“Fantastic cottage!”
Reviewed 14 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016
2
people found this review helpful

We booked Passion Flower Cottage for our honeymoon 28th Dec 2016 to 4th Jan 2017. The pictures we had seen of the cottage were lovely but the reality exceeded our expectations! A 19th century converted barn, it is very cosy and homely, especially with the log burning fire in the lounge. Manya and Andrew (the owners) are a lovely friendly couple and nothing is too much trouble. Their dog Jude also provides a warm, waggy welcome! They have treated the cottage as an extension of their own home, adding lots of lovely extra special touches that you rarely find in a rented cottage. The kitchen is very well equipped which we really appreciated as we enjoyed quiet nights in front of the fire and eating home cooked food courtesy of my wonderful new husband! We can't recommend this beautiful cottage highly enough! It really is an absolute gem in rural Devonshire with easy access to both Devon and Cornwall. Book it now! You definitely wont regret it! We have fantastic memories of our honeymoon there!

“Another lovely stay”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We've just returned from another lovely stay in passion flower cottage and really can't fault it. The cottage is so cosy and dog friendly and a great location to explore the beautiful Devon countryside. The autumn colours were stunning and the weather was very kind! The dogs had a great time exploring the local footpaths. Thanks again to Manya and Andy for being such welcoming hosts.

“Ideal "out of the way" location”
Reviewed 22 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Ideal for chilling out, especially if you want something dog-friendly with plenty of countryside to walk them (our 2 terriers love it). Our third stay (so far), always sad to leave. Hosts really friendly.

“Perfection to a (cream) T!!”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

If taking a break from society and completely relaxing is what your looking for then Passion Flower Cottage is the place to stay. Having spent a restful week here I can certainly vouch for this. Beautiful cottage, tastefully decorated, quiet surrounding. The wonderful hosts thought of everything from dog treats & blankets for the woofer's to lots of fresh veg, milk & honey on request an best of all a mouthwatering cream tea on arrival!! Delicious. Lots of lovely walks nearby and Dartmoor just a short drive away. A definite recommendation. Next year's stay is already in the calendar!!

“pretty cosy, dog friendly,and accommodating cottage”
Reviewed 15 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

On arrival we were greeted by the owners and made to feel welcome and the scones and cream went down a treat . There was an enclosed section of garden at the back offering privacy and a safe place for my dog to have a stretch.There was a walk directly behind the cottage that utilised a wood the cottage was well equipped for a self catering holiday, with all amities catered for, even provided towels plus poo bags for my pooch as well , were very happy with our stay and would recommend to any one - thank you
