We loved it, one the best properties we've ever rented
Yes, very much and the owner was friendly and helpful.
Yes it was great. We really enjoyed our time in this cottage.
We loved our time at Auton Court. The location was perfect for us. Out of the way of the crowds, a beautiful view of the countryside and walks on our doorstep. The beds were extremely comfortable, the water hot - and talking about water, the best tasting tap water ever. Auton Court was warm and welcoming. And there was plenty of space for our party to spread out. We tended to stay in the kitchen - and outside when the weather was good. Rosemary was a lovely host.
Not really - we had a great time, thanks.
We had an excellent holiday and would love to return in Summer to ennoy the lovely terrace and dining al-fresco.
Auton Court is a beautiful, very comfortable and thoughtfully decorated home from home, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the company of family or friends. It has lovely views over peaceful countryside yet is just a few minutes drive from Kingsbridge and Salcombe and several stunning beach and cliff top walks. Our family of 6 adults stayed for the Christmas week and so appreciated the beautiful Christmas tree, fairy lights and candles and the log burner ready lit on arrival…thank you Rosemary. The kitchen is very well equipped and with its big table and comfortable seating is perfect for larger family groups. We can highly recommend The Victoria Inn in Salcombe for atmosphere, friendly service and an enticing menu and The Fortescue Arms at East Allington for a warm welcome and delicious home-cooked fare.
Our stay was memorable and we were greeted on arrival to be shown around. We would highly recommend this property for all the right reasons. Especially the helpfulness of the owner
On arrival we were met by the owner and made to feel very welcome. The homemade cakes, local wine and eggs were a lovely surprise. The property was very welcoming and felt like a little piece of home in a beautiful grounds and the farmhouse kitchen was a delight.
A beautiful, secluded setting. Gorgeous acres of land to enjoy. The barn was perfect with welcoming gifts and plenty supply of fresh eggs to enjoy on the Aga. Rosemary the owner was more than accommodating and made great effort with our three eager children. Not wanting to leave our dog, Rosemary even dog sat for us which helped enormously. A most perfect setting.
Rosemary couldn’t have been more helpful nor the property more quiet and secluded and spacious but a base within striking distance of the whole of South Hams!
A perfect holiday in a lovely house and a special thank you to Rosemary the property owner .
We had a lovely stay. Rosemary was such a helpful, kind host. The property is so well equipped, it's truly a home from home. We loved the garden and surroundings. Complete peace and quiet. We would definitely recommend this property and will consider returning in the future.
Everything to the highest standard. Friendly welcome by owner. Loads of parking. Excellent patio and bbq's with quality tables and chairs. Comfortable beds and well appointed bath and shower rooms. Very rural and first class for dogs. The only drawback is the very narrow lane approaching the property which has no passing places on one longish stretch. Had to reverse a long way when we met a tractor and trailer but this only happened once! We enjoyed a very good dinner at the Old Bakery in Kingsbridge that cost about £35 pp with half bottle wine each.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday ,we thoroughly enjoyed it ,the weather did help - Very friendly and helpful owner thank you
A lovely house in a beautiful location. Exceptionally well equiped throughout , especially the kitchen. Lots of lovely extra touches such as fresh flowers and an endless supply of logs for the wood burner. Very large fully enclosed garden , perfect for children and dogs. Will be booking again.
We had a wonderful week stay at Auton Court. Rosemary made us feel very welcome, the house is beautiful and spotless. It very much felt like our own home. Lovely on the rainy days to stay warm inside in front of the fire, lovely on sunny days to enjoy the garden/outdoors. It is very spacious with lots of homely touches. It was exactly what we hoped for and we will definitely love to come back and stay again. Thank you!
ROSEMARY WAS WONDERFUL - MADE US SO WELCOME IN THE SNOW! HOUSE WAS SO WARM AND COMFORTABLE WITH LOADS OF EQUIPMENT IN THE KITCHEN AND LOTS OF ROOM FOR OUR DOG.
Such a beautiful house and grounds, it was so welcoming and had everything for our stay. Rosemary the owner could not do anymore we shall definitely return to her beautiful home.
We had a wonderful stay at Auton Court. It’s the perfect location: quiet and peaceful but within easy reach of the main town and surrounding villages. The house is comfortable, well equipped and spacious, and the grounds are lovely and very well kept. Rosemary, the owner, is friendly and super helpful. Highly recommended.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Auton Court. An unexpected bonus was that our grandchildren were able to feed the horses. The barn is set in a beautiful location and full of character.
