Third time at Quack Cottage with our two dogs. Every time has been great and thus week didn't disappoint. No wifi and TV is manor from heaven and playing cricket in the garden (yes it's that big) takes me bag to childhood. Great to see our dogs roam free and our daughter playing with the ducks and chickens and talking to other kids (as opposed to texting).
Great location great holiday....very chilled out!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Rediscover what life is all about as you relax and unwind in one of our five comfy Watermill Cottages in the tranquil coastal Gara Valley, Slapton, Nr Dartmouth in Devon. Our dog friendly historic old stone cottages offer you your own private garden or patio with bbq & outdoor furniture, and are perfect if you want to get away from it all... ...a rural retreat for eco-friendly breaks too. If you're interested in being self sufficient, we generate electricity from a water turbine, grow our own meat and veg, and press our own apples for juice & cider on a smallholding on 13+ secret acres near the sea. The cottages are tastefully converted from the former mill building, barns & workers’ cottages round the old mill-house, built in the 1750s. Each is individual in decor yet offers you spacious, comfortable accommodation, a modern fitted kitchen (with washing machine, microwave, electric oven or range, kettle, toaster, fridge-freezer), bathrooms with baths and showers. Walks from your cottage door and beyond on green lanes, a 24 hour wildlife channel right outside your window. Woods, meadows, shared lawns, & a shallow stream to enjoy - a haven of peace and tranquility almost untouched by the modern world. Holidays like they used to be ... We welcome free-range kids and well-behaved dogs. ... more less
