“A secluded gem in the south hams - the perfect getaway”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2012

Just had a brilliant week at Little Fishes, Charlie, the owner and Chris, the site manager made us feel so welcome, the fire was lit to welcome us and we had a constant supply of wood for the week, fresh eggs supplied and even laid on a firework display for us. Our two girls aged 16 and 12 loved the games room with the table tennis and snooker. The grounds are idyllic, very well kept, our springer spaniel loved the beautiful walks along the river Avon and the old railway and of course Dartmouth, Salcombe, Bantham etc are all nearby. The cottage is home from home, very comfortable, with lovely views of the grounds from the lounge and decking. If you want to get away from it all, then this is a little Devonshire gem and we will definitely be going back!

“Wow, the biggest front and back garden ever!!!”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2012

We had a great week at Little Fishes, the owner Charles, the site manager Chris and both their dogs Amy and Captain made us feel most welcome. The cottage was lovely and very modern. But best of all was the ground surrounding the property which was huge and very well kept. The river Avon runs through the property and so does the old Primrose railway line which makes for a lovely walk. We also had the run of the place as the other 2 cottages were not in use at the time of our visit. It was so quiet there. The location was also excellent, 6 miles from Woodlands, 10 miles from the majority of beaches and major towns, 5 miles to the nearest Tesco's and roughly 20 minutes to Dartmoor. We will definitely be going back.
