Lost and Found is a superb cottage - well equipped, clean and comfortable and in a superb location. Great not only for Greenway but also for all of the area with access via road but lots that are accessible on foot or by the ferries on the river. We had a lovely stay and would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in this part of South Devon.

The cottage and setting is lovely, and the housekeeper is to be commended. Prospective guests need to be aware it is very isolated and we would not recommend the steps down to the property for anyone with mobility issues.

Great property, excellent location, very clean and comfortable.

Good web site easy to use

A lovely house and spotlessly clean, with a splendid view. Everything you could need is provided and the host was very helpful and friendly. A nice walk to the ferry, and the steam train nearby (you can see it from the terrace). Brownie points to me from my husband, as I chose it!

A very well appointed property in a beautiful location, with many interesting places to visit within a short distance of the house.

This is the second time we have stayed at this cottage and this is the second time we have not been disappointed. The cottage is in a great location. You would not need to use your car for a week as so much to see on your doorstep. We had a lovely surprise when we arrived to see a Devonshire scone tea waiting for us, most acceptable having just completed a six hour journey. Would consider a third visit in the future.

Just the place to come to when you need a quiet time to wind down and recharge your batteries. It feels like a home from an earlier less-frenetic era.

Your staff, when I called, were brilliant. Your website is very easy to use. Will definitely be using you again next year. Just deciding where to go.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location.

If you want to stay somewhere that is breathtakingly pretty, is quiet and peaceful (other than the wildlife - take a bird book) and very comfortable indeed - this is the place. Worth it for the perfect view from the bedroom window - and I do mean perfect. Walks on your doorstep, Agatha Christie's summer home just across the field (taking you past the best view in the world - bench provided) and Dartmouth not far away. Did I mention the steam train popping by at the end of the garden?

What a place for a holiday. Just don't tell anyone else - we want to keep it just for ourselves. Shhhhh.

It sounds like you had the most perfect holiday in this pretty and peaceful location. How amazing to see the steam train pass by at the end of the garden! Thanks so much for posting your review; we can't promise we won't share so you can have this cottage just for yourselves though! Kelsey, Customer Support

Peace and guiet : disturbed only by the occasional 'toot' of the steam train entering the tunnel and by the 'hoot' of the owl at night . Fantastic week, we shall return.

The views are fantastic, very peaceful. A great place to relax and unwind.

A perfect place for a peaceful break. Beautiful views, very clean and well equipped.

Beautiful, peaceful, but isolated location. Access to it along a narrow lane with many pot holes. Stairs down to property would not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems.

The cottage was light and spacious and the kitchen was well-equipped. A good location for local footpaths and access to Greenway house and garden.

Oooh Lost & Found. The ideal country cottage tucked away down a lovely Devon lane. Comfy, well-equipped and a view to die for. Dash up to the main bedroom and look down over the garden to the Dart, yacht moored picturesquely - just so. Take yourself out to the garden for lunch amongst the flowers and the birds. Sit down on the patio in the early evening and watch for bats flitting amongst the trees. So many gorgeous walks on the doorstep. The steam train just below. A walk into the village for the Sunday papers and a pint at the Manor. Agatha Christie's summer home just over the fields - very good scones btw (cream on first!). Glorious.

We're so pleased to see you enjoyed another lovely stay here. Thanks so much for sharing your experience - you may have started a debate on whether jam or cream goes first however! Tanya, Customer Support

The location of 'Lost and Found' was excellent and the cottage it's self is brilliant. Fantastic outlook over the river Dart and very close the Greenway estate. Excellent walks close by over the beautiful local countryside. Look forward to staying here again.

We will recommend this cottage to friends and family, we enjoyed our stay very much, we will return.

so peaceful and relaxing beautiful position and views

The name of the cottage is Lost and Found, and we certainly found it to be the best in every respect. It is a joyful experience to stay there and I could not recommend it more!

The friendly staff at Classic Cottages are ready with advice and assistance if needed and are just a phone call away.

We love this cottage and have stayed many times.

The property exceeded our expectations, very clean and well equipped. The view was superb - just as described!

A really superb country retreat to relax and get your inner calm back.

Don’t agree that good at manor pub was average. It was better than that. Don’t agree that local Fish and chip shop was excellent. It was ok but nothing special. Cottage was really lovely.

