Reviews

We have had such a lovely week in your beautiful cottage ~ so comfortable & cosy. After having a good sniff around to inspect her new home "Star" discovered the toy box and proceeded to run around with each toy in turn! We have made the most of the surprisingly good weather and your good supply of walking books and maps to explore the South Devon countryside. "Star" particularly enjoyed making friends on Goodrington Sands. Thank you so much.James, Roy & Star, Hastings - 1st February 2017
We have had such an amazing weekend, thank you so much for allowing us the pleasure to stay in your beautiful cottage x Your cottage is everything and much more than what we were expecting from the online photos and descriptions. Our dog has really enjoyed the relaxed and safe environment he has been able to explore. Your kindness and added sentiments do along way and we will definitely be returning in the future! Thank you and best wishes,Kim, Scott & "Prince Vlad" - 1st September 2016
