“I wish I lived at Yelfords”

person found this review helpful

Stayed here for a week with friends and children. House is spacious, well equipped and homely. We had unseasonably cold weather on the day we arrived but the lounge has a log burning fire which was very easy to use, so we enjoyed a very cosy evening.
The quality of the decor, furniture, fixtures and fittings is high throughout the house. The garden is attractive and more than big enough for children to play in.
Ghislaine and Michael were excellent hosts and very helpful. From the door we were able to walk straight up the hill behind the house to a nearby Tor and then directly out onto the moors. Dartmoor itself is stunning, and there was plenty to do and see in the local area. Nearby Chagford is a lovely little town with an excellent deli and several good places to eat.
I would wholeheartedly recommend the cottage and the location to adults and families with children old enough to go on decent walks.

Many thanks for your kind feedback. It sounds like Yelfords was absolutely perfect and that you were very well looked after by the owners. What a great location for exploring Dartmoor.

“A true home-from-home”
Reviewed January 21, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

If you like the country - walks, views, beautiful villages, tempting local shops, and appreciate someone having gone to a lot of trouble to 'think through' your needs while on holiday, this is the cottage-cum-house for you. Our family of 5 (+ 2 dogs) loved our week here. I'm almost tempted not to write this review in case i have to battle others when I book to go back!

“Third Fantastic Time at Yelfords”
Reviewed May 2, 2012 for a stay in November 2011

Great location, book taxi if you wish to drink in Village. Great cottage, lovely rooms and views . Peaceful and tranquil, close to great Moorland walks, Michael and Gislane veryelpful owners live next door, in case of any queries. Lovely wood fire for the evening. Been there 3 time and will be returning as soon as possible. Already recommended to our daughter who also thought it was great.
