“Wonderful”
Reviewed May 18, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Perfect place for a wind down! Facilities were excellent, as were the surroundings. The hosts were most engaging. The cottage was spacious, clean and welcoming, with everything thought of, including tea and coffee!
Due to a bout of illness, our sightseeing didn't quite go to plan, so we will definitely return - and make full use of the on site facilities!

“Five star experience”
Reviewed March 25, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have just returened from a 4 night break in honeysuckle cottage. It was our first as a young family. I do not normally write reviews but as downe was the best holiday rental we have used in the uk I felt obliged to comment.
The cottage was first class. The decor is traditional as fitting the barn style and beautifully done. There is total attention to detail. It was spotlessly clean and flawlessly equipped. Very family friendly, they could even happily supply us with a blender! Bed incredibly comfy, limitless supply of wood for burner.
The spa is a real added bonus and the gym impressively equipped.
The location is lovely, heartland is very beautiful and tranquil and the walk to the coast is short.
Perhaps best of all is the attitude of the owners Jeremy and Lynda and their staff Alan and Clare. They do all they can to optimise your holiday whilst respecting your privacy. We could not make our original dates due to illness and they were happy to rearrange at short notice. Alan and Clare were there to welcome us when we arrived, with the log burner lit and happy to answer questions.
All round these cottages are five star and I think good value.
We hope to return

We stayed at Honeysuckle Cottage, and from the first minute of walking into our lovely warm cottage we have been mightily impressed! Lovely little touches such as a ready made roaring fire, wine and chocolates to the very helpful Alan and Claire. We have not been disappointed in any way and will definitely be recommending this to our friends and returning next year!!

“Honeysuckle Cottage”

Downe Cottages are a group of 8, five star accommodation, from one bedroomed, up to a three bedroomed cottage catering for your every need. Alan & Clare are exceptionally helpful when approached for any assistance. We needed it to get the hang of building and lighting a superb log fire ( all kindling and logs are kept in the dry very large barn where we parked our cars) we were greeted into a warm welcoming cottage, fire lit, bottle of wine and box of chocalate on the table milk in the fridge and this was on 6th March cold afternoon. The location is superb and sunsets inspiring. The owners of this retreat have certainly made a wise choice in having Alan & Clare as their site Managers. Clare leaves each unit sparklingly clean with everything you would need at your disposal. We hope to return to this special place with friends. Thank you both.

“Fantastic place for a relaxing getaway”
Reviewed August 5, 2011 for a stay in September 2010

This would be our second time at Downe and we absolutely loved it both times. Jeremy and Lynda seem to think of everything. Set in the most idyllic surroundings on arrival we were warmly greeted, the cottages and nicely furnished and everything is catered for.

Jeremy and Lynda also provide a comprehensive guide to local places of interest and eateries and we worked our way through the extensive list (We are looking to continue working through it on our return)

We also tried to ready prepared meals which I have to say were also of an excellent quality and the breakfast baskets were also very good, Hartland, a short drive away was also very nice for the other odds and ends that you may need.

What stands out more than anything else is the absolutely warm welcome that you receive from them, they are just so accommodating and friendly and the cottages and extremely well stocked with absolutely everything you could think of.

We are definitely looking to return soon and are trying to organise for some friends to come along as well.

I would also say that the place is extremely child friendly, away from the all too familiar arcades and theme parks (although there is one not too far away (Big sheep fun I think its called)

Definitely worth a visit. Excellent!!!!!
