“Great venue for a peaceful, comfortable and restful stay”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have just returned from a great stay in this lovely cottage. There were three of us, one of us being 90 years young, and we all agree that the cottage suited our requirements perfectly. Lovely fitted kitchen with every convenience, comfortable beds in large bedrooms with quality furnishings in the ensuite bedrooms.
Renate and John, the owners (and their chickens and ducks) are very welcoming and friendly and the farm's rural location is simply gorgeous. The lanes leading from the cottage are not for the faint-hearted but once they were negotiated we found the location to be central for both North and South coasts and for forays to inland locations like Buckfast Abbey, Barnstaple and Bideford.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from an amazing week at Pond Cottage. The cottage was truly a home from home and the views of picturesque Devon were amazing. The farm setting is great for kids and they especially loved the pool. John and Renate made us feel so welcome and we are definitely going to book again in the future.

“Amazing, amazing, amazing!!!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Have just got back from a 3night stay. This cottage is such a beautiful, tranquil place. We are sitting here wishing we were back in the lovely sitting area surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside.
Such lovely, welcoming hosts. Who always had time to chat and show us round their beautiful grounds.
Our daughter (4yrs) was sad to leave. She loved it so much especially seeing the baby frogs and watching the some 200 sheep being led into a different field.
Can't wait to return, hoping Therel b a free week left this year.
Highly recommended xx

“Beautiful cottage in unspoiled countryside.”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This was our fourth stay at Pond Cottage. The location is superb, set in rolling green countryside on a secluded working sheep farm. Our hosts are both welcoming and friendly and always make our stay comfortable and relaxed. The cottage is private, has it's own garden and is the base for many walks across the farmland. I would not hesitate to recommend Pond Cottage.

“Really lovely country cottage”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Very nice cottage - everything we could have hoped for. The highlights were the beautiful pond and the lovely ducks, the wood-burning fire, the big kitchen, and the eggs, jam and cider given to us by our generous host. John and Renate were very welcoming. We hope to be back soon!
