“Fabulous”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Think I have found the relaxation zone. After a small blip of not being able to gain entry as the door code had been changed - made ourselves at home in this fabulous cottage. Can only repeat what gap has been said before - garden amazing - a real sun trap & wanted for nothing during our stay. Lovely stroll by the river to Bovey Castle & a cycle over Dartmoor to blow away the cobwebs. Lovely interior with every thing you could want for provided - would recommend the starter pack. Hope to return again one day

“Perfect Honeymoon”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed here for our honeymoon and really loved it, we didn't want to leave! The cottage has lovely luxury touches but also made us really feel at home straight away. Suzy is a really thoughtful owner! Loved the local pub and also had Tim the Devon chef cook us dinner one night. Membership to Bovey castle was a fab extra!

“Beautiful cottage in idyllic locations”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Myself and my boyfriend have just had a fabulous week at Moorland View. Cannot fault it, we absolutely loved the cottage, the beautiful decor, furniture and fittings and the wonderful garden. The place was spotless when we checked in and Suzy was always contactable by e-mail before our stay to answer any questions we had. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage or to stay again myself in the future. The only bad point for us was having to leave at the end of the stay! Suzy also provided a great guide of things to do, the things we did included the following: Ring O Bells is a nice pub a one minute walk away, the drive to Widdecombe is lovely through the moors as is the pub there the Rugglestone Arms. We used the facilities at Bovey Castle and we also dined At Gidleigh Park, would recommend all of those things. So nice hearing a horse clip clop past in the morning and also hear the squirrels who come down in the mornings, open the tin of bird nuts and help themselves. Lovely peaceful place and we got lucky with the weather too. Thanks for a great stay Suzy.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

What a great place to spend a few days. Suzy has thought of everything, the cottage provides the perfect combination of real home comfort and luxury. The Ring of Bells next door is a great friendly pub and restaurant to spend a night or two in. And if you fancy staying in without cooking yourself then we definitely recommend Tim 'the devon chef'. He came and cooked us a tasty and reasonably priced 3 course meal and it is something everyone who stays at the cottage should do. What a lovely break in an equally lovely cottage.

“Secret Escape”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Suzy's email with a special last minute price reduction was too tempting to refuse! My husband had no idea where we were going so it was all the more special. We had an amazing time, everything was perfect, from the hampers of food provided and ordered, to the quality of furniture, fabrics and ambiance! Suzy's emails with tips for things to do were so helpful. We had a great meal at the local pub, The Ring of Bells, lovely food, great atmosphere and only 2 minutes walk from the cottage. Swim at Bovey Castle, walk or cycle (two bikes/helmets provided) there, stomp over the fields (wellies provided in various sizes) or just kick back with the all room surround sound music system. Can't wait to go back. Thanks Suzy for your very efficient service and the use of your fabulous cottage.
