    “What a gem!”


    We have holidayed in the area for many, many years and is our favourite place, but needed to find replacement accommodation as the owners were retiring back to our usual stay. Higher Collaton Cottage is truly charming and chic with exquisite furnishings of the highest standards. The gardens and setting being a rural iddylic retreat of great appreciation. It was picture perfect but we played a game to try and find something missing which, apart from a tin opener, which we did not need, could not fault this captivating place. The staircase, which is part of this characterful cottage, may present a challenge to the elderly or very young, but by the end of our stay we were stepping happily up and down with little concern. We can't thank you enough for sharing your wonderful home and wish to thank everyone for making it such a fabulous stay. We are a little disappointed it's already booked up for our next holiday. Can't wait to return
