Devon Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Warm welcome from hosts Jen and Steve to the attractively furnished and well equipped Coach House. The house was cosy and surprisingly quiet, with the town and the A38 within spitting distance. Ashburton is full of character and history and served by a number of shops for locals and visitors. Definitely a place to visit if you like your food, with deli, artisan baker, restaurants and the famous cookery school.

Characterful, spacious property in central location

  • 5 of 5

Jen and Steve were very accommodating allowing me access to the property early in the morning before starting a course at the Ashburton Cookery School - which is less than 5 minutes walk away. So it was an ideal location for me, and very comfortable with everything I needed. The house was also well heated and warm in a rare below-freezing week this winter.

A great get away for two

  • 5 of 5

Spacious yet warm and cosy, this is a great base for enjoying wild Dartmoor to the full (the underfloor heating soon dried our kit!) or just hide away from the world. Despite being in the centre of Ashburton, the cottage was surprisingly quiet and we had a great night's sleep. Looking forward to going back again.

A really spectaculary retreat in a lovely town

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better two nights in Devon! Steve and Jen were absolutely delightful and their home, as well as their coach house property for rent are beautiful and very well maintained. The town is very small, but has quite a few restaurants, shops and a very nice market if you're staying for a few days and want to cook. Absolutely everything we could have wanted was stocked in the house, and if we had found anything lacking, I'm sure that Jen would have found it for us, immediately.

Absolutely immaculate inside, the coach house is so well maintained and well appointed; we were happier there than at our own home, I think! Give the local pub a try for their pizza, and the local Indian takeaway was also delicious. The market is not to be missed if you want to stock the fridge for a few days, but can be a little tricky to find. Jen gave us wonderful directions and we still felt like we must have taken a wrong turn somewhere!

I highly recommend this property for anyone who wants a relaxing retreat in Devon. Day-tripping into Dartmoor National Park and over to Cornwall was a breeze. We will definitely stay with Jen and Steve again if we return to the area!

Another great VRBO find!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed in Ashburton in "The Coach House". Everything about it is perfect from the wonderful owners and hosts, Steve and Jen, to the quality of the refurbishment, the location and the village of Ashburton itself. Do not hesitate to book this unique and wonderful accommodation!

We enjoyed our short stay at the Coach House and were made very welcome by Jen and Steve. Ashburton is a lovely little town with lots of interesting shops and places to eat.
