Beehive Cottage was well equipped in general, very clean and well-prepared for us. There are two cattle grids into the residential area of the overall farm. The inner one of these needs attention as it seems there is some subsidence right by it causing quite a bump for the car.

Very well equipped house. Lovely layout, nice private, enclosed garden. Cosy, relaxing. Be aware that dogs are roaming the farm if you have reactive dogs. Would definitely stay here again. Summerleaze beach was about 20 mins away. Beautiful beach, near town/shops/supermarkets.

Charming cottage with everything you need, lovely and quiet and waking up to bird song was just lovely, the farm dogs were funny too, as you open the kitchen blinds in the mornings, sometimes they are sitting outside looking in at you expecting treats. So obviously we chucked few for them

Lovely, quiet location. Easy access for great beaches and the lovely Tamar Lakes. Secure garden was ideal for the dogs. Cottage was spacious, clean, comfortable, and well equipped, but could do with a bit of a refresh to get top marks, and be very careful over the cattle grids.
