A lovely holiday home. Beautiful surroundings and lots of lovely things to see and so close by. A very warm welcome and lots of information to hand. We had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay. The dogs also had a fabulous time. Lots of great places to take them. Lydford Gorge is an absolute must! Thank you for a lovely break!
A lovely place to stay on the edge of Dartmoor with a secluded, enclosed garden with stunning views.
We only had a short stay, but enjoyed every moment. The accommodation was perfect for us and our Labrador with everything on the same level, the location is perfect. You can see the incredible Brentor Church from the front door and there are some beautiful walks directly from the cottage, and the stunning Lydford Gorge is only a couple of miles along the road. We also had Dinner at the Elephants Nest - food was excellent.
Lovely cottage, great views, comfortable bed, constant hot water and our puppy dog made welcome.
We were so pleased with our choice of Monkstone Cottage. We could walk our puppy Millie from the house - she went up Brentor three times! The views were lovely from the back of the cottage too, and the local pub served lovely food. The cottage was so well equipped, and the position was great - easy access to all the places we wanted to see. We packed a lot in - Devon County Show, Cotehele House and garden, Truro, Lydford Gorge (wonderful) on the doorstep, and then one day in North Cornwall. It was lovely to come home to the cottage which felt like a home from home, after a busy day. Weather was kind too!
Thank you for your lovely review of Monkstone Cottage. I am so glad that you managed to see so many of the beautiful places that our area has to offer and enjoyed relaxing at the cottage. It was great to meet you both and our Millie loved playing with your Millie. We hope to see you again in the future.
Great time had by all
Monkstone Cottage is a lovely, comfortable, airy, holiday cottage in which we spent a lovely week. Not only is the cottage lovely, but the location is fabulous, just below Brentor Church itself. It is within easy reach of most of Dartmoors beauty spots along roads that are lightly used. I cannot recommend this holiday cottage more highly - it is a great place for walking, relaxing and 'doing you own thing', Excellent!
Perfect break in a perfect property and location.
We stayed at Monkstone for 5 days with our 2 dogs. We were looking for a getaway for peace and quiet with tranquil surroundings and comfortable premises. Monkstone was this and more and is better than described.
Monkstone is clean,homely, roomy enough for all of us along with mod cons and a country feel overlooking the Moorland.
The views from the front and back were ideal. Greenery, wildlife, and bats in the evening made it that more special.
The location is tucked away but central enough for drives to the moors themselves, nearby towns with their makets and such friendly people.
The owner of Monkstone excelled in customer service, making sure we were okay and recommended places to go and we were welcomed with creamed tea.
We have recommended Monkstone to friends and will return soon as this was our 3rd visit.
Thank you so much for the great review and thank you for recommending us to your friends. With so many places for you to choose to stay at we feel very honoured that you chose to come back to us and want to come again.
Beautiful and dog friendly. Love this place
The barn conversion is very well designed with views in two directions over the countryside. There is a view of Brentor church and of the valley. The cottage is clean and well maintained and a lovely cream tea awaits you on arrival. The owners are very friendly and helpful but not obtrusive in any way. We take out three dogs who love running in the paddock with Millie, the owners dog. We would highly recommend this cottage to friends and family.
Thank you Debbie and Pete for your review. It was lovely to see you all again. Millie really enjoys your visits. As you know from all your visits Dartmoor is perfect for dogs with lots of lovely walks for all abilities from a short stroll to a major hike and best of all the pubs are dog friendly. It's also so relaxing to come back to the cottage after a day out and sit by the fire or chill in the garden on the sun loungers. We always enjoy doing that when we go away and have tried to set the cottage up to be dog friendly with the enclosed garden. We will look forward to seeing you all again soon and wish you good luck with the house move.
