The cottage was lovely and well equipped and the village is so quiet. The owners were great as were the resident dogs especially Frankie. Everything was well thought out with good information on things to do and places to eat overall a very pleasant stay

Top notch. Superb little getaway which is more than dog friendly due to the owners JP and Fiona and the extended Labrador family - the girls. Our one year old black lab loved playing in the paddock with the youngest, Frankie, thanks JP. Comfortable little cottage with all we needed. Slept like logs after all the explor Secluded yet still near enougRead moreh to the main road to make it a great base for exploring Cornwall and Devon. Two excellent pubs within a few minutes walk, both dog friendly. Hide

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.
