We could not have dreamed of a more beautiful and idyllic setting to unwind after our wedding, and celebrate our first week as husband and wife! Thank you for making us feel so special and taken care of. We can┤t wait to spend many anniversaries here in the future.

Possibly one of the worst weeks of weather one could experience, but what a place to experience it in! Warm, cosy and serene, just what was required to wind down and fully recharge. Certainly one of the most thoughtful and pristine holiday cottages I┤ve ever stayed in, and the hamper of goodies was the icing on the cake! Thank you for sharing this awesome little place!

We┤ve had a wonderful stay at Sojourn. It┤s a beautiful cottage which is so well equipped and decorated, with exquisite attention to detail and quality. We┤ve spent so many hours enjoying the sunshine in your lovely, peaceful garden. My husband really appreciated the birthday card and bottle of local sparkling wine. We look forward to returning.

Another fabulous stay in the cottage that has a very special place in our hearts. We are going back to London feeling totally refreshed, and our third visit has been every bit as enjoyable as the first! Thank you so much for the delicious Easter egg, this was a very thoughtful touch. We will certainly be back again!

We have had an amazing 3-night weekend stay. The cottage is exceedingly well equipped and is a delight to cook in. The gardens are beautiful and immaculately maintained which made it a real pleasure to relax in, and watch the day draw to a close. A real retreat from hectic London life. We can┤t wait to return to Sojourn.

We loved it as much as we did the last time we were here! Thank you Jane and Alistair, and thank you for the lovely card and treats!

Our second stay at this utterly perfect home from home. Yes, we did come back! We made it through a raging blizzard on a journey which took twice as long as it should have but were rewarded by Sojourn; beautifully lit up and blanketed with snow! We knew the travel would be worth it. We had a blissful Saturday ´snowed in´, then tramped up to Sharp Tor, sinking in a foot of snow under glorious sunshine! We managed to get out to lovely Bovey Castle to hand-feed the swans and take tea in the grand reception room. Highly recommended. The cottage is, as ever, a luxurious haven where absolutely everything has been thought of, thank you. We have seen it in the summer and now under Narnia-like snow. Which means we still have Spring, Autumn and Christmas!

We had such a wonderful time here for my partner´s birthday. Thank you so much for all the wonderful treats and for making this weekend so special. We have absolutely loved it. The cottage is simply exquisite and we will definitely be back!

We have had the most blissful time in a picture perfect cottage, so much so, I┤ve ordered some similar items to remind myself of our stay! From falling asleep in the garden under cosy throws, to al fresco dinners by candlelight, to dancing in the kitchen. It was a second honeymoon for us! We spent many happy hours in Shaldon and indulged in great scones from The Pantry. A beautiful cottage, in beautiful Devon and one we will return to. I am so sad to be leaving but have taken many memories that will last a lifetime. Our break has made me fall in love all over again with my darling husband!

Thank you so much to the owners of Sojourn for everything that you have done. Above and beyond to make this week the tonic that both of us so desperately needed. This cottage is magical, if a place could have healing properties, this would be it. We have both slept properly here for the first time in months. Thank you again, we are very much looking forward to coming back.

From the minute we opened the door, we knew it was perfect for our weekend. So many wonderful memories have been made that we will never forget. The fire, candles and the music system were all amazing, not to forget the lovely bath. We will definitely return! This place is heaven and has recharged our batteries. A romantic birthday weekend for my partner. Thank you.

We┤ve stayed in a lot of cottages on Dartmoor and this is by far our favourite! Peaceful and private without feeling isolated. Beautifully decorated with everything one could need in a home away from home. So handy having the Post Office Stores, pub & restaurant in walking distance. Fabulous walks from the doorstep and Castle Drogo an easy car journey.

Such a magical cottage! Beautifully appointed and peaceful, with everything you could need. We couldn´t have asked for a more perfect few days away. There are so many incredible walks on your doorstep here as well as some fab pubs and restaurants all within easy reach. Thank you so much, a much needed retreat from London. We don´t want to leave, but will do feeling happier, healthier and more relaxed! Can´t wait to come back!

Enchanted Cottage! This is probably one of the very best cottages we have ever stayed in and the perfect choice for our mini-moon! Beautifully designed, comfortable and exquisite in every way. Wonderful meal at "The Old Inn" and excellent rib of beef from the farm shop "Oinkers!"

We have just come to the end of another fantastic weekend in Devon, the county really is most beautiful. Sojourn is a jewel, set in a charming village and surrounded by amazing walks and scenery. This has been our second stay here and Sojourn, once again, lived up to our hopes and dreams. We leave wanting more, and will return! Until next time, take care of Sojourn; relaxing, elegant, charming, cosy and delightful!

