The hosts Bridget and David were very. Friendly and helpful. Cottage and garden were great.

May 2019

Lovely cottage and garden, great walk from cottage. Local pub being renovated, but Fat Monkey in Knightsbridge, excellent.

May 2019

The owners of the property were very welcoming and helpful, & the location was ideal for our dog walks in the morning,before we went out.

October 2018

Lovely place. Still finding new places to go. Ideal with the dog as there is a lovely walk at the end of track

September 2018

Very much, the owners where extremely kind and helpful and we regretted having to leave early due to health issues.

July 2018

My family had a wonderful time and the owners Bridget and Dave were so friendly and helpful. The location is ideal for stunning dog walks right from the doorstep and the perfect base for exploring the rest of South Hams by car. The property was also perfect for us, a real home from home with everything we could need, including a lovely enclosed garden. Would happily stay there again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property and area to family and friends.

July 2018

The home is so well thought out and it has everything you need and there is no shortage of anything. It is a truly a home from home.

June 2018

An enjoyable stay for us as a couple with dog. However the access from parking area to accommodation requires negotiating a fairly steep slope or using the owners steps. For someone with limited mobility it would be a problem & I don't remember it being highlighted in the info.Otherwise a lovely quiet spot of South Devon

May 2018

Yes enjoyed the stay

April 2018

Absolutely loved this place, very well equipped and the perfect location for exploring South Devon

October 2017

We absolutely loved our stay in this little cottage, everything was perfect for our needs. I would defiantly recommend to anyone, along with Toad Hall Cottages who made our stay easy and trouble free from booking. Thank you also for the bag of doggy treats how lovely! Angel and Loki really enjoyed them. Thank you very much for a lovely break. I will just add, that we left on the Friday due to one of our dogs having a vet appointment for chemotherapy, she was diagnosed with a tumour a month ago and needed to make this appointment. Thank you again. ????

October 2017

We had a wonderful holiday. The cottage is in a good location for the glorious South Devon coast and beaches and the resorts of Salcombe, Dartmouth, Hope Cove and many more. The estuary and marshes are a 10 minute walk away. The cottage itself is really well equipped, and decorated to a high standard. It was a real home from home. We were made very welcome by the owners. Despite the changeable weather (but hey, it was October!) we got out and about with our dog, and had a really enjoyable time. We hope to go back.

October 2017

Amazing. Had a great week. The dog loved it

August 2017

We had a wonderful holiday and everything that we needed was available and to an extremely high standard. The owners were extremely helpful and had much local knowledge.

July 2017

Apart from the few items listed above, the cottage was without a doubt one of the best we have stayed in. It was very homely, spacious & ideal for us & our 2 small dogs. The enclosed garden was just perfect. If we were to stay in the area again, we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. We had a lovely week, in a beautiful place.

June 2017

This was a return visit to Petersfield as we enjoyed it so much last year. The cottage is in a great position for the many places to visit in South Devon and is a home from home as everything is provided at top quality. Add to this a lovely enclosed garden and very welcoming hosts and this is why we came back!

June 2017

Despite the poor weather, we really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is very convenient for Kingsbridge and all the many lovely places around. We would like to return next year.

May 2017

Home from home! A very comfortable and spacious cottage and very well stocked with crockery, utensils, kitchen aids, etc. The bedroom was also excellent with plenty of storage space. The enclosed garden was of a good size, well-maintained and great for dog owners. So much attention to detail has been taken by the owners. From our experience we certainly intend making a return visit!

May 2017

Another enjoyable stay at this comfortable homely cottage. The owners next door are very welcoming and helpful if you need to know anything, but unobtrusive during your stay. The lovely little garden is excellent for the dog and totally secure. Would not hesitate to recommend to others.

May 2017

Lovely little home from home. Friendly hosts. Would recommend.

April 2017

A very comfortable cottage, a real home from home. The owners couldn't have been more helpful, and the property was ideally placed to explore the countryside around. It was great for our dog too. We used it as a base for walking the South West Coast Path and found it ideally placed for road and bus connections to a wide section of this path.

May 2014

My wife and i stay here for 5 days in May. Beautiful cottage, great location. I run a hotel so wanted to get away from my usual environment but still wanted some comfort, this was ideal for us. I have stayed in lots of many hotels due to work but this was the best nights sleep i have ever had. Thank you!

May 2014

Petersfield is a delightful, well equipped and comfortable place to stay. The attention to detail is excellent, with so many home from home comforts provided. The kitchen is fantastically equipped; bed is amazingly comfortable; the garden is lovely and the location is just perfect for exploring this part of the South Hams. There are wonderful walks directly from Petersfield through woodland, across farmland and close to the estuary. The owners, Bridget and David are welcoming, helpful and friendly. We have stayed in many places around this area and this is definitely the best we have found.

May 2014

Lovely cosy cottage. Perfectly situated for lots of walks with a lovely walk down to the estuary from the cottage. Very well equipped. Lovely garden for sitting out in the sun.
