Friendly owners could not do enough for you, a lovely place to chill out for the week with no worries. Very well appointed property in a quiet rural location. Very comfortable beds, lovely grounds, can't wait to go back!

The cottage was excellent and the hosts most welcoming. The farm itself is lovely; very tranquil and quiet. We had a lovely time, thank you.

The property is amazing and in a fantastic location. The owners could not have been more welcoming and we had an amazing time. The kids loved visiting the horses and were allowed to feed them and I would definitely recommend this break to any of my friends or family.

Peaceful quiet with beautiful countryside all around. The fishing lake was superb. It was a fantastic barn conversion - overall probably the best holiday accommodation we have ever stopped in. The location makes it ideal to travel North or South Devon.

We loved our time at Lakeside. Our hosts were welcoming and took real care of us. The barn conversion is done beautifully and it was hard to tear ourselves away from the stunning views of the countryside and the peace and tranquillity of the setting. An absolute gem!

The cottage was delightful with modern decor and everything was immaculate. We had no hesitation in using items out of the cupboards without having to wash them first and the sheets and towels were snowy white. We had full control of the heating, such an important feature when the weather is so changeable . The views are wonderful and a delight to wake up to. Owners are on hand if needed and they are really nice and welcoming.

An exceptionally well finished and clean cottage in a great location. Very friendly owners who have put a lot of effort into making the cottage somewhere comfortable to stay. We stayed in late October and the electric radiators kept the place nice and warm.

We were seeking replication of the very peaceful environment in which we live in the Cotswolds, and it came up to and beyond all expectations. Delightful and thoughtful hosts, in no way intrusive.

I cannot speak highly enough of the standard of amenities in this cottage. The beds were especially comfortable and the bed linen of a very high quality. We also enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location and appreciated the welcome we received from the owners.

The property was very clean, and gave us a very good and warm welcome. We hope to come back once more to explore more of the region.

This was the best accommodation we have ever had. Definitely stay there again. The owners were particularly helpful and very friendly. In Horton, Sunday carvery at The Dovecote was the best we've ever had. The White Hunt Hotel was also very good for evening meals. The miniature pony centre Dartmoor is brilliant for small children.

This accommodation is fitted out to a very high quality and the surrounding land and views are idilic. We would recommend this accommodation to anyone to use as a base to explore the Devon area.

We had a lovely week at Lakeside, the area is ideal for getting to all the places we wanted to visit. Peaceful, clean, great decor, everything you need, fully equipped kitchen. Comfy beds, good WiFi and friendly owners. Nice lake if you like to fish, and great walking locally. We will return.

A group of four spent a week at this location. From the moment we arrived the owners were friendly and very helpful. The property was spotless and nicely decorated with everything you need for a stay. The beds are amazing to sleep in. The location is perfect to explore Devon as it's fairly central so easy to branch off to different places. The fishing lake is one of the best places we have ever fished. We literally caught one after another and all were good sizes. We will definitely be staying again and can not recommend this highly enough.
