“Beautiful getaway house in Devon”
Reviewed May 13, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Miranda and her family are such lovely people and have a very beautiful property in a stunning part of the UK. So kind on arrival they had left bubbles and essentials in the fridge for us.

I would highly recommend the property for anyone to stay at, it is absolutely beautiful. I just loved how we had our own entrance into the property so it really felt like a hidden gem tucked away from everyone. It felt so homely, Miranda has thought of everything.

Ideal in winter and summer. A cosy wood burner downstairs to cosy up in front of and an outside terrace that can be used in the summer for drinks and a bbq or read a book and watch the world go by.

You have Dartmoor on your doorstep, Dartmouth and Plymouth are a short drive away too.

I just wish we had longer there, I will definitely go back!

“Wonderful relaxing stay”
Reviewed January 16, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Our family group of 5 stayed at the Old Rectory for four days over Christmas. Miranda and her family were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was elegant, comfortable and spacious. The bed linen and towels were luxurious and the house was extremely well equipped. There were lots of very thoughtful gestures, bubbly in the fridge on arrival, baskets of local biscuits and sweets, lovely bath products in the bathroom. The perfect environment for a relaxed family Christmas, we loved it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Old Rectory. The house and surrounding are beautiful. It is so well equipped, cozy, extremely comfortable beds, the decor is lovely and moreover; dog friendly! .... A perfect weekend. Miranda and Anthony could not be more helpful and the fizz was very welcome!

We hope to return.

“Pet friendly, warm welcome in beautiful location”
Reviewed September 4, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Lovely welcoming hosts, close by when we had a question, but not intrusive. I visited with 3 dogs; all made to feel very welcome with dog treats and a secure area just outside the front door. Lots of great walks on the doorstep. Supermarkets are 5 mins drive away in Tavistock and a good base to explore Devon. The property was just as you see in the pictures, I read a previous review which sums it up really well - very Jane Austen.

“Home with very detail thought of”
Reviewed August 21, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

A very friendly and welcoming home. The beds were very comfortable, there was an outdoor space and the kitchen was fully, fully equipped, a pity we were not able to to use it much during our short stay. Every detail is thought of. Mary Tavy was also lovely, with some great local footpaths, for Dartmoor though it was a bit westerly. We would have loved to stayed longer.

“Modern day Jane Austen”
Reviewed August 17, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Breathtaking stay - like stepping back into the gloriousness of Jane Austen with every modern amenity - what could be better! You will instantly feel at home with all the little treats Miranda leaves for you and don't even get me started on the decor which is the best I've ever seen - the sleigh bed in particular is just divine! I could have stayed a week and more as the walks around that area are some of the best in the UK and it was so lovely to have plenty of outdoor space for me and my dog who also loved her stay. You won't regret spending the few more pennies for this slice of heaven I assure you - I have already recommended to family and friends. Don't think about it - book it!
