Thank you Caroline and Nick for a wonderful week here at Owls Roost. Your warm, friendly, helpful welcome, coupled with this beautiful cottage to stay in, made a very special time for us, despite the weather. With the comfort of our surroundings and a log fire, we could forget the rain outside. All this plus Caroline's treatments, massage and reflexology - what more could we ask. Thank you we will definately be back. M & M Guildford, Surrey - Nov 2010
Thank you Caroline and Nick for a wonderful holiday. We couldn't have been happier unless we could have stayed longer and the sun had shone a little more often. We have been staying on Datmoor for over 25 years and Owls Roost is by far the best place we have ever stayed. You have created a home for couples who like a quality quiet retreat. Thank you Caroline for the treatments, we were amazed and heartened by the results. We must tear ourselves away to return home and look forward to seeing you again before too long - if you have any vacancies !! M & C Kent - Sept 2010
