Self-Catering Reviews

Mrs Ballantyne
August 2020
A lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the country.. Plymtree is sufficiently off the beaten track to be peaceful but is a convient starting point for lots of trips. The accommodation is spacious and the hosts extremely welcoming. The garden is idyllic, overlooking green fields and filled with birdsong.
Mrs Ballantyne, August 2020

Beautiful cottage, extremely good size rooms and excellent garden and patio shared with owners..
Mr Oates, July 2020

We had heard it was an excellent holiday home and it really was.. We were welcomed. Everything was spotless and we couldn't have wished for more. My husband is disabled and he was able to get around easily. An extra chair was provided in the shower space for him. He felt safe and secure in there too. Birdsong, peace and a lovely view were an added bonus. Come prepared for country lanes!

We had a wonderful week at Pipistrelle.. So peaceful and calm, clean and tidy. The shower is excellent. The only drawback for me was the bed was rather soft.. I know that many people like a soft mattress so it is a case of personal preference....

The owners were very friendly during my stay.. The property was very clean and well fitted out with everything I needed for my stay.
Mr Gilbert, October 2019

Pipistrelle Lodge is beautiful and we cannot wait to return there.. It is without doubt the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in; a spacious bungalow it offers comforts that far outweigh other holiday lets such as comfortable seating, heavy curtains, and a Hypnos bed. From the sitting room window extensive views of the Devonshire countryside will take your breath away. Far from the madding crowds Pipistrelle is a place for rest and quietude where mind, body and soul is recharged and refreshed.
Mr Newham, October 2019
September 2019
Lovely location that was not too far from any given place.. Very clean and comfortable. Lovely owners who were very welcoming but not overbearing. Fantastic views with access to garden and patio with no restrictions. Off road parking in front of location. Already paid deposit to visit again next year. 10/10 from us on this one.
Mr Taplin, September 2019
August 2019
This is the nicest lodge we have ever stayed in.. It was spotless and we wanted for nothing even the wifi was great. The owners Marilyn and Tony were fantastic, giving us local information, places we might like to visit and providing us with a welcome pack which exceeded our expectations. Nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel very welcome. We will definately be returning.Thankyou

Property advised WiFi, however connection was a bit hit and miss..
Mrs Jelenski
June 2019
Beautifully clean, comfortable and well kept cottage.. Owners cottage is attached but completely separate, not intrusive at all. Shared patio and full use of the garden. Lovely views from the lounge window and bird feeders to watch many varieties of birds that come to eat the seeds and nuts. Very helpful and ready to answer any questions if needed. Lovely quiet village with small shop and pub serving delicious evening meals. Lots of things to see and do in the area as well as walks straight from the door. Highly recommend this cottage.

Building work noice Interrupted our peace for two days.. Buildet on the sight making noice from 10am to 7.00pm. This was not Expected and was not told to us earlier otherwise we would have not postponed our holiday hrnce it would be appropriate to refund our money for those two noisy days. We sent you an text 4 days ago and No body have yey bothered to contact us listening to our complaint. Disappointing.n
Ms Davies

This cottage was immaculate, clean, comfortable and the owners were very nice.. We love the bird feeders outside the window and the views. The community shop five minutes walk away was an added bonus, basic items and much more. The Blacksmith Arms is only open in the evenings weekdays Saturday midday and evening and Sunday lunch. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

This cottage was immaculate with lovely views. Very quiet and peaceful. Local community shop was a surprise, well stocked with basics and more. The Blacksmiths Arms is only open in the evenings Tues to Fri, open weekends, basic food but well cooked.
Mr Tallet
January 2019
We loved the accommodation, which was spacious, comfortable, warm, very quiet and well-equipped.. It was good to have 2 TVs, which allowed us to watch different programmes at the same time. The owners are very pleasant and kindly provided a number of food and drink items. There was a nice view across the fields. We saw lots of different birds and it was amusing to see squirrels trying to reach the bird feeders. We did a lot of walking, some of it on way-marked field paths but much of it on very quiet lanes. We ate twice at the village pub, which was very good, and once at The Merry Harriers at Westcott, which was excellent; this was an easy 2½ mile walk along the quiet lane. We visited Killerton Park and Gardens (National Trust) and did a pleasant 4 mile walk. The weather was dry the whole time, which was good for January.
Mrs Briggs

The Owners could not have been friendlier or more helpful and dealt with any problems extremely well.. The cottage is superb and set within a delightful village.
Mr Newton
October 2018
Probably the best Sykes cottage we have been in.. Lovely views, birds etc. Without doubt the best.
Mr Reynolds
October 2018
The lodge was very spacious, warm, comfortable with beautiful views of the local countryside.. The owners were friendly and very helpful and made us very welcome. The Village of Plymtree was attractive with a lovely old church. The only problem was the local roads are very narrow and difficult with oncoming traffic especially large lorries but most drivers were sensible we avoided any accidents. Being National Trust members we visited most of the local homes in the area as far away as Plymouth. Up until the last 2 days the weather was warm and sunny but then Storm Calann arrived and the wind blew all the leaves from the trees which up until that point were changing colour and looked wonderful. All in all we enjoyed our trip and stay.
Mrs Cole

It was our second visit to this super first class bungalow.. Exceptionally clean, well furnished and warm. It was a joy to return. Home from home and the owners are lovely people. Very suitable for disabled as I was and the bathroom was fine.
Mrs Crane
September 2018
Tony and Marilyn provided the best-equipped holiday cottage we've ever stayed in - also spotlessly clean, which isn't always the case! Wonderfully peaceful too, whilst still being well located for days out in Devon and Dorset. We had a wonderful week in Plymtree.
Mr Evans
August 2018
Lovely location lovely views across the countryside.. Very peaceful and restful. Marilyn and mike who own the cottage are really nice and welcoming and very accommodating Even the people in the local shop and pub made us feel very welcome. Ideal location for traveling to popular places Would give this A* hopefully will holiday here again.

A very warm welcome.. A fabulous place with ourstanding views. Watching a woodpecker just outside the window alongside so many species of birds plus peace and quiet meant so much. The accommodation was spotless, no expense spared to provide exceptional comfort. The village has a community shop which had so many locally made produce. Everyone so friendly. The owners made our stay perfect.
