We stayed at Three Pound Cottage in August 2018 for one week. I cannot speak highly enough of the quaint cottage which was in absolute pristine condition, the locality which is far enough from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas but near enough to access everything we needed for a family with young children. The village of Lustleigh is absolutely lovely with the locals being very welcoming. Of all the places we have been, the kids have said that this was number 1. Thank you. We'll be back.

Thank you so much for your lovely review! We are thrilled that you and the children really enjoyed your stay in Lustleigh - and we're especially pleased that the children rated us their No. 1 :-).
We very much look forward to welcoming you all back to Three Pound Cottage in the future.
All the very best

Perfect cottage

We had a lovely stay in Three Pound Cottage.We know Lustleigh very well & have been visiting for over 40 years, so to actually stay in the village in a cottage we have always admired was lovely.Three Pound Cottage was perfect. Very comfortable & had everything we needed. The welcome pack upon arrival was amazing especially after a long drive. We absolutely loved that we could get Netflix & the Wifi was excellent - much needed when there's very little signal in the village.The village of Lustleigh is very quaint. The pub just around the corner is lovely & does excellent food. There's a little village shop open 7 day's a week. There's lots to do nearby & lots of lovely walks to enjoy the beautiful scenery. The cottage has plenty of info on these.The owners Michaela & Brian have provided the perfect getaway cottage. They made sure our stay was as good as can be, even taking the time to call to make sure we had everything we needed. We really felt looked after.We will definitely like to return to Three Pound cottage in the future.Thank you for a wonderful holiday.Anne & family.

Lovely Cottage

We really enjoyed staying in Three Pound Cottage and Lustleigh. It is a lovely cottage, cosy and comfortable, and has been renovated to a high standard whilst retaining the character with many original features. The village is very pretty and peaceful, a great base for walking, exploring Darmoor and other excursions. Blessed with a good pub, village store and excellent tearoom it is a perfect location to unwind. Would definitely like to return.

Dear Alison, Clive and Matthew, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Three Pound Cottage and were able to enjoy the many things that Lustleigh has to offer.
We are very much look forward to welcoming you back again in the future,

Home from home

We had a lovely week in Three Pound Cottage and can only agree with all the other positive reviews. From the moment we walked through the front door to the day that we sadly set off on our journey home, we had a relaxing and enjoyable time. The owners appear to have thought of everything, making this a home-from-home experience. We visited Lustleigh to have a walking break and, from the village, there is huge variety of routes to follow. There's even a folder of suggested walks for you in the cottage. With a pub that serves good meals and a village shop that's amply stocked, it's possible to have a busy week without getting into your car. That's a wonderful prospect for those that live hectic lives! You won't even be bothered by calls on your mobile, unless you go and stand on the steps of the village church. You won't be completely out of touch as the cottage has wi-fi and there's a landline for emergencies. As I said, the owners seem to have thought of everything.

Dear Jan and Alan
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are delighted that you had a wonderful stay and that you found everything you needed in the cottage 🙂
You are absolutely right, there's so much of interest close by that you dont really need the car other than to get you to Lustleigh in the first place.
We do hope to welcome you back again soon
Thanks again

Perfect holiday

Had a fantastic holiday in Three Pound Cottage. We were there during the week of June when the temperature reached 30 degrees, but the cottage stayed wonderfully cool. The location is perfect, in the beautiful village of Lustleigh. From the cottage it is a very short walk to a great pub and a well supplied village shop. Also you can step out of the cottage and access some lovely walks without even getting into the car.The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped.On our last night we attended a brilliant performance of a Midsummer Night's Dream in the Orchard, put on by Kennford Productions. A perfect ending to a perfect holiday.We hope to return in the future.

Dear Ros and Gary
Thank you for such a wonderful review. We are thrilled you had a lovely stay and what a treat, watching Midsummer Night's Dream in the Orchard 🙂
We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future
All the very best

Fantastic cottage- beautifully renovated to be very comfortable but still retain all its charm. Everything worked. The pub was a few doors away, the local village shop across the green. The village is picture perfect rural England. After 5 days I wanted to buy the cottage and settle in Lustleigh indefinitely. Will have to satisfy myself with a return visit soon.....

