October 2017

Very comfortable and immaculate accommodation inside and out. Lovely welcome from the owners, who also provided a great welcome pack of wine, coffee, tea and sugar, bowl of fruit and even milk in the fridge. Very impressed that even the dog was catered for with blanket, towel, food bowls and biscuits! The bed was extremely comfortable and a lovely strong shower. The courtyard garden was very attractive, well lit at night and totally secure for our dog. Lovely coastal walks nearby and plenty of dog friendly eating places. Ideal spot to visit all the towns and attractions no more than an hours drive away. Nearby Slapton Sands and the nature reserve became a favourite early morning walk. All in all the best cottage we have stayed in and great value for money. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed our stay very much .We had an excellent welcome .The bottle of wine and the food basket as well as milk in the fridge were very much appreciated. The bed was comfortable and the provision for the dog excellent. The property was extremely clean , well decorated . The owners couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. The apartment is well situated for access to many of the lovely beaches and local towns. There was lots of books to read and videos to watch had we chosen to use them because of bad weather but fortunately we were able to get out every day and enjoy the surroundings.

We loved it at Fairwinds, John and Janice are so lovely and friendly. Nice to have a parking spot at the property as well. Thanks.

May 2017

Really good place, well equipped and very comfortable. Courtyard is very handy when the sun is out and the small wood opposite is great for a quick dog walk. The beach is only a mile away although would not recommend walking on the road. Boat and train trips from Dartmouth are great. The pub in the village is closed but the restaurant looks good.

We really enjoyed our stay.The accommodation is absolutely fantastic & a very homely feel. We loved the fact that books & games were provided too. The surrounding area is beautiful & we enjoyed long walks with our dog & 6 month old son. Many many thanks.

February 2017

We were recently the first couple to have a wonderful , relaxing stay at the newly renovated apartment above . The apartment was really lovely and so well thought out , with a very private outside patio space . The bed was ultra comfortable and the rooms throughout the apartment are decorated to a high standard and spacious too . The apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped with all we needed to ensure a very enjoyable stay. The owners, Janice and John were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. We will most definitely make a regular visit to this great spot and wish them lots of success with this little gem Susan and David Richards
