Had a lovely relaxing week. The cottage made a great base and wish we had a dog! The Churston Court is worth a visit for it's weirdness - have a good look round it! Made use of the National Trust Card with a Greenway and Fishacre, a toss up for the best. Dartmouth is spectacular. Cockington is a hidden gem of older worldy and quaint cottages and crafts. Well worth a visit and bye for now!Steve & Karen - 22nd October 2017
Lovely Cottage, great base to explore the area. We have been to Elberry Cove which we loved and so did our dogs. Enjoyed the steam train + ferry to Dartmouth had a brilliant day. Had some really fabulous food at Churston Manor, Beamers + Berry Head Hotel. Really enjoyed our stay (so did our dogs Milo and Cassie) + hope to be back soon. Jill and Gordon - 22nd September 2017
Another fabulous stay at the cottage. See you next year!Jane, Paul & Bracken - 2nd September 2017
Thank you for such a wonderful stay in your lovely and cosy cottage. We've done so much in this week, we feel as though we've been here for ages and it feels like home from home! From crabbing at Broadsands, to Sea Kayaking at Goodrington, to a superb 10 mile walk covering Churston Cove, Elbery Cove - Broadsands for a well desrved ice cream, then back home. We've had a couple of trips to Brixham (RockFish highly rec) and a fabulous trip over to Blackpool Sands (are of the nicest beaches I've ever seen) taking in the ferry across at Dartmouth (to get there). Truly a holiday of a great memories!Lisa & Oscar - 19th August 2017
We have really enjoyed our time at Churston Cottage, a week is never long enough. Sad to be leaving after a magical week on the South Trust sites (Coleton Fishacre is a must) and all the many pretty coves. The cottage was a welcome retreat to rest our weary legs after long day in the sunshine. We even managed to tire our Border Collies out, something we didn't know was possible. Thank you and hope to be back again soon. Andrew, Emmy, Kinder, Daisy - 16th July 2017
We Arrived after a long wet drive and the we were delighted to get to the cottage. It's lovely... by the time we had unpacked and put the kettle on, the sun was shining. We've had a fab few days of lovely, sunny, bright weather. We walked to Brixham via battery Gardens had a breakfast in curious kitchen and spent the afternoon at Churston Cove with the dog and child. I even manage to read a book in the sunshine whilst the dog swam and child played. A fish and chip supper from Rock Fish at Brixham harbour is a must, delicious. Coming home from the cottage is lovely. We ventured to Torquay on the ferry - this was a lovely tip again the sun was shining for us. We took a picnic from products bought at Churston farm shop. The quiches are so tasty! We walked to Godrington via Elberry cove along the South West Coastal Path , as the house guide recommended and come back via steam train. The weather was rather blustery, hence the walk was out short but a beautiful scenic route. The steam train was a real delight. A day trip to Dartford on the car ferry then drove to Salcombe; the Sandy Beaches on a warm day were lovely. The Victoria Inn welcomes dogs so we stayed later for a dinner and got the ferry back at dusk - it was very pretty. The time here has been awesome, the cottage, a welcome, delightful base to explore the surrounding areas. We will be back! Thank you Emma & Buster for your lovely, cosy and toasty cottage!Love from Claire, Fin, Marc & Freddie - 16th April 2017

Thank you for everything - we will definitely be back.Jen, Alex and Bella - 23rd July 2016

Our cottage was great. In a fabulous location with easy walking access to the sea and town and steam train station. The Churston Arms is worth a visit and really dog friendly as was our cottage. We walked, talked, ate lots of fresh fish, sunk a few cool beers, and relaxed and read a book! Thank you.Mike Seaton from Bagshot - 1st August 2015

A lovely week even though the weather has not been on our side!We have had some great days out, using the steam train to Dartmouth and river cruise- make sure you go in good weather! We also did the south coast trail from Kingswear to Brixham (12 Miles) not for the faint hearted but stunning scenery and we managed to get the collie tired!Fab dog friendly eats: Churston Manor for 'posh' night and the Manor Inn for 'pub grub'.Thank you for letting us stay in your your lovely cosy cottage!Will, Kate & Babs (the hyper collie), Wiltshire - 1st August 2015
We have had a wonderful time in your delightful cottage. We have been on some amazing walks (well, hikes actually) and we are going home much fitter than when we arrived. We have also eaten some very lovely food, so we are going home much fatter too!We have taken some amazing pictures and made the best memories.

Thank you for a truly lovely week in a beautiful little cottage - we managed a full week of wonderful adventures despite the rain and the wind! Highlights would be a gale force walk across Bantham Sands to Burgh Island for a pink in the Pilchard Inn, catching the steam train to Darmouth, and a fabulous New Year with your lovely locals at Churston Court! Thank you Emma and Buster for introducing us to wonderful Devon!Lauren and Phill - Leamington Spa - 1st January 2015
To Buster: Thanks for the dog treats and the tip for swimming. I was very scared of the water, so barked a lot at the waves which was fun. I am so exhausted from all the walking...Freddie xxx
Had a great week at the cottage! Spent a lot of time on the South West Costal path, enjoyed very much the walks + coves along the way. Visited Dartmouth via the Steam Train + ferry, also enjoyed the river cruise up the Dart River, as well as the boat trips over to Torquay from Brixham. Very much enjoyed our time here and at the cottage and would love to return one day. Helen & Chris from Manchester
