    “Spring Cottage was lovely and cosy and so clean when we arrived.”

    It was well stocked with crockery etc...

    It was well stocked with crockery etc... The only tiny downside is that as the weather changed and it rained more, the cottage became a little bit damp and the wardrobes had a slightly musty smell. This didn't change the fact that we had a wonderful holiday.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are thrilled to hear you found our property lovely and cosy, however we were very concerned to read that the wardrobe smelt damp. We have investigated on several occasions and in different weather conditions, including when left empty for some time in the wet and cold, but neither the wardrobes nor the house in general have smelt of any damp. We can only conclude that perhaps something wet was left in the wardrobe. We do hope you had a great holiday and enjoyed all the area has to offer. Property Owner

Nearby, Halwell is a small village in wooded farmland equidistant from the busy little town of Kingsbridge and popular Totnes - A charming Devon town with a bustling main street and a regular market, the area boasts regular outdoor markets on Fridays and Saturdays. During the main season, between May and September, there is an Elizabethan market each Tuesday morning.
