A great property that we can't recommend highly enough. A beautifully presented little cottage (with 2 other holiday lets each side of it) with very high quality and finish in all parts. The hosts are lovely and very helpful as well - they even put Christmas decorations up for the season. The hot tub is the highlight and very much recommended. LocaRead moretion is lovely and quiet as well. Hide

Beautifully presented accommodation. Comfortable sofa and bed. Excellent hosts who heated up the wood fired hot tub for us each day. Would definitely go back to the hayloft if we return to that part of Devon.

A delightful cottage, beautifully styled, serene in a quiet location. The owner was very helpful, especially with the hot tub, lighting it as required and knocking on the door to announce it was ready.

Ideal for people wanting a quiet, relaxing (possibly walking) holiday set in beautiful countryside

We would highly recommend this property. My partner and I stayed here with our new pup Luna and it couldnt have been more ideal. We had our own fenced off area which was perfect for her to be let off the lead. The cottage was beautiful, it has an amazing bath and the eco hot tub is even better - such a wonderfully relaxing addition. Its located appRead morerox 30mins drive from the major attractions - lots to see and do with some lovely beaches all around. Thanks for a great time Hembury Gate Farm! Hide
