A lovely old cottage in beautiful surroundings. I’m the countryside yet close to local towns, Dartmoor, and the gorgeous Devon coast.

Fabulous, rustic cottage with great walks nearby. One of the most comfortable beds we ever slept in! Place and the host were just perfect.

We had the most wonderful holiday and are incredibly grateful - it was clear that absolutely every care had been taken to make sure we'd have everything we needed and it was really lovely. BBQs, a spare fridge, lamps, DVDs, so many thoughtful details. The houses were so comfortable and lovely to be in and the garden was just amazing. The hosts were so thoughtful, and your company is extremely helpful and easy to get hold of. We've already recommended it to friends and will definitely stay again. Thank you all - it was a really fantastic holiday.

Couldnt have had kinder and more helpful hosts.

Wet lovely cottage, rural location but perfect for getting about up and down the coast

A great property, very well appointed, very spacious in a beautiful setting. The host were very helpful and amenable- they seem to have thought of everything. We will definitely stay again!

So peaceful, lots of room, liked the dining room being separate, layout was lovely and plenty of space. The garden was lovely to sit out in, the owners were really nice and helpful. Plenty of parking. We had a brilliant holiday, the children loved it.

A warm and comfortable cottage, with friendly hosts. A good location for a range of different activities. A lovely cream tea on our arrival, following a stressful Covid avoiding, wet journey.

A perfect location on the edge of Dartmoor with very comfortable accommodation. We found it so peaceful and relaxing. It is far enough away from the main roads to be silent. A good base for walks on Dartmoor as well as around or from the farm and trips to the coast.Lovely welcome with cream tea. Hostess lives next door, and was very friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive. She recommended walks and maps for local sites.

Lovely cottage, very spacious. Beautiful surroundings, hosts were very welcoming and approachable. Another fabulous holiday booked through Classic Cottages

Friendly welcome, cream tea on arrival, plenty of space and peace and quiet. A lovely location for our family Holiday and exactly as described. Thank you!

Lovely welcoming cottage, very peaceful and a great location for the moors and the coast is not too far away.
Would highly recommend.

The cob is a beautiful restored barn, with a magnificent landscape and garden. We really loved the beautiful alpacas, rabbits, pheasants and birds. Very peaceful and relaxing environment, with plenty of outdoor space to enjoy.

Cob cottage exceeded our expectations! It was the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We will definitely be going back to stay next year. Thank you

What a lovely, beautiful and peaceful place to stay. Ellena and Robin gave us a warm welcome and were very helpful. Everything is lovingly designed, what made us feel very lucky. It is a nice place for holidays in this area and we would love to have a further stay there.

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location - very clean and comfortable

It was brilliant

Lovely place with friendly landlords perfect for a quite vacation. If you don't mind driving a bit, there is lot's to see in the area - Canonteign Falls is nearby and a lovely place to visit.

A big thanks to Elena for a lovely stay and a warm welcome - cream tea was lovely too. Cottage was great, was a good size for us (6 adults and one child) and the very pretty grounds were a pleasure to wander round and immaculately kept. The use of the extra fridge freezers in the laundry room was a massive help to us in preparation for our daughters wedding. Would definitely stay in the cottages again if we in the area.

Lovely cottage and a nice home away from home. Good location for many activities, towns to visit and good pubs and restaurants. The owners are lovely and very helpful. Ideal place to really relax and unwind.

Nice cream tea on arrival, friendly owners, quiet location, best 'house guide' we've ever seen in a cottage, good freezer capacity in barn, well-organised recycling

Great location for families. Children can play and adults can relax.

We had a very nice time in The Cob, it's a very comfortable en cosy house to stay in. Everything you might need is available. Really good beds. A very friendly and tasty welcome: there was a cream tea waiting for us in the diningroom. Really nice owners, we want to thank them again for their hospitality! They have a great place in Theign Valley! Family Pelders, Holland

We were welcomed warmly and cleanliness is top of the class. Had a great time and kids loved the fields around the cottage. Will visit again in future.

Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings cut off from the hustle bustle ! Mr and Mrs Jamie are very kind and helpful owners and made us feel very welcome.

Owners Robin and Ellenor were very welcoming. We stayed in The Cob which was a lovely barn conversion in a most beautiful setting.

The cottage is extremely peaceful with a beautiful garden and plenty of space. It is easily accessible from the A38 and has a nice pub (Palk Arms) a 20 minute walk up the lane. The cottage is near splendid walking on Dartmoor and the coast is a short drive away.

Our group of ten stayed at both the Cobb and the Forge for seven nights. Both were very nice and provided everything we needed. We prepared breakfast and dinner for all of us in the Cobb on a few occasions and found everything we needed and were even able to seat all in the dining room. We enjoyed a nice fire with the firewood and fire starters provided.

The location was close to main roads and with 2 or 3 cars we took trips each day. We explored Widecomb in the Moor, Haytor Vale, Mortenhamstead, Lydford gorge, Exeter, Dartmouth, Plymouth, and more. The town of chudleigh was close and had a few good grocery stores. The Phoenix was a good place for wifi. I would highly recommend Leigh farm. It was an excellent vacation and a great value.

This is such a stunning property and location, well worth the money.

The Cob is a lovely cottage in a stunning location. Whilst tucked away on the edge of Dartmoor, the Cob gives easy access to lots of places - Dartmoor and the South Devon Coast. I cannot recommend it enough - a really lovely place to stay.

This property is in an idillic situation for peace and rest but does not equate to a `Four Star' rating which it could easily recieve if utensils and certain furnishings and white goods were upgraded. There were seven of us self catering and the kitchen utensils were inadequate. We are experienced in self catering holidays over fifty years.

The Cob proved to be an ideal base to explore the Dartmoor and South Devon. The cottage was fantastic and set in the beautiful surroundings of the Teign Valley.

We would highly recommend The Cob to anyone looking for a quiet very comfortable holiday.
