Lovely small cottage with friendly, helpful owners nearby on site. Facilities in good condition. Despite awful weather we had a very relaxing time, visiting friends in Devon and exploring. Enclosed garden was essential for our dog and we even managed to enjoy the recliners at the summerhouse - albeit with full winter clothing on! A30 is very close Read more- good for getting about the county. Fantastic welcome pack, scones, local clotted cream, milk and biscuits - really tasty. Hide

We had a 2 week break here and really enjoyed it. The welcome pack was very tasty. Our 2 dogs loved the big garden. George and family were very welcoming. We had Sunday lunch at the Tom Cobbley Inn nearby, which according to my wife (and me) was the best roast she has had in a long time, but you must book

Lovely place to base ourself while we explored Dartmor and local attractions. The welcome scones and bread were delicious and the cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed. Our dog loved the garden and the stairs ( we don't have any at home) he settled quickly and slept well after a day out exploring. We would recommend. Thank you

What a lovely cottage, away from it all. We were being made very welcome by the owners and their dogs. The log fire was already burning. Scones, cream and jam and so many other treats were waiting for us. Attention to detail was second to none. Any questions we had were dealt with in no time. Only problem we seemed to have, was in the morning: wakiRead moreng up. Still dark with hardly a sound to be heard, we had lost every sense of time. A true holiday, only too short ! Hope to be back.
