About the Owner

My husband and I converted this barn ourselves along with other family members in 2004. I grew up in a small place called Richings Park, which is not far from Slough, moving to the South West when I was 16 with my family. My husband is originally from the North with family still in Cheshire & Cumbria. Having been in sales and promotions for most of his working life, the challenge of converting Wagtail Cottage was a great learning curve but a very enjoyable one. We hope that you appreciate Wagtail Cottage as much as we appreciated converting it.

Amazing!

Lovely cottage, with an amazing kitchen. We stayed for a few nights and already planning on coming back here again.

Greeted with carrot and chocolate cake which we couldnt stop eating!

Everything was perfect from the start of the holiday to the end.

A true gem

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely Christmas here with family and friends. The facilities were top notch, and the children loved the games room and all enjoyed the swimming pool.

The cottage was absolutely beautiful and the Christmas decorations were a lovely touch (as were the truffles and wine - thank you ).

We would wholeheartedly recommend Wagtail Cottage and hope to return again someday.

Lovely private site in the country

  • 5 of 5

We took four grandchildren and a set of parents and we had a lovely stay. We selected Wagtail because of its size and facilities and we were not disappointed. The weather was mixed but the pool and games room were brilliant and when we were on site the children could come and go without a problem due to its private enclosed location. The cottage was very large and despite the numbers we never felt short of space. The location is beautiful and only about 20 mins from Torquay and Paignton. You will need a car to get to the nearest shops, pubs and restaurants but that was a minor issue given the setting. I would recommend this site to anyone, particularly if you have children but want somewhere private.

Beautiful location and great facilities

  • 5 of 5

We took four grandchildren and a set of parents to Wagtail cottage for a week. We selected this cottage because of the facilities, particularly on site swimming, games rooms, play areas and private setting. We were not disappointed. We had a few days with mixed weather and the children were easily entertained and the pool was superb. The property is massive so we never felt short of space and the facilities within it were perfect. 20 mins from Torquay or Paignton yet located in a private development that allowed the children to wander around in complete safety. The size of the site was also pleasing, quite mall and select but with a nice mix of people and other children that just allowed time to pass nicely. I recommend this site without reservation. You will need a car though to get to shops
