Great place to stay in a tucked away location. Cottage was warm & comfortable and great for a relaxing break.

The cottage is even more beautiful in real life. I could easily live there! The owner is so kind and generous and she makes you feel so very welcome and cared for which was so unexpected but much appreciated!

We had a lovely stay at Medlar Cottage - a home from home. The cottage was warm, comfortable and spacious yet cosy. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back!

With a meticulous eye for detail, Medlar Cottage is immaculately kept: very well-equipped, and stylishly appointed yet extremely comfortable. Set in lovely rural surroundings, it is only a 5' drive from the beautiful Town of Tavistock. Annie , the charming Owner, is unobtrusive but always on hand to help you with anything, and it was a real pleasure meeting her lovely family including the adorable Nelson (Labrador!) who we rather miss. The Cottage is ideally placed to easily explore all of Devon AND Cornwall, and benefits from good parking too! We enjoyed a very relaxing week at 'Medlar' and are only sorry that we could not stay longer. So thank you so much Annie and we hope that we meet again. Best wishes, Tony and Judith from Liverpool.

Medlar cottage is stunning, the decor is cosy and tasteful and the whole place is full of character. Everything is very comfortable and convenient. We received a warm welcome and were encouraged to ask if we needed anything. Thank you. X

Fantastic cottage, lovely location, and the most wonderful warm welcome from the owner Annie and her family.

Lovely cottage in a wonderful location - idyllic! Have stayed here before and very happy to return - we'll be back again!

Lovely cottage near to Tavistock with all year creature comforts. Very quiet. Fantastic location for trips out.

The BEST cottage we've stayed in, in the UK! Set in beautiful, peaceful Devon countryside yet near to lots of activities and the eclectic shopping of Tavistock. You will not be disappointed if you stay at Medlar Cottage.

Beautiful cottage in a great location close to Tavistock/ farmers market and stunning walks across Dartmoor. Fully equipped with everything you might need for the week.

Annie met us with a lovely welcome basket and was extremely accommodating during our stay. Lovely lady and a very nice break away from it all. We'll be back again.

This cottage is one of the best we have stayed in. Annie the owner was really friendly and happy to help with anything we required. The welcome basket was packed full of all the essentials needed when arriving and even a little something for the dogs Foxy Lady, Frank and Miss Wilson which is a nice little touch. A great place to stay for a relaxing holiday.

A beautifully presented cottage with all your normal home comforts. The hostess supplies a lovely welcome basket, and is extremely friendly and helpful. Very dog friendly.

Medlar Cottage offered a perfect short break. The cottage was perfectly furnished, we had a warm welcome on arrival and I couldn't think of anything that would have improved our stay. We will definately be returning.

We have just had the most peaceful , comfortable short break at Medlar Cottage . The accommodation suited ourselves and my ( agile ) 87 year old Mum , enough space , whilst being very cosy . Furnished and decorated to a high standard , and a well equipped kitchen ( being Very picky , the only thing missing was a tea cosy !) The owner is delightful and nothing is too much trouble . We would definitely stay here again and recommend others to do so

Thanks so much for your review. We were delighted that you had such an enjoyable stay and would return - sorry to hear that you couldn't find the tea cosy, but the Owner has confirmed it's definitely available in the cottage, so you can look forward to taking your time over a pot of tea next visit!

We were looking for an above average home with two double bedrooms, two bathrooms and dog friendly. We also wanted a peacful location near Tavistock.

We had a lovely stay at Medler Cottage and found the attention to detail given to be excellent. The cottage is perfectly located and we would highly recommend a stay here. Absolutely lovely!
