A very beautiful cottage , comfy , cosy and ideally located for buckfastleigh and dartmoor.
The owners were very welcoming , put a lot of personal effort into making you feel at home during your stay.
The key safe made everything so easy .
Permit parking in car park down the road.
Beautiful walks nearby and a great little pub up the top of buckfastleigh .
I would happily come back and stay and have recommended it to several friends already.
I didn't really know what to expect having never visited Buckfastleigh before but, very pleasantly surprised and even more pleasantly surprised with River garden cottage!! everything was perfect ! A comfortable well appointed cottage with lovely touches from the heating being on when we arrived to the wine, chocolates. cheese, bread etc waiting for us on arrival, and to my wifes delight even fresh flowers
The owners have obviously worked hard at getting the property into the shape it is, and for this we were appreciative. an enjoyable quiet break with plenty of relaxing [i slept like a log]
it's a perfect bolthole for getting away from the madness of life
What a lovely place, a real home from home feel.
On opening the door we were greeted with a basket of locally sourced essentials, bread, cheese butter, jams and the bowl of fruit, a welcome sight after driving from Cambridge.
On exploring the house, we were delighted by the level of finish and the comfort of the furnishings.
Buckfastleigh also has a lot to offer, including a fantastic Otter Sanctuary, although we adopted a Otter, we will definitly be returning to this lovely pad!

I booked this holiday cottage as a last minute getaway for me and my husband and what a find.
I was a little hesitant as I normally like to book somewhere that has quite a few reviews but I'm glad I took the plunge as we couldn't have wished for a more cosy place to unwind after the xmas holiday rush.
The bed was very comfortable as was the rest of the property which was very clean and the welcome basket of goodies was a thoughtful touch.
We didn't get around to using the kitchen as we used the local cafes and restaurants but it had everything you could ever need if you were the chef type.
All in all we couldn't fualt the place (even as my other half is very fussy) and hope it remains our little secret to come back to again !
