“Great weekend away with friends”
Reviewed 27 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Fanatastic stay at Corner Cottage with a group of friends for a wedding weekend nearby. Beautiful cottage, we loved the open plan kitchen and living room with the wood burner. Great location for walks and nearby pubs. Peaceful location. Thank you!

“Wonderful place!”
Reviewed 25 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We've been staying at The Lodge for years now, having first stayed at The Mews (also fabulous) before we had our kids. It's in a beautiful, quiet area, tucked away on the farmland yet still within easy reach of local amenities and about 30 mins from Plymouth, with plenty to see and do nearby. The beaches are beautiful and there are loads of walks which we've done to different levels over the years depending on the kids' ages. Each time we visit we either discover a new beach or another lovely village or pub we haven't been to before. The Lodge itself is beautifully appointed and kept in perfect condition. Unlike many self catering places, there are quite a few thoughtful extras such as organic milk, tea/coffee, dishwasher tablets and wood for the fire, to name a few. You can even have an arranged tour of the working farm which is nearby. Katherine is a joy to deal with and always keen to ensure we have a good visit. I really can't recommend it enough - although to be honest, we'd rather keep it just to ourselves if we could!

Thank you for your review and I hope you, the children and the dog discover a few more hidden coves and beaches on a future visit!

“One of my favorite places in the world!”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had another spectacular stay the Crofters Cottage for a long weekend in October. I just love the incredible beauty of the surroundings, the particular privacy of Crofters, the lovely hikes, the fireplace...it's just a cozy, wonderfully relaxing and restorative experience. We prepared a little better this time by stopping at the Riverford farm shop in Yealmpton on our way in, and didn't get into the car again until we had to leave on the last morning. They once again left us tons of great meats, veggies, eggs, milk, etc. The fireplace was working a lot better this time; my husband was able to get us lovely fires going each night. We did a hike in each direction on the Sat & Sun we were there; and got lucky with a cloudy and a sunny day, but no rain and not too hot or cold. We love this place and intend to return again as soon as we can.

Liked best: The location- absolutely beautiful!
Liked least: We had a hard time with the stovetop on both our stays- the burners would stay on high regardless of which setting. We were able to use the oven and smaller burners mostly though!

“Excellent location and fantastic standard of holiday home”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Tucked away from the busy in tranquil countryside a few minutes stroll from the coastal path. Lovely garden, awesome quality fixtures and fittings, everything you need for a great stay. Recommend the Ship Inn which is about 15 minutes drive for dinner. Great that you get access to a private little cove about half a mile away. Heed the advice of the owners, don't trust your sat nav though!

“Beautiful cottage in superb location”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A week in corner cottage. Well equipped for children with stair gates, high chairs, dream tubes, plastic bowls and plates. Cottage is in a remote location but beautiful setting and very close to some lovely beaches and the coastal path. Lovely outdoor play area for little ones which is shared between a few cottages. Large open place space which never felt small. Good parking for three cars here. Only downside is distance to main roads but was very relaxing place to stay.
