Thanks for your review, Mike and Pam. We're glad you enjoyed your holiday and hope to see you back again soon. We saw the barn owl last night -- sorry you missed it. Then again, you saw a nightjar, which is more than we did!
Best wishes, Anne and John

Ostlers Cottage is a lovely, clean and nicely decorated cottage in beautiful surroundings. Upon arrival we were greeted with a lovely cake which was well received. The cottage has everything you could want in a holiday home. The grounds are lovely for a walk around the lake and watch the sunset. Didnt have time to use the boat but maybe nrxt time. It was great to sit and watch a variety of birds right outside the door. And to sit outside and watch a beautiful star filled sky without any light polution was lovely. Its a perfect location to explore Devon. Visits to Bude, Clovelly, Westward Ho, Cotele Tavistock and Buckland Abbey all recommended. All in all it was a great week in a lovely place which I would highly recommend and I look forward to returning in the future. …
The Garden House
Peaceful Haven in Devon
From the moment we arrived we started to relax. John met us and explained everything we needed to know then left us to enjoy their beautiful grounds and lake. The homemade cake and flowers were a lovely touch and the cottage had everything you could need. We left feeling so much better than when we arrived. Each evening we looked forward to returning from our explorations of Devon and Cornwall to drive down the 'magic ' tree lined lane back to our oasis of tranquilty. We would definitely return again.

Comfortable cottage in a quiet location
We were very lucky to be the very first guests in this cottage & enjoyed the tranquil surroundings in a very non-touristy area. We ventured out in all directions & many popular spots were within less than an hour's drive. We also found some more remote areas of nearby Dartmoor where there was not a sole to be seen all day.
The owners made us feel very welcome & even provided home-made bread, hot cross buns & freshly laid eggs in the welcome hamper . They were even happy for us to go into their back garden to see the new born lambs whenever we wished. …
Fantastic property, high standard and amazing views.
We stayed at Oak Leaf for the third time this April. Sandra and Nick are very welcoming hosts and always happy to help out wih any questions and ice if you run short :). The property is excellent, spacious and thoughtfully decorated. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a lovely relaxing break in one of the most beautiful settings in the country. Perfect. …

The cottage was very warm and inviting, modern and fully equipped for every need. The binoculars and information books were a lovely touch.
We enjoyed exploring the area and found that the cottage was within easy reach of the coastal resorts and Dartmoor/Bodmin moor.
