Beautiful cottage in an amazing location. Easily the best cottage we've ever stayed in. So tastefully furnished and fabulous attention to detail. Andrew and Mandy were lovely and it was really interesting to hear about their vision for the farm and to get a guided tour. The location was stunning. Breathtaking views across the Exe valley and plenty of outside space to explore with lots of wildlife to see. A central location and so easy to explore both the North and South Devon coast. Definitely somewhere we'd return to.

A superb setting for those who want to get away from it all! Lovely woodland and riverside walks on your doorstep. Very well equipped and comfortable cottage.
Mrs Prescott October 2018
We loved the location and the property was absolutely perfect. There were so many extra touches, a lot of thought and love has gone into creating this home from home and the welcome goodies were much appreciated. The owners were welcoming, friendly but not intrusive. A beautiful cottage in a lovely area. We will definitely return.
Mrs Borrows September 2018

This was a great choice and we enjoyed our time at Backswood Cottage. The comfort level and attention to detail were first class. Everything supplied to support the stay had been thought through and we were impressed with the quality of the decor and amenities and the care and attention given.
Mrs Handscomb May 2018
What a wonderful cottage. Beautifully appointed with love, care and attention to detail. It was so peaceful and looking out over valley with the gentle bleating of the lambs was truly idyllic. We had the most wonderful break and already planning our return visit.
Mr Thompson April 2018
Immaculate, cosy and well furnished cottage, perfect for our weekend away. The views from the bedrooms over the valley are just stunning!
Mrs Slade March 2018
This has been THE nicest Classic Cottage property we've stayed in and one of the best of any company we've used. Decor and furniture exceptionally comfortable and tastefully done. Amazing views and beautifully quiet. Would love to return. Thank you to CC and the owners.
Mrs Hayward February 2018
Five star accommodation with all home comforts and more, stunning views and lots to do both nearby and further afield . The bottle of prosecco, flowers and cookies were a lovely touch and the hosts were delightful and very helpful.
Mrs Gardiner December 2017
Everything was in place for us to enjoy our Christmas stay including the trimmings. The quality of finish in the property was superb. The bathrooms were top notch as was the comfortable lounge with log fire. Faultless & will definitely return.
Mrs Murphy November 2017
My daughter and I had a very relaxing stay at Backswood Cottage. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The cottage is very comfortable indeed with good quality furnishings and equipment and really lovely bathrooms. The views from the downstairs bedroom are exceptional. Would definately return.
Mrs Adams August 2017
This property is amazing. We were unsure that the property seemed to overlook an unfinished area (the shot of the picnic table), but upon arrival found this was just an area of the farmland that's beeing prepped for a wild meadow! The cottage is absolutely perfect - you still feel in the middle of the countryside, but it's very convenient for travel and amenities. We can't fault the quality and comfort. You want to feel at home, but at the same time you want it to be so much nicer than just a standard home, - treat for a well-earned break - and that's what this does. It was comfortable and we were left alone by the owners, although they were on hand most of the time. The view from the balcony was spectacular. The rooms were spacious and suited us very nicely, and the occasional deer and rabbit spotting was great. We really can't fault it.
