Great location, very quiet and peaceful with great walks and access to the moors,also very close to the town and supermarkets. A beamed cottage but with full height ceilings..all the charm without the bruises. Really comfortable beds too.

Disappointing, nice conversion let down by little or no WiFi, somewhat dark and cold inside and a need of some basic maintenance.

Thanks so much for your review. We're sorry you had problems with the WiFi. We know that the owner spent time with you early in your stay trying to address the interrupted signal (this was an unintentional result of trying to boost the signal in the owners' house which somehow affected the cottage) - they'd understood when they saw you the next day that all was well, and hadn't realised that you'd had further difficulties. Equally, the owners would happily have adjusted the heating or shown you how to shut the two roof light windows that were open if you'd mentioned you were chilly. All has now been rectified, so thanks for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Support

We loved our stay at Giles Cottage with the Annexe too.

An out of the way location peace and tranquillity ( no Wi-Fi or Mobile signal really which suited us) a totally superb Cottage with everything one needs and more, even a beautiful piano!

Lovely rooms, decor and wood burner and a spacious cottage kitchen and utility to satisfy all our needs. Lovely spot by the river and easy walks to great places and only 5 min drive to Tavistock. wonderful market, cafes, restaurants and pubs ... and fantastic scenery and walks, rivers and waterfalls. Loved every minute at Giles Cottage already booking more stays 2017 and 2018. Annabel the owner and her family were wonderful and very helpful indeed.

We had a ball. We had lots of friends and family visit and some stay. it was excellent.

We're delighted to hear that you had such a great stay. Broadband is available at the cottage (a basic level for web browsing and emails etc, not superfast, and strongest signal in the sitting-room) but there was a little blip with the system which has now been resolved. The wonderful rural location does mean that mobile signal is limited in this area generally. Do check your network provider's coverage map if this is especially important, and of course the owners are also on hand if there is a problem. Tanya, Customer Support
