"Lovely little cottage in a bucolic setting"

Lovely little cottage, and a great spot to get away from the hustle and bustle. Close to the local pub (The New Inn), which serves very good food in addition to a choice of 9 different types of cider (obligatory for a stay in Devon!)

"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!

"Beautifully relaxed weekend!!!"

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.

"A magic place to return again and again and ..."

First of all a big "Thank you!" to Carol and Gareth! You have been extraordinary hosts and we would love to come back to Owlacombe Mill as soon as possible. We loved the warm welcome, the homemade scones and marmelade and enjoyed cream tea in the beautiful front garden and barbecues in the back garden (which is directly accessible from th bedroom balcony). Everything was so well prepared and equipped that we have been able to focus on enjoying our holidays instead of having to organize things. In fact, The Old Granary at Owlacombe Mill has been furnished in a way that you immediately feel at home: A well equipped kitchen with "real stuff" not just decoration, i. e. kitchen utensils and table ware of quality and of one style instead of the wild potpourri of styles that you usually find in cottages, a beautiful and cozy living room with wood stove, books and DVD TV set, a bright and friendly bedroom with balcony and a splendid view and a lovely bathroom with a spaciuos shower. All in all, this place has everything one's heart could desire! Furthermore you find a nice Pub in walking distance with great food and a fine choice of local ales. If you are looking for a quite and peaceful time for recreation and relaxation, you should give this place in the heart of the breathtaking Devon nature a try! We have been both lucky and happy to find such a magic place!!!

Thank you for the glowing review! We aim to provide our guests with all they might need for a relaxing holiday in peaceful surroundings. The'home from home' we would enjoy staying in. Look forward to you both returning very soon.

"Owlacombe Mill is paradise on earth"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Owlacombe Mill. The Granary was cosy, very complete and the garden beautiful. Gareth and Carol are perfect hosts and warm people. My husband just loved Carol's scones.

Thank you for your kind words. I will have to compile a recipe for my scones and send you a copy. Its always a pleasure to share our home with such lovely guests. Look forward to your return visit.

"Excellent accommodation-Peaceful location"

Hosts Gareth and Carole were very welcoming and helpful on arrival, as was the welcome pack which included a cream tea. Location in valley idyllic, next to a bubbling brook. Standard of accommodation extremely high, well thought out use of space. Upstairs balcony and private garden of the Granary has stunning views of surrounding fields. Both areas are wonderful sun traps, and excellent places for the well deserved glass of wine after a days walking or cycling in the pretty Devon countryside that surround the Mill. Highly recommend the short walk up hill to the New Inn, where the food and company was excellent. All in all the Granary is a fantastic place to stay, already booked a return visit.

Thank you both for your lovely review. Very glad you enjoyed your stay. You are quite right the pub serve fantastic food. Well deserved after your cycling and walking excursions. See you both very soon.

"Total relaxation and perfect in every way"

The only negative was that we didnt stay long enough. Carol and gareth have a hidden gem and we already want to plan to come back again. Truely perfect. Quiet, peacful, cosy and comfortable. We even found the locals extremely friendly and can not wait to come back. Get away from the city and everyday stress and do it here just stay as long as you can. Thank you both Jade & Vaughn x

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay, we look forward to welcoming you back. Hopefully the weather will have improved and you can spend longer relaxing in the hammock.

"Wonderful getaway! Warm, Cosy and extremely welcoming!"

We had a wonderful time at the mill. The details and touches put in where fantastic and the effort put into making it a cosy home getaway was truly appreciated! The log fire was a treat! and the scones on arrival prepared us for a wonderfully relaxing weekend! Thank You So Much To Carol & Gareth!

Thank you for your lovely comments. We are glad you enjoyed your short break. It was a pleasure to meet you both. We look forward to welcoming you back soon, maybe next time it will be warm enough to enjoy a barbecue in the garden.

"simply stunning"

The perfect idyll, to get away from the hustle and bustle and settle down in very comfortable surrounding with a log burner and a glass of red. sublime!!! glorious views great walks through the loviest of woodland and a bubbling brook right outside the door. A delightful welcome pk of home made scones and clotted cream and lots of goodies in the fridge,all locally sourced and delicious. Made to feel very special guests by wonderful hosts who believe nothing is too much trouble.

"Tranquil, idylic comforting stay"

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at owlacombe mill. Waking up to the sound of the brook, with incredible scenery and surrounded by complete tranquility. Gareth and Carol are extremely welcoming and helpful who gave us great insight to the history of the mill and surrounding areas. This is the ideal setting if relaxation is needed. Peaceful, beautiful with the most comfortable cloud like bed. We will be back

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in The Old Granary. What a lovely description of the bed 'cloud like'. Cetainly describes a comfy nights sleep perfectly. We will look forward to welcoming you both back in the future.
