Perfect holiday cottage !

June 2019

Very enjoyable. Good to see updates since last year, ie garden furniture, microwave and TV. Appreciated the bedding plants, and home comforts. Thank you for another very happy stay.

August 2018

Had a lovely stay and would definitely choose the property again. The comments for additions to improve are minor ones in the grand scheme of things, but worth mentioning.

August 2018

Lovely property, very well appointed and the owners were very helpful. Beautiful area of Devon and so many attractions to explore.

July 2018

All excellent and well equipped. However the road outside was very, very noisy and started quite early in the day. We wondered if wooden shutters would stop this constant noise as it would prohibit our return in the future which is a shame because it is a lovely cottage and within a range of interesting activities.

June 2018

We really enjoyed our stay, and appreciated the work that had gone into the property; furnishings and equipment and instructions. Everything was very organised and easy to use.

June 2018

My mum, dog and I really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was beautiful and very clean. The owners were very welcoming and informative. The kitchen had everything that you needed and the bathroom was lovely. Very enjoyable week.

Thank you so much for your delightful feedback which we have passed on to the owner. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back sometime soon. The Toad Hall Team.

We had a wonderful stay at 1 Moonsmead. The cottage was beautifully presented and we loved the log burner. It was very easy to find and communication with the owners was great. I would highly recommend this cottage

September 2017

Loved this property. So much thought had been put in to make sure the stay was enjoyable. All furnishings really good and there was everything you could need. From the minute I walked in felt at home. Had a lovely ambience and was so light and airy. Bed was really comfortable which is always a bonus. Would highly recommend.

June 2017

A great holiday from start to finish. Excellent service from Toad Hall and we couldn't fault our accommodation. The owners were extremely welcoming and helpful. We unfortunately left behind our phone chargers and they immediately let us know and very kindly posted them to us first class. We will definitely use Toad Hall again and hope to return to Moonsmead soon.

We found the accomodation very clean and comfortable. The owners were very helpful. We would recommend to friends and family. An ideal place for a base to see the South Devon coast. People in village very friendly.

May 2014

Lovely cottage in a small, friendly town with all you could need within walking distance. A great location to use as a base to explore the beaches and towns of South Devon if you wish. The cottage owners are most thoughtful and couldn't be more helpful. The property is equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable stay and the standard of cleanliness is always high.
