Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cosy, unique, whimsical! We had the most amazing getaway at Devon Cottage! We were so close to town and yet it felt like we had the estate to ourselves because it was so peaceful and tranquil! The house was incredible and Margaret's organisation of facilities and information was second to none! Amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous weekend away Close to town, yet the wonderful gardens makes you feel like you're out of the way. The cottage was probably the nicest place I've ever stayed in the southern highlands. I can't fault it in any way, will definitely be returning.
