We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cherry Cottage. The children loved the garden and it felt safe to let them enjoy themselves with other children on site without parents checking on them all the time. It was very spacious for 8 people and we didn't feel on top of one another. It would have been nice to have a chair or stool in the bedrooms to put clothes on and one double room didn't have a bin for makeup wipes etc. Spacious property for 8 people. Enough equipment for our stay. Lovely safe garden for children age 7&8. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.Mrs Joan Newman - 22nd August 2018
What a lovely cottage and location to enjoy a winters weekend. Beautifully prepared and spotless throughout. This lovely home invites your family and friends to enjoy it, to entertain and to cook and spend time together. The beautiful local area, rolling lawns, ponds and BBQ area are certainly calling us back for a summer visit. Mr Pink - 22nd December 2017
My family's had two wonderful holidays staying at Buckland. We're 5 plus a dog and we had lots more room than we needed, everything was thoughtfully provided and of a lovely standard - nice bed linen, brilliantly equipped kitchen, great TV, and all spotless. The location is fantastic and on each holiday we've been spoilt for choice for days out at the beach, seaside village and town, moors, or just very locally around Slapton and wonderful local walks. The owners had provided thoughtful local info and suggestions and contact details, and the instructions for working things, finding the property and the key were all great. I'd totally recommend Cherry as a wonderful place for a family holiday. Mrs Woodrow - 18th August 2017
We had a great time at Cherry cottage as an extended family group. The accommodation is nicely arranged with plenty of bathrooms and space on the upstairs floor. The downstairs has a lovely lounge where we could relax if the weather was bad (which it wasn’t!) The garden is great and is situated in a very special and secluded rural area of the South Hams. There’s a really lovely local walk around Slapton Ley and woodland. We had 4 young children with us who loved the freedom of the garden and hopefully we didn’t make too much noise! With 2 dogs, 2 families, 4 young children in tow, it was a great place for us to all relax enjoy some family time in a beautiful area and enjoy fantastic days out on the many beautiful local beaches.
