‘Chose this cottage as was recommended to us through family. We were not disappointed.. We absolutely loved our stay at the cottage. It’s very comfortable and spacious, in a perfect location to explore Devon. We loved the surroundings and nature around us. The fire was a treat- Lovely and cosy. We had everything we needed at the cottage and is a perfect spot if you’re looking for a dog friendly holiday. Hosts were always available if needed and happy to help. Thank you lovely Zoe and Malcolm. We look forward to seeing you again.’

‘A picture postcard setting, ideal for a complete getaway over New Year, wonderful to be able to bring the dogs with walks literally straight out of the front door. Some great pubs very close by, we loved the Duke of York in Iddesleigh which is about 2 miles each way following the Tarka Trail, right out of the front gate or the Tally Ho which is 1.5 miles into the village of Hatherleigh. We did lots of cooking so it was great to have a well equipped kitchen and also with such muddy walking the use of the washing machine was a complete must! Absolutely adored the log burner and I thought the Christmas tree with lights made for a very romantic setting. Great hosts who whilst at hand if you have any questions were totally anonymous otherwise. Would absolutely recommend this barn if you’re looking for a releasing break. We visited Bude, Westwood Ho, Tintagel and Boscastle, nothing more than 50 minutes drive and all well worth the visit.’

‘Set in the most amazing countryside this former barn has been turned into a bit of a jewel, we were made to feel at home straight away, the granary has class, style, the wow factor. Ever so reasonably priced for a 5 star property. We had a week of discovery and noticed holiday makers come back again and again. Thank you Malcolm and Zoe plus your mum and dad for a Devonshire treat with our 4 dogs.’

‘We recently stayed at this wonderful cottage with our small dog Teisha. on our arrival we were made to feel at home already by the lovely warm welcome by Zoe and her husband Malcolm. nothing was to much trouble for them. if we needed advice on how far somewhere was they were on hand to answer our queries. they have done an amazeing job with the cottage. its in a stunning location. and I loved feeding the ducks every morning and watching them in the duck pond in the garden. and gorgeous views at the back to. . the cottage is extreamly well equipped and warm and inviteing. there is ample room and has been very tastefuly decorated. and although the down stairs lounge is really big. we was not cold at all. and did not need the fire on at all..everywhere was immaculate and clean. Haherleigh isnt very big but the two pubs do lovely meals and dogs are allowed in them which is a bonus the museum at the quay is a great day out I had such fun dressing up in Victorian clothes. there is loads to do as the cottage is in a really good spot and not to far from places to see for a good day out. we had a superb holiday and cant thank Zoe and Macolm enough for making it possible we did not want to leave this gorgeous cottage and will be back. thanks you.’

‘Arrived on cold evening greeted by a roaring log fire, extremely clean cottage and fresh bedding that smelt lovely. The owners introduced themselves and what a lovely accommodating couple they are nothing was any bother. The cottage is well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Great location to explore Devonshire and Cornwall. There is duck pond that is well fenced off, which kept our gundogs from getting in for a swim. Tarka trail is on doorstep which was great to tire out our dogs. Such a quite, relaxing stay. The owners have done such a spectacular job on renovating such a fabulous thatch cottage. If you like walks or want to explore Devonshire and Cornwall or just want somewhere to recouarate from the stresses of life this is the place to stay. Hope to return very soon.’

‘We were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome by our hosts, who were lovely. The Cottage itself is beautiful and has everything that you need. The cottage is clean, comfortable and homely. It is located down a very long narrow lane, but this adds to the feeling of getting away from it all. The cottage is situated actually along the Tarka Trail, so if walking is your thing you can start from your front door. Widemouth beach is within a reasonable drive for a day at the coast. My younger daughter loved having our very own duck pond, (which is fenced off for safety). This a great place to really get away from all the hustle and bustle and enjoy the peace and quiet, but is still within easy reach of the local attractions within a short drive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Groves Fishleigh.’
