem!

Peaceful quiet with beautiful countryside all around. The fishing lake was superb. It was a fantastic barn conversion - overall probably the best holiday accommodation we have ever stopped in. The location makes it ideal to travel North or South Devon.
Mrs West

The cottage was delightful with modern decor and everything was immaculate. We had no hesitation in using items out of the cupboards without having to wash them first and the sheets and towels were snowy white. We had full control of the heating, such an important feature when the weather is so changeable . The views are wonderful and a delight to wake up to. Owners are on hand if needed and they are really nice and welcoming.
Mr Watkins

An exceptionally well finished and clean cottage in a great location. Very friendly owners who have put a lot of effort into making the cottage somewhere comfortable to stay. We stayed in late October and the electric radiators kept the place nice and warm.

A group of four spent a week at this location. From the moment we arrived the owners were friendly and very helpful. The property was spotless and nicely decorated with everything you need for a stay. The beds are amazing to sleep in. The location is perfect to explore Devon as it's fairly central so easy to branch off to different places. The fishing lake is one of the best places we have ever fished. We literally caught one after another and all were good sizes. We will definitely be staying again and can not recommend this highly enough.

I cannot speak highly enough of the standard of amenities in this cottage. The beds were especially comfortable and the bed linen of a very high quality. We also enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location and appreciated the welcome we received from the owners.

The property was very clean, and gave us a very good and warm welcome. We hope to come back once more to explore more of the region.
Mrs Burrow

This was the best accommodation we have ever had. Definitely stay there again. The owners were particularly helpful and very friendly. In Horton, Sunday carvery at The Dovecote was the best we've ever had. The White Hunt Hotel was also very good for evening meals. The miniature pony centre Dartmoor is brilliant for small children.
