“An excellent cottage and location”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A well presented and maintained holiday home, Pond Cottage is within the bounds of the owners farm and as such is an idyllic situation. The owners are very friendly as are the ducks and geese!

“A beautiful and well equipped cottage in wonderful rural setting”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

A lovely 2 double bedroomed traditional cottage with great views. Everything provided; dvd's, books, games, fantastic wood burning stove (sadly needed in June - weather awful). However, we were warm and cosy inside. The owners were thoughtful and kind. Would love to go back to explore the area fully and enjoy the outdoor pool!

“Brilliant cottage for a relaxed holiday”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

I loved this place. The cottage itself is palatial - the living space and kitchen downstrairs are finished to a very high standard, with underfloor heating and a large TV and DVD player for nights in with bottles of wine. They even have a DVD library and books!

Upstairs is also lovely, comfy beds and pretty rooms. We had a great weekend just chilling out here and were seriously impressed by Renate and John, and the care they put into this place. They gave us a bottle of wine, eggs and a little jar of jam on arrival too :)

Will definitely be back, and have already recommended it to friends.

“Relaxing retreat in beautiful Devon surroundings”
Reviewed October 8, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

My husband and I stayed for two nights in October with my daughter, son in law and two year old grandson. As other reviewers have already said, John and Renate couldn't be more pleasant and accommodating hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Even down to the loan of a pair of wellies! I could live in Pond Cottage all year round. It is cosy and tastefully furnished with everything you will need for a comfortable stay. The little things are provided (condiments, dishwasher tablets, tea towels, kitchen roll, shower gel etc etc) which makes a self catering stay so much less hassle. We were welcome to explore the farm and even got to see a baby lamb that was born the night before we arrived. If you visit in the summer, you can even use the owner's swimming pool. What more could you want?! A highly recommended place to stay. Thank you John and Renate.

“Ideal first family holiday”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The ideal place for our first family holiday with our three month old daughter. From the minute we stepped out of the car we were greeted with a very warm welcome and I knew we were going to have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Our hosts were very helpful and provided us with a baby bath and cot for the little one. The cottage is very comfortable and if you don't find what you need you just ask...we wanted baking beans to make a quiche and were kindly lent some....we also got to taste the lovely green beans, courgettes and tomatoes from the garden! We went for walks across the fields of the farm and enjoyed watching the ducks waddling about and the sheep chomping away. There were plenty of local places to potter around and in the end we thought a week wasn't long enough!
