This our second visit and just as lovely as the first! A comfortable, restful and beautiful place to relax and enjoy! Thank you.

Ray & Astrid
Thank you for a wonderful visit to this area. The cottage is welcoming, cosy and peaceful. We had some very enjoyable trips out to Chaford, Lustleigh and Lynton. Had a couple of very satisfying walks in Fernworthy Forest, also the Valley of Rocks was well worth the journey to Lynton on a beautifully sunny New Year's Day.
The forest walks opposite Eggesford Station are v pleasant, especially if one walks from the cottage and back via the parish church. Pubs we liked are King's Arms at Winkleigh, The Cleeve Inn at Lustleigh and for a traditional Sunday roast dinner - The Portsmouth Arms at Chawleigh. Thanks again-hope to be back!

Stella & Matt
Lovely short break - nice to have tea, wine, milk and logs. Great to see the lamb!
Good pub nr Crediton - The Lamb at Sandford.

Lucy, Julian, Ivan & Erica
This place is perfect and has everything you need. The lamb and Roxy will be greatly missed by Erica-
we hope to come back again. Thanks for the warm welcome.
p.s. Horse riding at Boldtry stables was great.

Wonderful Cottage, thank you. Good walking area.

Sue Smith
Had a lovely few days. thank you for your friendliness.

Kofi & Katherine
Our stay in your cottage was absolutely delightful. We were very impressed with the renovations you had done. It has so much character and a genuine homely feel. The kitchen is spacious and well kitted out. We were also surprised at how much there is to do in and around Eggesford. You can make this the sort of holiday you want, if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and slow down the pace, it is remote and quiet. However, there is also a good choice of leisure activities to choose from. Highlights for us were visiting Lynton and Lynmouth, Fly Fishing and the tour of the airfield.. Thank you Nigel and Jackie for your warm hospitality, we hope to return soon.

Bill, Henrietta, Emily & Rebecca

WOW!The views, the walking, location, hospitality, cottage, Hector & Roxy. Such a relaxing break - we'll be back.
