“A lovely little gem of a cottage hidden away from the stresses of everyday life”
Reviewed 11 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Take a soak in the jacuzzi, put your feet up in front of the fire and settle down with a bottle of wine and a choice of movie - all that after a walk in the nearby Dartmoor National park.

Would defintely recommmend to a friend.

(Make sure you ask for directions, Google cant be trusted!)

“great spot for an autumn getaway”
Reviewed 14 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Just returned from a lovely week at the Old Stables Buckfastleigh. The cottage itself is great, tucked away at the bottom of a pretty mews, but with no trouble parking a short walk down the street. Apart from the very well equipped kitchen, lovely large and comfortable bed, wood burner etc, it also has some really nice touches - we particularly liked all the well cared for house plants and the mini conservatory. It's in a great location too for exploring either Dartmoor or the South Hams and coast, and Buckfastleigh seemed a nice, quiet but friendly town.

“wonderful”
Reviewed 29 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

What a beautiful cottage to escape hectic life and recharge the batteries, and yet all of the mod cons, plus some, in case you can't quite let go. We couldn't have asked for more, centrally situated for great days and yet tempting to stay in, light the fire and curl up with a good book, for us perfect. We can highly recommend Greenway, Agatha Christie's holiday home, an enchanting place to visit. All in all, a fantastic holiday for us and already hatching a plan to return...we will be back

“Cute and Quirky”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

A great base for exploring a lovely area. Cute and quirky house. Could do with a new tin opener and better mood lighting in lounge. Also oven door rattles. Still had a great time. A good time had by all. Thank you
