Lovely cottage with swimming pool a great asset, good size and temperature. Quiet location ideally situated for great walks on moors or coast.
Very enjoyable. At our advanced ages going upstairs to the lounge was an effort but well worth it when we got there as it is a spacious room with lovely views from 2 aspects. Sadly we were unable to use the magnificent swimming pool for health reasons. Very well appointed kitchen with quality appliances. The bed was comfortable and an excellent shower room. A most enjoyable stay and convenient for many places to visit.
We arrived at cottage at 1.30pm (we knew we couldn’t have the cottage until 3pm just wanted to see where it was). No cleaner had been at this time Couldn’t see how the cottage could have a really good clean in the time between 1.30 and 3.00. Found dog hairs on downstairs bathroom floor.
Many thanks indeed for your feedback. Teams of cleaners are tasked with working together to turn a property around during the changeover window, throughout the South Hams - in this case 3 housekeepers were in attendance which will have provided sufficient man-hours to prepare the cottage. We apologise that you found some dog hairs on the the bathroom floor, the cleaners obviously do their utmost to remove all trace but as a dog-friendly property, a few have escaped them, for which we apologise. We are delighted to note that despite this you enjoyed your holiday and found the property to be excellent. From the Toad Hall Team.

We had a great week in Devon, thank you. Whilst the property is dog friendly, the garden is not fully enclosed, meaning that dogs can go exploring, potentially down to the main road (whilst there is a gate, there is nothing to stop the dog getting out by going around the back of the property and out the other side). Would also have been great if the garden was mowed prior to arrival. Field great but as quite overgrown, it meant v wet feet every time we ventured beyond the garden!
A really lovely cottage in a beautiful spot. The pool was excellent a really good size. The adjacent field is great for dogs. The cottage is ideal for exploring the area from beaches to Dartmoor. Great stay.
The garden furniture had not been cleaned for some time and was covered in bird droppings.
Thank you for your feedback, so pleased that you found other features of the cottage to be excellent, (especially the pool, it's fab isnt it!) and thank you for letting us know about the garden furniture, our apologies that this was overlooked, the housekeeper will see that this is cleaned regularly. We hope to welcome you back again soon! From the Toad Hall Team

Great location. Every facility needed was there. Lovely standard of accommodation and bonus of swimming pool. Good to have field to walk dog in. Excellent stay.
A hidden gem. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lower Well Cottage which was warm and welcoming on a cold and wet week in February and use of the superb indoor swimming pool was an added bonus. We would have no hesitation to book this property again if we decide to return to the area.
We have really enjoyed out stay in this charming, cosy cottage. Swimming every day has been really god for us too. The field is great for the dog to have a good leg stretch and to chase a few pheasants! Thank you and I am sure we will return!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in everyway !
