The property was perfect for 8 people all sundries provided such as tea coffee etc. We arrived to find milk cookies and a nice bottle of red provided free of charge. The cottages are close to lots of places of interest and easy to find. As a family we would thoroughly recommend the Pilgrims Rest experience. We are already looking forward to returning in the near future.

Perfect for two young families to stay over the New Year period, all child friendly including stairs gates and excellent layout on the ground floor as all open plan. Highly recommend!
The property description is accurate but we did not take into account how narrow the spiral staircase is when lifting suitcases and for erderly members of our party, however it did not spoil our Christmas break.
The property was clean, well maintained and a lovely touch was the bottle of wine, mince pies and Christmas card from the owners. There was a lovely Christmas tree with all the trimmings and lights outside the property which made it feel very festive.
The owner is an excellent landlord and looked after us very well.
On Christmas Eve we had dinner at the Orange Tree in Torbay which was superb. We opted for the tasting menu and could not fault anything. The owners wife was our hostess and nothing was too much trouble.
On Boxing Day we went down to the beach which was lovely and we would highly recommend a stay at this delightful property.
Lovely barn conversion and very comfortable throughout. There was everything provided that we could possibly need.
As we were out most of the day we didn't put the TV on much. It had freeview and there were some DVDs to watch. The settees were so comfortable and cosy. The dining table seated 8 but we had 9 and a high chair. It was plenty big enough for us. The kitchen was clean and had everything we needed. The washer came in handy. There were 2 fridges , a freezer and plenty of cupboard space. We did a large Asda shop when we arrived and ate in every evening. We took a picnic with us during the daytime, having the freezer meant we had ice sheets to keep it fresh all day.
There was a toilet and shower downstairs and upstairs 2 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms. The beds were comfy and the linen clean and fresh. Towels were provided.
Martin our host was very friendly and provided endless information on walks beaches and places to eat. We had a Chinese takeaway on Martins recommendation for our last evening meal and it was the best I've tasted. A wonderful holiday location and plenty of room for a large family or friends.
We came for a family holiday with two infants in tow to a beautiful barn and surroundings, owned and run by a lovely family whose hospitality was memorable. Cockington is gorgeous and the zoo brilliant. Totally laid back and relaxed, we have all had a fabulous week.
It has been such a lovely place to stay. Comfortable, spacious rooms, very well equipped kitchen and a home away from home. Such a beautiful town full of friendly people with lots to do at the harbour. We recommend taking a visit to Brixham, a beautiful little town where we travelled to by boat which was very cheap and bought some fantastic fish and chips! If you are looking for a home from home then this is the place to relax and unwind and take in your surroundings. Thank you for your warm welcome, bottle on wine and cake, it was a lovelt touch. Summer (2 ½ years old) loved it and called it “heaven” and wants to come back! Thank you again.
