Laurel Cottage is a truly lovely place to stay. Very clean and comfortable, with welcoming hosts and lots of thoughtful extras, such as local maps and walking guides and books on the local history. Kingston village is a pretty, friendly place and there are lots of lovely walks to do straight from the cottage.
Miss Elliott May 2022
Two words - STAY HERE !!!
Mr Biggs May 2022
A very well appointed and characterful cottage. Set in a great location for exploring both the SW Coastal Path and Dartmoor.
Mrs Bert April 2022
We have just returned home from a wonderful week enjoying Laurel Cottage and attractions nearby. We had everything we needed and it was an incredibly comfortable stay. As a young family with a baby and dog, we liked that there was plenty of space in the garden to relax if a break from driving was needed. Thank you for the hospitality received from the hosts - it certainly is a peaceful spot to enjoy South Devon from.
Mrs Rossington April 2022
Laurel Cottage is very comfortable, well decorated, very clean. Some lovely additional touches such as home made savoury nibbles, dog treats, fresh flowers. Suzannah and Alan were very welcoming and helpful. Beautiful fully enclosed garden and paddocks for our dog Evie to play safely in.
We visited Bigbury on sea, Burgh Island, Kingsbridge and Plymouth as well as the close by Wonwell Beach.
Very peaceful location just be aware that as with a lot of Devon roads there are some extremely narrow roads to get around.
Mr Flanagan March 2022

A perfect time at Laurel Cottage. It’s beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Exceptionally well equipped with extra touches such as fresh flowers and lovely nibbles on arrival. It is in walking distance to a really beautiful beach. There was plenty of information on things to do and how to get there, together with an excellent supply of novels, recent magazines and games for families to play.
Mrs Bicknell September 2021

Would love to come back again.
Mrs Ford August 2021
This was our second stay at Laurel Cottage as we had such a fabulous time last year. The cottage is tucked away with plenty of privacy and space for the children and dog to run. It's spacious and clean and incredibly comfortable. Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Dartmouth are all beautiful places close by to visit for a day trip. Gorgeous holiday cottage and location.

A beautifully appointed cottage in a very peaceful location.
Mr Horvath July 2021
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage. It was well equipped, exceptionally clean and very comfortable. Our hosts, Suzannah and Alan were so helpful, directing us to the best places, and making sure we had everything we needed. The little extras like the lovely gluten free cake, milk, tea and coffee on arrival, were very much appreciated. The cottage is located in a beautiful area, with fantastic beaches virtually on the doorstep, the countryside is lovely and the coastal walks are magnificent. We intend to return to Laurel Cottage and thank you to Alan and Suzannah for our lovely stay.
Mrs Reynolds June 2021
Excellent hosts so helpful
Mr Cooper May 2021
Laurel Cottage is delightful; set in a peaceful secluded location with a myriad of visiting wildlife within the grounds, the house is comfortable and well equipped. Alan and Suzannah are very hospitable and friendly and provided some thoughtful touches to make visitors feel welcome. There are two terraces and a good enclosed garden at the property, ideal if you have children or a dog. It is well located for exploring several villages, towns and beaches within a 20 mile radius. Our particular favourites were Salcome (although parking can be difficult) and Bigbury on Sea - the gateway to Burgh Island. We visited on a short break and despite the mixed weather we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Laurel Cottage.
Mrs Cope May 2021
The garden and area just what was needed after such a difficult year. The quietness and beautiful hedgerows made for a delightful stay. A very well equipped cottage with quality appliances and very comfortable beds. Bed linen and towels were excellent and the cottage was very clean.
Mr Peach October 2020
Beautiful, well furnished and equiped quaint cottage, in a quiet location. The back garden was perfect for our dog as it was completely fenced off and there are extensive paddocks beyond it. Our hosts couldn't have been kinder or more helpful to us.
Mr Mellor-Clark August 2020
Suzanne and Alan were genuinely warm and welcoming hosts at a (Covid) time when warmth and welcome would be easy to avoid. Nothing was ever too much trouble and the little touches in the cottage (e.g. welcome taps, temperature scanner, fresh flowers twice weekly, local advice and genuine concern for our safety) all made the ordinary - extraordinary. I'd have no hesitation in recommending the cottage and the area to anyone looking for a comfortable, quite getaway cottage for walks and relaxation.
Mrs Ford August 2020
A beautiful, quiet, modern cottage tucked away in the magical lanes of south Devon. We were lucky with the weather but we could have been in the south of France! We want to visit again!
Mrs Smith July 2020
Suzzanah and Alan were really welcoming and helpful regarding local information - nice to have them next door even though the cottage felt very private and peaceful. The cottage was immaculately furnished and surrounding countryside and coast were beautiful.
Mrs Chapman September 2019
Very comfortable cottage. Nice to be able to let our dog wander in the garden without keeping an eye on her
Mrs Rush September 2019
Laurel Cottage is perfect in everyway. The decor and the furniture are of a very high standard . Everything has been thought of for a comfortable stay. The outside space is excellent. The location is very good and it’s proximity to Wonwell Beach for our labrador was just great. We couldn’t fault the cottage in any way - it was a real home from home.
Mrs Howard August 2019

All the equipment was of a high standard and the beds were excellent quality. There were many instances of thoughtful additions to make the cottage homely.

Miss Stewart May 2018
Laurel cottage is immaculate, well furnished and comfortable with lots of lovely touches. The outdoor seating areas are sheltered, the grounds are pretty and relaxing. There are not a lot of formal attractions nearby, but as a location to just stop and take out your batteries, it is excellent. The cottage felt very private, and we would definitely consider a return visit.

Mr Slim October 2017
We have just spent a very happy week in Laurel Cottage, South Devon. In spite of some inclement weather out little dog Rosie enjoyed her very first holiday with us. The cottage was absolutely first class with a dog-proof garden. We could not have asked for more as the local pubs all served delicious meals.
