Immaculate cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Holly cottage is a gorgeous property. Absolutely every need has been catered for and the cottage is immaculate into the bargain. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, you're left to enjoy your holiday with the knowledge that they are close by if needed. Good parking, lovely outside areas (balcony is a great bonus). The cottage has fantastic far reaching views and an abundance of wildlife literally outside the door. We had a wonderful holiday and will definitely return, highly recommend.

Just the ticket

  • 5 of 5

Arranged this stay at short notice for an unusual amount of days (ten) and was no problem. The stay was for work in the Devon area and was nice to come back and relax, walk in the woods or just admire the lovely views. The place was clean and nicely decorated. Will stay again if working in the same area again.
