The cottage was situated in a small village with a pub and post office come general shop, the main town was only a 10 min drive away and there was a couple of other good pubs for food too. It was an ideal spot to explore Dorset, Devon and Somerset. The cottage is clean, comfortable and well appointed. The owners were lovely.

We had a wonderful 1st family holiday with out 5 month old baby and Rob and Sara could not have been more welcoming or accomodating. We would highly recommend Pound Retreat as a comfortable base for exploring the area!

A lovely cottage that is very well resourced which is situated in the beautiful little village of Chardstock. Thank you very much to the owners Sara & Rob for their warm welcome plus the cream tea which was delicious & the beautiful bunch of roses.

Beautiful and spacious house which is located perfectly in the peaceful countryside but close enough to explore the busy coastline of Devon and Dorset. Very dog friendly. Even got to hang out with the local dog walkers who were happy to advise on best routes.

Lovely place to stay, quiet and friendly villagers. A great base and close to seaside locations. Lovely walks for us and the dogs.

Reviewed by Cassandra 13th April 2019

Charming and comfortable. Sofa very comfortable, nearby pub was great. Outside space isn't huge, but big enough. Owners line next door and are very helpful. For did owners I'd say it's worth timing the fur between dogs yours as it's laminate flooring
