“Simply stunning!!!!!”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our lovely daughters booked us a short break to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary, and for a pair of hard working busy londoners this was the perfect place for us. From the moment we arrived we just relaxed, we loved every aspect of the cottage from the stunning back garden to the amazing views from both upstairs and down stairs.

Thank you for the lovely bottle of champagne that was waiting on ice for our arrival, we enjoyed the lovely local pub a couple of times once for a lovely meal and the second time we had a cream tea. Everyone we met were friendly from the lovely staff in the pub we even met Linda the housekeepers daughter who was thrilled I had noticed the pretty paper roses she had placed on our bed when they were preparing for our arrival.

I can only echo all the other reviews, this cottage is the perfect escape from reality and being back home has made me realise how much we all need to just relax and this is the perfect place to do exactly that, thank you to Suzy and everyone who works so hard, we loved our stay

“The Perfect Cottage in a Perfect Village"”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This cottage is a wonderful blend where the cottage, built in 1705, is virtually unchanged. Yet through a meticulous and caring renovation enjoys all the conveniences of today. Every detail is taken care of, from the wine on the table, the champagne in the fridge, the scones and clotted cream......well, the list goes on.
Take away a few cars and the village is the same as it would have been centuries ago. The area is perfect for walks or just being lazy. We'll be back!

“An exquisite property in an idyllic location affording a truly wonderful break”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is a delightful thatched cottage with an exceptional level of attention to detail, even down to the provision of peanuts so that we could feed the birds. The quality of the furnishings and provisions for our stay was five star.

Would strongly recommend a stay here for taste of luxury in an idyllic location.

“An absolute haven from the turmoil of life! Couldn't recommend highly enough”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and could not have had a more delightful stay! We arrived feeling completely haggard from London living and were utterly refreshed upon leaving - it really was a transformational holiday and we can happily attest to it's all being down to Suzy and her wonderful cottage.

From start to finish Suzy was an absolute delight to deal with - friendly, full of great tips for the area and really professional. She also contacted us at the end of our stay to ask if there was anything that could have been improved upon. (There wasn't!)

The cottage is just charming right down to the friendly Bristol-ian decorator working on the cottage down the road. Every detail had been thought of right down to optional black out blinds in the bedroom drawers, "at the pub" door signs and very fluffy bathrobes and slippers.
The wood we were provided with allowed us to have 1 very long fire every day for the whole of our stay which was great. Nothing is scrimped on.

Be warned (and rejoice in the fact that) there is absolutely NO signal anywhere in the village and even in nearby towns - it was nigh on impossible to get a text or email. BLISS!!! :o)

There is a really lovely walk from the cottage through the woods along the river that takes you out on to the golf course at Bovey Castle - no more than 10/15mins gentle stroll door to door. The use of the Bovey Castle gym and pool facilities is great - because frankly you have to do SOMETHING to burn off the delicious scones that you're presented with on arrival.

We can highly recommend Bovey Castle, Topsham, Hound Tor, Wistmans Woods and Gidleigh Park. We've already decided we will be going back and cannot recommend Moorland View Cottage highly enough.

Go - you won't be disappointed!

“This must be one of the most romantic cottages in Devon, if not the UK”
Reviewed 2 May 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Moorland View Cottage is heaven! Such a peaceful, romantic spot - wandered through the snowdrop filled woods over to Bovey Castle for a massage and swim using the very handy membership card, had an exhilarating walk up to the local Tor on Dartmoor bumping into a few Dartmoor ponies on the way. Great meal in the local pub. And the cottage itself... Pure luxury. So many little extras from the softest plumpest pillows ever, to the marshmallows ready to toast on the open fire. The perfect boutique cottage. Thank you.
