Dave and Allison were so warm and welcoming. The cottage was immaculate and the facilities are of an exceptionally high standard. The gardens and pool are beautiful. We hope to return next year. Thank you for a wonderful week.

Dr F,

This property met all our expectations and beyond. The cleanliness was 10/10 and the facilities were fantastic. We found it worked really well to be allocated the hot tub and pool on a rota basis with the other cottages. Location wise it ticked all the boxes of what we were looking for on a relaxing break, very rural spot but easy to access a local pub and shop. The hosts were wonderful and very friendly and accommodating, we would highly recommend Dart Cottage.

Mrs B,

We have already stayed twice in the smaller cottage ‘Bovey’ which is perfect for couples. This time we stayed in ‘Dart’ for a family holiday. The cottage is really lovely and had everything we needed. The pool is great as is the hot tub, with such a relaxing view. There are so many lovely places to visit in this area. Dave and Alison are wonderful hosts. As with our previous visits we were well looked after and look forward to returning.

Mrs A,
