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 ??

July 2020

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.

January 2020

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.

4th visit - speaks for itself!

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

August 2019

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.

June 2019

Practically perfect.

June 2019

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

May 2019

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.

April 2019

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.

November 2018

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.

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!

July 2017

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.

June 2017

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.

June 2017

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.

September 2016

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.

February 2016

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.

January 2016

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.

November 2015

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.

May 2015

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!

February 2015

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

January 2015

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.

December 2014

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.

October 2014

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.

October 2014

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

May 2014

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

November 2013

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

March 2013

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