Great well equipped cottage in good position for days at the beach and visiting castles and stately homes. Someone with limited mobility would struggle with stairs. Would definitely stay here again.

We had a wonderful week in Holly Cottage. The house is well-appointed and very comfortable, and the location is excellent - close to lots of fantastic beaches and other places to visit.

A very pretty cottage in a peaceful location with access by car to beautiful beaches, coastal walks local shops and pubs. The garden is a good size with an eating out area, and the modern open plan kitchen/diner extension is bright and we'll equipped.

Lovely peaceful cottage. Very quiet location. Comfortable and well equipped. Lovely garden to relax in but we used our camping chairs which were more comfortable to sit in than the wrought iron ones provided. Be prepared for driving on narrow roads, sometimes single track with passing places. Not a problem for us, I grew up in the next village, but if you are not used to these roads it can be a challenge. And Google maps will take you the fastest route!

Thanks so much for sharing your review - we hope you enjoyed returning to your childhood stomping ground! We'd love to welcome you back again in the future. Tanya, Customer Support

Very comfortable cottage with everything provided. Perfect location for us. Sloping, low upstairs bathroom ceiling means it's impossible for anyone over 4 ft to stand up over the loo. Also be warned the stairs are steep, uneven and we oldies had to be vigilant not to fall. Our suitcases never made it up the stairs in 6 weeks!

We are so glad to hear that you found the cottage was well equipped - a lot of thought goes into preparing the property for guests. We do try to highlight the sloping ceiling and are sorry that you missed this in the description - we hope that this didn't detract too much from your stay. Sarah, Customer Support

Great location for South Hams exploring. Quiet and very comfortable. Excellently decorated and with a filled larder. BUT not suitable for anyone unused to steep, uneven cottage stairs or with any kind of mobility issue. We thought they were quite hazardous. The upstairs toilet's low sloping ceiling makes it impossible to stand. OK if you don't mind crouching to get to the loo!

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on Holly Cottage. We're delighted that you enjoyed so many aspects of the property and the stunning location. We do advise caution in our description about the sloping ceilings, low beams and the bathroom having restricted headroom. I'm sure you'll agree that these quirks are part of the natural charm and character of an 18th Century property. We do hope that we can welcome you back. Julie, Customer Support

Holly Cottage is a delight, tucked away down a Devon lane. Beautifully presented and well stocked with provisions. A perfect base from which to explore the surrounding countryside and coast. Classic Cottages interacted professionally.

We had a lovely week in Holly Cottage. Really well equipped and beautiful furniture and soft furnishings Really good to have the availability of a pretty garden if the weather was warmer

Excellent cottage and location.

Very well equpit and clean. Beautiful surroundings very relaxing. Within easy reach of Plymouth

This is a beautiful cottage in a sweet location. The garden is very pretty and would be lovely on a sunny day.

It has been well and tastefully decorated. It has a well equipped kitchen and comfortable bedrooms.

Beware the ceiling height is very low in the bathroom and living room.

Had a great time-stunning cottage! Really well equipped -everything was high spec/quality. Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful stay at Holly Cottage- it was clean and beautifully presented. We would highly recommend to others. The garden was delightful with a gorgeous patio that was in the evening sun. The owner was clearly keen to provide the best possible stay. It is really well positioned with easy access to the local beaches- Wonwell was a favourite of ours! We would certainly come back to Holly Cottage. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

We loved every minute of staying at Holly Cottage. The cottage for us was quite remote but this was a definite positive. Some great beaches nearby for us and our dog to use. The pub was just a 20 minute walk and Albee to use the public footpaths to get most of the way there. The cottage is beautiful and the quality of the furnishings, soft furnishings and all pots and pans, plates and cutlery was first class. We would love to come back to Holly Cottage
