    We are a group of 10, 4 adults & 6 children from age 10 - 16. We had a great time at Candlelight. We ordered groceries from Asda the week before, which were recieved by Charlotte for us on the morning of our arrival. Charlotte & Keith had left a great welcome package of cakes, local snacks & wines for us which was a really nice touch. Although we ordered cleaning materials & hand washes etc with our shop all of this was already provided. The cottage is very large, spacious, tastefully decorated & spotlessly clean. Charlotte met us to say hi - no lectures on do's & don'ts just a friendly welcome. The owners live next door across the cottage's private car park but they did not interfere with us they were just there if we needed them. It is a beautiful cottage with roof beams & period features. Downstairs is a large hallway, two spacious twin / double bedrooms, a large living room (with a large DTV), large kitchen with all untensils & appliances you could possibly need, a dining area with seating for 10 and a utility room with a washing machine, tumble dryer, wc & boiler. We had unlimited hot water all day which was great. Upstairs are 3 more bedrooms - 2 en-suite doubles & a twin. There is also a large bathroom with wc, shower, bath & sink. All bedrooms were very well finished with ample hangers for clothes & comfortable beds. Outside there are back & front gardens with ample seating in both, a hot tub which was checked each day for water quality, a pond & a small lawn at the rear. There were plenty of towels provided for everyone plus extra large towels, robes, slippers & flip flops for use with the hot tub. The cottage is located in a quiet rural setting with 2 local pubs within walking distance, both of which serve food. Totnes is the local town less than 2 miles away - the seaside towns of Brixham, Paignton, Torbay & Torquay are not far away. There was a comprehensive information pack with everything from emergency information to local restaurants & beaches etc in the hallway. It was just perfect for us and we would love to go back. Just for info if you are expecting to visit the local seaside towns regularly it is worth going to the Tourist Information Offices & buying a 7 day car park pass for £35. These are valid in all local council controlled car parks (which is most of them). There is no such thing as free car parking in the towns and it can mount up so definately worth considering for peace of mind. Also recommend the boat / steam railway / bus round robin trips from Torquay & Dartmouth. Many thanks to Charlotte & Keith. It was great.

    We had a lovely stay at Candlelight Cottage. The cottage is spacious and Charlotte has thought of everything from dressing gowns to a wonderful welcome package. The kitchen is really well equipped. She was incredibly thoughtful about the sleeping arrangements for our young children. We were slightly nervous about the breakables around as we have three young kids who are into everything! The cottage is well located for Totnes (a few miles away) but even the local pub which is a walk away was a bit of a stretch for us. Overall a lovely location and beautiful traditional cottage with mod cons!

    Waste of hard earned money but at least the hosts are cashing in. Felt like being in the big brother house at times.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; It is with a heavy heart and great regret that we have had to ask your party of 9 teenage lads to leave the cottage. Not only were we deeply dismayed at the drunken disorderly behaviour of the group, but felt very let down by the fact that we were personally reassured that you would take care of the property. We clearly gave you the benefit of the doubt. We very much regret that you have forfeited your holiday as a result of the break in contract on several counts, which meant that no refund was due from us nor from the agency. As a business we simply cannot afford to issue a refund in such a case, though honestly we would have preferred to have been able to. It would not have been possible to re-let the cottage for that same week and we would therefore have been out of pocket by a whole lot more than your individual contribution. That you all agreed at the time that things got out of hand and you were in the breach of the contract makes your review all the more hurtful. We previously stated that we would be sending a bill to the party leader for the damages but later decided that we would let that go, seeing as no refund would be due. We also agreed to let you all stay an extra night so that the 3 nominated drivers could recover sufficiently from their hangovers to be able to drive back safely. We do understand that you feel your only recourse is to post negative reviews online - easy to do. It is harder to accept when we are in the wrong and learn from the consequences of our actions.
