"Beautifully relaxed weekend!!!"
Beautiful cottage and setting!!! Gareth and Carol are excellent hosts could not do enough for you from baking delicious scones and jam on arrival to lending DVDs and giving paracetamol as no local shop in village. If you want tranquility and relaxing weekend this is definitely the place to go! Will be visiting again soon.
We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your romantic Valentine weekend and the cottage surpassed your expectations.

"A magic place to return again and again and ..."
First of all a big "Thank you!" to Carol and Gareth! You have been extraordinary hosts and we would love to come back to Owlacombe Mill as soon as possible.
We loved the warm welcome, the homemade scones and marmelade and enjoyed cream tea in the beautiful front garden and barbecues in the back garden (which is directly accessible from th bedroom balcony).
Everything was so well prepared and equipped that we have been able to focus on enjoying our holidays instead of having to organize things.
In fact, The Old Granary at Owlacombe Mill has been furnished in a way that you immediately feel at home: A well equipped kitchen with "real stuff" not just decoration, i. e. kitchen utensils and table ware of quality and of one style instead of the wild potpourri of styles that you usually find in cottages, a beautiful and cozy living room with wood stove, books and DVD TV set, a bright and friendly bedroom with balcony and a splendid view and a lovely bathroom with a spaciuos shower. All in all, this place has everything one's heart could desire!
Furthermore you find a nice Pub in walking distance with great food and a fine choice of local ales.
If you are looking for a quite and peaceful time for recreation and relaxation, you should give this place in the heart of the breathtaking Devon nature a try!
We have been both lucky and happy to find such a magic place!!!
Thank you for the glowing review! We aim to provide our guests with all they might need for a relaxing holiday in peaceful surroundings. The'home from home' we would enjoy staying in. Look forward to you both returning very soon.

"Owlacombe Mill is paradise on earth"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Owlacombe Mill. The Granary was cosy, very complete and the garden beautiful. Gareth and Carol are perfect hosts and warm people. My husband just loved Carol's scones.
Thank you for your kind words. I will have to compile a recipe for my scones and send you a copy. Its always a pleasure to share our home with such lovely guests. Look forward to your return visit.
