Guest Reviews

What a lovely place to come and stay to recharge our batteries, piece and quiet, lovely views, great place for walking and cycling, warm and toasty cottage to come back to in the evenings, great pub serving great food and drink nearby, a welcome cake on arrival, what more could we ask We also enjoyed reading Elaine's Blog on her website

Lovely spacious cottage looks of lovely views from the lounge windows plenty of comfortable seating and separate dining area which is great and good for playing board games. There is a small area of garden which is especially for guests, there is a bench and a picnic table which can be used, there is no bbq and ball games are not allowed due to the neighbours and the greenhouse, we spent many evenings in the garden with a glass of wine and nibbles just enjoying the peace and quiet. Elaine obviously enjoys gardening and seemed to spend hours each day looking after her lovely garden which has lots of lovely plants, very much a cottage garden feel to it The local pub the Peter Tavy Inn is just a short stroll away and is well worth a visit. There are lots of takeaway places in Tavistock, personally we enjoyed fish & chips and also a Chinese meal from the Birds Nest and an Indian meal from the Ganges. Thanks again for a great stay we will be back

Thank you so much, your friendly welcome and the cake, a great start to our holiday. We went to Tavistock a couple of times and each time we went the Paneer market offered something different to look at. Dartmoor National Park is a beautiful place to walk, it is also worth just taking a drive if you want to get back to nature and watch all the wild birds and animals, the sheep cattle and ponies are a joy to watch, the visitor centre at Princetown is also worth a visit as it the Dartmoor Prison Museum. There is a swimming pool in Tavistock for the children to go to together with a lovely park with ducks to feed, there is a river on one side and a canal on the other, both of which are lovely to walk by. There is also a place called the Wharf which has a cafe, live acts and sometimes doubles up as a cinema too. Great cafes and restaurants to visit in and around Tavistock also some good pubs offering good food Thanks again

Thank you for the lovely cake. We have enjoyed staying here and we have visited so many places including Tavistock, Morwellham Quay, Widecombe in the Moor, Lydford Gorge, Buckfast Abbey, Totnes, Cotehele. Also lots of walking on Dartmoor

We spent a wonderful time at Dartmoor National Park and at Moorview Cottage, the weather was mostly good, only a little rain, mainly overnight

A great find- thank you for the warm welcome and the terrific cottage, we had a brilliant week

Cosy, comfortable and well equipped cottage, a good base to explore Dartmoor and surround areas. Tavistock is well worth a visit, the choice and quality of many local eateries is good, Peter Tavy Inn, excellent food and service

After a break of 5 years we are back and had a wonderful time as usual, Elaine and Robert are such kind and truly nice people, they feel like good friends

What a great base to explore Devon and Cornwall, spoilt for choice. We had arrived early on the Saturday morning so visited Tavistock where we found the local farmers market before arriving at the cottage, lovely bread, meat and cheese. Plymouth, Bude, Clovelly, Lydford Gorge, Eden Project were just some of the places we visited, we even managed to fit in some evening walks over the moors. We have already booked to come again next year as we couldn't fit everything in. Thank you to Pebbles and Ginger Puss for being so entertaining

A fantastic week, thank you. This was our first visit to Devon and we feel we picked the perfect spot to enjoy it. Amazing walks right from the cottage We recommend the "Three Pub Crawl" Elephants Nest, the Mary Tavy Inn and then onto the Peter Tavy Inn- the food is amazing. Thank you to Robert and Elaine for the help to make this possible

Thanks for being great hosts and allowing us to experience Moorview. Thanks for the delicious cakes and muffins on arrival. We had a lovely time XX

Great week, thank you We hope to return

Excellent accommodation in beautiful surroundings, Dartmoor is a very special place-good local walks to White Tor and along the leat near to the river. Enjoyable lunch at the Peter Tavy pub and Elaine's cake!

Thank you for the lovely cottage in a lovely location. We had a great time

Very cosy and comfortable cottage. The cake was a very nice welcome. The Mary Tavy Inn does a two course pensioners dinner on a Thursday, very cheap and very good food. Elaine and Robert were very helpful when we had a problem with our car. We would recommend this place to our friends

Brilliant as usual, love this place had a lovely Christmas, made to feel really welcome, thank you Elaine and Robert. Bella our new dog loved it too, will definately be back. Home from Home

A wonderful peaceful retreat, with birdsong all around and the chocolate brownies provided on arrival- good ingredients

Beautiful, comfortable cottage, home from home, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you, thank you

A beautiful week driving around looking at old haunts and discovering new ones, we ran out of time, we will have to come back

Great weather, great accommodation what more could we ask for, the kids loved it too

I just wanted to drop you a short line to thank you for a wonderful week. I thoroughly enjoyed myself (in case you didn't notice!) You own a lovely property in a lovely peaceful spot with excellent riding close by. The cottage really did give the feeling of a "home from home" and I was most reluctant to return to London at the end of our stay.

I am sorry i didnt get time to write in your book so I thought I would write to you instead, we just wanted to say thank you so much for yet another lovely holiday staying at Moorview, we will certainly be back again and have started handing out the recommendations already

Beautiful conversion, spacious and spotless, wonderful countryside, we even had great weather. I think we will come in April next year as is such a lovely time with all the spring flowers. We have really enjoyed hearing the owl at night and also the cuckoo. We would certainly love to come back. Thank you both

We've all had a fantastic week, we've been out every day and evening. We found the cottage to be fully equipped, with wonderful surroundings, great location. Thanks so much. This is a lovely retreat

The best cottage we've stayed in, we’ve had a wonderful stay here, a beautiful location and well-equipped lovely cottage, hope to come again. Thank you for a lovely holiday in lovely setting.
