“Wonderful place, wonderful hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

We had a wonderful stay; a magical place, bathed in warm English sunshine when we were there and we could lounge luxuriously by the pool and drink cocktails provided by Maureen. A little piece of English heaven, fantastic rooms, all the privacy you need and an incredibly helpful team totally focussed on making your stay exceptional. This place is above and beyond and we can recommend it unreservedly. Wayne

Maureen went out of her way to ensure that our stay at Tor Cottage was totally hassle free - she had even booked us into the restaurants that she thought would suit us - and she was right!!
We both enjoyed ourselves enormously and are definite Tor Cottage fans. We stayed in the Country Craftsman room and found it really comfortable, beautifully furnished and extremely quiet. The location is perfect for people wanting to 'get away from it all' - set down a tiny private road...far from the madding crowd! Right on the edge of Dartmoor...definitely fulfilled and exceeded all our expectations.

We arrived to freshly baked scones for our Devonshire cream teas (or a glass of wine if we preferred) and the friendliest of welcomes from Maureen and Vince (the loveliest Retriever you'll meet). Laughing Waters was fantastic with it's private woodland walk and stream. We saw Deer, Rabbits, Pheasants etc...The breakfasts were amazing and the staff couldnt do enough for you without ever being intrusive. My partner and I are extremely picky about where we stay and couldn't recommend Tor Cottage highly enough. Many thanks to Maureen and her team.

Beautiful comfortably furnished garden room with extravagent breakfasts and wonderfully friendly Maureen and staff. A quiet paradise in 28 acres of unspoilt contryside to enjoy.
Coffe and cake to welcome you and Vince the dog to spoil. You won't find anywhere better!

Room Tip: All are good, Laughing waters is 100 yds away.

Found this place to be relaxing, tranquil and just what myself and partner needed. We stayed in Laughing Waters which has a lovely verander with rocking chair, its own walk, bbq area and plenty of space to relax in. Maureen and her team were really helpful with recommending and booking local restaurants, suggesting nearby days out and even sharing the recipes for the AMAZING bircher muesli which made up the first course of the lovely breakfasts. The pool was warm enough to swim in even in the rain. If you are looking for an escape, this is it.

Room Tip: If you want to get away from people, Laughing Waters is the place to be, although all of the accommo...

My partner and i stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful relaxing time. Nothing was too much trouble for Maureen and her helpful staff - including making sure we had booked somewhere nice for supper each night (best for us was the Harris Arms, which had an exceptional wine list!). Great breakfast, loads of fresh fruit, homemade muesli etc as well as a full cooked breakfast, plenty of brochures laid out to hlep us decide on outings. The pool was lovely to sit by and read a book (and have a swim as well of course). It is rare to be somewhere where there is no traffic noise, only birdsong! We stayed in the art deco room - immaculate, spacious, had everything we could want.

Lovely accommodation in a beautiful and tranquil location. The accommodation was wonderful with lots of attention to detail. Loved having a little hospitality area with a fridge, crockery etc so we could keep wine chilled and have snacks on our private patio outside.
Maureen and her staff go out of their way to make the stay special. Enjoyed making friends with Vince, the owner's guide dog, and taking him for morning walks in the surrounding woodlands. We only live about 25 mins away but we will be back as often as we can.
