A really warm welcome from Wendy and Ray on our arrival set the tone for our holiday. The cottage was very comfortable, and cosy in wet weather, with absolutely everything we required.

Cottage is beautiful but has a lot of stairs, so not suitable for the less mobile. It is set in a peaceful location which is central for Dartmoor & Plymouth. There are two local railway stations nearby. The owners make you feel very welcome & nothing is too much trouble for them. We will definitely return.

The Cobbles was amazing! Hosts were really welcoming and went above & beyond to help us. We wanted somewhere that would be interesting for our 2 year old and, being a working farm, we couldn't have picked a better place. The cottage itself offered a wonderful living space, everything we needed was supplied including plates and cups appropriate for Read morechildren, and the enclosed garden was great safe space for our little boy to play in while watching the tractor drive back and forth. We all loved it! Hide

Ray and Wendy were the best hosts. Warmly greeting us, and the cream tea was a nice touch. The farm and the surroundings give you a true countryside feel, and the location is ideal to explore both Devon and Cornwall. The property is comfortable and well equipped.

Ray and Wendy made us feel very welcome and the cottage was lovely. It it ideally situated to explore the surrounding area and we enjoyed Salcombe and Sidmouth. There are quite a few stairs so not ideal for anybody with mobility issues. We will definitely recommend The Cobbles.
