The cottage was amazing - the photos looked good, but the reality was even better. It was a surprise to my girlfriend and she spent the first 10 minutes after arriving squealing with delight at everything.
Puddleduck is a snug getaway which is really well-equipped and very homely. We´ve thoroughly enjoyed exploring the local area but have found ourselves curled up on the sofa in front of the fire far more than we intended because it is so lovely! We are returning home very relaxed and keen to visit this area again in the future. Thank you.
We have had a glorious week at Puddleduck, renamed ´Mary Poppins Cottage´ as it´s practically perfect in every way! Only one complaint, that the time in Devon goes way too quickly. Thank you Helen for all the little extras, we will be back but for two weeks hopefully.
A wonderful cottage which is just perfect for two. Excellent pubs close by and good food at both. The local farm shop serves fantastic breakfasts. We have visited Devon many times but have never explored this area before.
We absolutely loved our stay at Puddleduck. The village and countryside were beautiful and the cottage was too. The touches by Helen made it feel like a home from home. An absolutely enchanting stay.
Thank you for letting us stay in such a quaint home for our weekend away. Such lovely details and thought have gone into the cottage. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time in Devon and at Puddleduck which has great proximity to the pub! Thank you for a lovely stay and we will definitely be back.
The owners thought of absolutely everything that would make our stay an absolute pleasure. From the home baked scones (and jam and clotted cream in the fridge) to the shower caps and all the little extras that were thought of. We had an amazing time and loved Puddleduck.
We had a lovely week in this fantastic little cottage. It was very peaceful and quiet. Good location to visit the local area. It was nice to have the fire on a couple of evenings as this is something we can´t do at home. Great local pubs with great food.
We had a wonderful week at this lovely, little, cosy cottage which had everything we needed for a great holiday. The location is simply brilliant for walks, beaches and food with twos pubs very close by. Thank you so much for making us feel so at home.
We loved Puddleduck! The location was perfect and the village is filled with wonderful locals. The long walks along the coast were amazing, our favourites being the start point lighthouse area and the estuary area near Kingston. Thank you Helen for sharing your home with us.
We have had a lovely week in this fantastic cottage. Puddleduck is very peaceful, quiet and in a good location to visit the local area. It was nice to have an open fire on a couple of evenings as this is something we cannot do at home. Lovely local pubs serving great food.
We couldn´t have asked for a lovelier place to spend a long weekend. The interior and exterior were both beautifully and thoughtfully finished, and the cottage included everything you might want or need; from slippers to a well-stocked bookshelf, to a little sewing kit. Puddleduck is also wonderfully located close to a lovely pub and a fantastic farm shop.
We have had a lovely weekend, we have visited Torcross, Blackpool Sands, Salcombe, Dartmouth and Kingsbride. The food was lovely in both local pubs but we preferred The Church Inn for atmosphere. Puddleduck is beautiful and to top it off I was proposed to this weekend here in this very cottage! Thank you for a lovely, romantic short break.
We booked for an anniversary break, so we wanted a cosy cottage in a quiet location close to a beach and a pub. Puddleduck ticked every box!

A beautiful cottage in a great location. A lovely week had by all with Rocco especially loving his walks (and swims). Thank you.
What a fabulous cottage and so beautifully appointed. The attention to detail didn´t go unnoticed - even very tasteful Christmas decs! we were very lucky to enjoy the carol service at the church and two festive coastal walks. We love the village and surrounding area. An indulgent three nights for us without our five children and four cats!! Thank you
We had a lovely stay! A beautiful and very comfortable cottage. Enjoyed lovely walks along the coast - up to Start Point, Fish and chips at The Shack in Beesands, meandered around the bird reserve. Have really appreciated the peace and getting away from it all! Thank you
Thank goodness for the open fire during a cold, windy spell. The cottage is gorgeously decorated and the kitchen is really well stocked with everything you need for a short stay. Stokenham and the South Hams are gorgeous and really easily accessible. Thank you!
Beautiful cottage, well located. We had a wonderful time, great walks, good food and an open fire! Thank you!
We chose the cottage for it´s location and it was perfect! Lovingly renovated and exactly how we wanted it to be! Korax our Ridgeback loved the walks too. Big thank you, we had a wonderful weekend!!
