What an excellent little cottage, very well equipped and great features. The helpful guides and walks that had been prepared were greatly appreciated and made the whole experience much easier. It really seemed like they have thought of everything. We had a great four days and I would 100% recommend this little cottage to friends and family. Even after we left we got a very lovely message hoping we had enjoyed our stay and a jacket I left behind was returned within 3 days, I couldn't be happier with my choice and experience.

“Miss”
Reviewed 11 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a lovely week in Lot Cottage despite the wind and rain - really didn't want to leave! The cottage is in the perfect location for walking in the moors, and visiting Lydford Gorge. It's about an hours drive to some lovely beaches in Cornwall (also dog friendly) which are definitely worth a visit - Bude and Widemouth Bay are lovely. Handy having a dog friendly pub (The Castle) so closeby, pub was very welcoming, friendly locals. The pub quiz (on a Wednesday) is worth going to, food is good and reasonably priced too.

The cottage has everything you could possibly need from cooking equipment to a nice little selection of DVDs and books. The shower is also really good!

Thanks again for a lovely week, we will definitely be back!

“Perfect!!”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just come back from a week at Lot Cottage.
The cottages is everything and more than expected. Furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Lovely warm underfloor heating, fantastically comfortable bed.
I think that it was the most relaxing holiday that we have ever had.
Waitrose in Okehampton!!, was a nice home from home!
Elsie our spaniel and Albert our Dachshund , loved it too.
We would most definitely recommend Lot Cottage.

“Lovely cottage, clean and welcoming”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lot Cottage is ideally situated for those wishing to explore the Moors and surrounding areas. The cottage is well equipped, clean, welcoming and makes for a truly relaxing holiday. The log burner provides that cozy feel at the end of an already perfect day. The shower makes an excellent start to the day. It truly is homely. Situated just down the road from the Castle Inn Pub, which provides beautiful home cooked food, means there is no need to drive to get some decent pub grub (more than decent to be honest!) and a pint of real ale. The locals are friendly and the Village has a magical feel about it. What more could you want or need?

“The perfect cosy cottage for a wintery week away”
Reviewed 1 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Absolutely wonderful week, beautiful cottage in gorgeous surroundings. Huge comfortable bed that you just sink into at the end of lovely days spent out in the fresh air exploring the moors and local area. The wood burner in the lounge was perfect and kept us warm and toasty in the evenings, underfloor heating in the bedroom and bathroom also added to our warmth and comfort. Cannot thank you enough for creating such a sweet haven tucked away in Lydford, very much enjoyed ourselves and hope to return.

“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed 25 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Lovely cottage for a chilled out & relaxed break away. Fully equipped kitchen , very comfortable bed which was much needed after some beautiful walks out in Dartmoor. Absolutely loved the bathroom aswell, really nicely done out. If you want to go out for some food, there's some really nice pubs within walking distance, including the Castle Inn just down the road. Would definitely stay again!!
