I liked the location and the history associated with this building, finding a Devon Longhouse well preserved was like winning the lottery I wasn't aware of this cottage c1450 and I'm from the region, the owners Martin and Kim were lovely.

Lovely stay in beautiful accommodation

Sweet Rose cottage is small but very pretty with loads of character. The kitchen is deceptively well equipped having everything you might need. Owners are friendly and helpful. We had a relaxing break and would recommend staying here.

A haven of peace

We had such a beautiful week in Sweet Rose. Our welcome on arrival made us feel at home immediately and the welcome gift after a long journey was beautiful. The cottage was warm, homely, clean and very well stocked with everything you need. The location is also perfect to explore the Devon coastline.

A lovely quiet private cozy cottage that feels like a great escape from the hurl burly. Very welcome gifts on arrival with fantastic communication throughout. Very good if you have a dog.

Good value cottage that is only a short drive to everything and is dog friendly. The local fish and chip shop is lovely as well.

Honeysuckle was just beautiful. Warm, cosy, comfy and full of charm. Loved the garden as well.

A great stay, cottage is very comfortable, equipped and cosy. Very peaceful setting, we enjoyed listening to the birds with a morning coffee in the courtyard. Location is good, in a quiet street but a short stroll to a selection of local shops. Wifi speeds excellent, we were able to make video calls for work without any problem. The welcome goodies were a lovely touch. Communication by hosts was excellent, check in/out very easy. Would recommend.

Beautiful little house - perfect for us on our first post-covid holiday. Tucked away from the road but so close to the shops. Ideal. Really lovely walks all around and would love to return when the weather is less February-like! Martin was very welcoming and his mum was absolutely charming. Definitely recommend!

Home from Home

Overall impressions of the Cottage were spotlessly clean & cosy. It was equipt with everything you need & everything you didn’t think you needed until you did! A very warm & cozy cottage that felt like home.

Came for a birthday break to enjoy coastal walks. Did not disappoint. Lovely conversion of the old barns. Lots of character and beautiful coastline to explore.

Lovely Cottage

We passed a wonderful time in Pilgrims Rest Cottages with a very warm welcome. The cottage is well situated and equipped and we even had the chance to enjoy a bit of sun in the garden. Matin is a very caring owner and ensures a wonderful stay for his guests.

We had a really wonderful stay here. The living space was great for socialising and the outdoor space was great for our dog. The bedrooms are very comfortable. Goodrington sands is a lovely wide beach and great for walking the dogs. Wonderful find, lots of laughter and games galore.
