Lovely cosy cottage in a great location for exploring Devon
This cottage was very comfortable with everything we required plus the added bonus of the hot tub. The location was perfect for exploring Devon and we found some great places to walk with our dog. The village shop was well stocked and the staff we all very friendly. We would recommend Fingle Bridge for a nice walk followed by a drink or meal and highly recommend the Tom Cobly Inn for for food especially Sunday Roast.
We have had a very enjoyable week and would definitely like to return.
Disappointed to arrive to see muddy building site next door,Home and Away should inform customers ,it was quiet but muddy to cross for walks along the footpath with dog . Cottage was cosy,but not as clean as it could have been,eg loads cobwebs,woodlice and dead flies on the floors ,which we cleared and dirty windows . Bedrooms very comfortable,with nice bed linen,and bathroom with plenty hot water.kitchen well equipped.
Cottage is in a very good position for exploring Dartmoor .
Excellent location, lovely place.
Stayed for a week in this dog friendly cottage, hot tub was a real treat, just to laze in, in the evening after a day out with the dogs (dogs didn’t go in hot tub by the way)!! Close to Cheriton Bishop where there is a lovely pub called the Old Thatch, there homemade pies are the best. Cottage is ideal location to Dartmoor, and other surrounding area. Only took us 45mins to get to Torquay, would certainly book again.
Happy time at Cheriton Bishop.
Nice quiet location, plenty of private parking, fast and reliable wi-fi (a must these days) spacious cottage with established flower beds. Non-overlooked rear garden with sunny aspect. Really enjoyed the hot-tub. Great location for exploring Devon. Owner was responsive, helpful and thoughtful.
Rural and relaxing
Lovely area,peaceful and just what you need away from home, the owner was lovely and left a nice treat for our arrival of scones would recommend to friends and family.

Lovely cozy lodge
Lovely cozy lodge, comfy bed and sofas and a spacious kitchen. Hot tub was warm enough to be in even when the outside temperature was low. Welcome pack of breakfast essentials and scones on arrival. We were sad to leave

There are ample walks through woodland and along rivers. There is a footpath from the farm. The Tarka Trail is a short distance away. Dartmoor National Park is easily reached, with the likes of Two Bridges, the historic Warren Inn and Widdecombe-In-The-Moor well worth a visit. For the adrenalin seekers, Haldon Hill is for you, with miles of cycle trails and tree surfing at Go-Ape.
Why not try Carriage Driving.
The Eden Project is only 90 minutes away and a must.
And much much more to do.
