    "A truly beautiful cottage. Well equipped and tastefully furnished. Nothing has been overlooked.Very rural, which makes it very peaceful. Would suit a family or a romantic hideaway."
    Baranidharan – 27 Aug 2018
    "We had a lovely time in Sweet Bay Cottage in north Devon. It was well maintained and comfortable. It was a perfect break and the the caretakers, Sandi and Steve were always available for any clarifications. Even though it was a listed building it was furnished well with modern amenities taking care that the original structure and plan was maintained."
    Joanne – 18 Aug 2018
    "Lovely cottage. The lane very narrow to the cottage. WiFi doesn't work very well. Lovely and quiet. Very well equipped with everything you need."
    "We had a fantastic holiday, the cottage was superb and very well equipped. It is set in a beautiful location with plenty of areas for you to walk dogs directly from the property. The owners were very welcoming and helpful."
