This was a return trip after more than 20 years since we first stayed with our young children and I can only say that it is even better than remembered. Ruth and John have made it a perfect getaway for anyone looking for a relaxing break and they are so hospitable. Dittiscombe is such a perfect setting, we had a beautiful and restorative weekend and enjoyed exploring the estate with our dog who also gives it top marks!

The cottage is a perfect, restful haven in a beautiful and peaceful location. It is well equipped and attractively furnished with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. I really enjoyed the wood burner in particular. The hosts were friendly, welcoming and helpful. I would return in a heartbeat. Although it’s out in the sticks, it is a very short distance from the beautiful coast.

The Owlery and the surrounding grounds are the most wonderful place to stay. A lovely cottage with all the facilities needed for a romantic and quiet stay. The peace and quiet of the area just allows you to completely relax and recharge. Taking a walk in the grounds and seeing and hearing nature is a real treat. Ruth and Jon are so welcoming. Thoroughly recommend.

As usual Ruth, John, Daisy & Dexter made another fantastic firework free dog friendly stay. Honeysuckle cottage was up to standard with it’s new smart TV & quicker internet. The views are fantastic.
