Wonderful setting.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a fantastic location and the view is outstanding. It is a cosy cottage, but has everything you need in it. This is our second time staying at Windtor and we hope to be back.

There was only a little negative which was a shame. You have to leave by 10 am on the morning of departure, which is more than acceptable. The cleaners turned up at 09.55 and waited outside, staring at us, which we found quite off putting as we were loading up the car. Apart from that little blip, everything was fantastic.

Perfect as usual

  • 5 of 5

The house is always a charming place to get away from it all. It's just far enough away from anything touristy to give peace and quiet, but not so far away that you have to drive for hours to do anything.

There's plenty to do, both in Widecombe and around it, including plenty of walks, and a lovely farm shop about 5-10 minutes drive towards Newton Abbot.

I can honestly say each time we go, it's a home away from home. You'd never know it was a holiday home, not too posh, it feels like a family home. Obviously it's very well taken care of, very clean, and there's always some every day essentials in the kitchen cupboards.

The only problem we had was needing more time to do everything we wanted. We'll certainly be back again.

Comfy cottage with superb views and excellent base for walking

  • 5 of 5

We found the cottage to be cosy and well equipped. It was good to have a secure garden for our dog. It's a perfect place to walk 'from the door', and the view from the lounge was stunning. We had an excellent meal at the Rugglestone Inn and would happily stay in the cottage again.
