    "I stayed at Magpie’s Rest for a week late November. I found the location for Dartmoor absolutely spot on as you can drive to Princetown or Two Bridges within About ten minutes. For shops you can drive to Yelveton within a couple of minutes or to Tavistock within about 10 minutes. The property is self contained and above the owners garage and has stairs to the rear to access the property. The property has one living area and a separate bathroom. The main living area is modern and very well kept and I found it to be clean and fresh. The bathroom, again, was modern and very clean with a good shower that provided piping hot water within about 2 seconds. The property also appeared to have real central heating which worked at any time of the day or night. I only say this because I’ve stayed at several properties where they have had Economy 7 heating or immersion heating where it gets cold by about 6pm. Overall I found this property to be excellent value and adequate for a couple and would most certainly stay again."

    "Can't recommend highly enough. Friendly, warm and unobtrusive hosts. Accommodation was well equipped, is was lovely to have a welcoming cream tea on arrival. Perfectly clean and spotless. Wonderful couples retreat. Dartmoor national park literally on doorstep! Close to great places to visit such as Plymouth and NT properties. Can't wait to visit again!"

    "The Magpie's Rest was absolutely perfect for me to stay for a nice long weekend with my little dog. There is a little outside area that you can close off to make it safe so the dog can be in or out whilst the door is open in nice weather. Nick was extremely helpful and on hand to help in case of any questions.The cottage is finished to a very high standard. Really comfortable, very relaxing and beautifully clean. The main road is quite busy, but nothing much can be done about that of course. The cottage is located as far back from the road as the land allows and personally I didn't notice the traffic anymore after a few hours. Great walks and wild ponies grazed at to the side of the cottage, which was so lovely!I can certainly recommend highly!"

    "I looked to book a last minute break somewhere that was dog friendly. I came across Magpies Rest purely by chance...how lucky was I, the location is perfect with easy access to Plymouth and surrounding areas. The studio is perfect for one person or a couple and has everything that you need and is located next door to the owners (Nick and Claire) who could not have been nicer or more helpful. There are tons of places to walk and eat and some amazing beaches. I was made to feel very welcome and would 100% recommend. I know I will return again at some point in the future. ?"

    "Lovely time with amazing walks for dog"
    Mark ‐ 28 Feb 2019
    "A great place to stay to explore Dartmoor and this part of Devon. This small studio place has everything you need. The owners are very helpful. You can explore right from the backdoor with walks along a peaceful river bank, along an old railway or across the moors. A great place to be based. Reliable WIFI."

    "Everything I needed for a fabulous Christmas get away, including a Christmas tree! Lovely clean, modern, comfortable and cosy apartment. Great to be straight onto footpaths from the back gate and easy links to Tavistock and the rest of Dartmoor. Able to be independent but not completely isolated. Owners very accommodating and friendly. A great base to which I would have no hesitation in returning."

    "Wonderful walks right on your back door. Lovely country location. Modern and comfortable accommodation."
