Really lovely cottage but wouldn't recommend if you want to explore Cornwall rather than Devon. We spent a lot of money on petrol! Very nice cottage but could really do with a good dust! Not as clean as I would have liked. full of cobwebs, dusty, dirty utensils from previous guests.

Nice enough cottage with everything you could need. Cleanliness left a bit to be desired and access is a bit limited Location could be better as it wasn't really that close to anything

Great little cottage and it was fun getting list the first few days. The dog exercise area was great and the owner introduced his dog to ours so it was pleasant to exercise our greyhound. The situation was great for accessing the rest of Cornwall.. The cottage was well equipped with owner providing washing up liquid etc. Very handy.

A well resourced, very attractive cottage for two. Perfectly proportioned, with a lovely owner attached. We had a smashing few days away from the mad city life of Redruth, Cornwall. A great base to visit the Tamar Valley and the cracking ancient market town of Tavistock. I cannot recommend enough the excellent Springer Spaniel and Cornish Arms for Read morefood. Hide
