“The cottage, its amenities, Quentin and Tracey's welcome - all top notch.”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We viewed both Springfield Cottage website and Google Earth so we had a fair idea of what to expect, but the actuality surpassed all our expectations. We collected the keys from Quentin who took us on an introductory tour and it was plain to see that their appreciation of quality and attention to detail were faultless.
With woodland walks on the doorstep, Dartmoor National Park just around the corner and the rest of Devon a car ride away, there is just so much you can do!
We stayed at the end of October and though we did not need to augment the excellent central heating, we lit the wood burner which added that final feeling of well being.
We look forward to re visiting during the summer months, and thank Quentin & Tracey for making us so very welcome to their historic Devon longhouse.

“Amazing longhouse for relaxing break”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Fantastic cottage with great access to cycling routes and countryside. After 3 months non-stop in London it was exactly what we needed. Quentin was a great host and kept us well stocked with coffees (which we went through a lot of) BBQ'd every night and cycled by day.

The reviews above have said it all and even stolen my jokes about drinking the coffee machine dry and making pasta. Cracking place to stay!

“Everything you could need and wish for at a beautiful cottage.”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We came across this beautiful cottage by chance and stayed for a few days extending our holiday. It could not have been a more memorable last few days and really made our holiday.

Springfield is the most stunning place both inside and also the gardens. Quentin and Tracey are the perfect hosts and could not have done any more to make our stay better.

The setting in Dartmoor National Park also makes it so well located to explore the beautiful surroundings.

The finishing touches and lovely decor make it the most relaxing escape. We've already told all our friends about it and can't wait to come back again as soon as we can....

Thanks so much,
Ian and Jane

A very homely feel from the moment you enter the cottage,yet all the fixtures, fittings and kitchenware are all 5 star, there is even a pasta machine to make your own pasta ,the beds are so comfy we all wanted to bring them home,The garden is outstanding as it has a wide variety of plants and areas to sit in and even has fish in the pond, The local area is outstanding with Bovey Tracey a lovely village closeby.Torquay, Dartmouth ,Dawlish and Salcombe a short drive away. Would not hesitate to rebook.highly recommend.

“Simply superb”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We loved our time at Springfield Cottage from the moment we arrived we felt at home but with hotel style surroundings. The welcome basket contained everything we could have wanted and more! The bed was the comfiest we have ever slept in and the shower was superb. The cottage garden was beautiful and relaxing with easy access to Dartmoor and the coast. We can't recommended this holiday home enough. We are looking forward to going back very soon. Highly recommended.
