ABOUT US

We are Katie and Rupert, a husband and wife team and we live in South Devon. Rupert is Brixham born and bred and Katie moved to Torquay in 1995, initially to study tourism but found it too hard to leave! We now have kids and we’re well and truly settled here.

 

Not only are we passionate about creating excellent holiday experiences but we also love this beautiful part of the UK where we live.  Although we have travelled to some amazing places around the world, we still believe it is hard to find a more perfect place than South Devon with its stunning coastline, rugged moorlands and spectacular countryside. We look forward to welcoming you here.

The cottage met our needs and was clean and located close to amenities. Parking was a little difficult outside the cottage but safe places were found each day only a short walk away.
All in all, a pleasurable experience and would use again.

Stayed here for over a week with my dog. It was lovely and relaxing. The welcome basket full of goodies was a delightful surprise. The Nook has everything you need and it is an easy drive to Dartmoor which we enjoyed going for long walks. Communication was easy from beginning to end and Katie communicated very quickly and made sure we were comfortable. I would stay here again!

We had five fantastic nights and superb days walking in the great countryside and on the beaches. Back for a relaxing hot tub before a drink in the local inn.

Everything was just perfect for our wind down start to the year.

We met Deb who appears to be the host..very communicative, helpful and thoughtful. We loved the cream tea and fizz which was left as a welcome for us.

We will definitely visit again and highly recommend.

Buckfastleigh is a lovely welcoming Town. Lots of nearby walking. Plenty of helpful local people ready to chat. Two lovely pubs and the Pea and Ham soup in the Singing Kettle is to die for. The Nook is small but well equipped - just what I wanted for this break.

A lovely little ‘Bolt Hole’ on the edge of Dartmoor. A cosy little terraced cottage in a quiet alley. We spent most evenings staring at the flames from the wood burner. It’s in the perfect spot for exploring Dartmoor and the river Dart, or the coastal walks from Dartmouth. The locals in Buckfastleigh are kind and friendly.

Lovely small modern house on a quiet tasteful hosuing estate.
Extreamly clean with well thought out touches.
Lovely bottle of fizzy plonk & scfones on arrival (unsure if this was normal or a festive touch but great)
Very comfortable & very quiet location.
Nice village

Beautifully decorated cottage with cute courtyard which is dog safe. Lovely goodies on arrival.... Parking was the only difficulty, although occasionally we managed to park directly out the front. ..Walking distance to beaches and all amenities was fab. Katie was very communicative and helpful.
Hope to return.

The host was absolutely lovely and made us feel so welcome. We were greeted with scones, jam and cream upon entry which was so lovely. She was super understanding and even sent my sister a birthday card on her birthday and a balloon. The cottage was in pristine condition and exactly as described. The hot tub was an highlight and was frequently cleaned whilst we stayed there. Our stay could not have been better and it was due a lot to how amazing the host was. Will definitely be visiting again - hopefully for longer next time!!

Lovely stay in a great little cottage. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, clean.
Good communication and a later check out which was helpful.

The only downside was the lounge/downstairs did smell of dogs which if you don't have a dog isn't ideal.

Parking can be a bit of a challenge, I imagine in the summer it's probably worse.

Thanks for a great week.
