Three of us stayed at Spice and enjoyed every moment from a the warm welcome by the owner to our sad farewell, sorry to be leaving such a wonderful place! The cottage is beautiful, attention to detail being perfect - comfortable bed, high quality linen, fluffy towels, efficient heating, log burner with endless supply of logs, loads of hot water and a wonderful kitchen - well equipped and planned! And SO peaceful. Highly recommended!

We stayed in ‘Hopetown’ over Christmas with our son and family. The Cottage was stunning: spacious, well equipped, comfortable and exceptionally tastefully decorated. Top end of the market with great attention to detail. The Cottage was even decorated for Christmas .... again, just right - it was a real warm welcome - if only I realised that it would be decorated, I need not have brought the tree, lights and box of decorations. They provided the complete package. The Cottage was dog friendly, the grounds were lovely with many of the trees lit up at night. Could not fault the place. There was a plentiful supply of wood for the wood burner and the ‘owners’ were friendly and helpful.

We loved our stay at Spice Cottage. The cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything we could wish for. It was a real treat to stay in such beautiful surroundings, the gardens were simply stunning, with a choice of our own private space and the gardens of the main house. Marlyn and Eleanor were so welcoming. Thank you both for a wonderful stay. Ps - thanks for the apples - we're still enjoying them!!

My partner and I stayed at Spice cottage, (marketed as Butterkiss Cottage, not sure why though) from 18th to 25th November 2017. After a long drive from Kent, we arrive to a very welcome sight of a burning log fire which meant the cottage was nicely warm. This cottage is of a very high standard and very spacious and well equipped. The owners were very welcoming but did not invade our space unless we needed anything, in which case we only had to ask. The cottage is dog friendly, but not being a dog lover, there was no trace of any dogs previously being present. Loved staying there and if it is available will definitely book it again. Thank you Eleanor and Marlyn.

Upon arrival you are greeted with a view like a mini stately home. It's a grand house in extensive stunning gardens that you are free to explore and there is so much space that our dog loved. The cottages are adjacent to the house with parking. We stayed in Spice which was charming with a double height living area and well stocked kitchen. The cottage was immaculate and the attention to detail included super soft white fluffy towels just like a top 5 star hotel. It's a short walk to the New Inn that serves great food and a ramble around the quaint and quiet village is worthwhile including the very historic church. Being in central Devon Evans you can go exploring in every direction. Highly recommended for those seeking tranquil and beautiful surroundings and looking for a central base in Devon.