Beautiful peaceful location.

A very clean, comfortable, peaceful and quiet cottage.

So glad we discovered Lost and Found, it made a perfect holiday. I intend to suggest it to Swiss friends who love the UK and visit every year for a vacation and then return for Christmas!

It would be hard to find anywhere more idyllic than this beautifully welcoming hidden jewel. xx

As before, lovely cottage, great location, the village approx 1.5 miles away good village shop, reasonable prices. Good Butchers next door. Just a great place to chill out.

One of the best cottages we have ever stayed in - comfortable, spacious, well-equipped and beautifully furnished. The location is superb, with wonderful views over the river, and also over Brunel's viaduct with regular steam trains passing by. The cottage is less than 10 minutes' walk from the Greenway Halt station - with our 5-day Jubilee Pass, giving unlimited travel on the trains, buses and boats (excellent value), we were able to explore the area without having to negotiate the many single track country roads in our car! We would gladly return.

Excellent holiday and a beautiful cottage in a peaceful location.

Comfortable cottage in lovely location, clean and well equipped.

Great cottage to get way from the rat race but still retaining all the mod-cons.

Lost and Found is a real "find". It is in a stunning position with beautiful views and is very comfortable indeed. It is so convenient for the Dart Estuary and surrounding areas with excellent walking and National Trust properties nearby. We do hope to return to this very relaxing property.

Fabulous view from the garden. When we heard the steam train whistle blow as it went into the nearby tunnel we knew to go down the garden to watch it pass in the valley below. The cottage and location had the feel of going back a generation or so to a time when things were not so constantly rushed and hence contributed to a relaxed holiday.

the best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in - peaceful, quiet, and comfortable with beautiful views and a perfect location for exploring this part of Devon

Excellent property, very clean and well equipped. Great location if you want a quiet holiday, but also near enough to all the beaches and attractions.

Lovely spotless and comfortable cottage in an absolutely beautiful location.

Lots of space, very comfortable furniture and beds. Lots of light throughout the property and great garden for sitting out. Very tranquil, excellent views and great walks locally.

Very clean, every household facility available. Restful with beautiful local walks.

Great location for visiting NT properties at Greenway, Coleton Fishacre and Overbecks. Lovely walks from the house. Very cosy for an early spring break.

Fabulous cottage, as good as the write up in the brochure.

The cottage is exquisite and very cosy with unusually comfortable beds. The location is idylic and great for walks and general exploring of the area. The views are breathtaking. We'd love to come back.

This is a wonderful cottage in an outstanding location. Highest standard of cleanliness and facilities and very spacious accommodation, ideally situated for the Greenway estate and the Dartford steam railway and ferries. Best to park at Churston station (2 miles) for easy railway and ferry connections via Dartmouth.

Wonderful cottage in beatiful, peaceful surroundings. Perfect location.

Lovely equipped cottage with great views. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Fantastic cottage in a stunning location but still conveniently close to places of interest and services.

A very comfortable cottage with lovely views. It is very well equipped and provides very comfortable accommodation. I would be happy to recommend a stay here and we would love to return there one day.

Beautiful cottage in peaceful location. Wonderful views of the River Dart and regular sound of the steam train passing below the garden ! Just along the lane and across the field you have Greenways (Agatha Christie's holiday home). Well worth a visit. Couldn't fault the cottage in any way - owners have done a wonderful job - home from home - heating on for when we arrived !
Steve and Kathy Heath, Broadstairs

a very comfortable and weel appointed cottage in splendid locaiton

Bathrooms need to be cleaner as there was black mould around the bath / shower panel tiles and hand grips. Also the drainage from the baths was very slow and gurgling indicating a blockage.

Thank you for taking the time to review Lost and Found. We were sorry to hear that you found some problems with the bathroom; we passed this information on to the Owners after your holiday so that they could address your comments. We're pleased to say that when we visited in early December 2013, the house was looking clean, fresh and in excellent condition. We hope you had a great time in Devon and enjoyed your stay in Lost and Found. Tanya, Customer Support

This is a wonderfully comfortable cottage with fabulous views to the Dart estuary. It is fun to watch and hear the steam trains travel through the valley, and Greenways Halt Station is within walking distance. We bought the Jubilee Pass for five days unlimited use on the train and most ferries which enabled us to get around without using the car.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
