Loved our little break at Tadpole. Beautiful area with easy access to Tavistock. Quiet, cosy and just right to get away from it all. Planning another visit. Would be great if there was a mirror other than in the bathroom. Thanks Ruth for a lovely stay!

Gorgeous little cottage. Perfect if you want to get away from the world or having time out with a friend or family. Stunning walks and not too far to drive to a good pub or shops. My son was very sad to leave our lovely few days in your cottage. Thanks for having us.

Tadpole Cottage is just as Ruth describes it, small, immaculate, beautiful and well appointed. We enjoyed the silence and the great walks! We would recommend it heartily.

We had a great stay at Ruth's place. She was very easy to communicate with and provided all the indications needed for a perfect stay ! The house is very cosy, and well-decorated. The area is very calm, perfect to a quiet retreat and provides some nice walks few miles away. We would suggest that the stay is more suitable for 3 people as the second double room is quite small for two adults.

We loved our time at Tadpole and want to spend more time there. We really appreciated the attention to detail including tasteful decorations, Nespresso machine and wonderful linens and towels. Located in a small, isolated village Tadpole is a wonderful getaway from urban life offering peace, clean air and water, walks and history. If you are wondering if Tadpole is right for you, wonder no more and book immediately.

Gorgeous little cottage fully equipped with everything you'd need for relaxing after a long ramble on the Moors including a cozy combustion fire. Excellently located for hikes to Lidford Gorge, Brentor and Mary and Peter Tavy. We loved our stay.

Hello. I'm Ruth and I live in London with my two daughters. I have a career as a consultant working in the creative advertising and design industry - and I travel a lot - both for business and pleasure.

I have a lovely bolt hole in Devon (where I come from originally) available on Air BnB, which is our family treasure; much adored by us.
