Enjoyable week, the village is handy for walks, local community shop excellent. Plenty to keep occupied locally.
This was a spacious, spotless cottage that was perfect for us and our 2 dogs. The garden was much appreciated for its size and privacy. The caretaker and all other locals were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Blackawton is not a holiday village so you get a real sense of Devon, which we loved. The local walks leaflet was helpful and the voucher for the volunteer-run village shop was an unexpected lovely extra. Thank you.
my husband and I and our daughter husband, two grandchildren and two dogs have just had the most wonderful holiday, staying in your beautiful cottage. It was so spacious, clean,everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The bottle of wine was a lovey touch . We all fell in love with the village,finding everybody so friendly. We had wonderful meals in the pub across the road the cottage, and it was a pleasure using the cute little community shop. We loved every day of our holiday .many thanks again .x