We had a lovely weekend stay at Sojourn. The cottage was beautiful and had all the amenities we could have wished for. We also had a massage arranged which was exceptional. Thank you so much.

Had the most wonderful holiday in this picture perfect cottage. Opening the gate to the garden was like going down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland to a magical place. The oh so romantic bedroom in calming colours, the snug living room and a well appointed kitchen all made for a wonderful break. From falling asleep in the garden under cosy throws, al fresco dinners by candlelight, to dancing in the kitchen made us laugh and cry with happiness at the same time. Thank you for the memories.

Our pre holiday itinerary was jam-packed with National Trust visits which would have pleased my very organised father. However, upon arriving at Sojourn I decided to fall in love with my husband all over again. Thank you, a beautiful cottage!

Sojourn, what a magical place! Everything we have wanted and needed was here. The bath was divine, the local produce was yummy but just being lost in our own little haven was glorious. Wonderful winter sunlight, discovering new villages, eating and drinking our way through Dartmoor┤s finest culinary delights. Our favourite highlights at Sojourn: The break, finding packs of playing cards, lots of candles and the stunning garden. We just got married and the lovely card was a treat too. We will be back I am sure!

We had an incredible stay at Sojourn, the cottage was beautiful and the views and walks were even better. The basket of food left for us was amazing and the complimentary home made bread and whiskey was absolutely incredible! We loved every second of our stay, the cottage felt so warm and cosy that we barely ever wanted to leave it! The room with the copper tub was so elegantly designed and the cottage throughout had amazing decor, from the rugs to the ornaments to the small decorations across both floors. Plus the Sonos sound system was just spectacular, absolutely astonishing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely look forward to staying there again. It was a perfect romantic getaway and thank you to Unique Home Stays and the owners for making sure that everything went well.

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely cottage with us! And for the card and lovely hamper of goodies waiting for us when we arrived. We have had a lovely, relaxing few days here exploring the moor. It´s been a lovely end to our honeymoon, we are just sad to have to go home! Thanks again.

We´ve had a truly wonderful week. The cottage was even better than expected with lovely little extras that made it very special. Also such a fantastic location to explore Dartmoor - fabulous walks from the front door down to Fingle Bridge, Castle Drago and trips to Lydford Gorge. All topped off with fantastic food at the Old Inn and Gidleigh Park - who could ask for more. Thank you!

One word to really describe Sojourn is "idyllic". Thanks for such a lovely stay in such a beautiful cottage, in a stunning location. You have thought of everything!

Beautiful, oh so comfortable cottage. Loved the extra touches and sense of luxury throughout. Truly 5 star and a perfect place to celebrate our honeymoon. Thank you!

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely cottage with us. I don´t know how it could have been anymore perfect! As an Interior Designer, your touches were not lost on me and were utterly amazing! As a true anglophile, this place has fulfilled my fantasy of living in the English countryside much more than I ever thought possible. It was a truly magical, wonderful dream come true and leaving brings a tear to my eye and a tug on my heart!

Could not think of a more perfect place for our honeymoon. The cottage and location are exactly what we wanted to relax and reflect on our special day - Truly a stunning place. Thank you for a wonderful stay - we don┤t want to leave!

Sublime! No detail overlooked, even the hot water bottle! Thank you for such splendid accommodation in idyllic Devon.

Thank you so much for a wonderful week in Sojourn, a little piece of paradise! The bath was sublime, as was the attention to every detail - a heart┤s desire! We will be back!

Beautiful! A lovely stay in a lovely cottage in a lovely county. We needed a relaxing few days and we got it, just a pity we have to leave.

We had a wonderful time in Sojourn, it┤s truly a lovely little cottage, beautifully decorated and furnished with a great garden too. We really did enjoy our stay, helped by the wonderful weather. Very many thanks again for a wonderful stay - the hamper was also excellent.

Sojourn is a walker´s delight, there are so many brilliant areas to explore from this lovely cottage! The River Teign is a short distance away and we even walked to the lovely National Trust property, Castle Drogo.

We had a wonderful stay at Sojourn, it was pure indulgence! We walked to the local pub and enjoyed a delicious lunch followed by a lazy afternoon in the Spa room; the copper bath is a real treat on a winter´s day, we truly relaxed and switched off for the weekend!

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend away. We felt utterly spoiled the whole time and just loved the copper bath. You have created such a special home, in such a wonderful area. We are looking forward to our next winter getaway!
