It's a lovely place with great attention to detail. It's well equipped with all the things provided that most holiday lets don't provide like towels and toilet rolls to washing up liquid and hand soap. My daughter loves staying here as 'her' room comes with 2 boxes of toys. I could stay in the shower all day. The area is really good - it feels like you're miles away from torquay because it doesnt feel "touristy" but actually the harbour (and some great fish and chip shops) are only 15 mins drive. Would recommend a cream tea at Lulus (near the harbour) and the model village is great fun. We'll defintely be back again I'm sure.

Martin (we unfortunately didn't get to meet Kim!) was a super host, lots of contact prior and he met us on arrival. The unit is well kitted out and comfortable, and there is a wealth of local and other information, probably the best we have ever had in a cottage rental. While it is in a suburban area, it is close to both town and country and dog friendly which is essential for us!

The cottages are close to lots of places of interest and easy to find. As a family we would thoroughly recommend the Pilgrims Rest experience. We are already looking forward to returning in the near future. Steve and Jill Baker
