We have tried to avoid self catering cottages where the owners were in evidence, but Rose Cottage sounded so ideal for us (seniors) that we decided to give it a go.

The cottage was beautifully set out, lovely modern kitchen and sitting room combined with a gorgeous wood burner that provided us with the heading above! Situated in lovely scenery, and ideally enclosed garden for the dog plus plenty of walking from the cottage gate through the farm. Also we were privileged to meet Hermione and her delightful 5 piglets ina field by the garden, Trixie our dog was transfixed by them, watching by the gate, and even from the french doors when inside!

Piers and Sue were lovely friendly folk and we instantly felt comfortable and our slight fears about owners were absolutely dispelled! A really great place if one wants peace and quiet with comfort and marvellous for two people.

Rose cottage is set in a great location and has everything you need for a getaway holiday. It is very well presented, clean and modern with a secluded garden/patio area which was ideal for our pets. Piers was very helpful, although we had everything we needed including a welcome pack of locally sourced goodies. The cottage is ideally situated for visitning many nearby towns and cities. Slapton Ley, Torcross, Blackpool Sands and Beesands (The Cricketer pub) are all very close by and certainly worth visiting. Also worth a visit is the Chilli Farm in Loddiswell, and if you like chilli! try the chocolate

“Rose Cottage - A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Thank you Piers and Sue for a wonderful holiday. Exceptional, well appointed and very clean accommodation that has been renovated to a very high standard with quality internal fixtures and fittings but still retaining charm and character. Lovely setting with a private garden and BBQ, that we made good use of thanks to the glorious weather.
Ideally situated for exploring the beautiful South Hams countryside. During the week we visited Beesands, Start Point, Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe - all a short drive/walk away and well worth a visit. Also handy for visiting Totnes, with its interesting small independent shops.
Good local eating at The Church House and Tradesmans Arms in Stokenham. A little further afield, The Watermans Arms at Bow Bridge near Totnes is worth a visit for its location, we sat and had an excellent meal next to the creek.
We would thoroughly recommend Rose Cottage for a couples holiday and look forward to returning.

We stayed in Rose Cottage for a week in June and it surpassed our expectations. The location is great; very quiet and relaxing but not far from Kingsbridge or the many surrounding villages, pubs and beaches. Not that you really need to leave the cottage all that often as the cottage is well kitted out.The owners were very welcoming and helpful and we would definitely recommend it for anyone wanting a relaxing break in the South Hams.

This is a truely relaxing spot for a holiday - the cottage is excellently kitted out. The owners are always on hand for any help or information you need. A real home from home feel with your own garden to relax in at the end of the day. Many thanks for a wonderful stay!
