This was a lovely cosy cottage and Jill and Duffy were friendly and helpful hosts. The location is lovely, in a sheltered valley just off the moor with good connections to amenities.

September 2019

I would highly recommend Beam Ends as the ideal cottage to stay in for a wonderful, relaxing holiday and the perfect location to explore Dartmoor and the surrounding area.

September 2019

We would stay again without any hesitation. A lovely cottage in a great location and delightful owner.

Beam Ends was the best cottage we've stayed in bar none. It is very clean, comfortable and cosy, and, as it is situated right by Haytor, a fantastic starting point for Dartmoor walks. The cottage is located on a quiet road (we slept so well here!) and has amazing views. We enjoyed the cottage's well-tended garden and the house plants inside. There is a very good pub on the road and other great pubs in the vicinity. The owners were super welcoming and had left us a cream tea in the fridge as well as doggy treats for our little border terrier Trixie which was such a lovely touch. I can't recommend Beam Ends highly enough!

This is a lovely, atmospheric, house, on a great spot, with lovely owners. Jill and David were helpful when needed. Walking nearby is great. In the village is no shop, but we went to Ullacombe Farm, nearby, for organic bread, dairy, etc. The beds were good, and its great to have a nice bath. The sitting room is quite small, with the entrance door, but you can sit with 4 on the 2 sofa's. The space with the eating table is nice, with lots of light through the big skylight. Cream tea was there for a start, and a big vase with roses in our bedroom. Wonderful! Lots of love from Lex, Mirjam, Maria and Joeri.

We loved our stay at Beam Ends. Jill and Duffy are lovely hosts and obviously really care about their guests. Everything was excellent and exceeded our expectations. A wonderful cottage in a great location and would highly recommend it. Classic Cottages provided a first class service and I have been impressed with their efficiency. All in all a great experience.

Really lovely property which was in excellent order and perfectly laid out. Great little bolt hole for a family of 4 in a great location. Jill and Duffy were also really helpful and there if we needed anything. We had a fabulous week! The Davis’s (Oxfordshire)

The house and the place is a dream. You feel like in a myth

May 2018

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Well equipped and very comfortable. Will be returning soon with our dog to explore more of Dartmoor.

May 2018

Love this cottage and area, can't wait to go back. Mr & Mrs Morrish's hospitality is outstanding.

September 2017

This is a great place to stay for a holiday. Close enough to Bovey Tracey for shopping and we tried the little community shop in Ilsington which would be great in an emergency. Walking distance to the Moor and reasonable drive to the coast, National Trust properties. The cottage has a useful utility room for boots and raincoats which we certainly needed as it rained, if only for a short time every day we were there.

August 2017

The cottage is situated in an amazing place. Beam Ends is a cosy, comfortable cottage which is ideal for walkers, the scenery is breathtaking. Haytor Vale is a quiet, tranquil place that we will visit again.

May 2017

A wonderful spacious cottage, child and dog friendly, lovely village. Very friendly hosts who couldn't have been more accommodating. All-in-all a wonderful time had by all. Even the weather!

April 2017

excellent location,plenty of lovely walks and easy accessible to the coast. Lovely cosy cottage and Jill and David welcomed us with a cream tea which was delicious.A perfect break.

June 2016

Lovely cottage in a beautiful but very convenient spot for visiting all parts of the moor or simply walking and with great hosts. A very good holiday away from the hustle & bustle.

May 2016

Beam Ends was everything we hoped for in a Devonian cottage. Just the right combination of traditional charm with modern day comfort. The location was superb, close to the moors but also towns and the sea.

September 2015

What a great cottage. We had a wonderful week, helped by wonderful weather! Beam Ends was spotlessly clean, with very good bed linen and towels and well equipped kitchen. It was a pleasure to return to the cottage every day and the owners live next door and their relaxed and friendly style shows in Beam Ends. Highly recommended.

August 2015

Very comfortable and cozy cottage

August 2015

Rooms were a good size. Lovely patio area and access to the garden and the valley. All appliances were in very good condition and easy to use. Lovely to have flowers and plants in the rooms. Parking was right outside. Set in a super area to explore. Village was very quiet and peaceful.We were given a very friendly welcome by Jill and David. The cottage was very comfortable and had a lovely feel to it. We all slept well and felt comfortable spending time there in poor weather. I would recommend it to others. Thank you.

August 2015

It was a fantastic cottage and a brilliant location. Quiet in the Dartmoor countryside with dark skies and fresh air Perfectly relaxing. Such lovely hosts too. Helpful and friendly without being over obtrusive. Always there for you - why they even left us with a cream tea and a bottle of Prosecco to start with - and popped round with a beer on the terrace on a warm summer evening. What more could you ask for! It is a wonderful cottage. We will be back!

May 2015

August 2014

We loved this cottage.

April 2014

Duffy & Gill are wonderful owners and make friendly, un-intrusive neighbours. The cottage is perfect for long walks across very interesting areas of Dartmoor. The village is sweet and the shop just 5 minutes by car. The Rock Inn does excellent meals although it can work out to be more expensive than you might initially think. Fabulous area, great holiday, lovely cottage. We want to come back! Another classic holiday from Classic Cottages. Thank you.

August 2013

We enjoyed the week in Beam Ends. The well restored house with all necessary modern facilities and friendly owners was for us a very good place to explore the wonderful surronding of Hayter and Dartmoor! We can recommend this place!
