We did enjoy our stay and always love visiting Devon. It is our second time with TOADHALL Cottages. However, as mentioned above, Clematis Cottage is delightful and in a beautiful location, but we honestly felt it is tired and in need of some tlc. The damp smell when it rained was quite unpleasant and I nearly slipped on the steps going down to the paddock (the edge corner stone) literally fell off in one piece. Many of the paving stones are loose. The tap in the kitchen dripped incessantly and we felt it lacked any personal touches in complete contrast to our previous stay last year. We were not even given a bar of soap/hand wash for either toilet or the kitchen-disappointing for the price paid and when surely it’s a basic necessity.

Many thanks for your feedback which was reported during your stay to the housekeeper and acted upon - we have followed up with the owner and Housekeeping team. Thank you for reporting the dripping tap which was recitified immediately upon being reported, during your stay. We believe the damp smell in the cupboard was due to the mop still being damp on arrival. The gardener has been requested to rectify the 3 loose stones in the garden. Liquid soap is usually supplied in the kitchen and bathroom, apologies if this was missed. We thank you for are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. From The Toad Hall team.

We really enjoyed our first holiday with Toad Hall Cottages and will definitely book with you again and have already recommended you to friends. The people I spoke to on the phone when arranging the holiday were extremely friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed our stay and as our first time customers of Toad Hall Cottages we'd certainly recommend you and will be returning. Also, just to say the welcome hamper and flowers were beautiful and a lovely surprise. Thank you. David & Sharon

I believe we left a couple of items behind us (for which apologies). I emailed Pebbles on Friday evening (albeit after 5pm) to ask if they had found them. I've not heard back. I will send a follow up email on Monday morning.

Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased to note that you enjoyed your holiday, and trust you retrieved your forgotten items. From the Toad Hall Team.

We loved this cosy cottage and the dog loved the enormous garden. The cottage was very clean, tidy, warm and well-equipped. It is located in a peaceful hamlet within walking distance of Bantham beach. We would definitely stay at Clematis Cottage again.

What a wonderful place. This cottage is beautifully set in the valley of West Buckland and perfectly placed for Bantham and Thurlestone. We had everything that we were looking for. As a family of 4 with dog, this is hard to beat. The garden and meadow is stunning - our girls are convinced that fairies live at the bottom by the stream and spent most of the week talking to them. So did the the dog. We had breakfast on the terrace, and cosy nights and family snuggles inside with the open fireplace and very comfortable and well furnished lounge. After long days of walking and surfing, this is a joy to come back to. The kitchen is very thoughtfully put together and we found all that we needed. We've been back and forth to Devon for generations. This cottage is one of our favorites. There is no doubt that we will return.
