“Ok, but ...”
Reviewed 12 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The cottage is nice but I would think twice in bringing young children. I accept the choice of location is our fault but there isn't much to do for little ones nearby so we would have been better being closer to the coast. However, really lovely and quiet and set in a pleasant village.

The decor is adequate but the overall cleanliness in some areas e.g. High chair leaves a lot to be desired. The property benefits from a bit of clever photography. It is a cottage after all so expect small and you won't be surprised.

Extremely disappointed that the owners decided they couldn't come to the cottage to replace the 5 bulbs which had blown. This really affected our enjoyment of the property. The cottage also smells of damp. This may be due to it's age or something more sinister but either way, it smells.

Not great for a tall person but again, I wholly accept responsibility for our choice!

Thank you for your review.
I'm sorry you weren't more satisfied with your stay at Larksworthy Cottage and have acknowledged your complaints; our cottage management team is usually very efficient at ensuring that everything is working and clean.
We are rather disappointed that the decor is described as only being "adequate" as we have had the downstairs completely redecorated in the last four months. Also, we had it checked for damp and it definitely isn't so, as you suggest, the smell must just be its 400 years of history.
Although you felt that the cottage was small, I can assure you that, having stayed in many holiday cottages before we bought Larksworthy, it is actually spacious by comparison with most two bedroom cottages, especially the older ones, and I believe the photographs to be an accurate representation of its size.

“Beautiful cottage.”
Reviewed 5 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Had a fabulous week at larksworthy cottage and did not want to leave such a quaint cottage in a brilliant location close to the village which has everything you will need cottage is very well equipped snug and cozy. Had lunch at Kirsty's in village please go it was lovely freshly made food 10/10. Also went to the duke of York in iddesliegh brilliant Sunday roast. Only issue but nothing bad is maybe bit better pillows as quite skinny and uncomfortable for your neck but we will be returning as feel in love with this cottage and village.
