We stayed for 4 nights and was made to feel so welcome, homemade jam and scones were awaiting us when we arrived among other goodies. Owners are on site if anything is needed like info or advice. Very peaceful and great to get away from it all, including the mobile phones. Clean and comfortable everything needed for a great get away. Plenty of quiet outside space to chill. Local pub serves good food and staff friendly, this is a small country inn only 10 minutes walk away with quite a selection of gins.
Booked Owlacombe Mill after Ryanair cancelled our flight to Spain.Thank goodness they did.This is the best holiday we have had in England for many years.Peaceful and tranquil set in a valley with a stream running past the cottage.
Very rural with views across the fields and your own private garden to sit in.Gareth and Carol were the perfect hosts who live next door and were on hand to answer any questions.Car is essential as there are some steep areas on the road to walk up to the village,but if you are fit it should not be a problem.The New Inn in the village is an excellent pub and restaurant.We ate there every night from their varied menu and food was reasonably priced.In conclusion if you want a quiet,peacful holiday or break Owlacombe Mill is the cottage you need to rent.
lovely little cottage in an idyllic peaceful setting, very well equipt. Excellent cream tea on arrival along with a warm welcome, glad i spent my birthday there enjoying a tasty meal in the nearby pub to celebrate and a few glasses of wine couldn't have enjoyed my birthday more.
We stayed for a long weekend and felt that this wasn't long enough to take in all the beautiful, tranquil surroundings. Gareth and Carol really did think of everything and made us feel more than welcome during our stay. The photographs on the website really do not do this beautiful cottage justice and you must see it in person to fully appreciate this stunning Devonshire little piece of heaven!! It was even a joy not to have any wifi or phone signal for the duration as we felt we were able to really unplug from the outside world and really capture everything around us. Amazing place run by wonderful people....we fell in love with Owlacombe Cottage and we hope to return again one day soon. We really cannot rate this highly enough!
If you love the countryside and peace, this is the place for you. The cottage is lovely and next door to the owners' property. The owners are great and couldn't be more helpful and friendly. It is a wonderful place to relax and, although very secluded, it is easy to get to lots of beautiful places for days out. We particularly enjoyed seeing the amazing variety of birds out of the windows, on the feeders. This was our second visit and the cottage is always very welcoming (with delicious scones) and extremely clean. We would definitely return.
