“Heaven in Devon”
Reviewed August 29, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

What a beautiful place to stay. The Cottage is really cute, comfortable and has everything you need. Alan and Di are brilliant hosts and offer a warm welcome with a stock of food to boot. They are very helpful and are there if you need them but leave you be if you don't. I spent the first evening sitting on the rivers edge with a glass of wine and lit the chimnea with wood and firelighters all provided. It was sheer bliss and topped off with a fly by of the resident Kingfisher. Watched a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker on the bird table as I had my al fresco breakfast and took off for a woodland walk just off the doorstep. Dog friendly and Smithy had great fun in the river with dog friendly beaches 45-50 mins drive away. Loads to do locally and I can recommend the 13th Century Church in Brentor, the views are breathtaking. I can thoroughly recommend this place. It is salve for the soul.

“Peaceful”
Reviewed August 10, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed at the cottage for a week and despite the rainy weather had a beautiful cosy time. We were greeted warmly on arrival by Di and were so grateful for the lovely wine and treats they left out for us. Being able to sit by the river in the evening with the chimnea felt very special and we loved reading and chatting together up in the tree house. There were lots of love things to do and places to see nearby. We felt sad to leave such a beautiful place.

“Beautiful weekend”
Reviewed February 19, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We returned yesterday from our weekend at Love Lee Cottage and I must say it was quite exceptional! We were greeted on arrival by Alan the owner and his lovely dog and were made to feel very welcome. The cottage is small but so cosy and just right for two. Ideal distance from amenities and a very short drive to get to the moor. The grounds are beautiful and tranquil. We were particularly lucky with the weather being February and sat by the private river with a fire on the go and a bottle of wine in time for sunset. We visit Devon regularly and I must say this was definitely one of our more memorable visits. Thank you, we will definitely be coming again!

“Little fairytale place in a beautiful location”

Like something from the three little bears, wooden and cosy. This place was beautifully decked out and full of lovely little touches including the tree house outside! Great for sitting in with a cup of tea and the tasty biscuits we had gifted by the owners on our arrival. Love to come and stay again as there's so much to see and do in Dartmoor, we only scratched the surface. Thank you guys! X

“Well chosen”
Reviewed September 3, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

My wife and I chose this place more or less by chance. We were looking for a quiet base to explore Dartmoor, plus we have a dog with us.

For our walks it served as a perfect base, we managed to see a lot of Dartmoor and add trips to Exeter and Cornwall.
It is advertised as pet friendly, and pet friendly it is.
The cottage itself is great, cosy, well equipped. We loved the big bathroom, access to the big and wild garden mending with the woods around, the personal touch in the way the place is designed and equipped.

Plus we felt as welcomed guests - from the very first moment (you don't have to worry about late arrivals, the most important stuff is waiting for you) and through minor events (leaking kitchen tap).

Well done, thanks a lot!

“Cute little Devon hideaway”
Reviewed July 11, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Love-Lee cottage for a week and we were pleasantly surprised at the accommodation and it's surroundings. The web photos really don't do it justice. Lovely warm welcome for us and our two collie....access to a beautiful private garden with access to the riverside where we spent most evenings relaxing in the peaceful surroundings.
Alan and Di have built a place to be proud of.
We'd definitely choose to stay again!
