We were very impressed by the cottage, it has excellent facilities and is well presented and clean. Possibly the best cottage we have rented!

April 2019

A wonderfully quiet break! Most of the time the only sounds were those of birds. Would definitely like to return.

November 2018

We were very impressed by the exceptionally high standards of this cottage. It is perfect for a family or two couples and had everything we needed. Perfectly placed for exploring the surrounding countryside and coast. Start Point is a short drive away and shouldn't be missed, and the Millbrook Inn in South Pool is a lovely walk away along a green lane.

Amazing holiday, cottage was perfect and had everything you could need. Thank you

September 2018

Great location & beautiful cottage with gorgeous interior design & decoration. A real home from home with comfortable beds & lovely linen, spotlessly clean. The welcome wine, milk & delicious flapjack was really appreciated. Thank you.

September 2018

We have had the most wonderful relaxing holiday. The cottage is absolutely perfect. Clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Lots to do in this beautiful area. We would love to come back.

September 2018

With wall to wall sunshine, drives' around the countryside and coast together with locally caught fish meals has made our stay here at this delightfully well equipped cottage a memorable one. Our walk to South Pool along the old road enjoying the abundance of wild flowers to the pub was a highlight. The evening G & Ts in the summer house watching the swallows dip and dive was very special.

September 2018

Lovely cottage. Walks to Millbrook Inn along a peaceful road with plenty of wildlife. Visited beaches, hired a little boat for the day.

Very good holiday

May 2018

This was a perfect setting for country lovers and within easy reach of wonderful coastal walks. The cottage was first class.

April 2018

Lilac Cottage was the wonderful Devon hideaway we had hoped for. The cottage had everything we needed and was beautifully presented. It is located in a sleepy Hamlet within easy reach of all South Devon has to offer.

September 2017

a lovely cottage- thank you

October 2014

A real quiet place. The Cottage was lovely. Clean and warm. Has a lovely Garden, our children loved it. Only the entrance for parking with a bigger car (we had a Citroen C8) could be a small problem for the first one or two times. When you looking for a peaceful place, you will be right there. But the next Town is about 15 - 20 Minutes by car. Bernd from Austria

September 2014

Lilac Cottage is the perfect place to get away from it all while still being close enough to enjoy the fabulous beaches and towns of the a South Hams. Local pub: Millbrook Inn serves superb food and we also visited the Oyster Shack, Crabshell Inn and Gara Rock. A culinary delight around every corner! Can't wait to come back soon.
