About the Owner

We bought the cottage, following early retirement, for ourselves and our grown up family to use.

Since then we have also enjoyed renting the cottage to holiday visitors and have been very pleased to have received fantastic feedback from the people who have stayed.

Whilst we are new advertisers on this site, with previous sites we are proud to have achieved a 5 star rating.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again we have returned to this peaceful cottage in a perfect location and returned home feeling completely relaxed and hoping we get to go back. The cottage is very well equipped, very clean and extremely comfortable. It is located in an ideal part of the South Hams and is accessible to many beautiful beaches and places of interest. (2014)

Bramleigh Cottage is set in beautiful surroundings which are very peaceful and relaxing.

The Cottage itself is a credit to its owners. We have stayed a few times now and it has everything you need for a comfortable holiday. It is exceptionally well maintained and welcoming. (2014)

We had an amazing time and wouldn't hesitate in recommending a stay in the cottage. I chose Bramleigh cottage as I was 33 weeks pregnant at the time and read the amazing reviews about how clean and well equipped the cottage was and how relaxing previous guests had found their stay. I have to say that the reviews are accurate - I have never stayed in such a clean holiday cottage, it really was immaculate and had absolutely everything we could have possibly needed and more. (2013)

The cottage was welcoming and peaceful, and the kitchen was well provided. The only sounds we heard were from the birds and the sheep and cows. We had fresh eggs every morning from the neighbouring hens. We could walk to hills and streams from our cottage and to Avon Mill, by way of Avon River, for scones and tea or lunch. We shopped at nearby Kingsbridge for food.....great and reasonable produce. It was a short drive to the ocean, e.g. Hope Cove and Salcombe, for terrific walks along the cliffs. This was our second and longest stay at Bramleigh, and hopefully not our last.

Such a lovely property. Well equipped & peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

This was easily the best cottage we've stayed in and was equipped with everything needed. The rooms are spacious & modern and the surroundings were exceptionally peaceful. Clearly, Keith & Jean have been very thoughtful when furnishing and equipping the property and we even found items we didn't expect. To sum up, we can't think of anything that would improve your stay and the milk, cookies & wine were a very welcome gesture. Book & enjoy!

Fantastic, cosy and has everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is amazing, it is so peaceful and in a beautiful location. The owners have thought of everything you need. It has very friendly neighbours and has beautiful beaches nearby. Who needs to go abroad! We will defiantly be back. The little touches like eggs, milk, wine and cookies go down a real treat too. The cottage was very clean and information for surrounding places to visit and places to eat were very well appreciated. We would recommend Blackpool sands and Bigbury on sea for beaches and go to Torquay to the Model village and Kents caverns. Loved every minute.

A peaceful and beautiful spot to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Bramleigh late last summer and have just returned for a few days. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and found the cottage to be cosy and very well equipped on both occasions, whatever the weather outside! We found it to be immaculate, very well maintained and welcoming. We visited several of the beaches nearby both during warm, sunny weather and during dramatic storms - both stunning. We would highly recommend this beautiful cottage nestled in the peaceful countryside but within very easy reach of so many attractions.

Spring break

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay and we have on several occasions. Thoroughly recommend this lovely cottage in a peaceful location. Off the beaten track, so a car is essential. Maintained to a high standard and well equipped. Location is good for exploring the South Hams and beyond.

Lovely cottage in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Bramleigh for a week in August having stayed many times in the past. The cottage was, as ever, immaculately presented and was very well equipped with everything we could possibly need. The location is beautiful, surrounded by farmland: a wonderful place to get away from it all. We love the South Devon area, and the cottage is ideally located for the great beaches and local towns such as Dartmouth and Salcombe. We would definitely recommend Bramleigh to friends and family (and have already done so!). We will be back!

Fantastic Break

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Bramleigh several times and have always found it to be a fantastic place to stay. As well as being beautifully presented, the cottage is very well maintained, spotlessly clean and the owners have thought of everything you could need to be comfortable. The surroundings are beautiful and quiet and it is a great base for visiting the local beaches, countryside and villages. We have often recommended this property to our friends and relatives.
