Fabulous cottage in peaceful idyllic setting. Excellent hosts who left us a wonderful Devonshire cream tea for our arrival! 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.

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 owners are very helpful and unobtrusive, the cottage felt very private, and we would definitely consider a return visit.

Thank you so much for sharing your review of Laurel Cottage - we're so pleased that you enjoyed your time there and had the opportunity to recharge your batteries. For any guests who wish to explore the area a little more, we'd recommend the National Trust properties at Coleton Fishacre, Buckland Abbey and Greenway within an hour's drive (dogs welcome in the gardens and grounds), or - a little closer - Overbeck's and Saltram House, both within a half hour.

This is a lovely barn conversion within easy reach of great beaches, which were ideal for children and a dog! Laurel Cottage's owner Cathy was incredibly welcoming, accommodating and seemed to have thought of everything when equipping the kitchen - even providing herbs, so no wasteful trips to the supermarket! A great place to relax and spend time as a family!

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.

Clean and very comfortable with top quality fixtures, fittings and soft furnishings. Beautifully decorated and maintained to a very high standard with exceptional attention to detail. The owners have gone the extra mile and then some. An absolute pleasure to stay in.

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. It is perfect for family with kids and the local beach is just amazing. The owners are great! They provided a warm reception and we were given freshly baked scones by Cathy! We loved it and are hoping to come back again in the future!
