What Our Customers Say About Buddleia
The perfect choice for us – and our dogs ! Visited whilst doing some serious house hunting in the area (and celebrating our anniversary) – loved the location, Buddleia cottage, the garden and all those wonderful walks round the estate. Would definitely recommend to anyone with – or without – dogs who wants a gorgeous rural retreat in the lovely South Hams
Really beautiful setting, rural and so peaceful. The cottage was very well set up with everything you could need. Very friendly owners. Great for travelling with a dog….ours loved his holiday!
We loved our stay at Dittiscombe and just loved being in our own nature reserve! You have made it so beautiful and so full of wildlife. Recommend the Tower Inn for good food.
Thank you Jon & Ruth for your warm welcome and another week in this cosy cottage.
