It was a great thrill to be the first guests to stay at what the owners affectionately call 'The old broom cupboard'. Situated in the peaceful grounds surrounding the owners home on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, with sweeping views across open countryside, a short drive from
historic Tavistock and a stones throw from Sir Francis Drake's Buckland Abbey (NT). Tastefully furnished, decorated, spacious, and spotlessly clean, a lot of thought had been given in providing everything needed to make our stay very comfortable and enjoyable, including numerous personal touches. We were made to feel very welcome including a generous Welcome Pack, particularly some delicious homemade cake, marmalade and blackberry jam. The only downside was handing back the keys at the end of the week !
If you're considering spending some time in this beautiful corner of Devon, we would not hesitate in recommending 'Broom cottage'. Thank you Sylvia and Robert - we loved it.
The property is so well equipped, we did not need anything. Unfortunately when we arrived the property was so hot. The first night there was a constant noise coming from the pump. We had no sleep and so had to call Dave the maintenance man who came the next morning. Dave was incredibly helpful and dealt with the problem without any fuss. However we could not get the temperature down and so had to keep the doors and windows open when in the property.
The location is fab. Our dog loved the beach. It is a shame there is now nowhere to go for a drink within walking distance, us having been told the hotel up the road has just been sold.
We could not fault the cleanliness of the property or its facilities. Our girls loved the table football, it really made their stay great. The only downsides were the mattress in the main bedroom and the second bedroom having no window to open to let air in.
The owners have really thought of everything to make your stay relaxed and welcoming.The decor is great and so are all the items in the kitchen, we did not need to pack half of what we did.
We will definitely not hesitate to book this property again in the near future.
Thank you very much for making our New Year a special one.
