We have stayed here many times and are returning again shortly. Simply just perfect in every way

This was our third visit to Aveton Cottage and it still takes our breath away. From the location, to the high end furnishings, everything feels perfect. Then you step into the pool complex, wow. We loved sitting on the benches outside with a drink, reading a book and looking out over the fields. Kings bridge is nearby with market, all sorts of shops and a small cinema. A really peaceful break, a chance to switch off and recharge. I could live here, easily!

We had a lovely stay and we looking forward to returning again! The owner takes care of the property well and communicates well.

Absolutely loved our stay at Aveton Cottage. Four ladies in our 50’s with our sewing machines and had a stitch and swim weekend. Fantastic location and lovely owner. Everything was immaculate. Well thought out spaces. Modern high spec kitchen. Cosy underfloor heating. Private pool with night lighting. Ample supplies of tea bags sugar and staples, loo rolls, hand soap at every sink including the poolside ones, laundry detergent and towels etc etc. Already booked next year.

Aveton Cottage far exceeded our expectations. The booking process was easy with great communication from both Classic Cottages and the host, Helen. It was hard to picture the accommodation beforehand, but the cottage and the location were perfect; tranquil and private but with easy access to a beautiful riverside walk, or with a short drive, the nearest town or coastal walks. Everything we needed was there. And more. We loved lying in bed listening to the owls, but otherwise there was no noise. It was a real treat to have all the facilities to ourselves. We'd like to keep this place a secret but have already recommended it to several friends! This is definitely on our 'places to return to' list. Thank you to Helen at Aveton and to Classic Cottages for helping us find it.

Aveton Cottage exceeded all expectations! It was not only beautiful, cosy and comfortable but it was private and secure which was just what we were looking for. The owners did a great job of making us feel at home even though we didn’t see them. The instructions and the cake and all the little touches were greatly appreciated. It was an amazing stay, we really cannot fault it at all! Thank you all so much. Exclusive access to the pool was our favourite feature. Having that complete privacy was just perfect and made it so much more comfortable and enjoyable! the games room was great fun and the cottage itself was spectacular. Loved having use of the washer and dryer especially since we used the pool a lot and visited the nearby beaches. Honestly it was amazing. Everything was thought out and convenient. Best holiday ever. Thank you again!

This is an absolutely awesome property that is wonderfully maintained and spotlessly clean. We have returned many times and will continue to do so.

What a fabulous cottage with just the best facilities. Having sole use of the swimming pool/games room/gym was just fabulous. A real home from home with everything well thought out and catered for.

We love this house because of the amazing pool and facilities that come with it. We really appreciate that the owners are thoughtful about their guests privacy and that the pool is not shared. We also love the thought that obviously goes into making everything so convenient for guests by providing hand wash, dishwasher tablet etc it definitely doesn’t go unnoticed the extras they provide.

Extremely well appointed accommodation in the cottage both in the lounge/kitchen area and in the bedrooms. The Annexe was a benefit as well, especially the wet room. Swimming pool, games room and the gym absolutely excellent, especially on rainy days. The peacefulness of the setting and the extensive grounds to use and walk around, especially for young children, made for a very relaxing week. I can appreciate why people keep coming back.

This was our second visit to Aveton cottage abd we cannot recommend it more highly- immaculately clean, extremely comfortable and very well resourced The pool is just amazing So much thought has been put into making it a home from home

All the beds were very comfy. Bedrooms spacious with their own on suites. Lovely open plan living room, dining area and kitchen with all the utensils we needed and quality appliances. We just loved everything about Aveton Cottage. The isolation, it was so quiet at night. The property was very well presented. Spacious with quality fittings and appliances. The large heated indoor swimming pool was brilliant and was for our group’s sole use. The games room and the gym were also an added bonus. Great location too for Kingsbridge and Salcombe beaches. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage. It sells itself.

Aveton is lovely with everything you would need and more. I brought tea towels washing pods, tea and coffee, torches etc but no need it is all provided. Packing will be so much easier next time! The pool is fabulous, the views from the gym/sun room are lovely and the games room is great fun and is complete with radio. Did I mention the peace and quiet? It’s perfect, we can’t wait to return. Thank you.

