  • This is a lovely house, beautifully maintained and presented

    This is a lovely house, beautifully maintained and presented. It's in a very quiet location, easy walking distance to some shops, a pub and some takeaways, but a longish walk or short drive to the restaurants in the centre of New Plymouth.

  • We really enjoyed staying in this lovely home with all its comforts...

    We really enjoyed staying in this lovely home with all its comforts and ambiance. Although circumstances didn't allow us to meet our hosts we were made to feel very welcome and appreciated the small touches of fresh flowers as well as our hearty breakfast. Also much appreciated was the warmth of the wonderful fire on a rather chilly weekend for November. Proximity to all the interesting things to see and do in and around New Plymouth was an added bonus. Would certainly stay again!

    We were sorry that due to circumstances we couldn't be at Distinguished on Dartmoor to meet you, as we like to do. However, even though we didn't meet you, we felt a warmth from our communication with you which was just lovely. We treasure our place and we love that you enjoyed the property and that the simple wee touches were special to you. Thank you for the care you took to leave it so sparkly and please know, you will always be welcome to stay.
