Honey Cottage Devon
Genuine Comments from our Guestbook

Here are some excerpts from the Honey Cottage Guest book:

"Really gorgeous cottage, lovely setting & beautiful weather! Haven't slept this well in a very long time. Who needs somewhere tropical for their Honeymoon when you have Devon. Thank you for a lovely stay" Liz and Neil, Galway, Ireland (March 2009)

"Had a wonderful week for New Year, managed to keep warm with the log burner. The local pub, The Malt Scoop is great, or a brisk hours walk away is the London Inn at Morchard Bishop serves excellent food .... Honey Cottage is very cosy and has everything you need. Lapford has a good butchers shop that is worth supporting. All the locals are really friendly..." Liz and Dom, London (Jan 2009)

"A wonderfully warm and cosy cottage with the log burner blazing to keep away the winter chills. We had a wonderful break, we can't recommend it highly enough, although we'll try!" Jason & Sally, Bristol (Dec 2008)

"Many thanks, has been a wonderful few days away. Thank you very much for the welcome hamper, gorgeous marmalade! The cottage is very comfy and has everything you need. Thanks so much for your kind hospitality" Shelley & Tony, Bracknell, Berkshire (Dec 2008)

"Excellent cottage in a sleepy village. The log burner is lovely... We were made very welcome. Helen, your home made marmalades and chutneys are yummy. Thank you so much for everything and we will come back again" Sam & Russell, Leagrave, Bedfordshire (Nov 2008)

"Lovely cottage, very comfortable and so nice to return to in the evening with the log burning stove. The local church is worth a visit and the locals are very friendly. It was ideal for us to visit our Devon relatives. Thank you for all your hospitality Helen." Gerald, Cynthia & Lucy, Snelston, Nr Ashbourne, Derbyshire (November 2008)