What a wonderful property. We could not fault it in anyway. Had a blissful week. Facilities were perfect from pool, games room, crockery, kitchen appliances, beds were so comfortable with luxurious quilt and pillows. I would recommend this stunning property to all.

Thank you for your wonderful review. It is great to read that you found Aveton cottage to be a real gem. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Sarah, Customer Support

Luxurious cottage with superb facilities including use of a private pool which my boys (ages 7 & 9) absolutely loved. Consistent water depth of 1.2 M so no concerns. Beautiful peaceful grounds & lots of great days out nearby including a selection of lovely beaches, Pennywell Farm, Crealy Theme Park, Dartmouth, Salcombe, Wembury (fantastic horse riding school) and many more ... we’d love to return one day - we all thoroughly enjoyed our week away ... thank you Helen & Classic Cottages ??

Our stay at Aveton was wonderful, the property far exceeded our expectations - the photos really do not do it justice. The pool was bigger than it appears online and the whole pool/games room/gym complex was fantastic and well equipped. The owner Helen was really helpful on the occasions when I needed to contact her. The property has solar panels and environmentally friendly cleaning products and encourages recycling and food waste composting which is great and unusual in rental properties.

We stayed with friends to celebrate my 75th Birthday and had an excellent short break. The cottage is bigger than it looks in the pictures and was very comfortable but the main attraction was the pool and games room which provided hours of fun. So special to have it all to ourselves. Many thanks to the owner for all the little extras. We have been using Classic Cottages for many years and we are never disappointed but this was extra special. Can recommend Avon Mill Garden Centre for excellent lunches, cakes etc plus of course plants and gifts.

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday from the Classic team - and what a wonderful place to celebrate it! Tanya, Customer Support

4th visit - speaks for itself!

A wonderful cottage nothing was less than perfect, extra touch's a massive bowl of fruit and scrummy cake!

Exclusive use of the pool was a real draw. Bedrooms really comfortable. Excellent location; chilli farm just around the corner was great, with fab free tour, Greenway National Trust property close by and definitely worth a visit.

Practically perfect.

Averton Cottage is a truly amazing place to stay set in lovely quiet country side with wonderful views.

A wonderful cottage. Superbly equiped with everything you could need. A large bowl of fruit and cake on our arrival, so very thoughtful and generous. Holly the housekeeper and Helen the owner are so lovely and extremely helpful and kind. The exclusive use of the pool and games room is such a bonus. And a beautiful bluebell(May) wood a few minutes walk from the cottage. We hope to return and we would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

This was our second visit to the cottage and it was as good as the first visit(2018)! Our children enjoyed the sole use of the swimming pool and the games room. We love the privacy and the peaceful surrounding. The owner and the housekeeper were very warm and friendly, they made us feel very welcome. The cottage and its facilities are in prime condition. We have been to various cottage stays but Aveton is at the top of our list. Thank you once again for making our stay wonderful and memorable.

Aveton is the most wonderful place. Holly and Helen make us very welcome every time we return. The place is fantastic with gorgeous views. Looking forward to our next visit.

Helen and Holly make us so welcome every time we come. This is now like our second home. Just perfect.

Can,t wait to visit again

Our return to heaven was just paradise. We had an amazing stay and you just cannot get better than the exclusive use of the facilities that are so luxury. The kitchen is so well equipped, the location is prime. This is a fantastic cottage with high standard everything. Thank you so much again for your generous hospitality and a wonderful holiday

The owner was very accommodating and our children really enjoyed the swimming pool and games room. We are looking forward to coming again.

This cottage was just as fantastic in our second stay and I could happily move in and never leave! Very luxurious feel and well furnished with everything you need. Sole use of the magnificent pool is the main attraction for me. We will be back.

We have had a holiday that was out of this world! It was perfect like heaven! Exclusive use of a pool gym and games room was the ultimate highlight! The rural secluded setting was perfect and so beutiful!! The privacy was exclusive! We had a massive warm welcome from holly that was so warming, the facilities were prestine it was home from home and we have theee children three and under and it was so baby friendly!

