Drover's cottage was wonderful. One of the cleanest, best equipped and nicely presented cottages we have stayed in. The owners were lovely too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to family and friends.

Lovely cottage. The owners were very friendly and attentitive. They were happy to show our 2 year old around their farm introducing him to the Animals (which he loved).

Would definitely recommend this cottage to others. A very quiet and peaceful setting only 10 min drive from Tavistock.

We spend our vacation in various appartement for almost 20 years. Drovers Cottage was one of the most perfect houses. The old house has been renovated perfectly leaving the character of an old farm house. It was well equipped, the bath, kitchen, windows seemed to be just new. The decoration was nice. And finally the surrounding was very beautifull. The cottage is very calm loctated, surronded by an organic farm, which delivers the landlords eggs, meet, milk, wool etc. A way of living, which is worth to advertise for its own.

We thank family Driscoll a lot for the beautifull spend holidays.

Great location, very peaceful. Handy for Tavistock which is only about a 5 min drive and Bere Alston station about 15 mins drive. Very comfortable, wood burner was a god send, property was lovely and warm. My second stay, hoping to be back in summer.

Peaceful and relaxing retreat in a stunning location.

A tucked away cottage in a peaceful setting. The perfect "away from it all," without being isolated. Easy drive to beautiful Dartmoor and surrounding towns for walks and sightseeing. Patrick and Jo are welcoming and informative. I'd definitely stay here again.

Greatly location, very comfortable, very clean, very quiet. Loved it from the moment we arrived. Had already booked another week while we were still there.

June 2017

Drovers Cottage is in a beautifully quiet, secluded location on the edge of the Dartmoor, and only a short drive to Tavistock. Be sure to bring the written instructions provided for finding the cottage lane- GPS will bring you close, but down the road a bit! The cottage was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed our very comfortable beds and spacious bathroom, the well equipped kitchen, and a lovely view of the owner’s sheep-dotted hillside from our bedroom windows. Our hosts were wonderful! They were friendly and helpful, and gave us great advice for exploring the Dartmoor. Fresh eggs from their farm and fresh-picked strawberries from their garden were a delicious bonus. We will definitely stay here again, if we have the good fortune to return to Devon.

Fantastic cottage, brilliant location, peaceful and relaxing

April 2017

We had a lovely stay at Drovers' Cottage. The cottage was very well equipped and very well presented. It was in a beautiful location, wonderful to wake up to views of the farm opposite our windows. The owners were helpful and friendly, and our sons enjoyed the opportunity to visit and help feed the animals. And the fresh eggs were a delightful bonus! Its peaceful location is conveniently only a few miles from Tavistock and Dartmoor. We'd be happy to stay again and would highly recommend to visitors.
