3rd May 2017 - (Moonseeker) We have spent a wonderful 5 nights here at Moonseeker. We regularly rent cottages across the UK and this is the best find yet. From the moment we arrived it was so peaceful and relaxing and everything we needed was in place - even the dog towels, bowls and blankets. We loved watching the birds and sheep/lambs from the kitchen and enjoyed a few games of chess when the rain came. The garden is a great sun trap in the afternoon/early evening to enjoy a drink after a long walk on Dartmoor. We are keen walkers so would recommend heading onto the moors for great views - we did Belstone, Meldon and a walk around the Warren House Inn.
13th May 2017 - (Dreamcatcher) Dreamcatcher is lovely. All that is needed for a relaxing time. Enjoyed walks on Dartmoor and visits to gardens, especially Rosemoor and Castle Drogo, meals in, country pubs have been good, and visiting country churches. Loved the garden and birds.
15th May 2017 - (Moonseeker) Thank you all so much Nicky, Sheila and Trevor, for making Moonseeker the perfect place to stay. It has been a pleasure and delight to spend time in such a lovely cottage. I really appreciated the thoughtfulnes that went into making me feel so welcome on my first day. I couldn't have chosen a better base to explore Devon and Cornwall and coming "home" at the end of each day has truly been a pleasure. I will have no hesitation in highly recommending Moonseeker to friends I know will appreciate the work that has gone into making the cottage so very comfortable, and who will enjoy all the area has to offer..
19th May 2017 - (Moonseeker) What a beautiful cottage! Moonseeker exceeded our expectations and we had such a relaxing stay - which is just what we needed. We had a lovely welcome from Nicky with the cake, wine,flowers and dog treats - an added bonus. The cottage was spotless and all the little character details are amazing. We would definitely love to return for another visit and will be recommending Moonseeker to our family and friends. PS our dogs loved their stay as much as we did!
20th May 2017 - (Dreamcatcher) Had a wonderful stay at Dreamcatcher wth my dog. A real home from home and a great base for dog training at Devon Dogs. Will definitely be coming back!
26th May 2017 - (Moonseeker) - Thank you so much Nicky, Trevor and Mum for an absolutely wonderful weeks stay in your beautiful cottage set in such peaceful surroundings. Thanks also for the flowers, wine, cake and card waiting for us on arrival - very much appreciated. We really couldn't have asked for anything more from your well equipped comfortable and homely cottage. It was just perfect for celebrating turning 21 again! The birds were so relaxing to watch and the pond wildlife was a joy to see - especially the dragonflies hatching out! Just amazing ! ....Never caught sight of the wallaby though! Our visits included National Trust's Buckfast Abbey, Drogo Castle and Lydford Gorge. We also enjoyed a wonderful day at RHS Rosemoor. There are so many places we still need to see and visit in the area so what better excuse do we need for us to return. We will no doubt be back!
27th May 2017 - (Dreamcatcher) We have had a lovely stay here at Dreamcatcher, and we have been so lucky with the weather, dare I say at times it was too hot!! The cottage is cosy and peaceful with everything in it that you could posibly want. Thank you to Nicky for all the extra treats, cake, wine, etc. We have been everywhere man!! Drove to the ranges at Okehampton and had a lovely walk on the Moor. Visited Lydford Gorge, spectacular - especially as we had so much rain before we came. Went to Chagford and then onto the Moor, cycled the Granite Way from Okehampton Station to Lydford. We can recommend Lydford House Hotel for cream teas. Then Trebarwith, Tintagel and Boscastle. On our last day we walked from Castle Drogo to Fingle Bridge and back. We can't wait for our next holiday here, Make sure you enjoy the birds in the little garden.
3rd June 2017 - (Dreamcatcher) We had such a lovely week at Dreamcatcher - home away from home! Nicky was so helpful and the cottage is immaculate. Best ever Dog friendly accommodation - too hot to try wood burner (we had lovely weather) but that and all the other touches (massive bed, cake and wine, helpful hints) make this a real 5* accommodation. We will definitely be back The walk from Castle Drogo is a must, our dog loved Simmons Park (only 7 minute drive away in Okehampton) and the beach at Sandymouth is amazing (about 45 mins drive). Lots of walks, pubs and relaxation. Thank you so much!
23rd June 2017 - (Moonseeker) Wow! what can I say...what an amazing place to stay! Moonseeker is quite simply perfect in every way, and there is not a single thing that I would change. Thank you, Nicky, for your very warm welcome and for the bottle of wine and milk, and a big thank you to your mum for the delicious cake! The cottage is stunning and spotlessly clean. We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years and this is without a doubt the cleanest, most well equipped and beautifully furnished cottage we have ever stayed in ....our absolute favourite by a country mile!! The attention to detail is incredible - everything has been thought of and the layout is perfect - especially great for the dogs!! The location is superb too - great for walking and exploring. Favourite place to eat: The Oxenham Arms, South Zeal and The New Inn, Sampford Courtenay. Favourite day out: Lydford Gorge. PS - the bed is to die for, we have never slept so well!!
14th July 2017 - (Dreamcatcher) Nice dreams are difficult to catch or remember - but we will always remember Dreamcatcher, it's unique homely feel, peace and tranquility in abundance. Perfect for a break from the world outside. The warm welcome from Nicky was great, made us feel at home on arrival. Must say many thanks for the kind thoughts, bottle of wine, cake & roses. We love the cottage and the garden. Please continue to encourage wildlife in the form of birds. The sunken garden took my breath away.
9th September 2017 (Dreamcatcher) Had a great time on our first visit to Devon. Dreamcatcher is a lovely place to stay and thanks Nicky for making us feel so welcome. The beach at Bude was so nice and we had some fantastic walks on the cliff tops with spectacular views. Lots of local walks with our Jack Russell, which is her first holiday and she has had a wonderful time. Abbeyford Woods was a great adventure for her. Watching the birds in the garden was truly relaxing. Weather was mixed but didn't stop us having a great holiday and the cottage was a perfect base to come home to. We will truly look forward to staying at Dreamcatcher again.
30th September 2017 (Dreamcatcher) We have been to Devon many times and adore it, and one day may move here! Dreamcatcher is everything we look for in a holiday let and nothing let us down. It was 'Perfect'. Nicky was a fab host (thanks Nicky's mum for the cake!). Our dog is a seasoned traveller and says it was perfect also - woof!! I even did some yoga in the loft room! Would recommend The New Inn, very friendly (and dog friendly) food good pub standard.
25th October 2017 (Dreamcatcher) Although wet for 3 days we loved walking on the moors and coming back to a lovely warm and peaceful cottage. We have found plenty to do all week and have cycled the Granite Way, and been over to Bideford. Instow beach was lovely and even the sun came out. The birds visiting the feeder have been great entertainment and such a variety of birds. The Sparrow Hawk swooped in for his tea, but went away hungry. It's been a get away from the hustle and bustle week and we've both enjoyed our stay. Thank you for the welcome wine and cake and the store of sunflower seeds for our feathered friends.
27 October 2017 (Moonseeker) 2 cottages per year for 19 years, this has surpassed them all without doubt. Normally you get a few things ok, and the rest not, but this is perfect in everyway. Great hosts, grounds, furniture, TV, kitchen, beds, en-suites, everything was just lovely. A project well done, although I suspect very hard work, but well worth it, a beautiful job, well done!
