It is difficult to put into words all the wonderful things about John, Renate, and Pond Cottage. John and Renate treat you like welcome neighbors and not people just letting their cottage. The cottage is well provisioned and very comfortable. The farm is a joy. My children fell in love with Wooly the sheep, the ducks, and getting eggs out...

What a beautiful place to go. Really is a peaceful retreat. The cottage is well equipped and the owners that live nearby are on hand to help with anything. We really had an incredible visit and was far better than we expected. Perfect. Would recommend totally.

Cottage was really spacious, clean and well equipped with all necessary tools in the kitchen to cook perfect dinner. Huge DVD collection would make you occupied if weather is not great outside. Perfect stay for nature lovers. Definitely recommend to visit it in summer!

About the neighbourhood
Tiverton is a historic market town occupied by the Romans who used it as a base for their activities in the West country. <BR><BR>The local museum provides an interesting insight into this aspect of the town's history. Visit the castle with its famous tapestry hangings and the pannier market held Fridays and Saturdays. There is a newly built leisure centre and a cinema. <BR><BR>The river Exe passes through the town as does the Grand Western canal and horse drawn barge trips take you through the most picturesque countryside. Knightshayes and Killerton House, two National Trust houses with beautiful garden are close by and well worth a visit.
