The cottage was within easy commuting distance from Ashburton and I passed Buckfast Abbey every day on my commute- how cool is that? The cottage was perfect for me. It was warm, cosy, well equipped and a peaceful haven after a hectic day's cooking. The village is picturesque and very well placed on the edge of the moors. I went walking in the evenings and at weekends and visited the welcoming pub on a few occasions. The owners Dave and Maggie were the perfect hosts. They were welcoming and always there if I needed them but respectful of my privacy. They even ate my food! Dylan the dog deserves special mention for doggy friendliness. Ashburton is a wonderful foodie town and I enjoyed visiting Totnes and Buckfastleigh when not cooking. I can highly recommend the cottage and I am tempted to come back- this time for a proper holiday!

This was a surprise gift of a few days away for my daughters/son in law after their wedding. They loved it! Very inviting when they arrived, the log burner had been lit and they allowed us to decorate with banners and balloons etc, they even hung some beautiful lights for them too. Good quality fittings, squeaky clean and Wendy was so lovely and helpful, It feels like we've made a new friend. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely holiday home. Thankyou so much, If you want a beautiful, private, quality get away...this is the one!

The whole family had space to relax and a super time was had by all. We will miss the Old Library restaurant in Ashburton and hope to return to the area again in the Spring. Thank you Wendy for all of your recommendations and assistance.
