  • Relaxing and out of the way.

    "The cottage was very comfortable and the locals are very friendly. I had some problems with the country lanes as unnamed and difficult to navigate. The cottage itself is a little out of the way but has great facilities."

  • Lovely dog friendly cosy cottage in good location

    "Stayed in Hartshorne for February half term. Excellent walks around local reservoirs. Good for visiting both English Heritage and National Trust places of interest. Fabulous pub with good food opposite, also dog friendly, with huge log fire and welcoming staff. Very pleased with useful information and contact from owner prior to arrival. Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday."

  • Delightful cottage in a superb location for exploring Dartmoor

    "We stayed for a week in early December when the weather was "mixed". The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The wood burning stove was much used and a real bonus at this time of year. There were just two of us (plus the dogs), but the cottage would be absolutely fine for two couples or a family. We had our two dogs with us, with prior notice; they were welcome and we found a pile of "dog towels" waiting for us in the porch which supplemented the ones we had brought to deal with the inevitable muddy paws. The securely fenced and gated garden was really useful and the dogs loved it. So did the people - the terraced areas must be a wonderful place for an evening drink in the summer. The village of Holne is a delight, with some very friendly people, an interesting old church, and best of all a village shop (superbly stocked) and tea rooms (nice food) open all year and run by volunteers who are a mine of local information, or just up for a good chat. The area has great walking, but to access the best requires a bit of driving first. The open moor is close by and so is the River Dart, within 10 minutes walk on the Two Moors Way and offering some exciting kayaking for those inclined, or otherwise some lovely riverside walking. One downside was that the village pub (50 yards from the cottage) was closed and has been since Spring 2016. There was much talk amongst local residents of it reopening soon under new local ownership, and let's hope it does, as with a good pub, this village would be just about most people's idea of rural bliss. Whilst it is theoretically possible to park a car by the cottage, the track in is very narrow, has an awkward turn, and you have to reverse either in or out - no turning space. We did this once and then decided discretion was the better part of valour and used the village hall car park instead, which is just the other side of the church so a very short walk away. Overall - highly recommended. If you want a two bed cottage in a Dartmoor village it is hard to see how you could do better."

  • Wonderful accommodation and good location for a relaxing break

    "We stayed in Appletree Cottage which was clean, nicely furnished and well equipped. The views of the garden and surrounding fields were amazing. There were plenty of books and games to use if you fancied a lazy day at Appletree and also lots of local tourist information which we found useful when planning our day trips out. The property is well positioned for driving to local attractions and a number of Cornwall's wonderful beaches. We visited Lanhydrock, Port Issac, Looe, Polperro (the Looe to Polperro coastal walk has amazing views), Boscastle, TIntagel, Padstow, St Ives, Truro and Wadebridge. We had some wonderful meals: Rick Steins restaurant in Padstow, St Kew Inn, Welcome Stranger Fish and Chip Restaurant, Old Inn at St Brewards and the Blisland community shop does a fresh cooked breakfast. The Camel Valley Vineyard is also worth a visit; you can buy and try their wonderful wines and sit on their terrace which has stunning views. Gerard and Linda made us really welcome and the welcoming treats were a nice surprise. We really enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation staying at Appletree Cottage again."
