Feedback from our Guests

As an accommodation service provider to the South Devon tourist market, we strive to offer our guests a quality service. Whilst we believe that Esmé's Cottage offers quality in very comfortable surroundings, it is only by asking guests for both positive and negative feedback at the end of their stay do we gain an insight into how our service is being received. A range of guest comments are published below:

"Spacious cottage in a good location, within 5 minutes walk to the centre of Ivybridge. Very well equipped kitchen. Lovely little garden which is private and quiet. The bedrooms have lots of storage and the beds are very comfortable. Lovely bathroom. "

MR, Redditch, Worcs

"A big thank you! We had a fabulous week, mostly due to the warm, comfortable and homely environment your cottage created for our whole family."

NO, Littlehampton, West Sussex

"This little gem is an absolute delight!"

JA, Taplow, Bucks

"It is well furnished, excellent kitchen, very comfy bedrooms; everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday."

MH, Sedgefield, Durham

"Nothing about this cottage to improve on, it's fantastic and we would recommend it highly! Even a good bottle of red awaits your arrival!"

PS, Stockton-on-Tees, Durham

"Amazing, everytime I come to Esme's Cottage. Don't know if it's the pillows, the duvet or the mattress, but I sleep like a log! Thanks Nicki.

JA, Rugby, Warks

"Wow! Straight away we thought a good choice had been made. The cottage has a real home from home feel, and great thought has been put into the items available for peoples' use whilst staying there. Our stay was very enjoyable, and we will definitely recommend the cottage to family and friends"

MP, Witney, Oxon

"Loved the cottage and felt very at home there. The girls didn't want to leave!! Thanks again.

WH, Sheffield, Yorks

"We had a really great time, due to the location of the cottage, the home comforts and information provided within your holiday home. Your website gave us the impression it was just what we were looking for, but in actual fact it far exceeded our expectations. We have stayed in numerous privately owned holiday homes, both here and abroad, and so far yours is by far the best.

We loved the feature windows upstairs, the wooden beams and the feeling that the property had been renovated with care and imagination. We will happily recommend Esmé's to our friends/family and hope that other people we know will have the chance to enjoy staying in your property. We ourselves hope to return again some time in the future."

DP, Heathfield, E. Sussex

"A delightful cottage I have to say, far more spacious and comfortable than those I usually book! Felt like 'home' straight away. Location seemed ideal, short walk into town, a park down the lane opposite, ready access to walks by the River Erme and onto the moor direct from the cottage. "

RR, Harrogate, N. Yorks

"Your cottage is delightful. We will certainly be recommending to friends and family.

DS, Guildford, Surrey

"We very much enjoyed our stay in your Cottage. Thanks. We were impressed by the comfort it afforded us, for the standard of the refurbishment and for all the facilities provided. We could not have asked for more. Its location is excellent - both for the amenities of Ivybridge and as a base to explore Devon. I am sure that there will be further visits to Devon. We now know where to stay !"

DB, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire

"Esme's cottage was everything we had expected it to be. We found the cottage exemplary in every way. I hope you were happy with us as visitors and that we will be able to have the cottage again during the coming year."

SH, Letchworth, Herts

"The location was ideal. Not town centre (so quiet enough), but easy walking distance to amenities. We loved the fact Ivybridge is close to Dartmoor, Plymouth, Cornwall and wonderful beaches. From the outside, the cottage was certainly the nicest on the row, with ample parking either outside or up the hill by the church. The cottage was clean and tidy with lots of space, and pleasantly furnished. All bedrooms were nice sizes, and the lounge and kitchen areas were also spacious.

AS, Bedford, Beds

"A beautifully clean bright space in a lovely quiet location. The cottage was very well equipped and there were things there that I hadn't expected, like barbeque tools and outdoor dishes. I also didn't expect towels for the beach, which is great."

MB, Edinburgh, Lothian

"Location perfect for us - Quiet part of town, not busy. Cottage facilities were wonderful. Exceeded expectations. Everything you could need and more. A home, not a holiday let."

