Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a perfect stay at September Cottage. The cottage has been beautifully decorated with high quality furniture and fittings. Super kitchen with aga and all spotlessly clean,. We loved it and will return.

A true gem of a cottage!

  • 5 of 5

A professional care has been taken to provide holiday-makers with every conceivable creature comfort. Highly appointed decor within a luxurious and comfortable home. This is the perfect setting for a 'get away from it all' holiday. It is sad that the local pub recently suffered from serious fire damage - it is likely to be many months before the owners will be open for business again. Having said this, Morton Hampstead and Bovey Castle are very near and there are a number of other local hostelries to choose from. Lastly, the bookings administrator (manages the property portfolio) was very efficient in the swift return of our security deposit. Top marks all round!!!

Handsome 'home from home'.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at September Cottage for our 30th Wedding Anniversary in September so it was aptly named! We had a lovely, relaxing time and would definitely return.

The house is very pretty from the outside and the gardens are a real treat. There are several places to sit so that the sun can be followed around the house. On the inside, the house is absolutely huge and I would call it a 'handsome' house. It is not at all 'twee' as everything is so big - from the TV to the kitchen area. The house would be perfect for a family or for up to three couples as there is masses of space and different areas for different activities.

The decor and furnishings are a mixture of traditional and contemporary which works very well and the beds are extremely comfortable with quality bedlinen. The house is spotlessly clean and incredibly well equipped. There are also plenty of logs for the wood burning stove.

North Bovey is 'chocolate box' pretty and in a wonderful area. The Ring of Bells pub is a 'proper' pub and is frequented by the locals as well as visitors. The food is excellent and there is a lovely seating area outside. The Rugglestone Inn at Widecombe-in-the-Moor is a fabulous unspoilt pub with good pub 'grub'.

We had our anniversary dinner at Hotel Endsleigh on the other side of Dartmoor. It was about an hour's drive but the views were stunning and the meal and the ambience of the hotel was superb.

We had lots of days out, including a visit to The Garden House at Buckland Monochorum which was simply stunning, but it was just as lovely to lie on the grass in the sunshine at the back of September Cottage and listen to the birds and the sound of church bells.

Lovely luxury cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at September Cottage. It's located in a lovely village with an excellent pub and charming church. It was a great base from which to explore Dartmoor and wonderful to return to after a long day walking. Beautiful gardens and well-stocked, spacious kitchen. Everything top quality and well thought-out.

The Perfect Country Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The perfect thatched cottage for a comfortable country stay, spacious, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen- new AGA. Two Spacious dinning areas, quality glassware etc. The living area with wood stove is large with comfortable sofas. Tastefully decorated.

Manicured gardens. The North Bovey Village is peaceful with many gentle walks. The Ring of Bells pub -71 steps across a tree lined green, has THE best Sunday Roast Beef. Our second stay here and we will be returning again.

Cottage perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

I have just got back from a wonderful stay in September Cottage, the cottage is perfect in every way. Having stayed in a number of cottages, I always travel with half my kitchen from home.

Staying at September Cottage there was no need, the kitchen is very well stocked the rest of the house beautifully decorated, making it feel warm and comfy.

If you stay in the master bedroom, I would highly recommend watching the sun rise over the hills from the window seat: magical.

We will be visiting again.
