Dairy cottage is immaculate and the owners are very friendly and welcoming. The area is amazing with fantastic walks from the cottage and very close by. The view from the hill opposite is phenomenal. The night sky is amazing with no light pollution. Fantastic place to get away from it all and re-charge.

This property has everything-comfort, a view, seclusion and lovely owners.

Such amazing hosts. Nothing to much trouble. Perfect if you want a really quiet out in the country location. Walks onto the moors from the cottage. Lovely top quality fixtures and fittings. Good quality sprung mattress and fogarty bedding duvets and pillows. So clean and heating works a treat. They even left us milk a cake eggs and fresh bread. Amazing shower and plenty of hot water.

How lovely to be deep in the countryside in such a luxurious cottage. Wonderful walks on the moors followed by a delightfully comfortable night of rest must be the best possible holiday. We would love to welcome you back to Devon soon. Sarah R, Customer Support

This was our second visit to Dairy cottage. An ideal location for local Dartmoor walks, the beautiful autumn weather allowed us to sit outside with a coffee admiring the views. An exceptional clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage perfect to return to after a day out. We are looking to return again in 2023.

Dairy Cottage more than met our expectations. Built, decorated, furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The views were tremendous and the countryside was gorgeous. Nick and Penny were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. A place we are likely to come back to, which is a first for us!

Excellent. Best Cottage website I have come across

Had a really wonderful time walking from and writing at Dairy Cottage. It was a perfect bolthole. Close to the main roads but far enough away to feel in the middle of nowhere. Everything was new, clean and tasteful. The owners were very friendly as were my neighbours in Swallow Cottage. Although the property is semi-detached, you would never know! Wifi and tv reception can be intermittent but these are more than made up for by the comfort and tranquillity. For those seeking peace, wonderful walks on Dartmoor, all the essentials you need and more than a touch of style, this is an absolute treat!

This cottage is as charming as its location. Wonderful.

Dairy Cottage is special because of its setting overlooking fields and out to Dartmoor. Swallows were swooping around the cottage and into barns, all adding to the enjoyment of the surroundings. The cottage itself is comfortably decorated with some unique features and a welcome place either to return to or to spend time relaxing. The owners are very friendly. Transport links are good for travel around South Devon, once you have negotiated the narrow lanes to South Brent from the cottage. All part of the adventure and charm of the location. We really enjoyed our stay here.

The most delightful cottage set in idyllic surroundings. Superbly designed and furnished with everything you could possibly need. Well situated for visiting many NT properties and AONB.

Dairy Cottage is one of the best holiday properties we have stayed in. The owners have been very thoughtful and supplied everything necessary - it was also spotlessly clean. All in all a good venue for a relaxing holiday and a great area for walking and easy access to the A38. Be warned, the road to the property is narrow in places!

We had a fabulous week at Dairy Cottage. It was a great base for exploring South Devon. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. Great views of farm meadows and Dartmoor.

The property was an excellent conversion of a stone farm building. It was cosy and blissfully peaceful. I would certainly consider another stay here in the future.

Very clean and spotless. Size of cottage is very good for 2 people. Well stocked with coffee, tea and sugar to last for your first day, as well as cleaning products even tablets for dishwasher and washing machine. Cottage is the same price no matter what time of year you go. Would definitely stay there again and will recommend this cottage to family and friends.

Helpful hosts, tastefully decorated, spotless,quiet location everything we wanted in a holiday would definitely recommend

Wonderful cottage with lovely hosts l. Would definitely recommend

It’s a brilliant location for people like us who love walking.

Fantastic hosts. Couldn't do enough for us. The cottage was an absolutely perfect getaway!

An extremely well equipped and furnished cottage beyond our expectations.

Honestly don't have a bad thing to say about the cottage! Such a beautiful place, and such wonderful hospitality from our lovely hosts. We will definitely be recommending to all our friends, and hope to be back soon ourselves!

Dairy Cottage exceeded all expectations! This beautiful cottage is spacious, light and airy with attention having been paid to detail in all the furnishings, fixtures and fittings. The views across to the moor are just wonderful. It is a superb rest and relax location yet so close to and within easy reach of the glorious coastline of the South Hams and east Cornwall. The owners of the cottage live close by and couldn't be more helpful. We were picking up sections of the South West Coast Path and it provided us with a perfect base to explore the whole area from Salcombe to Plymouth. We will be back!

A lovely welcome from the owners . The welcome hamper of local food .
