We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Sojourn:

It's the perfect romantic retreat for a complete escape!

Thank you Jane and Alistair - we had an unforgettable romantic weekend at Sojourn. The sun shined throughout our visit and we spent so much time in your beautiful gardens, especially the bower house, where we enjoyed our evening meals accompanied by the soothing sound of the water feature. Sojourn was such a heavenly setting to return to after exploring Dartmoor's autumnal landscapes, as every inch of the cottage was pure luxury. You have thought of everything to make this house a home - from lavender sleep spray and eye masks, to an incredible welcome hamper filled with local treats. Everything in this home was of a high standard, and the housekeeping was immaculate throughout. We can't wait to visit this special place again. We made so many memories to treasure.

I had the most incredible time at Sojourn! A perfect place to comfortably relax and unwind after venturing out into the surrounding Dartmoor wilderness! The outdoor space was lovely and having the impressive roll top bath was a welcome addition after a day of adventures :)

Sojourn is a superb property with lots of little luxuries to make your stay extra special. We especially loved the gorgeous garden and making pizza in the bower house.

This is the most idyllic spot for a romantic get away with every luxury provided to sit back and be spoiled. Thank you!!

A truly luxury hideaway with a magical garden and gorgeous sitting areas
