We have had a perfect family holiday in Eeyore's Cottage. Returning home with so many happy memories and so many delightful photos is a testament to the charm of the cottage and the beauty of the area. From the moment we walked into the house, we felt at home. Not only is everything spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable but there are also so many pretty and thoughtful touches in every room: flowers on the table, tasteful ornaments and pictures, a box of snuggly blankets, a huge selection of books and DVDs, beach equipment...and more.
A huge thank-you to the whole team!

Eeyore's Cottage is a lovely holiday property in a delightful location that is quiet and peaceful but only a 10 minute drive from Dartmouth and all it has to offer. The walk to the beach is idyllic and there are excellent facilities once there. We would recommend this property to our friends.
Mr Howard October 2017
The property was lovely and in a great location. The roads in and out of the property are very tight but that is characteristic of the area and adds to the cosy feel of the cottage and the valley in which it sits.

The perfect hideaway for a sunny October break...
If you don't mind driving down the narrow country lanes (which, luckily, I didn't), you will find this little gem of a cottage, tucked under the trees by a small brook, just a 5-minute meander from some of the best beaches that South Hams has to offer.
As a couple, staying in a 3-bed cottage with 3 bathrooms, we each had our own bathroom (which was a nice treat)... The beds were very comfortable (one previous young visitor has described them as 'sleeping on a cloud', which I'd have to agree with!). And the underfloor heating in the kitchen always brought a smile after a long day spent walking the coastal path...
Cleverly equipped, beautifully decorated, and conveniently located for exploring the wonder that is South Hams, Eeyore's Cottage was just perfect for us.

Eeyore's Cottage is very special. It is immaculately clean and thoughtfully decorated, comfortable and with lots of special touches that make even a rainy day comfortable. We had a wonderful stay there and it set the bar very high for other accommodation in the future.
Mrs Brasher June 2017
Beautiful cottage incredibly comfortable and well equipped would recommend to anyone. Lovely walk down to Blackpool sands beach.
Mrs Jinks June 2017
It's a fabulous cottage in a lovely location. The weather was hot but the cottage was lovely and cool!
Mr Ellis June 2017
Beautiful and well equipped cottage. Quiet location, only a 15 minute walk from the lovely Blackpool Sands beach.

This was the first Xmas we have been away as a family for a while and ticked all the boxes. The property had been decorated for us including decorations and Xmas crackers etc. Very well provisioned for a family that likes to cook, great walks. Excellent local Pub. Recommendation for future visitors do not follow the SatNav follow main road from Dartmouth. We would definitely consider staying here again.
Mrs Yates October 2016
An absolutely beautiful cottage. Our favourite to date. Very well situated for Dartmouth, Totnes, Salcombe and the coast.
Mrs Partridge September 2016
It is so quiet at night that as a Londoner it hurts your ears. Please do not misunderstand this is not a criticism.
Mrs Gayton September 2016
Lovely quiet spot, walking distance to the beach & short distance to supermarkets, pub.
Good location for all sorts of day trips.
If you've forgotten what it's like to be pleasantly tired and sleep really well then this is the place for you. My 3 year old spent an hour on the journey home demanding we go back to 'his cottage'
Mrs Salter August 2016
Secluded location some distance from pubs, facilities. Not a comfortable cottage for active children. Lack of mobile reception and no land line make it a nerving place should anything happen or if family members need to contact you. Bedrooms have inadequate storage space, nothing at all in children's twin room. Looks like a show home but really not practical for self catering young family.

Thank you for your comments - the property is beautifully situated in rural Devon so perfect for getting away from it all, yet close to lovely family friendly beaches and vibrant Dartmouth just a short drive away. There is an incoming telephone line if family need to get in touch, and WiFi is also provided. Sorry that it didn't suit your particular party, but we hope you enjoyed your trip to Devon.

Nice cottage overall if a little dark . It is not 1/3 of a mile from the beach as the sign showing Blackpool sands is 1/2 a mile from the cottage. Good coastal walks and Blackpool sand is very nice. Beware the parking at Blackpool sands starts a £7 a day .

Thanks for your review of Eeyore's Cottage. The cottage is described as a 15 minute walk from Blackpool Sands - we're glad you enjoyed it when you arrived. Tanya, Customer Support

This is a charming cottage in a lovely location - and the Christopher Robin connection makes it a wonderful place to stay.
Mrs Stares December 2015
It was lovely to arrive and find that such a lot of effort had been put in to making the cottage "Christmasy". The little touches ( crackers, wine, biscuits and decorations) were very much appreciated. The cottage was very well appointed and even cooking Christmas dinner in a strange kitchen was easy as there was a good range of kitchenware. The rooms were very comfortable and we loved the decor. We all had a great time and will look back on our first Christmas away with happy memories.
Mr Fisher November 2015
Eeyore's cottage is beautiful, spotlessly clean, exquisitely furnished and equipped with anything you could possibly need. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the furniture, accessories and fixtures. Everything looked lovely and worked properly. The extra touches of games and books for the children and a good selection of books and DVDs for the adults were much appreciated.
Mrs Russell-Thomas October 2015
Gorgeous property, time for space, to stop and to unwind perfect.
Mr Walker September 2015
Best cottage we have ever stayed in - perfect!
Mr Reid September 2015
Eeyore's Cottage was an absolute delight and lived up to the photographs and expectation. The decoration is beautiful and every detail has been carefully thought out by the owners. I just wish it was my house!
Mrs Clark August 2015
This has been by far the best cottage we have ever stayed at. The decor, layout and contents have been so well thought out it would appeal to young and old alike. If you forget to bring something, be sure to know it will be there waiting for you. The cleanliness was impeccable too. It was just a 20 minute walk to Blackpool Sands beach which was beautiful, although there's no sand sadly as it is a shingle beach, but the views, cafe and shop certainly make up for it. No dogs are allowed so it is spotless. Dartmouth is a short drive which has got a beautiful harbour and the Round Robin trip - boat, bus & steam train is definitely one do to. Agatha Christie's house is a short drive away. All highly recommended. The cottage and location made for a perfect holiday.
Mr Forrester July 2015
A beautifully-appointed cottage in which all of the 'little things' have been thoughtfully considered: less a holiday cottage, more a "home-from-home". Really refreshing to see.
