We were visiting from the US and found Oak Cottage to be a lovely, characterful and comfortable property that easily holds 12. Beautiful both inside and out with great space for spreading out and everything you could want for a great stay. Great location from which to see lovely South Devon. We loved the river cruise in Dartmouth and the cliff walk around Start Point Lighthouse is exquisite. The home is meticulously maintained and the grounds have something for everyone. Can't wait to return!
Oak Cottage is a fabulous cottage set in a courtyard in the grounds of a country house. The owners have thought of absolutely everything that a group of up to 12 could wish for. Comfortable, well equipped with absolutely everything to a very high standard. The surrounding gardens are beautiful and the area very quiet. The nearest beach, Slapton Sands in a great stretch of shingle beach with a nature reserve behind. With a very acceptable welcome pack on arrival and the most attentive and interesting caretaker you could wish for, we had really great week here.
Oak Cottage at Buckland Court is a great place for a large group of people wishing to explore the beautiful South Hams area of Devon.
We were a group made up of three totally outnumbered mums and eight children, who ranged in age from 6 to 14 years.
There was plenty to keep them all occupied at the cottage, from exploring the very large garden to playing pool or racing cars on the PlayStation.
The cottage is extremely well equipped and very comfortable.
The coast is just a few minutes drive away along beautiful country roads. There are stunning beaches to visit, which can be reached if walking along the costal path. However, the cottage is also very close to Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Totnes and Salcombe, where you will find some lovely shops and restaurants. From these towns you may take many different boat trips either along the coast or up the estuaries. We hired two small motor boats in Dittisham and explored the River Dart.
The holiday was great fun and we all had a wonderful time. Hopefully, we will be able to arrange a friends reunion at Oak Cottage again sometime in the future. There is still so much of South Devon to explore!
My family and I had a wonderful time here, the house comes provided with everything you could need and is located in a lovely area- lots of surrounding places to visit and we can't wait to come back!
Oak Cottage at Buckland Court is a very well equipped five bedroom cottage in an ideal location to explore South Devon. The kitchen diner and living room area's are great for the centre of activity for large family get together's. The cottage is set in a beautiful area with a lovely garden behind the lower cottages. The pool/ table tennis table provided a good addition for entertainment. The cottage was prepared for our arrival to a good standard with milk, shortbread, Cava and flowers a lovely touch. We had a great week, Thankyou.
We rented the cottage for a family celebration and so as well as the 12 staying, there are visitors too. Everyone enjoyed the gardens, with the little ones especially liking the playhouse and the ducks. The caretaker, Simon, was very helpful and informative, especially about the incubation of ducks. My granddaughters got to see newly hatched chicks. The kitchen was great. Dishwasher, washer and dryer were kept busy. Together with comfy beds, who could ask for more!

As a 3 family group of friends 12 in total we usually stay in separate accomadation, and since finding the little gem that is oak cottage we now struggle to find anything even close.
Second time we have stayed now and everyone throughly enjoyed our holiday and no doubt we shall return again. Only reason for the location score is the lanes do get a bit narrow in places which you do get use to.
