5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We arrived a few days before the new owners Paul and Jan took over. They were brilliant - on arrival they discovered the DVD player and washing machine was faulty. They offered to do our washing and provided us with a replacement DVD player. They even gave us a bottle of wine as an apology.

The cottage was cosy, but was big enough for 2 adults and children. The swimming pool was brilliant and the playground great for small children. The kids loved the chickens.

Lustleigh was very beautiful. There was so much to do in this part of Devon. We would definitely return and would love to see how Paul and Jan's plans have developed.

Management response:

Many thanks for our review of Pond view, we are delighted to hear that Paul and Jan made such a good start in taking over the property, it sounds like you were very well looked after. Lustleigh is indeed a beautiful place to stay and perfect for exploring Dartmoor and beyond. more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

I booked my xmas holiday rather late and lucky I found this pond view is still available for 6 days between xmas and new year. We were really happy with our stay in this lovely small cottage house. The house is small as expected, but very cosy. It is well equipped with everything you possibly needed. We have two very young children with us and we ended up to cooking almost every day during our stay and the facility was excellent. The owner was very welcoming and made us feel like home. The house is in the middle of the farm, so it has chicken, sheep, house, etc. My daughter really enjoyed to collect eggs each morning. The game room has many things for us to play. The swimming pool was nice though we didn't have chance to use it. We had excellent holiday there and we would love to go back there again sometimes in future. more

Management response:

Many thanks for you kind comments and great review of Pond view. It sounds like you found real gem for your Christmas break with facilities catering for all your needs. We are so glad that you were made to feel welcome by the owners and that the children had such fun around the animals. We look forward to welcoming you... more
