Oak Cottage at Buckland Court is a very well equipped five bedroom cottage in an ideal location to explore South Devon. The kitchen diner and living room area's are great for the centre of activity for large family get together's. The cottage is set in a beautiful area with a lovely garden behind the lower cottages. The pool/ table tennis table provided a good addition for entertainment. The cottage was prepared for our arrival to a good standard with milk, shortbread, Cava and flowers a lovely touch. We had a great week, Thankyou.

“Spacious, with room for social and solo activities at the same time.”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We rented the cottage for a family celebration and so as well as the 12 staying, there are visitors too. Everyone enjoyed the gardens, with the little ones especially liking the playhouse and the ducks. The caretaker, Simon, was very helpful and informative, especially about the incubation of ducks. My granddaughters got to see newly hatched chicks. The kitchen was great. Dishwasher, washer and dryer were kept busy. Together with comfy beds, who could ask for more!

Liked best: Kitchen, two living areas, plenty of bathrooms.
Liked least: The lanes to access the cottage took some getting used to and seeing grass growing out of the middle of one of the local roads was unnerving, but one gets used to it!

“Fabulous cottage”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

As a 3 family group of friends 12 in total we usually stay in separate accomadation, and since finding the little gem that is oak cottage we now struggle to find anything even close.
Second time we have stayed now and everyone throughly enjoyed our holiday and no doubt we shall return again. Only reason for the location score is the lanes do get a bit narrow in places which you do get use to.

Thank you very much Jason, we were delighted that the space and versatility of Oak Cottage works so well for your group and that you chose to come back for the second year running. You are right about the lanes but that is part of the charm of Devon and as you say you do get used to them - certainly makes you focus on what's up ahead! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. With kindest regards, Jude.

“Completely brilliant!!”
Reviewed May 1, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Oak Cottage was completely and utterly brilliant! Everything was spotlessly clean and tidy. Plenty of room for a party of ten to individually find a space to chill. Kitchen/dinning area was really spacious, modern and so well equipped that at times it was like being in my own kitchen, but nicer! Nothing was too much trouble for Simon, the resident caretaker who was extremely welcoming. Bedrooms were very comfortable....hundred times better than many 4 or 5 star hotels; ample comfy seating in the sitting room and the games room was situated perfectly as it meant that everyone interacted and contributed to meal time prep as well as being able to enjoy a game or two of table tennis or pool. Thank you so much!

What a brilliant review - we are delighted that the cottage is so appreciated by our guests, we have tried hard to think of everything that will make it work for large groups both getting together but also finding some space! We have had some lovely reviews and it is so rewarding to hear guests love the house we love and have had a brilliant time there. Thank you and please come back any time!

“A great long weekend in a lovely place”

The recent updates to this property have made this lovely place even lovelier. I last stayed here in 2014 and the new kitchen and refurbished bathrooms are the icing on the cake of this comfortable, well equipped and relaxed cottage. Our group of friends had a wonderful long weekend.

“WOW! Absolutely Amazing Stay”
Reviewed April 19, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned from a fabulous stay at Oak Cottage and will definitely go back. We were a family group, the youngest being 21 and there were eleven of us. The cottage has everything you need and more. We ate in for three of the four days and there is everything you need to cater for large numbers. The kitchen area is spacious and well laid out. We loved that there were other snug areas where you could go and chill if you wanted to. The beds were so comfortable, the bathrooms modern and super clean. The pool table was a great addition, we ran a pool tournament over our stay but never got to the end of it as there was so much else to do. The location is great, we visited Salcombe, Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Totnes and Hope Cove all of which are within easy reach. Simon, the caretaker was lovely and nothing was a problem. When we got there and walked into the fabulous gardens to be met by the ducks and chickens (all very friendly) he met us and said 'welcome to paradise', he was right!
