Everything you could ever need,is at this property.. the owner has a very particular and eclectic style of decor,quite unusual in holiday letting.But the overall feel,for me was of rural quietude,and totally suited our needs for this holiday.Loved the owls at dusk,and the cows in the morning,and the swans at the bottom of the lane..loved it

A lovely cottage extremely well appointed. The location is peaceful although the parking area is tight. Internet would be a real Bonus and mobile signal was very weak. Some local Information on walks and local Areas of interest would be useful.

Great location for exploring the South Hams area. Well equipped kitchen. One pleasing thing we would like to mention, was the TV. It makes a change to find a decent size one in a holiday cottage! So many seem to think something the size of a laptop screen is sufficient.

quirky but spacious cottage, with everything you need for a holiday on Devon. Lanes leading up to the cottage are narrow, so caution is needed and the turning circle on n off the driveway is tight but manageable. So peaceful, all you hear is the birds, no traffic its perfect. There is no WiFi and the signal isn't great, unless you hover at the end Read moreof the garden, but it shouldn't matter, you are on holiday and it is nice to be off the grid for a short while. Cottage local to lots of places to go. Hide

Lovely cottage and garden, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Great walking with the dog. Wake up to the sound of birds. Peaceful and quiet. Lovely view from back garden. Neighbours are close, mindful to be considerate guests.

A lovely, almost perfect setting. Good 'all round ' accommodation. Very friendly neighbours but you need to be a considerate tenant during your stay as you are in very close proximity to each other. Great for me as I found them really lovely.

The cottage was in a great location for exploring the coast of Devon, very quiet at night which was wonderful, falling asleep to the sound of the owls was quite a treat! Plenty of walking areas for the dogs but beware at night, it was very dark once you are away from the lights of the cottages.
