    Wonderful stay

    The stunning location, and beautiful spec of this cottage made for the most wonderful stay. We had the most wonderful stay, and Bridget the caretaker was really friendly. The road down to the cottage is very uneven however (with potholes) and I think it would be helpful to let future visitors know this.

    Lovely holiday

    Lovely stay for myself and family. Easy for the older girls and I to commute back to plymouth for school and work and a lovely holiday for husband and 2year old! Buckland Abbey is a special place for us as we visit often throughout the open season, and it was equally special to be there in winter.