We never go to the same place twice but we have already made a further

We want to say a Massive thank you to the owners who put out Interests as priority over their business which is often rare today ans their generosity and kindness allowed us to have an amazing family holiday!!!!

The most wonderful holiday location with awesome facilities, views and fantastic walks. A superb base to explore from

Every little detail has been thought about by the owners and it makes your holiday at Aveton Cottage so relaxing. The facilities are wonderful in the cottage as well as the pool and games room, and the surrounding countryside is very peaceful. A perfect getaway!

The sole use of the large indoor pool, games room and gym are excellent. The cottage is located in a lovely, quiet position and the wildlife and countryside views are stunning.

3rd visit to this super cottage. Facilities very comprehensive. Really appreciate sole use of swimming pool and level of privacy in general. Lovely Housekeeper went out of her way to help when needed. Likewise owner and husband very accommodating.

Really loved this cottage very private and spacious and would love to stay again, facilities were superb and owner was very friendly and thoughtful with personal touches you would not expect such as fruit a homemade cake and flowers and everything was very high quality. Would definitely recommend this property.

Delightful cottage with fantastic facilities and all the comforts of home. Exclusive use of the indoor pool, Gym and games room certainly adds a level of luxury and that special holiday feeling to help you relax.

We were so pleased on arrival to see this beautiful cottage that exceeded all expectations. Could not stop smiling through my first swim! We didn't do any sightseeing, no point. We just stayed and relaxed. Will definitely go back.

Lovely property with excellent facilities. Great baby proofing and equipment. Perfect break.

A very warm welcoming and fully equipped cottage set in a delightful setting. One of Devon's hidden gems.

Excellent cottage to a very high standard, everything was there and available in a perfect location, will be certainly visiting again in the future. Lots to do around the area for all ages and the pool was a great bonus.

Aveton cottage is gorgeous, the owners are so generous allowing exclusive access to the facilities, and this makes staying here such a relaxing break. Lovely and quiet.

The reception was seamless and friendly even though we were slightly early and immediately made us feel at ease.

My holiday at Averton Cottage was extremely good. We were met by the owner who made us very welcome - the tea and Carrot cake was most appreciated. The cottage itself could not have been better - the games room, gym and swimming pool were also most excellent. The location was superb. This is the first holiday we have ever had where the reality exceeded all expectation and was even better than the brochure!!! We shall be using Classic Cottages again and hope to return to Averton Cottage very soon. Thank you.

Second visit and hope there will be many more. Owners incessantly seek to please their visitors and do a fabulous job. Thank you for sole use of the facilities. Wouldn't enjoy half as much if they were shared!

We keep coming back. There is nothing to match the hospitality, welcome and location as Aveton Cottage

Very peaceful and relaxing winter short break. The weather was stunning and we enjoyed the country walks across the owners' farmland and along the river. Aveton Cottage was warm, snug and well equipped. We loved swimming in the pool every day and using the gym with its big south facing window allowing the sun to flood in. The cottage is situated in a very central location for exploring South Devon.

Aveton Farm Cottage was offered at short notice to us. From the web site details it appeared ideal in meeting the needs of my family members who have learning difficulties. The layout of the cottage allowed discreet supervision and oversight which combined with the possibility of flexible accommodation enabled me as a carer some quiet 'down time' also.The pool and games area was superb. The cottage location ensured we were only a short drive from many varied local facilities and landscapes/seascapes.We are very keen to book again.

Aveton is the nicest cottage I have stayed in in England, evidenced by returning 4 times. It is the perfect place to relax, with good facilities for when you feel energetic and beautiful walks right from the front door.

Our experience at Aveton cottage is unsurpassed. We know of no other venue which matches the friendliness and standards.

Fabulous, well equiped property. Incredible swimming pool. Definitely want to return, great base to explore from. Massive plus having sole use of facilities.

I highly recommend Aveton cottage. The cottage was immaculate very pretty and had stunning views. The swimming pool was huge and warm. Lovely games room and gym. Cottage was in a rural quiet location very nice relaxing holiday with all mod cons. Will love to visit again

If you come to Aveton, you will want to come again and again!
