Beautifully designed and decorated with wonderful views from lounge windows. Loved the location with endless excellent works nearby.

A very well proportioned contemporary decorated cottage. The perfect place to escape to.

This is a lovely location and a very comfortable cottage.

Exceeded expectations! Felt you undersold it a little on the website. Have booked many cottages with Classic - all high quality - but this is the winning one! A spacious country cottage with beautiful views and very generous outside space. Tranquil retreat but easy to get to major roads/routes. I recommend it!

The Potting Shed provided us with a wonderful Christmas get away. The location is great for accessing the wilds of Dartmoor and the wooded valley at Fingle Bridge, giving opportunities to walk in all types of weather. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped and the secure garden was perfect for our dog to run around in - especially when the owner’s friendly dog came to play!

We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your Christmas get away at The Potting Shed. We agree, it's in a great location for exploring wonderful Dartmoor. Sounds like the garden was pawfect for a doggie play date too. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Kelsey, Customer Support

Dog owners should know that the large garden is secure

We absolutely loved our stay at the Potting Shed. It is spacious and light and the beds are really comfortable. It is a really peaceful location, the garden is large with lovely views. The garden connects with the Owners garden next door but the garden feels really private and is not overlooked at all. Their dog Dottie popped round to visit which we and our dog really enjoyed.

We loved the location, great for walking around Fingle bridge and Castle Drogo which have beautiful scenery. We ate twice at the Three Crowns in Chagford.The staff were really friendly to us and dogs are made very welcome in the bar .The food was delicious

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Potting Shed. It was easy to get to and central to explore different parts of Devon, and Cornwall too. The property was superbly presented with comfortable furnishings and stocked with everything you would need for a self catering accommodation. We have a toddler who just loves exploring and running around, so to allow her to run off some energy the garden at the back was perfect and plenty of room for her to ply with her toys. Although there are some steps joining rooms together she managed fine, so a child friendly centre point for us to be on our holiday. Just to say ‘thank you’ to the housekeeper who answered all our questions and showed understanding throughout. A great place to stay if you want to be central and explore Devon with dogs or children.

We stayed at the Potting Shed last week and absolutely loved it. Great location with fabulous walks to nearby Fingle Bridge. The cottage itself is well equipped, and very clean. Nothing was too much trouble, the owners are lovely as is their spaniel Dottie! Highly recommend a stay here for the peace and quiet, and absolutely massive garden for the dogs to explore! Deb & Phil

Beautifully done house - extraordinarily comfortable and the location for walks is a wonder. We loved it. The garden is shared but the owners go out of their way to make it private for you.

Beautiful cottage, lovely friendly helpful owners. Our dogs really enjoyed playing with their dog and children. We had a wonderful stay. Would definitely recommend it.

The Potting Shed is an ideal location for exploring Dartmoor or just relaxing in the beautiful garden . Drewsteignton has all the facility’s you need plus the National Trust’s Castle Drogo nearby.

Fab cottage good location loved it nice pub in village, no charging for electric cars nearest point half an hour away ,

A great property, with lovely grounds and well situated for walking as well as visiting local attractions. Would recommend.

Stunning walks on the doorstep, great pubs with good food. Extremely cosy and spacious accommodation with all the home comforts.

Very well appointed accommodation. Owners very friendly and helpful. Nice pub within walking distance.

The open plan style of the property made it light and airy, which we liked. Lovely large garden for our dog which is shared with the owners and their dog, so not quite as private as described on Classic Cottages. Castle Drogo just down the road and well worth a visit, as is Becky Falls on Dartmoor. Fingle Bridge great for walking the dog in the evening and also just down the road. We would recommend this property.

We had a wonderful stay at The Potting Shed. The size and quality of the property far exceeded our expectations. The garden was huge and greatly enjoyed by our dog. The property was very well equipped, beds were comfy and there was always plenty of hot water. Some may see the location as a bit isolated but it was perfect for us. Quiet and tranquil but with good access to lots of local amenities. Would definitely stay again.

This property is beautiful and is in a stunning location and easily accessible to many places- Castle Drogo is very close and well worth a visit ! It’s really is a wow factor when you walk in the door- lovely to find a contemporary high spec holiday let especially when it’s dog friendly too! Great collection of local interest books and maps Would recommend a stay here

House layout was perfect for grown up children /two couples as bedrooms separated by the lounge. Very clean and comfortable, particularly the big sofa. Great garden and walks near by for the dogs

The perfect location to experience both Dartmoor and North Cornwall. Stunning scenery and lovely walks!

Very friendly and generous hosts who bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable and special. Light, spacious cottage with lovely floor to ceiling windows and bifold doors in the living area looking out onto beautiful views. No expense spared with the decor, and a lovely welcome pack. Our family had a wonderful holiday at The Potting Shed - thank you!

Actual property is perfect. Smelt lovely. Beds were comfy, bedding perfect. Very rural, terrible roads to the property. Not as private as description.

Quality of property. So light and airy and finished to a very high standard. Very peaceful and beautiful Outlook. It was a lovely place to stay and owners were friendly and helpful. Instructions for television would be helpful as we had to get the owner to help us!!!

We're so pleased that you had a wonderful time at The Potting Shed - we'll ask the owners if some TV insructions can be popped in the property to avoid any further confusion, but we're glad they were able to help you during your stay. Tressa, Customer Support
