Just a few of our Guestbook comments from happy visitors after their stay at Bowerland Cottage Holidays,
which also include our residential dog training holiday packages.

Thank you for a fabulous training weekend. Michelle was great and clearly understood the very different needs of Lacey, Marcus and Bonnie. We have learnt a lot and leave enthused to continue our training. The personal touches in the accommodation make this a great place to stay. We will be back!

Amazing week in the gorgeous cosy Old Dairy cottage. Especially loved the complemetary marmalade and lovely toiletries, the powerful shower, the toaster and the super comfy sofa in the conservatory! Had a great intro to agility with the knowledgeable Teresa and some good general tips to take home and practice.

We had one week of awesome training for our NBN Border cross and our lazy Retriever cross. The training was extremely effective and Michelle is a gorgeous trainer. The Old Dairy and the Annexe were lovely places to stay. We’re sorry that we have to leave. We will definitely work further on this new concept of training and hope to come back to Devon Dogs soon.

A very welcoming, lovely and quaint cottage. Agree with others in saying how dog friendly it is. Michelle’s calm and relaxed training style really helped us in understanding the needs of our individual dogs. Thank you Michelle, your help with our dogs will be life-changing for us all!

The Old Dairy is a perfect base to come with the dogs for training. A quiet haven in this beautiful weather. We have enjoyed a positive way forward for our spaniel and 2 rescues thanks to Michelle and the team. P.S. the marmalade was an exceptional bonus!

Many thanks to Carole, Alan and the team for a lovely holiday, and a special thank you to Michelle for the really great training sessions. The cottage is so cosy + the dogs especially loved the big dog bed – so much so that they managed to fit into it together!
