The cottage was immaculate with a fabulous welcome pack and dog bowls, dog bed and biscuits for my terrier. The family kept everything totally silent whilst we were on site, as its a working farm. They were there if we needed them and had thought of everything. We had a problem with the tv aerial and it was fixed within minutes. The bed was an absolute dream which make a change from some places ive stayed in. The weather was all that let us down, otherwise we would have used the BBQ in the very sunny front dog proof courtyard. Be aware local pub in Slapton very small and popular book if you want to go. Brilliant cottage lovely family.

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful accommodation set in a working farm/small holding. The cottage is well equipped, spacious and nicely presented. The owners and their family were very friendly and extremely helpful to our needs. The unique "Devon welcome pack" on arrival was amazing and very welcome after a long drive to the cottage. Our dogs were made very welcome and provided with beds and treats. An excellent holiday cottage we highly recommend.

We especially enjoyed our welcome pack of a cream tea after a long journey it was most certainly appreciated . little Ollie the dog also enjoyed his welcome pack of doggie biscuits. There was lots of places to see and do - a good place to be based. A lovely family they made us feel very welcomed.

Wonderful week spent in the Cottage which has very new owners who are very friendly and asking for genuine honest feedback. Lovely location and surroundings. Cottage is beautifully kept and would benefit from a few more homely touches but otherwise superb
