“Fabulous family holiday!”
Reviewed August 7, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Wow, what a fabulous spacious cottage with a home from home feel, everything you could think of needing comes in this cottage, every tiny detail has really been thought of. We stayed here as a family of 10 with 2 dogs from 29th July - 5th August as a gift to my grandparents to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary. On arrival the tea, coffee, milk biscuit, cava and flowers were a lovely touch after a long day traveling. Spacious and clean inside, enough space to all be able to be together in one room but enough room to be able to have a bit of your own space too when you needed it. Beds were lovely and comfortable. The grounds were breathtaking and the play house and swings went down a treat with my 3 year old daughter. So peaceful to sit outside and hear nothing but the nature around. Lots to do just a cars journey away and there is plenty of information inside the cottage to give you so many ideas for the week. Simon was lovely and friendly and took the Time to chat and show us the baby barn owls that were only a few weeks us whilst they were feeding which was absolutely amazing. Thank you for letting us stay and being able to spend some quality time all together in one place! Highly recommend a stay in oak cottage.

“Space for 12 in charming home and gardens”
Reviewed August 1, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We were visiting from the US and found Oak Cottage to be a lovely, characterful and comfortable property that easily holds 12. Beautiful both inside and out with great space for spreading out and everything you could want for a great stay. Great location from which to see lovely South Devon. We loved the river cruise in Dartmouth and the cliff walk around Start Point Lighthouse is exquisite. The home is meticulously maintained and the grounds have something for everyone. Can't wait to return!

person found this review helpful

Oak Cottage is a fabulous cottage set in a courtyard in the grounds of a country house. The owners have thought of absolutely everything that a group of up to 12 could wish for. Comfortable, well equipped with absolutely everything to a very high standard. The surrounding gardens are beautiful and the area very quiet. The nearest beach, Slapton Sands in a great stretch of shingle beach with a nature reserve behind. With a very acceptable welcome pack on arrival and the most attentive and interesting caretaker you could wish for, we had really great week here.
Thank you.

Thank you so much Pauline for a lovely review of Oak Cottage. We are delighted that you all had a fabulous time in Devon and found everything you needed at the cottage - it was lovely to get an email from you on your first evening saying how happy you were with the cottage! I know you celebrated a family 60th in style with a BBQ for 18 in the garden which is fantastic. Glad Simon (the caretaker) was able to show you the barn owls he breeds and provide lots of local info - he is a gem!
We really hope to welcome you back to Oak sometime in the future. Best wishes, Jude.

“Great accommodation for a large group visiting South Devon”
Reviewed June 5, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Oak Cottage at Buckland Court is a great place for a large group of people wishing to explore the beautiful South Hams area of Devon.
We were a group made up of three totally outnumbered mums and eight children, who ranged in age from 6 to 14 years.
There was plenty to keep them all occupied at the cottage, from exploring the very large garden to playing pool or racing cars on the PlayStation.
The cottage is extremely well equipped and very comfortable.
The coast is just a few minutes drive away along beautiful country roads. There are stunning beaches to visit, which can be reached if walking along the costal path. However, the cottage is also very close to Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Totnes and Salcombe, where you will find some lovely shops and restaurants. From these towns you may take many different boat trips either along the coast or up the estuaries. We hired two small motor boats in Dittisham and explored the River Dart.
The holiday was great fun and we all had a wonderful time. Hopefully, we will be able to arrange a friends reunion at Oak Cottage again sometime in the future. There is still so much of South Devon to explore!

Hi Catherine,
Thank you very much for a great review - I think you have covered just about everything and we are so pleased that the cottage space and facilities worked well for your group and you made the most of the beautiful South Hams area of Devon. I used to do exactly the same when my boys were younger with other mums and kids - they often entertain themselves but it is hard work nontheless! It is lovely to come home feeling that everyone has had a great time though.
Motor boats up the Dart sounds a great idea, I might try it later this month when I am looking forward to a relaxing few days in Devon! We look forward to having you all back sometime for some more Devon exploring! Best wishes, Jude

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!
