Comments from our visitors

We are impressed with the service we have received from Hideaways. Our stay at “Drover’s” was lovely. Even though the weather was cold and wet, we were warm and comfortable, with every need catered for, and the welcome from the owners was second-to-none. Wonderful walk from the property straight onto the Somerset levels. Thank you.

Mr & Mrs N Davies, April 2012

I just wanted to email you and say thank you for your help with our booking at The Owl Box for the Jubilee weekend. We absolutely fell in love with the Owl Box, and definitely want to go back sometime (and try some other places from your site)! I will definitely be recommending your site too - everything was so easy.

Devon is a county of contrasting scenery, the remote moorland of Dartmoor and Exmoor, beautiful scenery along both its north and south coasts and the two historic cities of Exeter and Plymouth.

Dorset cottage holidays place you right in the heart of a county that has maintained its wild and open feel in an age where we seem to be expanding ever more into the countryside.
