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!
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!
29 December 2017 (Dreamcatcher) We ARE back! We are here again for the second time. The cottage is as wonderful as we remember. Nikki is such a brilliant host that staying in is as comfortable as ever, with the woodburner and the Xmas cake. The 4-legged members had a fantastic time as usual in Abbeyford Woods. We visited even further places this time, but coming back to this fantastic cottage is always something to look forward to everyday. What else can we say, but we'll be back sooner than you think! Many thanks to Nikki and family for giving us such a wonderful Xmas break. All the best to an even more successful 2018.
20 January 2018 (Dreamcatcher) We've had a thoroughly good time during our week in Devon. We've taken the dog for long walks on Dartmoor where he's had a whale of a time. Our weather has been awful but it is January after all! We've loved our stay at the cottage, Nicky was very welcoming and the wine and cake was thoughtful and enjoyable. The cottage is lovely and was above our expectations, a comfy bed and gorgeous log burner. It was also a bonus to look at the night sky and see thousands of stars. Brilliant.
15th February 2018 (Moonseeker) We have had the most fabulous time here at Moonseeker, thank you so much! The welcome we had was the best we've ever had at a cottage - and the gorgeous cake, wine and flowers were so lovely and thoughtful. There are so many wonderful details in the cottage - books in every room, a selection of DVD's and games, blankets on the chairs - we had everything we needed and more!
We had a lovely time exploring the area, the guidebooks were so helpful. We've had such a relaxing time in this beautiful cottage - we didn't want to leave and will definitely recommend to friends. We can't wait to come back!
