“Lovely Little Apartment”
Reviewed April 29, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Located about 6 miles from Tavistock and equidistant from Launceston, the location of this little self contained apartment is good for exploring various tourist attractions.
The apartment itself has obviously been redecorated and has fitted carpet throughout. (Which looks good now but owners might come to regret the very light beige colour as it becomes more used!!) The sofa and armchair are also new.
Sarah, the proprietor told us that refurbishmeant is ongoing and indeed, as requested, we left a few suggestions as to how it might be further improved.
As usual, the main question is: Would we stop there again? And the answer is yes. Indeed, if we were in that area again, it would be a first choice as it would be interesting to see how the owners have improved it further.

“Fell a long way short of expectations!”

Property is at the rear of the church in a lovely Devon village. We pulled up at the Coach House that was next to a beautiful stone rectory. Stunning location and we couldn't believe our luck.

We were met by the owner who showed us in and how to work the heating. Had a quick look round and noticed that there wasn't any milk. Owner did offer to bring some from house but we declined as we were going to shops anyway.

Location is lovely and when heating comes on, it is warm. They are the positives.

I don't know where to begin. Undoubtedly I will get a response from the owner re: should have bought the issues up at the time but I will leave the reader to judge if they could have been fixed quickly.

This place should be lovely but it was dated; peeling and cracked paint; old, well worn, uncomfortable furniture; little regard to comfort of the guests. Main problems are:
No handwash / soap in bathroom - nearest supermarket is 20 minutes away.
No welcome tray / milk provided - see above comment about time to shop.
Mattress is cheap and very hard.
Pillows are old and very thin. There were 2 each but felt like less than 1.
Bedding was old and of poor quality.
There was no wardrobe - some broken hangers on back of door.
Apart from 1 small side table at side of bed, there was no other furniture in the bedroom - see photos.
Bathroom shower attachment came on when it shouldn't.
Bathroom needed a good clean.
Kitchen worksurface is wood. Lots of marks and sticky. Needs rubbing down and reoiling to keep It hygienic.
No real oven - just a plug in electric thing.
From the location, a welcome tray / early warning to call at shop on the way would be welcome.
Very low, uncomfortable sofas. They have no legs.
TV sound keeps coming and going.
2 windows in lounge with no curtains.
Lots of peeling paint, cracks in paint and dirt in the corners.
Sorry owners that I have not complied with your request to leave a positive review. I don't normally leave poor reviews but it was so disappointing. We a good clean, redecoration, new bedding and towels, better furniture and nicer fixtures this place could be fantastic. There are enough holiday accommodation TV programmes on that should give owners ideas.
Such a shame. We feel like we have been robbed!

Very clean and comfortable apartment in a lovely quiet setting. Well equipped but could do with a bit of updating in places as a bit worn. Only complaint, had to wash hair with a plastic jug!!!

“Lovely apartment- great location”
Reviewed December 1, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We booked a few nights away and this was a wonderful find. A cosy apartment, photos do not do it justice as the kitchen is so sweet- has everything you need a make supper or breakfast. Excellent wifi connection. Easy parking. Our doodles loved the garden. Near to the moors and lovely town of Tavistock- would recommend.

“Perfect stopover”
Reviewed November 15, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We booked The Coach House for 3 nights in November whilst visiting friends/family in the area. We had no problems finding the property and received a friendly greeting despite us not having given any indication of what time we would be arriving.
We had looked at many properties around the Tavistock area and The Coach House was by far the cheapest and my expectations weren't high because of this. However, the apartment was clean and had everything we needed for a few nights. A selection of games and DVDs were available to use and the kitchen had all the basics required including a slow cooker. The oven was small but worked efficiently.
The Edgcumbe Arms was a short walk away and was cosy to have a few drinks in the evening in front of the fire.
The only issue I would note is that the hot water did not last long enough so we could only have shallow baths.
Overall, considering the price, this property is perfect for short stays and we were very comfortable there.

“A Regrettable Experience”
Reviewed July 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were off to a bad start when we couldn't find The Coach House! It took us two very stressful hours looking for our accommodation, only to discover we had actually been outside the premises early in our search.The sign on the gate said The Old Vicarage but as we were looking for The Coach House, thought we had the wrong establishment .I don't know if this is the owners fault or Trip Advisor, but suggest the more appropriate information should read "The Coach House at The Old Vicarage" .
Then when we finally got inside our accommodation, we were disappointed to find the quality was substandard.The carpet needed cleaning and the lounge suite needed to be sent to the rubbish tip--when sat on, it almost hit the floor!The linen on the bed was poor quality and the bath towels were hard, stained and smelly.The kitchen utensils were also inferior or non existent!
This unit has the potential to be something lovely, but we suggest the owners need to go and stay in some other similar establishments to see how it's done, as this was the only negative experience we had during our six weeks of such places in the UK.
Also, a folder containing information on how to use appliances, places of interest in the area, and local restaurants would be helpful.
