    We stayed at Monkey Puzzle Cottage for one week from 11/7/15. There were 7 of us, with ages ranging from 14 to 84. The cottage is in a quiet location, yet ideally situated for the roads network. This was just as well since most of the things we wanted to do were an hour’s drive in different directions on each day so we were well located even though there was little on the doorstep. The cottage was clean and well-kept and the upstairs bedrooms were bright and airy, the two downstairs rooms were rather gloomy though. The gardens were a delight and someone obviously spends a lot of time on them! The kitchen was small but useable, and storage included an under-counter fridge with freezer compartment plus a separate under counter upright freezer. To be honest we could have done with less freezer space and a bigger fridge as two shelves and a salad box for 7 people was not nearly enough. Take your own knives or a good sharpener as none of those provided (and there were plenty) was really usable. Had we read the details properly we may not have booked as there is no dishwasher – essential for a party of this size. The welcome book consisted of lots of leaflets for attractions across Devon and Cornwall, but little in the way of local information such as which local pubs were best , what to do about recycling, or other useful information. We had a great time as we rarely get together as a family, but will probably go somewhere else next year as we felt we had done this area and perhaps need somewhere that involves less driving on a daily basis.

    Lovely cottage and facilities. We all had a great time and would come again. Everything was wonderful, the only things that could be improved were having a few sharp knives that were not wobbly, and more comfortable beds.

    Overall we had a great holiday. Monkey Puzzle Cottage is lovely with open space for grandchildren to play and you can keep an eye on them from either the kitchen or lounge. Only disappointment was the games room which had been one of the main reasons for choosing this cottage. Pool table could have been better i.e. level, and area was rather cluttered.
