A really lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a fantastic week at Little Beck. The house is so comfortable, we felt at home in the first five minutes and loved the welcoming cream tea.

We are a family of five and one dog and had plenty of room. Everything was incredibly clean, couldn't find fault with the house at all.

The playing field just a few steps away was a massive bonus for the children and the dog. We found plenty of local attractions to explore and really could have done with a couple more days at the end to squeeze it all in. We will just have to go back!

Lovely village, Good location, beautiful house.

  • 5 of 5

Little Beck is a wonderful home to use as a base for a week away. It is our first time of renting a cottage rather than using a b&b or hotel and I'm so glad we did. We have 2 young children (23 months and 12 weeks), our eldest loved having another house to explore, the 'owl' coasters were a big hit! When we arrived at the property the stair gate was missing but Mark quickly provided a replacement which was a wonderful relief as it was my sons first time in a twin bed. After busy days exploring Devon and entertaining the children, my husband and I were able to completely relax on an evening.

There's a well equipped kitchen, really comfy beds and a safe garden for the children to play in.

Christow is a lovely and very friendly village and is the perfect place to explore the rest of Devon. The local pub serves good meals and real ales, and the local shop provides organic produce and fresh baking. Certainly a place we will be happy to return to.

Smart, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely 2 week stay at this property. Very well appointed, clean, smart and comfortable. Very handy for visiting the whole area of SE Devon including Dartmoor, the coastline, local towns such as Totnes and also Exeter. Village is very pretty, extremely quiet and the locals are pleasant. We recommend The Artichoke for a drink and the shop stocks the basics. Large supermarket nearby in Kingsteignton for a bigger food shop.

What a delightful, well equipped stunning cottage. Fitted out to an excellent standard.

Perfect location for exploring and long beach walks with the dog. Most places are within half an hour drive.

Thank you Mark and Nikki. We shall be back!

Very comfortable in peaceful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

Overall very happy with our stay at Little Beck.Very comfortable and spacious in peaceful surroundings.Just a few things that I feel could do with a little attention.No stair gate as mentioned(apparently broken but not replaced during our stay)We did bring our own portable one.A cot provided but no bedding or mattress,which is ok but no mention of this again til I emailed to check there was one to use in place 2 days before.Should be stated you need to bring certain items.And pantry goods were only a few bits left over from previous guests.Garden very private and very safe for young children(again a little attention to detail would make it beautiful)All said a very nice cottage so thank you for a lovely stay.Definately highly recommend this cottage.

Charming, spacious and well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 generation family group of 6 really enjoyed our stay at Little Beck, which was just as advertised - spacious, well appointed and cosy! Even in July some days were really chilly and the central heating and woodburning Stove were much appreciated, especially by the members of the family over from the Caribbean.

The enclosed small, rear garden was delightful to sit in and safe for the new puppy, who was unfortunately not old enough to enjoy the adjacent Christow playing field, which, with a skateboard park and tennis courts as well would have been marvelous for older children. 7 year old Chloe and her granny enjoyed it though, finding wild flowers and butterflies in the grassy banks and hedgerows and spotting sheep and cows in the lovely Devon countryside.

Devon is arguably the most beautiful of the westcountry's counties with its two contrasting coastlines, the north a mecca for surfers and the more tranquil south ideal for families. With its distinctive thatched villages hiding in the folds of rolling green hills, its farming heritage still evident in the herds of dairy cattle and native sheep that graze the open common land, there is nowhere more picturesque or tranquil. The fishing villages that hug the coasts have barely changed over the centuries and look out over beaches of fine sand and characterful harbours. The jewel in the county's crown is Dartmoor National Park.

The village of Christow, just within the eastern boundary of the Dartmoor National Park is ideally situated for exploring this beautiful area. Located in the delightful Teign Valley, the rugged moorland is only a short drive away. There are walks from the doorstep, a number of beaches within easy reach and the historic and well regarded cathedral city of Exeter is only 20 minutes away with its full range of shops and restaurants. The main road links to Cornwall and the South Hams are also easily accessible. Christow itself is a sweet Devon village boasting a shop, post office and traditional pub. Little Beck is situated in the lower part of the village close to the 15th century church and open playing fields where there are 3 modern tennis courts guests can make use of for a small charge.
