“A superbly appointed holiday cottage - everything of a very high standard”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Appleloft cottage was a real delight - very comfortable with everything you'd want for a stay. We were very warmly welcomed and felt spoilt by the dressing gowns and slippers provided!! The fresh garden flowers on display, homemade cake and eggs/milk provided on arrival were lovely. Fantastic power shower and beautiful garden.
The only aspect which was less than perfect was, when sitting out in the cottage's private outside area, the privacy & tranquility were affected by the proximity of the owner's DIY workshop.

“Lovely and cosy”

Lovely and cosy little cottage just perfect for two people. Beautifully restored and furnished it had everything you need from crockery to crisp bed linen, towels and bathrobes. Lovely little patio and garden.
Julia and Martin were very welcoming and more than happy to help with recommendations of restaurant and pubs in the area as we were spending New Year's Eve in the village.

Location was perfect for exploring Dartmoor and just of the A38. I would definitely recommend staying here.

“Super, cosy, comfortable Apple Loft self catering cottage.”
Reviewed 26 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

What a super cosy comfortable cottage for a quiet relaxed chill out few days. Everything was 5*
Fresh flowers, home baked cake, quality toiletries, and crisp white linen, and bathrobes.
The cottage which has been tastefully, and sympathetically modernised is attached to the main house (Kilbury Manor) where the owners Julia and Martin run a B&B.
We had a very warm welcome, and do not hesitate to recommend this delightful cottage.
