Why keith hanslow chose Woodleigh
We have been visiting the area since childhood and then with our own children and now grandchildren. We love the area, whether relaxing at the cottage, exploring the local towns or having fun on the beautiful beaches.

A very quiet and peaceful retreat.
Very much as described; comfortably furnished, lovely garden and friendly resident neighbours. Ideal location for exploring South Devon. Be careful on the narrow lanes! Some of the locals will drive much faster than a visitor, unfamiliar with the area!
A lovely quiet peaceful retreat
Our first stay at Bramleigh and we were very pleased with every aspect of the stay. Lovely spotlessly clean and tidy cottage set in a quiet rural location yet with the reassuring company of other guests and residents in the neighbouring properties. Welcome pack was much appreciated and the cottage could not have been better equipped, a true home from home. Driving the local lanes took a little getting used to but the other drivers seemed to have endless patience! Particularly enjoyed Dartmouth watching the activity on the water. Excellent wifi connection throughout the cottage but couldn’t get a mobile signal without going a way up the lane, in hindsight not a bad thing!! Would have no hesitation in recommending the cottage for a quiet relaxing getaway.
The property was lovely, really clean & set in beautiful countryside. It was a real home from home.
The wine eggs and biscuits were a lovely touch. It was ideal for visiting the coast , the walk to Topsham bridge was great. it was just perfect for us combining the coast & country. South Pool was a lovely village with a great pub, Salcombe was really pretty too. The coast walk to GaraRocks was a pleasure. The rewards of a nice drink and spectacular views was well worth it. I would happily recommend this property and look forward to the next time.
Thank you for your lovely review. It was great to learn from this and your fabulous comments in our visitors' book that you really appreciated the cottage and the local area and found so many places to enjoy. Lots of our guests return and we hope that you will too.
Such a lovely property. Well equipped & peaceful.
This was easily the best cottage we've stayed in and was equipped with everything needed. The rooms are spacious & modern and the surroundings were exceptionally peaceful. Clearly, Keith & Jean have been very thoughtful when furnishing and equipping the property and we even found items we didn't expect. To sum up, we can't think of anything that would improve your stay and the milk, cookies & wine were a very welcome gesture. Book & enjoy!
Hello Lin and Rog
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the lovely comments.
Fantastic, cosy and has everything you need.
This cottage is amazing, it is so peaceful and in a beautiful location. The owners have thought of everything you need. It has very friendly neighbours and has beautiful beaches nearby. Who needs to go abroad! We will defiantly be back. The little touches like eggs, milk, wine and cookies go down a real treat too. The cottage was very clean and information for surrounding places to visit and places to eat were very well appreciated. We would recommend Blackpool sands and Bigbury on sea for beaches and go to Torquay to the Model village and Kents caverns. Loved every minute.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday and we do hope you will return.
A peaceful and beautiful spot to stay.
We stayed in Bramleigh late last summer and have just returned for a few days. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and found the cottage to be cosy and very well equipped on both occasions, whatever the weather outside! We found it to be immaculate, very well maintained and welcoming. We visited several of the beaches nearby both during warm, sunny weather and during dramatic storms - both stunning. We would highly recommend this beautiful cottage nestled in the peaceful countryside but within very easy reach of so many attractions.
We are so pleased you had great stays and thank you for the lovely comments. We do hope you will come again.
