We had a marvellous time, shame the weather wasn't kinder but that being said the cottage was so lovely and welcoming that it didn't matter at all. We spent a lot of time there because of the weather but it was an amazing bolt hole in the middle of nowhere. No noise or light pollution, there were pheasants wandering around including the odd peacock. It was fantastic and we are looking forward to being back there is October. Amazing find.

April 2019

We had a super time thank you. Lots to do and see around the cottage and local area. Great walks and good beaches.

March 2019

We had a lovely time staying at Preston House Cottage. The location is great for getting around Devon and the New Inn is only a mile away and does great food. The cottage was cosy and we enjoyed having the wood burner on in the living room.

Great location and beautiful cottage with very generous welcome hamper. Had everything we needed for a lovey week in Devon.

September 2018

Yes, great holiday cottage, Lovely and clean and warm welcome by owner and generous welcome pack. Ample facilities in cottage and great location to stay.

September 2018

Our fourth visit to this superb cottage which, for us, is a perfect location. The cottage offers everything we need in a beautiful, quiet location. The owners are extremely helpful and pleasant and the cottage is always very clean and tidy on arrival with a much appreciated welcoming pack. Just a mile or so from the cottage is the New Inn at Moreleigh which offers a limited but extremely good menu and very reasonable prices. The landlord and staff are very friendly but booking is strongly recommended. We will be booking again for 2019.
