“Beautifully maintained house - perfect for a family getaway!”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in this beautiful house for a week in June with our family. There was more than enough space for the 6 of us to live comfortably. Large bedrooms, cosy lounge with a fire, and an enormous kitchen area with a table to sit around and enjoy each others company. Dartmouth and Salcombe were only a short drive and there is a lovely pub called the Tower Inn not too far away either. Two of the rooms only have single beds which isn't a major problem, and the shower was a little low on pressure. The biggest issue we had is the ridiculously small lanes and roads in the area - obviously not the owners fault in any way but worth bearing in mind particularly if you drive a large vehicle. All in all though a great value stay for such a beautiful place

“Perfect”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Stayed at the cottage for two weeks with my wife, toddler, baby, parents and Labrador. I was keen to get somewhere quiet in the country side deep in the south hams and the cottage was exactly what I wanted - the perfect base for our family holiday. The cottage is spacious, well equipped, beautifully located. There are walking and mountain bike routes in close proximity. and based upon the research to find this cottage, very good value. We're already talking about going back next year, such a great holiday only hours away from home.

“Perfect place to enjoy both a short break or main holiday”
Reviewed 17 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

When we booked Kingfisher cottage the procedure was handled in a professional manner everything was done quickly and easily.
Upon arriving we found the cottage to be very comfortable, clean and fully equipped in all areas. Bedrooms were spacious and linen was again very clean ,the main bedroom also benefitted from an en suite with the luxury of a big bath and also a shower there was also a family bathroom with the same amenities.
The location of the cottage was in a very pretty situation and a short distance from larger towns and beaches once you had mastered the narrow country lanes.

“A very nice break in a comfortable, modern cottage”
Reviewed 1 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Although there were only two of us staying, we always look for a larger property - along with the keywords, luxury and pet-friendly. It's great when an advertised match turns out to be both of those things.
