Simply beautiful

We were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome by our hosts, who were lovely. The Cottage itself is beautiful and has everything that you need. The cottage is clean, comfortable and homely. It is located down a very long narrow lane, but this adds to the feeling of getting away from it all. The cottage is situated actually along the Tarka Trail, so if walking is your thing you can start from your front door. Widemouth beach is within a reasonable drive for a day at the coast. My younger daughter loved having our very own duck pond, (which is fenced off for safety). This a great place to really get away from all the hustle and bustle and enjoy the peace and quiet, but is still within easy reach of the local attractions within a short drive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Groves Fishleigh.

Perfect holiday - home away from home!

My husband and I stayed, with our three dogs, at Groves Fishleigh for one week in August 2014. The cottage was spotless, extremely comfortable and it had everything we needed. It really felt like a home away from home! The hosts were very warm and helpful and we appreciate that they welcomed our 3 dogs. The location is ideal for exploring Devon & Cornwall. We look forward to returning again!

Stunning week in beautiful thatched cottage

Perfect cottage for a relaxing holiday in the beautiful Devon countryside. Cottage well equipped, lovely comfy beds and is Ideal for pet owners as up to 4 dogs are allowed at no extra cost, Wake up in the morning to the sounds of ducks in the adjacent fenced in duck pond. Perfectly located for exploring Devon, and not far from superb beaches on the north Cornwall coast. The owners are lovely and most welcoming and live in an adjacent detached thatched cottage. For walkers the cottage is on the Tarka Trail footpath, which slightly further north becomes a cycleway.

fabulous location, owners and cottage

Arrived on cold evening greeted by a roaring log fire, extremely clean cottage and fresh bedding that smelt lovely. The owners introduced themselves and what a lovely accommodating couple they are nothing was any bother. The cottage is well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Great location to explore Devonshire and Cornwall. There is duck pond that is well fenced off, which kept our gundogs from getting in for a swim. Tarka trail is on doorstep which was great to tire out our dogs. Such a quite, relaxing stay. The owners have done such a spectacular job on renovating such a fabulous thatch cottage. If you like walks or want to explore Devonshire and Cornwall or just want somewhere to recouarate from the stresses of life this is the place to stay. Hope to return very soon.

we recently stayed at this wonderful cottage with our small dog Teisha. on our arrival we were made to feel at home already by the lovely warm welcome by Zoe and her husband Malcolm. nothing was to much trouble for them . if we needed advice on how far somewhere was they were on hand to answer our queries. they have done an amazeing job with the cottage. its in a stunning location. and I loved feeding the ducks every morning and watching them in the duck pond in the garden. and gorgeous views at the back to. . the cottage is extreamly well equipped and warm and inviteing.there is ample room and has been very tastefuly decorated. and although the down stairs lounge is really big. we was not cold at all. and did not need the fire on at all..everywhere was immaculate and clean. Haherleigh isnt very big but the two pubs do lovely meals and dogs are allowed in them which is a bonus the museum at the quay is a great day out I had such fun dressing up in Victorian clothes. there is loads to do as the cottage is in a really good spot and not to far from places to see for a good day out. we had a superb holiday and cant thank Zoe and Macolm enough for making it possible we did not want to leave this gorgeous cottage and will be back. thanks you.
