Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed at this lovely cottage for five days over Easter weekend. It is luxury. Beautifully decorated and really well equipped with anything you might need. We were lucky to have good weather so it is a great location for exploring South Hams but there's enough to keep you busy in the house if it rains with books games and TV. The hosts Julie and Paul were amazing and very friendly and we even got scones and clotted cream on our arrival. Lovely touches to make us feel very much at home. We have a 1 year old daughter and it was very baby friendly and there were even games and toys and a travel cot high chair and stair gates for her. We had a really lovely weekend and would definitely book again. .

Amazing Cottage in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay that was close to Bantham Beach, so this was the ideal location with Bantham just a 10 minute drive away. On arrival though we were immediately struck by the quality of the cottage. Beautiful large kitchen and dining area, comfortable lounge areas and utility room with washer & dryer. Then it was all the little details; freshly baked cake, phone charging cables, music system, wifi/broadband ... we wanted for nothing during our stay. Big bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms, lovely showers, heated floors & towel rails ... Everyone in our group has raved about the house in one way or another, and it really sets the bar high for a holiday cottage in Devon (and anywhere else for that matter!) Really hope to find an excuse to go back again.

Fantastic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage, with all mod cons and amenities. We had 2 dogs with us who loved the huge garden at the back of the property. It's also a great central base for lots of lovely beaches which are only a short drive away. Would recommend a stay at Harraton cottage to anyone.

Fantastic cottage in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Harraton Cottage is a beautiful house finished to a very high spec. Its light, bright exceptionally clean and has everything you could possibly need. A huge open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area meant we could all be together as a family instead of being in different rooms. this was great for us as there were 8 of us plus 1 small dog who had booked to celebrate my mother in laws 80th birthday. The bedrooms again were lovely, very comfy beds and crisp white linen. There was only 1 coat hanger in each bedroom which meant we had to hang 3 shirts on one in ours, so maybe a few more would help. The en suites were lovely with great showers and under floor heating. The only thing missing was a shelf of some kind to put toileteries on.

Only 10 mins from Kingsbridge and Salcombe and 25 from Dartmouth with beaches near by ( although we didn't actually get on to a beach) it was ideal, we even did Paignton and Torquay on the Sunday before heading home.

All in all a lovely, relaxing weekend. Will def go back - maybe when it's a bit warmer to make use of the large garden and outdoor eating area complete with BBQ and garden games.

What a wonderful family Christmas we had at Harraton Cottage! The welcome chocolate brownies were a hit with the family. Beautifully furnished. Loved the open plan kitichen/dining area (great on Christmas Day) ideal location and close to beaches etc.

Thank you to Julie for answering the numerous questions I had before booking.

We look forward to visiting again.
