“Awesome cottage”
Reviewed 5 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We arrived at Passion Flower Cottage to be greater with scrumptious cream teas and a welcome bag for our Whippet Jonty. The cottage had everything you could wish for and needed. The decor was so pretty and very welcoming. Spotlessly clean throughout and a lovely comfortable good size bed. Excellent enclosed garden for Jonty and a short walk to the woods. Manya and Andrew with Jude the spaniel made us feel at home and nothing was to much for them. Would highly recommend this cottage but book early as it gets booked quickly. Ideal place as a base to explore the wonderful towns and beaches of Devon and Cornwall.

“Pretty country retreat”
Reviewed 27 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Manya was there to meet us, and she left us a wonderful Devon cream tea, which was so welcome after a long drive down! The house was perfect for a couple on a walking holiday, with a lovely wood-burning stove to come home to to thaw out after days on rainy Dartmoor. Beautifully and artfully furnished, and run by a lovely couple and their sweet dog, I can thoroughly recommend Passion Flower Cottage for anyone looking to get away from it all.

“Rural retreat to recharge your batteries”
Reviewed 14 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Beautiful cottage in an idyllic location in rural Devon. This is the place to get away from it all and recharge your batteries. The cottage is immaculately presented, beautifully furnished, with a very cosy living room and delightful bedroom. The living area has the added bonus of the wood-burning stove, great for a wet afternoon, curled up on the sofa watching a DVD, warming your toes. Lovely little garden which I imagine would be perfect for that summer barbecue. It's a car journey to the nearest shops/amenities, down a few narrow Devon lanes, but this is normal for this area. Tavistock is the nearest town and a delight, definitely worth a visit(s). We spent 6 lovely days in the area and managed to easily cover mid Cornwall (down to Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligon), North and South Devon, including Dartmoor on the doorstep and Plymouth area. Great stay, perfect location.

“Idyllic, relaxing, totally dog friendly holiday which makes you feel totally refreshed.”
Reviewed 9 March 2017 for a stay in June 2016

The cottage is beautifully done out and is equipped with everything you could possibly need. It is set in amazing countryside, and is really quiet and relaxing. It is right on the Devon/Cornwall border so you get the best of both counties. The grounds and garden are secure which is great for dogs as it gives them plenty of freedom. The local farm shop sells fabulous products and places like Jamaica Inn, Tintagel, Boscastle, the Moors, Polperro and Mevagissy are all within easy reach for lovely days out. The owners of the cottage are really lovely and will always help with ideas for a day out and you leave knowing you have made new friends.We can't wait to go back this year (twice).