Dear Cath and Dan
We are delighted you had such an enjoyable stay in Lustleigh. Brian and I felt exactly the same when we encountered this special place and love the fact that we can share it with our guests. In fact one of our guests loved it so much they did in fact return and have since made Lustleigh their permanent home. Never say never 🙂
We will look forward to welcoming you back to Three Pound Cottage in the not too distant future,
Best wishes

Christmas 2016

We couldn't have asked for any more the cottage was delightful set in a stunning village. It was a perfect setting for our family Christmas. The cottage had been renovated to a high standard keeping lots of original features with a lovely modern twist. The well equipped kitchen and large living area served us very well providing everything we needed to host our family Christmas. The only thing that would have helped would be a larger dinning table. We had a lovely relaxing week and loved the village. Everybody was very friendly and made us most welcome. We enjoyed the carols on Christmas Eve feeling part of the community. I would not hesitate to stay again.

Dear Bilinda and family - we are truly thrilled that you all had such a lovely Christmas at the cottage and that the locals made you very welcome 🙂 . It would be lovely to welcome you all back again some time in the future. All the very best

Perfect spot to relax

Beautifully renovated cottage in a lovely village. Couldn't be better really, the cottage is in a great location - tucked away in a quiet corner of the village but still only a few steps from the shop and very fine pub. Dartmoor is stunning and you have thought of everything, thank you so much.

Hello Liz - thank you so much for your lovely review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay in Lustleigh as well as the cottage.
We really hope to welcome you back again one day 🙂

Beautiful cottage

Our second stay in Lustleigh but this time at 3 Pound cottage. We were welcomed by Jean the housekeeper who left the cottage spotless.  The cottage has been renovated to a wonderful standard and is absolutely gorgeous. Lovely kitchen with everything you need, large living room and dinig area. Two large bedrooms and one small. Downstairs shower room and large family bathroom.Lustleigh itself is stunning with lots of walks and the Cleave pub which serves fantastic meals plus fish and chips from the van on Thursday night. We walked one of the routes in the book, 7.5 miles via Manaton but it was not easy as stated. Got lost and ended up doing 10 miles! But it was stunning scenerey. We also went to kingswear on the steam train from Paignton and then on the ferry to Dartmouth. A favourite with us and lunch at the Cherub. We drove to Dartington Crystal and then walked to Totnes for lunch. Walking up to Haytor and then onto Parke lovely national trust property with lots of walking routes and serving afternoon tea.We also went to Drago Castle but not for the faint hearted the roads are scary! Lots of close encounters with the Dartmoor ponies which was wonderful.Only small negative is no tv especially when we had one day of heavy rain. There is netfix but no tv signal.  No phone coverage in the village but we managed to get s signal on the top of the moors but no phone was actually a blessing.Would we go again 110% yes, loved it. Perfect setting, stunning cottage, great housekeeper such as blast, fantastic pub and great places to visit or just relax, plenty for everyone. Cant wait to go back.Big thank Michaela!Kirstie and James x

Hi Kirstie and James

Thank you for such a wonderful review - we're delighted you had an amazing stay and look forward to welcoming you back again.

Thank you also for bringing the TV reception to our attention. We understand the problem is due to the height that the trees have reached in the neighbouring woods and are currently trying to resolve this with the Woodland Trust. Hopefully the smart TVs with Netflix and all the Catch Up channels kept boredom at bay :-).

We loved hearing of your adventures and are glad you took the opportunity to explore further afield, sounds like you had a busy week!

We appreciate that mobile phone coverage is challenging whilst in the National Park. Hopefully the house phone helped you stay in touch - but like you, we too enjoy the peace and quiet.

Thanks again for your very kind review and look forward to welcoming you back soon...
