A lovely, well equipped cottage

5 of 5
This was our 2nd stay in 12 months at the lodge. 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.

An excellent short break!

4 of 5
Four of us have just returned from an excellent short stay at The Linney. 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!

Lovely cottage just as advertised had a great week at the Treshing Barn. Owner was very helpful

5 of 5
The property was perfect for 8 people all sundries provided such as tea coffee etc. We arrived to find milk cookies and a nice bottle of red provided free of charge. 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