MH, Sedgefield, Durham

"When we opened the door, we were pleasantly surprised. The cottage was exceptionally clean and well-presented throughout. I have to say that the cottage has the most extensive facilities I have experienced in any rented holiday cottage. Exceptional value for money!"

MS, Banbury, Oxon

"Wow! It looked so welcoming and tidy (a real home as opposed to a standard holiday let) - I thought the kitchen was fantastic in size and had absolutely everything we needed. The cottage is even better than it looks on the website (and it looks good on there!) - it just has a lovely loved feel about it, which is untypical of holiday cottages and definitely makes yours stand out from the crowd"

DH, Cookham, Berks

"A smart, clean and attractively furnished property in a central, but quiet, location. Excellent facilities, very clean and extremely well presented. On the middle Saturday, we received ample fresh towels and the beds were cleaned and beautifully made - even to the point of arranging my children's teddy bears beautifully on their beds, which delighted them! We would highly recommend Esmé's Cottage."

DP, Bucharest, Romania

"You open the front door and think ‘Wow!’"

DW, Maidenhead, Berks

"A lovely cottage, and so clean, so thank you. You've done it really well. It's easy to get out & about from here, and there is so much to do in every direction."

JJ, Farnham, Surrey

"We fell in love with the cottage straight away. It was absolutely charming and very tastefully appointed. There's much more living space than the external appearance would suggest."

PD, West Wickham, Kent

"We had a lovely holiday and enjoyed the accommodation at Esmé’s Cottage. We were pleasantly surprised upon entry to the cottage. It’s the nicest cottage on the block, with an easy walk to all the facilities in the town."

AF, Brisbane, Australia

"We had a great time and loved the cottage. Overall the facilities were excellent. The living room looked really stylish and comfortable. It was clean and tidy. A very good feeling from the start. The location in relation to the town centre is good too."

SH, Reigate, Surrey


"The cottage was spotless, very well presented, and had everything we needed for a very enjoyable week."

KA, Oxford, Oxon


"Many thanks for an enjoyable Christmas week. My daughter and family were very taken with the cottage and will be recommending it to friends and relatives."

JS, Ivybridge, Devon

"We had a lovely holiday as we were very comfortable in your cottage. It looks well-kept from the outside, and there were no problems parking to unload. Inside, it was tastefully decorated, with a cosy feeling. The bottle of wine was a lovely touch, too. We have stayed in many cottages over the years, and I would say yours is the best equipped. Definitely value for money. "

KW, Swindon, Wilts

"The cottage was again spotless on our arrival and the scones, flowers and wine were a big hit. We very much look forward to having the opportunity to stay at the cottage again."

PD, West Wickham, Kent

"We were delighted when we entered the cottage. The facilities were fantastic and it's in a perfect place to explore from. We had a wonderful week."

BH, Blandford Forum, Dorset

"We had a fantastic holiday and the family loved the cottage. Everything in the cottage was perfect. Would stay again if we come back to England."

EG, Killarney, Ireland

"The cottage is clean & stylish, with very good facilities. It's in an excellent location - quiet, but close to shops. We had a great holiday."

RW, Nottingham, Notts

"Pleased with proximity to the river and to the town, the cottage looks very good. It was bigger than we expected it to be, and the quality of the facilities exceeded our expectations. Also, your approach to sensible pricing is very refreshing!"

AD, Christchurch, Dorset

"It’s a very nice cottage. Nicely laid out, well-equipped and well furnished. Definitely good value for money."

AW, Wimborne, Dorset

"The cottage is very well appointed, clean & tidy, with nice facilities and in a very good location for walks, etc. There's also plenty of room to relax in. We couldn't fault it!"

SL, Holyport, Berks

"Ivybridge is ideal in terms of proximity to Devon/Cornwall and the various places we intended visiting. The cottage is in really good condition and felt like the sort of quality and décor that I'd be happy with in my house. Everything felt comfortable and clean, and the proximity to shops, leisure centre and park all made it very attractive."

CS, Welwyn Garden City, Herts
