“Quiet peaceful cottage but within reach of local amenities”
“The cottage was lovely and very comfortable.”
We enjoyed visiting Dartmouth and Salcombe as well as the hotel in Goveton for afternoon tea. Lovely peaceful surroundings.
“The cottage is in a very quiet location and all the facilities are very well thought out.”
Both bedrooms are comfortable and the bathrooms clean and well proportioned. We over came the lack of WIFI by bringing our own 4GEE WiFi Mini and placing it in the window of the smaller bedroom at the front. This gave us WIFI all round the cottage. Perhaps the owners should consider this, as the WIFI proved a great help in us searching online for places to visit and locating restaurants for eating out. A well placed and excellent place to stay.
“The cottage was beautiful,peaceful and in beautiful countryside!”
Only two minor problems,no signal for phones and the lanes to reach property are very pretty but very narrow!we loved it!after our daughters wedding a week before it was just what doctor ordered!
“You have the cottage list as towels and bed linen included this is incorrect as they do not provide towels only tea towels.”
Luckily I had taken beach towels .
“QUALITY ACCOMMODATION,TRANQUIL LOCATION ,WELL EQUIPPED -VERY PLEASANT STAY”
“Please consider providing wifi”

“Shepherds cottage was very well equipped but unfortunately there were a few shortcomings.”
1.There was no general info. on the basics concerning getting the best out of the cottage.eg. no info on how to dea with the rubbish,recycle what and not etc. 2.No central heating instructions. 3.very uncomfortable lounge furniture....made for giants! 4.Very sparse bedroom furniture,....could at least supply a chair in each room. 5.Main TV. remote control was unserviceable despite buying and fitting new batteries.This was extremely annoying!!
