The cottage was as advertised,part of a farm,mainly devoted to equestrian pursuits-lovely horses.Cottage was clean,beds comfortable and cooking arrangements all present and correct.Dogs well catered for-enclosed area in back of cottage,so dogs could be let out safely,also,and a big plus,a lovely wooded walk near by where the dogs could safely be let off the lead.Owners were very friendly and helpful,as were the local people-in fact this was a big plus-how genuinely friendly people were,locally and in the shire in general.All in all a great relaxing holiday.
Mrs Horton June 2023
We had a lovely stay at Cherryblossom Cottage . We were made very welcome by the owners and the cottage was clean , comfortable , and well equipped. It’s location meant that we were able to access some beautiful walks by the coast and in the countryside . It’s enclosed garden meant we were comfortable taking our dog with us on our holiday , and he enjoyed meeting the owners dog when we arrived !
Mr Harper September 2022
Very dog friendly, with enclosed outside area. Cottage is well located for walks in beautiful countryside, and very cosy with wonderfully comfortable beds. Great local pub at the Duke of York in Iddesleigh.
Mrs Hellon September 2022
We love this cottage, from the dark skies to the Dartmoor views. We've stayed several times and will be back. A warm welcome and lovely welcome pack
Mrs Bruce Lockhart May 2022
If you are looking for a peaceful holiday that is ideal for dogs (and I'm sure children), this is the place. So nice to be able to walk out the door and have a lovely walk in the woods within minutes. Very well-equipped cottage, exceptionally nice owner and family, good location for sight-seeing.
Dr Speake March 2022
Lovely cottage, very quiet location set in beautiful countryside. The garden was ideal for my dog so we were able to take advantage of the wonderful spring sunshine! Highly recommended.
Mrs Ryan October 2021
A fantastic well appointed cottage with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The bed was excellent and very comfortable. The welcome wine very much appreciated after long drive.
Mrs Hellon September 2021
The cottage is comfortable and cosy, the garden is very safe, apart from if you have Houdini terriers! Owners are on hand and always go out of their way to help, without being obtrusive. Dark skies give wonderful chances to see constellations. Owls are chatting with each other, a really peaceful place and great base for exploring Devon.
Mrs Yule July 2021

A very nice cottage to spend a weekend or short break. Well equipped and comfortable with a lovely sitting out area in which to relax. Generous and welcoming hosts. Have already shared the details with a friend (and her dog).
Mrs Murphy June 2021
A beautiful little cottage in a peaceful location. Sitting in the garden after a busy day exploring, listening to the birds cheerfully chirping, bees buzzing busily and cows gently lowing in a nearby field, as I sipped a nice glass of chilled wine supplied by the owner is a memory Of pure relaxation and just what was needed after a trying year. Thank you Classic Cottages .
Mrs Drake April 2021
Our stay at Cherry Blossom Cottage was truly special. The owners had added many extra details such as providing a gorgeous chocolate cake, a jar of dog treats and milk in the fridge. They also provided teabags, coffee and sugar as well as dishwasher tablets. Everything was spotless, the towels were properly white and fluffy and not a single dog hair from any previous canine visitors. We were encouraged to roam the stables and the lovely woods across the fields where we thoroughly enjoyed using the two zip wires there. A lovely location to unwind and explore what North Devon has to offer.
Miss Gentry April 2021
Ideal cottage for dog-owners wanting a relaxing country break within easy reach of the North Devon coast and Dartmoor.
Mrs Woolman October 2020
Cherry blossom cottage was perfect, relaxing and comfortable and met all our needs. In particular the garden was entirely suitable for our two dogs. Janine and Shauna were helpful and friendly. We will definitely look to stay here again
Miss Bell July 2020
Not rentable due to bat infestation. Imagine someone staying with a flying animal phobia or with young children around.
Reply from Classic Cottages
We are so sorry that your stay was affected by a bat finding its way into the property. Bats are a protected species and a valuable part of the wildlife ecosystem; in older properties such as this, bats may have been roosting in the area for many decades or more, before the original buildings were converted, and wherever possible we are required to live harmoniously alongside them. Thankfully it is very rare that they become so disorientated that they find themselves accidentally inside a cottage, but we do entirely understand how upsetting you found this. We really regret the disruption this caused and were pleased to be able to agree suitable recompense for your distress. Tanya, Customer Services Manager
Mrs Howes December 2019
Owners were very welcoming and made us feel very at home. They put up a Christmas tree for us and left mulled wine and mince pies. It was so lovely to find these waiting for us .
Miss Gould September 2019
Liked the fact that it was described as a secure garden for a dog and on arrival, we found it actually WAS secure! The last place we went described their garden as 'secure for dog' but on our arrival, we found that the fence was very low - perhaps secure for a dachshund!! So we ere very pleased, and also there was the added bonus of having the owners private woodland to walk in (we have a reactive dog!). Also, we met the owner and she was absolutely lovely and couldn't have been more accommodating.
MRS LOWE September 2019

We had a wonderful week at cherry blossom cottage - very child and dog friendly with a lovely garden, games room and acres of safe land to explore. The owners were relaxed, helpful and friendly.

We would definitely book again.

A wonderfully relaxing girlie/ dog walking weekend away! The cottage was a very beautiful comfortable place that felt like home the minute we walked in. The bottle of wine and cakes on the table were a lovely touch. The owner was very friendly and extremely helpful with pointing us in the right direction for good walks with the dogs. She also lent my friend some wellies for the weekend! Would give this great place full marks!
