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

Owner's Response: Wonderful to hear you had a fantastic stay with us in Sweet Rose and really loved the fabulous coastal walks nearby, whilst also taking advantage of the odd eatery for sustenance! Charlie certainly got his 4 legs walking; such a lovely dog. We know the gardens are a hit to relax, with a well earned glass in hand on a sun lounger after a long walk! Thank you for taking the time to write a review; so helpful to know we are hitting the mark. See you again soon. Martin and Kim

Owner's Response: Dear Vince and Michelle So glad you loved Sweet Rose and found the area such a picture. Babbacombe and The Cary Arms is certainly a top spot for a birthday lunch, right next to the sea and a favourite. For those whom like to leave the car and explore, the bus service certainly covers all guests typically want to see on The English Riviera and does offers great value. Thank you, as always, for taking the time to write a review and see you again soon. Martin and Kim

Owner's Response: So glad you got the relaxation you needed - as you said when leaving, the bath is a hit with a long soak after the great walks along the coast path. Your pooches were just lovely and glad they enjoyed their treats. Thank you for taking the time to write the review and we look forward to your return one day. Kind regards, Martin and Kim

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!
