Literally, wow! A huge thank you to our hosts, who greeted us with a bottle of champagne, scones and cake! We were lucky enough to stay in Paul and Lynnie's stunning self contained apartment, within the grounds of their 5* B&B. The apartment is beautifully presented, in a wonderful location - the views of the surrounding countryside are amazing. Everything you might possibly need is provided, along with extra little luxuries, like toiletries, chocolates, dressing gowns and two fully furnished verandas. The bathroom alone was pure luxury with both a huge bath and shower - along with the fluffiest bath towels. Should you decide to explore the area, within a few miles you are once again on a main road and within easy reach of the beautiful harbour town of Dartmouth. We spent 3 days exploring much of the coast and loved every bit of it. We only wish we had longer, and will be returning for sure. What a very lovely way to spend our first wedding anniversary! Thank you for letting us share this pure heaven in Devon! Sandra and Johnny xx

An unforgettable place
We stayed at Treetops for a long weekend, wonderful place to stay.on arrival bottle of champagne for us and cream tea,
Bed very comfortable, wonderful bathroom.and the balcony and outside furniture very tasteful,but as it rained all weekend we sadly could not make use of.
Would recommend to family and friends.
Dartmouth well worth a visit, and Greenway house where Agatha Christie lived.

Perfect romantic getaway
Paul and Linney were wonderful hosts who made us feel very comfortable and well looked after. They were both very warm and provided help with directions, big smiles, and a bottle of champagne for us to celebrate our second wedding anniversary!
Treetops itself is absolutely gorgeous - open and clean and brand new, it had a lovely homely feel while also making you feel like you were in a very decadent hotel room! The bath is big and deep, the carpet new and plush, the mod cons are lovely and brand new, and the views are breathtaking. Beaches are a short drive away, as is Totnes but we were happy to spend time here!
We would definitely want to return and recommend to anyone looking to treat themselves. It was wonderfully romantic and my husband and I loved it.

Wow wee wow what a place. We have just returned from Treetops and are missing it already. It truly is as beautiful as it is in the pictures. Everything was perfect, from the initial correspondence when we booked all the way through to checking out this morning. The property is in a fab location in the South Hams. Central enough for Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Bigbury-on-Sea, Totnes and everything inbetween. Treetops is beautifully decorated. The bathroom is beyond stunning. The huge bath and shower are super luxurious. The kitchen is brand new, it has everything you’d need to self cater if you wished. The bedroom was beautiful and so comfortable! The bed is huge with tonnes of pillows! It actually encouraged us to lie in for once! My favourite part of the property is the veranda. Much of our long weekend was spent relaxing there on the beautiful rattan sofa bed chilling in the sunshine. We ate every meal out there too! It’s also more than big enough to do yoga on too! Lynne and Paul’s little extras like freshly made cream tea on arrival, fresh milk in the fridge and a great supply of tea and coffee made out stay so special. If you are looking for a little bit of luxury in a really special place I 100% recommended this property! We will be back for sure!!
