Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Jacquie's home. Communication was great from the outset and we received clear directions to the address. We received a very warm welcome as Jacquie invited us into her home. We were given a brief tour of the house and were soon left to our own devices. We couldn't fault anything with our room and we both had a comfortable nights sleep. Breakfast was lovely and we both enjoyed chatting about each others travel experiences over a homemade and homegrown breakfast. Thanks again for a lovely visit.

Jacquie made us feel very welcome in her beautiful home. We were invited to have homemade rock cakes and a pot of tea in the garden when we arrived, perfect to unwind from the drive. We felt like we were staying at a friends house and had a comfortable night after having dinner in the Harbour. We all had breakfast together with her scrummy homemade figgy bread. A must stay!

Il cottage di Jacquie e Kevin si trova in una zona riservata e tranquilla, vicina al centro della cittadina e a poca distanza dalle attrazioni che ci hanno spinto a soggiornare a Torquay: il museo, con una sala dedicata ad Agatha Christie e le caverne, molto interessanti. La stanza è bella e affaccia sul giardino privato della proprietà, molto curato. Il bagno è piccolo ma dotato di ogni comfort. Lo consigliamo per coppie in cerca di tranquillità. Jacquie è un'ottima cuoca e su richiesta cucinera per voi una cena con i prodotti dell'orto, a un prezzo assolutamente adeguato all'offerta della zona. Unica nota: la stanza non è dotata di chiave, il che limita un po' la privacy. Jacquie e Kevin hanno hanno davvero piacere ad ospitare persone e ciò si traduce in una relazione aperta, spontanea e amichevole. Grazie ancora per le splendide giornate e la brillante conversazione
