We had a fabulous week at Pooks Hill Cottage. The village is very quiet and relaxing with a lovely pub called the Castle situated at the top of the road, about a 3 minute walk. The Cottage is mmaculate, comfortable and very clean and wonderfully kitted out . The garden is very quaint, private and a sun trap is the afternoon. Its everything we expected and more. Thank you.

A beautiful 300 year old cottage full of old English charm and nice and roomy for a one bedroom place. Set in a beautiful village with other thatched properties, a pub within a few yards and very close to Dawlish and Teignmouth. A lot of thought had gone into making this an outstanding holiday rental. Charming and secluded garden

The cottage was wonderful and we did enjoy our stay and the pub was great , the only was the hills were very testing.

A very warm and cosy cottage with lovely decor hope to return at some point.

A very comfortable stay.

Pools cottage is a lovely quaint, but surprisingly spacious cottage situated in a very pleasant little village. Easy walking distance to both Dawlish and Teignmouth. The local pub is welcoming and serves good, simple wholesome food.

The cottage is well equipped, has nice quality linens etc. Plenty of hot water on demand. Wonderful to see a sparklingly clean shower - no black “bits” in corners. The heating system very responsive so made it easy to stay cosy on the chilly evenings.

Would readily recommend.

We had a very comfortable and cosy stay at Pooks! I would certainly recommend this property. The pub just up the hill was a wonderful added comfort.

A very quaint and comfortable cottage, well equipped and full of character. I loved being able to walk to the beach with my dog.

Please make it clear that unless you have a small car parking is a problem
