“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Just returned from a 5 night stay in The Lodge. Cottage is in a lovely position in the centre of the village and in a spotless condition. It is well equipped and everything seems very new. If you don't feel like cooking the local pub The Drake Manor Inn is close by and serves very good food, in fact we ended up eating there every night. Outside the lodge facing on to a large lawn is a seating area which is a lovely sun trap which catches the evening sun. Thank you Andrew and Carol for a lovely stay and of course not forgetting Quito.

“Immaculately presented, extremely comfortable.”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The hosts, Andrew and Carol made us very welcome during our stay. The Lodge is very well appointed, all bedding, towels, kitchen utensils etc being provided, together with tea, coffee, sugar and a pint of milk. Ideally situated for Dartmoor and surrounding towns/villages. Off-road parking provided. No village shop, but there are two supermarkets a few miles away just outside of Tavistock.

“Just right for us!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

As good as it gets!
A quick response when booking, queries answered promptly, communication was excellent, friendly attentive hosts, our dog was welcome, the lodge was comfortable, spotless, newly renovated and well equipped. The lodge opens out onto a large lawned garden and is set in a charming village with a good (dog friendly) Inn 2 mins walk away. It was quiet and peaceful (except for the church bells on Sunday morning which were lovely to sit and listen to) so for us it was perfect.
The lodge is in the heart of a village so may not suit those seeking total privacy but has been skillfully renovated and cleverly designed to feel like a country setting as it is surrounded on two sides by lovely mature gardens.

Thank you for making us so welcome.

“Spotless Accomodation”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The Lodge was perfect for our weeks stay. It was very comfortable, very well equiped and spotlessly clean. The service we recieved from Andrew and Carol was first class, they met us on arrival and were very helpfull if we needed anything during our stay. The location was excellent for walking on Dartmoor and surrounding areas or as a base for accessing the coast. Highly recomend this property. The pub in the village was very friendly and is only a short walk from the Lodge, had a great selection of food and drink.
