"It doesn't get any better than this"

The Old Granary is the most perfect bolt hole. The photos on the website don't lie – the cottage and gardens really are lovely. Roborough is an ideal base to explore the beautiful Devon countryside and coastline, but when the weather closes in you don't really need an excuse to light the woodburner and just enjoy the home comforts in the cottage. Carol and Gareth –Thank you so much. We can't wait to come back.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We will keep the log store topped up for your return visit. Can't beat a snuggle by the fire any time!

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.
