“Perfect Peace & Relaxation”
Reviewed July 3, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

people found this review helpful

It has all been said before in these reviews but so many people cannot be wrong and the praise given is quite justified. Rose Cottage provides everything you could possibly want for a very relaxing and peaceful retreat from the real world to unwind and enjoy the quiet and the exceptionally beautiful Devon countryside.

The cottage is private with it's own patio but also very much part of the small complex which is made up of the farmhouse and two other lets. The accommodation is very clean and exceptionally well equipped and the bedding is fresh and the mattress comfortable. The welcome hamper is exceptional and was very much appreciated. The bathroom is modern and although the shower is not the most powerful in the world the water was hot and plentiful. Piers, the owner, and Sue his wife were away when we arrived but everything was ready for us and his instructions on driving to the cottage were spot on. I would very strongly advise that you follow Pier's directions to the letter if visiting Cotmore Farm, deviate from his route and you will find yourself in roads barely wide enough for a bicycle let alone a car!

We spent a lot of time walking in the area and very much enjoyed the half hour wander, along narrow lanes, from the cottage into Beesands where we enjoyed a much needed pint at "The Cricket" a fabulous fish and chip supper at "The Brittania" where you can have a sit down meal or a take away, seriously excellent food and lovely friendly staff. If you are feeling energetic turn off the road at Beeson and follow the marked footpath to Torcross and then follow the sea path back into Beesands. The footpath from Beesands out to the lighthouse at Start Point is also not to be missed and not nearly as tough as you might think.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rose Cottage and congratulate Piers and Sue who provide a lovely holiday opportunity and who have developed the happy knack of always being available when you want them but never there when you are enjoying the peace and quiet. Animal lovers especially will have a great time with so many different varieties of birds around, I had never seen a Stonechat before, farm animals of all sorts and we saw seals and dolphins from the beach and of course the adorable Jack, we really miss him!

“Rose Cottage a must when visiting South Devon”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We received a very warm welcome after a very wet drive. Rose Cottage has been beautifully renovated and offers every amenity required, including a log burner for chilly evenings. The courtyard garden is relaxing to have meals or just enjoy the scenery. Cotmore Farm is a lovely environment to stay with a variety of very content farm animals. The owners, Sue and Piers, couldn't be more welcoming and helpful, and indeed we found the whole community incrsedibly friendly. There is a lot to do in the area with easy access to coastal walks and loads of beaches, Dartmoor and Kingsbridge Estuary.

“Lovely cottage with all amenities”
Reviewed June 11, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A well equipped cottage with everything you could want for a relaxing few days away from work and busy life. A farm with pigs and newly born piglets, horses, chickens and geese and Jack the dog. Our hosts were nearby but we had a private garden, an ideal place for bird watching. A trip to Gara Rock beach only six miles away a real gem , fantastic views and lovely beach, pick a sunny day, you will not be disappointed. We will return again. Thank you to our hosts.

“Delightful cottage, well equipped.”
Reviewed June 7, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We only managed to spare a few days away, but wish it could have been more! This delightful cottage is set in a farm with 2 other lets (a barn and another cottage but all relatively private) tucked away down a quiet lane, but within easy reach of beautiful coastal walks and amenities.
Well equipped cottage, friendly hosts who were to hand when needed, yet left us alone to enjoy the peace and tranquillity.
Thoroughly recommended to those who want a quiet escape to a beautiful area of the Devon countryside, with the sea not far away.
The tasty hamper was a pleasant surprise!

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed June 2, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Rose cottage at Cotmore Farm provided the perfect getaway for my partner and I.

Piers and Sue provided a warm welcome when we arrived and the hamper of local food and drink was a lovely touch.

The rooms were nicely decorated and provided everything we needed for the our stay. The garden was a good size and provided great entertainment watching the sparrows squabbling on the bird feeders.

The weather was superb during our stay and the location is perfect for visiting Salcombe, Dartmouth and Totnes.

We would return in a heartbeat and explore more of this lovely area.

“Lovely cottage in a lovely farm in a lovely part of the world!”
Reviewed April 23, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This cottage is part of a small complex of rentals in the midst of a picturesque, family-owned farm with handful of sheep (and I thoroughly recommend visiting in the lambing season), a few pigs and wandering geese and chickens, plus some very friendly horses in the stables. The family owners are welcoming, happy to chat but equally happy to leave you to it as you wander around the farm and interact with the animals. Oh, and their dog, Jack, is just lovely. The cottage itself is a one-floor extension of the main building with its own walled garden that gives a sense of separation from the farm. The garden is small but lovely, with seating and barbecue facilities. The cottage is tastefully and cosily done out, with a modern and unfussy kitchen lounge with little TV/DVD combo (wi-fi internet's also available), and heated by a cast-iron wood burner (there's something terribly satisfying in collecting the wood and keeping the fire going!). The bedroom with its double bed is comfortable and of a decent size, and the adjacent shower room is clean and modern. The farm is superbly located for some delightful beaches and spectacular cliff walks. All in all, a wonderfully relaxing cottage break in the countryside, and a definite to visit again.
