Customer reviews:

2-9th October 2017  Thank you for sharing Pidgeons Nest with us. Definitely 4 star and we lacked for nothing. This is not your average holiday home, so tastefully decorated, warm, clean and in such a beautiful setting. Definitely one to return to.  P.S. the best welcome pack we have ever had.  The Barr Family  - Surrey

21st August – 1st September 2017  A lovely relaxing holiday. The Pidgeon Nest was a lovely place to return to each day. The weather was kind to us and we enjoyed exploring the area. Beer was our favourite place – just sad we found it so late in our holiday.   Williams family

12th – 19th August  All three generations of the family enjoyed our stay at The Pidgeon Nest. It was clean and comfy and we liked the scones and cream – such a nice surprise when we arrived!!  Arthur (aged 2) very much like the garden and chatting to the horses/sheep/goose. Very friendly neighbours too!  The Jeffrey family.

5-12 August 2017  Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. Very child friendly as we have a manic 1 year old. Comfy beds and great pubs on your door step, a real home from home. Lots of things to do whether you fancy a beach day or town day. Our daughter who is 10 went horse riding and alpaca walking – both brilliant and local.  Thanks for the stay.  The Fords - Oxford

29th July – 5th August 2017  Lovely cottage, very clean and well equipped. Scones and jam etc is a lovely thought.

Had some great meals at the pubs here and in Beer and lovely walks with the dog.  Margaret, Michael, Glen and Donna, Derby.

22-29 July 2017  A lovely week in a lovely place. A great place to stay and explore nearby Devon. Comfy beds, although duvets were far too thick and warm for a Summer break. We were rather hot and we didn’t have the best weather otherwise a very well equipped house which was very clean. Thank you once again for a lovely holiday.  The George family – Wales.
