“Owlacombe Mill”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I booked Owlacombe Mill for a 2 night escape for my other halves birthday and it met and exceeded all my expectations. Finding the perfect retreat for 2 without the usual dated interior took me some time but Owlacombe came up trumps. Inside the cottage is modern yet cosy with all the finishing touches including freshly baked scones and a bottle of wine on arrival. The attention to detail is fantastic, everything from the welcome scones, bread, eggs etc to a stocked bookshelf, cards, games and even a picnic hamper if you need it. We saw more than our fair share of rain this weekend but we still managed to enjoy it with a few DVDs in front of the fire (logs are provided and just when we thought we'd run out the box had been topped up without us even asking!) and a night out at the superb gastro pub, the New Inn within walking distance. The little village of Roborough is lovely and the pace of life so relaxed that as usual, we never want to leave Devon! Thank you Carol and Gareth for a lovely escape, we hope to be back soon .

“The perfect escape!”
Reviewed December 21, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I live in London and was looking for a short 'escape' from the city for me and my partner.
We were greeted with warm scones from the oven with clotted cream and jam and a lovely bottle of red wine! Both Carol and Gareth were friendly, welcoming and helpful.
The cottage was excellently presented, the bed especially comfortable with a perfect view over green rolling hills, the log burner created a warm and romantic atmosphere.
Thank you again for an amazing and relaxing stay, we look forward to being there again soon.

“Rural delight in Devon”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Can recommend this cottage for its location, comfort and decor, and the genuine hospitality of the owners.

Sleep in great comfort to the sound of water in the mill stream, all amenities available with style and lovely walks either around the Woodland Trust acreage or to the New Inn for a good range of beers and open fire.

Our hosts made this visit memorable and we cannot return soon enough.

My partner organised a surprise weekend at Owlacombe Mill and it was fabulous - The location is beautiful, a perfect secret getaway, and the property itself is stunning and well equipped. Not to mention the breakfast hamper that was delicious! I would highly recommend this property if you want to completely get away for some peace and quiet. Thank you Carol and Gareth for a lovely stay and see you soon!
