                                                  Amazing Cottage in a fantastic location

                                                  Jon R.Twickenham, UK

                                                  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.

                                                  Thank you so much for such a glowing review. We are thrilled you liked Harraton so much and hope you come back again in the future. Best wishes Julie

                                                  Fantastic cottage in ideal location

                                                  Huw D.

                                                  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.

                                                  I’m so pleased you had a lovely family Christmas at Harraton. Thank you so much for the great review. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

                                                  Beautiful house very high spec and great value

                                                  Julie made us the most delicious cake on arrival. We have honestly never stayed in such a clean house and it was beautifully done out. Beds were super comfy and all household products were there to use. Fantastic feng shui!

                                                  Wonderful house to spend the weekend.

                                                  Jude A.Great Britain

                                                  The is quite simple a beautiful house. Loved every thing about it !

                                                  ( only slight downside would be finding it - not sign posted and you drive through an old farm to get to the driveway to the cottage ).

                                                  But we'll worthwhile one you get there. Including the home made cake for our arrival. Xx

                                                  Thank you so much for your review and for the feedback about the signage-rest assured it is in hand and will soon be sorted. The farm yard is also in the process of being tidied up too as the stone barns are being converted. We hope to see you again.

                                                  This property is perfect. So clean and tidy. Full of every essential. Beautiful surroundings.

                                                  Our stay was amazing from being to end. Sweet treat on arrival was amazing. All amenities were perfect. Literally only needed to bring clothes and food. Garden was amazing our boys spent hours playing outside. Whilst we relaxed. Cows at the top of the garden were loved by all.

                                                  I really couldn't recommend this place enough to people. One of the best accommodation we have rented.
