“Borderline experience”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2016

Due to late arrival of 'instruction pack' (after we had left home), we did not know how we were to get the key or where to park and were 'told off' by the neighbours. Compared with our previous experiences of self-catering properties, facilities were limited eg. No way of getting weather forecast (no wi-fi, tv, radio, mobile signal) - important as we were walking the moors and cycling the trails.

Owner's reply: Apologies for the late information pack, that was an oversight on our part. These are usually sent out a few days before your stay. When I realised, I did send the pack out immediately and also tried to contact you by phone, but you had only provided a home number and not a mobile number. A note was left for you at the property with details about how to gain entry to the property as well as our phone number in case you needed to get in touch. We would urge guests to get in touch if you have not received check in information prior to your arrival date. We are located right on the edge of Dartmoor and mobile phone signal is poor for some networks in the area. Unfortunately we have no control over this. Wi-fi is another problematic area for us due to the thick granite walls of Moorhaven. Your visit also coincided with our internet going down and we are still awaiting an engineer to rectify this. But due to the patchy nature of the Wi-Fi signal, we will be removing this as an available facility on the listing for The Nook, as it is not always reliable. TV is not available in The Nook, but a radio will be available for future guests. Although The Nook is a self-contained property, we (the owners) are just next door and would encourage guests to knock on our door if there are any issues that need addressing and we will do our best to rectify them. We're quite happy to mend the shower/explain how the kettle works/print off daily weather reports. We want our guests to have a comfortable stay. But to do this, we do need to know about problems when they happen.

“Excellent short break”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at the Nook, it was well located and equipped with everything you could need for a short stay. The kind owners even posted back a bracelet that I forgetfully left behind!

“Absolutely perfect”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2014

We were really impressed by the Nook - it's a very small cottage but incredibly well laid-out; very cozy and comfortable. Well-situated right on the edge of Dartmoor. Great value for money!

“Perfect getaway, ideal location to explore the south west”

Reviewed 8 Mar 2014

The Nook was a lovely place to stay, nestled near Dartmoor but close enough to major towns and just off the dual carriageway! The owners were lovely and accommodating, and they really have thought of everything. The accommodation is nicely decorated and very comfortable! The bed was like sleeping on a cloud! It is an ideal location to visit many attractions around the Southwest, Dartmoor Zoo is a particular favourite! Would definitely recommend to family and friends! Will be back :)

“A beautiful retreat inside and out.”

Reviewed 26 Feb 2014

My husband and I stayed at The Nook with our two children (5 and 9). It was suprisingly comfortable with 4 people there, and we had the most wonderful week. The Nook is clean, comfortable and cosy, the owners are friendly and helpful and the surroundings are so very quirky and beautiful. We spent our time exploring Dartmoor, taking the Torpoint ferry over to Cornwall and spending time in Plymouth. There was so much to do and we had the most marvellous week. The Nook is perfect as a base for walkers and day trippers or as a cosy hide away from the typical UK weather.
