Perfect cottage retreat

The previous reviewer has given a thorough, accurate account of Lucy's and so there isn't much more to add other than to say we had a lovely weeks stay in May 2012 and very much hope to return this year. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this as a lovely place to stay in a picturesque village.

A perfect and cosy bolt hole for two people

This is the first opportunity I have had to review Lucy's as it has only recently been available to review on Trip Advisor. My wife and I have stayed at Lucy's several times since our honeymoon there in 1998, with the most recent stay being in March 2012.

To say that Lucy's is "cosy" is an understatement; it sits towards the bottom of Talland Hill in an elevated position with great views from both bedroom and sitting room windows. There's an entrance porch, which leads directly into the very comfortable sitting room complete with colour TV, DVD player, easy chairs, a good selection of table games and books and the fireplace. To the side is a table and chairs, and this leads to the galley-style kitchen complete with full sized cooker, washing machine, microwave, toaster, electric kettle and a full set of crockery, cutlery and utensils.

The double bedroom is opposite the kitchen and is even cosier than the sitting room, with lots of storage space. The bathroom sits at the end of the kitchen, accessed via a couple of steps down and is finished to the highest standards, with full sized tub, shower, basin and WC.

There's no mains gas in the village so all is powered with electricity, this being provided by a £1 pay meter in the front porch. The last time we stayed here it was cold outside and we had the storage heaters on every night but the meter was very reasonable to use and we didn't spend that much on staying warm, cooking, showering, and so on. Some places hike the fuel prices up to an unreasonable level, almost as a "second price for the rental period" but this is not the case with Lucy's.

There is a patio area that is reached via a set of outside steps from the front door and the views from here are spectacular. There is a set aside parking area in the Coombs which is included in the rates, this being a 6-7 minute stroll from the cottage.

Lucy's has a guest book which we always read and always add to; in all the years we have been staying here, I don't ever recall reading even one negative comment about the accommodation, in fact, everyone who stays here seems as enamoured with the place as we always do.

As you might expect, Lucy's is a no smoking cottage, and no pets. It looks after two people more than adequately, in warmth and comfort and is just a couple of minutes walk from the village pubs and restaurants.

We hope to return again soon, as Lucy's is without a doubt the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in.
