A lovely stay at April cottage, fantastic views, and a great location. We had a great holiday with my family, and our son and all, loved the farm tour with John. We felt very welcome with lovely flowers on the dining table, with cream teas, and a couple of bottle of wine to enjoy in lovely surroundings. Our grand children loved also the play area, Read moreand we would highly recommend this cottage. Thank you for a lovely stay. Hide

A wonderful week in Devon enhanced by a fantastic cottage. Location is stunning with unrivalled views and the cottage was incredibly comfortable with all we needed. The great selection of kids toys and beach equipment an added bonus as was the delicious Devon cream tea on arrival from our very welcoming hosts.

April Cottage is a wonderful base for a Devon holiday. The Cottage was spotlessly clean. The Cottage has lots of old fashioned charm as well as feeling modern and fresh. The owners take excellent care of the property and had lots of little extra touches you don't normally find. The gardens and grounds were amazing! Perfect for kids and had a littleRead more shed full of outdoor toys. We can't wait to get back next year! Perfect cottage with perfect gardens. Well done to the owners! Hide
