"The cottage itself was lovely, spacious and well fitted, its position with the views of the golf course was exceptional. We did have a problem with the hot water for one day but once reported the problem was resolved by the next morning. In all a lovely cottage we would be happy to use again." Jan - September 2020
"Great location, lovely amenities, nice decor." Michael - September 2020
"Beautiful cottage, good location, the pool at the hotel was great for children. Very slightly offset from the other cottages on the square making it more private. House was well set up with everything we needed (cutlery a bit sparse due to COVID) and the decoration was simple but beautiful. Better downstairs layout than some of the other cottages with easy access to the garden. Would happily recommend and happily stay there again. Thank you dart valley cottages" Lottie - August 2020
"A very nice cottage, clean, modern and convenient. A great location for a golfer or anyone else." Alan 31st July 2020
"We had a fantastic stay at Hawke cottage. The cottage is very homely and my children in particular settled in very quickly. The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked. Location wise it is brilliant especially being in the grounds of the hotel. Beautiful Dartmouth is only a 5 minute drive down the road and there was no shortage of wonderful places to visit. We shall most definitely be back!" Susan - August 2019
"Spent a brilliant 9 days in this cottage with my husband and 2 young children. It's in a super pretty location surrounded by beautiful countryside and we had use of the hotel facilities including the indoor swimming pool and tennis court. A great location for exploring Devon and a very comfortable house." Susan - August 2019
"We had a very enjoyable stay. The cottage is easy to find and in a great location for Dartmouth and surrounding areas. Having use of the golf club facilities is a real bonus, particularly the gym, swimming pool and sauna / spa. You need to take your own towels for the pool, they are not provided, but can be hired for a £1 per towel. Children are allowed in the pool between 9-10.30am and 4-6pm. The food in the golf club was excellent, the Sunday carvery is good value for money. The cottage itself is very well kitted out, everything you need for a comfortable stay. There is ample car parking too. The small garden is lovely overlooking the golf course. All the other surrounding cottages and apartments were occupied, but there was very little noise which was good. " Juliette - April 2019
