“Fabulous dog friendly cottage”
Reviewed 23 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My husband and I have just spent a lovely 3 night break at Passion Flower cottage . Manya and her husband were lovely and the cream tea she made for us was a lovely touch . This is a great dog friendly cottage with great walks and good pubs not far away . We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage.

It was lovely to meet you both and I really appreciate the comments you have made about the cottage.We do love having dogs to stay and we try to make it as welcoming for them as we do for their owners! Hope to see you again one day.

“Perfect rural retreat”
Reviewed 15 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Perfect peaceful rural location, excellent for dog walking with access to woodland walks from the cottage garden.Dartmoor is also close by and Bude on the north coast is within easy reach.The cottage has everything you could possibly need and the bedroom is huge with a lovely ensuite and enormous bath. The owners were extremely friendly and available to help with any advice and recommendations on where to visit. We had our 2 dogs with us and they were also made to feel very welcome.

“Beautiful cottage and location”
Reviewed 15 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A fantastic cottage with really friendly hosts (especially Jude the dog). Inside it was cosy and had everything we needed, whilst being seconds away from the woods meant beautiful walks were on our doorstep. Great place, great location, we'll definitely be returning!

“Awesome cottage”
Reviewed 4 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We arrived at Passion Flower Cottage to be greater with scrumptious cream teas and a welcome bag for our Whippet Jonty. The cottage had everything you could wish for and needed. The decor was so pretty and very welcoming. Spotlessly clean throughout and a lovely comfortable good size bed. Excellent enclosed garden for Jonty and a short walk to the woods. Manya and Andrew with Jude the spaniel made us feel at home and nothing was to much for them. Would highly recommend this cottage but book early as it gets booked quickly. Ideal place as a base to explore the wonderful towns and beaches of Devon and Cornwall.

“Pretty country retreat”
Reviewed 27 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Manya was there to meet us, and she left us a wonderful Devon cream tea, which was so welcome after a long drive down! The house was perfect for a couple on a walking holiday, with a lovely wood-burning stove to come home to to thaw out after days on rainy Dartmoor. Beautifully and artfully furnished, and run by a lovely couple and their sweet dog, I can thoroughly recommend Passion Flower Cottage for anyone looking to get away from it all.

“Rural retreat to recharge your batteries”
Reviewed 14 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Beautiful cottage in an idyllic location in rural Devon. This is the place to get away from it all and recharge your batteries. The cottage is immaculately presented, beautifully furnished, with a very cosy living room and delightful bedroom. The living area has the added bonus of the wood-burning stove, great for a wet afternoon, curled up on the sofa watching a DVD, warming your toes. Lovely little garden which I imagine would be perfect for that summer barbecue. It's a car journey to the nearest shops/amenities, down a few narrow Devon lanes, but this is normal for this area. Tavistock is the nearest town and a delight, definitely worth a visit(s). We spent 6 lovely days in the area and managed to easily cover mid Cornwall (down to Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligon), North and South Devon, including Dartmoor on the doorstep and Plymouth area. Great stay, perfect location.
