“Three Pound Cottage”

Reviewed 19 May 2015

Three Pound Cottage is an exquisite 16th century property with 21st century conveniences including underfloor heating. The two bathrooms were very convenient. It is nestled in the village of Lustleigh, Devon which sits on the eastern edge of Dartmoor. The village has a well stocked corner shop and a popular pub called The Cleave. Many beautiful walks are directly accessible from the cottage or a short drive will take you to the moors. The towns of Bovey Tracey and Newton Abbot are 15 minutes away by car and another 15 minutes will get you to Exeter. If you want a Dartmoor experience, Three Pound Cottage is the place to stay.

“Comfy, cosy and quaint”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2015

What a fantastic place to stay! Lustleigh is a quaint little hamlet, and despite little in the way of local amenities (bar a welcoming village shop and pub - sadly the local tea room was closed for the winter) it seemed the almost perfect place to stay. Three Pound Cottage itself, well, what a stunning little abode. Situated in the centre of the village but nicely tucked away, you couldn't have wished for a more idyllic place to rest and relax - a beautiful leat running alongside the building, as well as the river wrey just a few footsteps away. What amazed me most of all was how up-to-date the cottage was - very good internet connection (thankfully, as phone reception is poor in the village), 'smart' TVs, a gorgeous inglenook fireplace and wood burner, plus the mother of all heating systems including underfloor heating downstairs - just absolutely spot on. Owners Brian and Michaela were also very accommodating, allowing my wife, child and I the opportunity to arrive a day earlier as the house was vacant. The cottage was super-clean and had all the necessary bits and pieces needed. We even pestered them post-stay for information on where they purchased many of the items the cottage was renovated with, and they were very helpful in that regard too. It's unusual for my family to return for a second stay to one of the many cottages we've rented in the UK over the last 9 years, but Three Pound Cottage is certainly one we would come back to time and again. Thoroughly recommended!

“Beautiful period cottage in the most picturesque villiage of Lustleigh.”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Three Pound Cottage, have recommended this stunning period cottage and village to many of my friends and family. The village is timeless yet so close to everything you can expect from a Devon holiday. Great days out and happily home to the cottage for some real comfort. All the modern needs are in the cottage wifi, smart tv's, everything you need is there. Pub has fantastic menu and nice wine list too so you can stay local if you don't fancy driving ;) will be going back for sure.

“Idyllic cottage and location”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2014

We stayed here for a week in July. The accommodation was perfect - an idyllic cottage and location, lovingly restored. The owners have put a lot of effort into providing every modern convenience. The furnishings were perfectly matched to the traditional thatched cottage but there was also internet access and unlimited movies and satellite TV which kept our teenage son happy. All this within easy reach of Dartmoor. There are several walks right from the front door which will take you onto the moors or you can drive for 15-30 mins and be deep in the heart of England's last great wilderness. There is the local pub for great food and atmosphere right on the doorstep and, further afield, some great restaurants like The Thatched Cottage-Kinsteignton, Bovey Castle and even the 2 starred Gidleigh Park, if the budget stretches that far. If not, the kitchen is very well equipped. More grown-up family joined us through the week but for younger children there is the play park in the orchard just a few steps from the cottage.

“Wow! What can I say, the ultimate holiday break.”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2014

The charming Three Pound Cottage is a quintessential english country cottage with roses around the door, thatched roof and perfectly situated in the delightful village of Lustleigh. But added to which is every conceivable convenience and luxury to make our visit perfect. From under floor heating, a wood burning stove, delightful furnishings and charming touches everywhere one looks, this cottage has to be one of the best on offer Devon!
