About Lynda Partridge

My husband and I live in rural Devon with our pet dogs and chickens. We moved here in 2013 as an 'escape to the country'. We love the beautiful English countryside, the seclusion and the friendly locals. After holidaying in Devon for many years, this was our favourite area and where we chose to settle.

A fantastic place to stay, a little gem in Devon

  • 5 of 5

Our party was 2 couples and 1 puppy. We all had a great time and would recommend this place to anyone as it has something for everyone, and although it isn't around the corner from beaches (which are about 30 mins drive) etc, the space it has would keep children entertained for days.

On arrival 'No Place' felt extremely comfy, clean and cosy and the entire cottage is decorated to a very high standard. Lynda was extremely friendly and helpful, even leaving some fresh eggs, laid on site, scones, jam and cream together with milk, tea and coffee. What a lovely welcome.

About the cottage;

Downstairs:

You step into the porch which has tiled flooring (easy to clean if wet weather) big enough to house a puppy and her crate plus some. Even has a bodyboard and windbreak.

Then through a stable type door into the carpeted lounge with Sky tv, comfortable sofas, a log fire, dvd's and games.

Off the lounge:

Into the kitchen which houses all the essentials, such as electric cooker, washing machine, washing up equipment, fridge, microwave, all cooking utensils including scales (if you had the urge to bake), pots and pans, plenty of plates cups and glasses it also has a wine cooler.

Bedroom 1: King Size bed, the mattress it was soooo comfortable, a single bed, Wardrobe and side tables.

Staircase leading to a lovely landing with bathroom, and 2nd bedroom again with a double bed, as me and b/f slept downstairs I am unable to comment but our friends were extremely comfortable.

The gardens are huge and well maintained, has a swing seat, an area with a fire pit, wooded area where they have built a large tree house.

Choose this cottage you really won't be disappointed.

Lynda gave a warm welcome. The cottage is beautifully appointed. Very comfy bed and well equipped. We appreciated the Devon scones on arrival . We had free use of the garden and access to the grounds which were lovely with gorgeous countryside views. Enjoyed local pubs and Tarka pottery . Highly recommend. Many thanks .

Excellent space in the heart of the countryside

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four from Sarasota Florida and it worked great - lots of space with high end appliances; kids were able to watch movies in the evening in sky, great internet service, went to Clovelly, Westwood Ho, Torrington, Appledore - ate at the New Inn pub less than 5 minutes. Met with homemade scones for a cream tea - gardens were beautiful;) great place to walk or take hikes, very accommodating, ty!!
