    The complete silence at the property, the abundance of gentle walks from outside the front door, and the friendliness of everyone we met on site.

    The caretaker was particularly helpful to us, way beyond what I would have expected. The staff tending the grounds were very helpful too, making us feel very welcome at all times.

    Ideal location

    Our stay at Cider Cottage was very relaxing and the location was just ideal as we had our dog with us and there were many walks around the property. The Abbey was a lovely place to stay in the grounds of and a pub was nearby. We have booked to stay again in February next year.

    Well equipped

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cider Cottage. It was very well equipped throughout and great for young children. We found it far more family friendly than many properties we have stayed in specifically targeting families. We loved walking around the estate and exploring the gardens. There are lots of other lovely NT places nearby - we loved Lydford Gorge, Wembury Beach and Cotehele. We would definitely book through the NT again.

    Fantastic standard

    Loved the location on the Buckland Estate and the welcoming Cream Tea and coffee/tea/sugar was much appreciated. The standard was fantastic and having games/dvds and books available at the cottage was great for the family. Well done to all.
