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.

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.

Mrs Pereira May 2018
Fabulous cottage in peaceful idyllic setting. Great secure garden for our dog. Close to lovely beaches, pretty lanes and interesting villages and pubs. Overall a wonderful base to explore the South Hams.
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.

This is a lovely barn conversion within easy reach of great beaches, which were ideal for children and a dog! A great place to relax and spend time as a family!
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.

We have really enjoyed our holiday at Laurel Cottage! The cottage is brand new and lovely decorated, situated in a very peaceful place surrounded by fields with horses and cows.
