Once the guardian of the entrance to the manor house, Warleigh Lodge is an attractive stone, detached holiday cottage of Gothic style architecture, with superb countryside views across the River Tamar to Cornwall in the distance beyond. The lodge has a large garden with lawn and small woodland copse. Light usage Wi-Fi is included but streaming is unavailable. Close to the village of Tamerton Foliot, a suburb of Plymouth, it is in a quiet location surrounded by open country, and could hardly be better placed for access to the many varied attractions of the surrounding area. Dartmoor (15 minutes’ drive), home of Dartmoor Prison, and the ’Hound of the Baskervilles’, its many tors, moors and the well known and loved Dartmoor ponies roaming the high moorland; or travel towards the coastline and explore the many coves and sandy beaches of both south Devon and across the bridge into Cornwall. Many beaches to choose from are less than half an hour’s drive away. Plymouth and the waterfront region (20 minutes’ drive to the city centre) is a fascinating mixture of bustling modern city, with a shopping mall with all the high street brands, and maritime history. Visit the Hoe with Smeaton’s Tower and superb views of the bay across to Cornwall. The historic Barbican area is worth a visit with its cobbled streets, national marine aquarium, Plymouth Gin Distillery, harbour with fishing boats, antique shops and individual boutiques. Shop and pub ¼ mile.

Lovely cottage with amazing views from the conservatory. The garden was ideal for the dogs but in need of some work eg the wooden edging around the paths and lawns was falling apart and a possible trip hazard. Having holidayed many times in cottages around the UK we are used to a few more provisions, maybe having more than one toilet roll in the bathrooms and more than one towel per a person for the week. Nothing major that couldn’t be improved on with a little more thought.

Very poor approach through urban housing ,typical of Plymouth post war architecture , difficult to access parking not easy if you have a modern car.No welcome pack , first time in 30 years of Cottages4you or their previous incarnations ! No initial supply of wood, information pack directed us to log pile outside totally unusable. Front door needs update, alarm did not disarm properly and on leaving property at end of stay did not arm correctly. First impression- Lodge not cleaned to expected standard. Bed linen in main room had blood stains and mattress soiled. Kitchen not suitable for 6 adults, no storage for provisions, washing machine was left on. Crockery- most of the plates were chipped need replacing. Hoover did not work when we tried to use it. The toaster is very rusty, needs replacing. Taps in kitchen incorrectly labelled. Two radiators in second and third bedroom did not work - need servicing. Wall lights in lounge not working, bulbs throughout property in assortment of styles and shapes. Some not working. Internet access perfectly adequate throughout our stay. Curtain in lounge needed attention, hooks had come off and had been left on mantle, we easily fixed this. Both bathrooms exceptional, shower was very good but chrome shelving in main en suite very rusty and needs replacing.Views from conservatory exceptional, apart from local landowner spreading manure throughout our stay, however we enjoy watching tractors, coming from a rural environment ourselves. The conservatory does have several drips from guttering which was quite noisy and woke our son up.The large trees in the garden need attention to avoid damage to the Lodge.Garden pathway edging rotten and coming away, trip hazard for children or infirm visitors. The gardener who came on Wednesday,cut grass, trimmed shrubs also clipped back several flowering daffodils. Photographs on web site give a favourable impression of the Lodge. Difficult to understand need for £200 security deposit. Overall, the Lodge did not meet our expectations based on experiences of over thirty years of cottage and country house rentals both in the UK and abroad. However we did enjoy our holiday due to close proximity to Dartmoor and South Devon. Thank you.
