    > Located in a tranquil, rural setting on the beautiful Bere Peninsula, the tiny hamlet of Hewton nestles within a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the rolling fields that run down to the Tamar Estuary, which forms the Devon/Cornwall border. The properties are superbly appointed and a real credit to the owners. From the extensive 5-acre gardens there are the most spectacular views down the valley and over the river where yachts lie moored. The owners’ formal garden is beautifully landscaped and is home to many unusual and exotic plants, a koi pond and large, mature trees. The outdoor heated swimming pool is surrounded by decking and there are sun loungers and garden furniture for guests to relax on and admire the view. There is a large field towards the bottom of the gardens and a mature wooded valley. These properties offer complete tranquil relaxation in a truly picturesque setting - ideal for couples. On the doorstep are splendid walks, cycle routes and horse riding with tennis, golf, fishing, sailing and canoeing available locally. The ancient stannery town of Tavistock, Dartmoor and several NT properties (including Cotehele and Buckland Abbey) are close by, and the beaches of South and North Devon within an hour’s drive. Shops 2 miles.

    Lovely compact cottage, super facilities, fantastic views over river Tamar, great paddock for excercising your four legged friend, but also own private garden, did not use the pool but can see the attraction for children during summer, nice decking for sitting outside in evening

    A comfortable cottage with outstanding views across the Tamar valley. A peaceful rural location well away from the hustle and bustle of town life and the summer tourist crowds.

    Nice people, spectaculair view, gardens and lovely pool. House very dated and poor/no maintenance, lot's of stuf broken and/or doesn't fit very well. Gaps in doors, Windows very dirty and window shades poor sight. "luxury bedroom,...... what a piece of ... ! Need proper cleaning, found lots of dust, hair and other dirt around the cottage. This was our forth booking with you, but we really regret this one ! We really don't understand the Reevoo ratings.

    My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Driftwood cottage, the view was second to none and the use of the swimming pool was a added bonus, it was so peaceful with only the sound of the wide variety of wildlife to disturb you, the owner was very helpful and had a very good knowledge of things to do in the surrounding area, I have no doubt we will be returning to Driftwood in the future

    This is a lovely location. Really nice property. Beautiful views. It needs attention to linens and towels. 2 small old towels are not sufficient for use. Bedding poor quality. TV’s, media, very old, needs replacing. These are details. Overall, a lovely property for a holiday.

    An outstanding accommodation location and hosts. The owners I’m sure are proud of what they have to offer. We loved the location,views from the accommodation. We took our boat down and left it a very local boatyard, We had to rely on the owner for local advice he even loaned me his navigation chart for the area. A big thank you from us both.
