Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came for a relaxing retreat with our dog Roxy, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Sweet Rose turned out to be a fantastic getaway and a perfect base to explore Devon. Thank you for making our stay exactly what we wanted- secluded, peaceful and when needed, adventurous

Perfect family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed At sweet rose for our honeymoon and had an absolutely brilliant time! Our 2 year old son came on holiday with us and there were so many things to do locally! The cottage was also perfect for children with gates on the top and bottom of the stairs and a nice big bath to clean them in after getting sandy at the beach! Martin and his wife were very friendly and welcoming and I would definetly recommend sweet rose!

Owner's Response: It was a real pleasure having you all come and stay on your special occasion. Your boy is a real character and doesn't surprise me he loved the crabbing and beaches. As you know we came for a family holiday and then ended up moving with so much to do and in such a beautiful area for kids never mind the adults! Thank you so much for your kind words. Kim and I look forward to your return on an anniversary!

Owner's Response: When travelling it is so annoying not to know where to go or what to see and as such didn't want that for our guests and hence the production of our own guides for guests to find special gems in the area and make the most of their stay. Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Sweet Rose and Pilgrims Rest. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and especially found some peace and quiet whilst also access to some amazing pubs/restaurants and beaches nearby. Kind regards, Martin and Kim
