My friends and I rent a cottage about once a year and have done so since the 90's - its an opportunity for old school friends to meet up now that our busy lives have propelled us to various parts of the country (and in one case, Eastern Europe). As such, this time is particularly precious and the choice of location and cottage important. Our recent stay here was perfect. The Haybarton cottage was delightful, impeccably appointed (charming original rustic features married with all the modern comforts of home) beautifully located and the wonderfully warm welcome from Richard and Patsy confirmed we had made the right choice. This was, by a country mile, the best cottage break we have ever taken and I can't recommend it enough to anyone considering a comfortable country break in England. Words simply don't do justice to the views of the river valley flanked by beautiful hills. It is simply impossible to pick one thing we liked best. It was all fantastic! We are definately returning.

We stayed in Cowbyre Cottage here, one of two cottages adjoining the owners parents home in the delightful village of Upottery. The cottage has three bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, a living and dining area with a great wood burner and a well equipped kitchen. The cottage is finished to a high standard and is warm and comfy and spotlessly clean. Views from the cottage are out to the extensive grounds and adjoining countryside which is really beautiful. Great base to explore this beautiful area and a pub within 10 minutes easy walk, even in the dark (although torch advisable!). Richard and Patsy, the owners parents make you very welcome and are on hand should you need any help/advice. A welcome pack including local produce and a treat for our dog was much appreciated.
