Shire cottage is a lovely base for a family holiday in Devon. The setting is idyllic and made for a very relaxing holiday. The hot tub was very popular with our kids and the private garden is a great space. The cottage is a good size for 4 people and the WiFi is very good.

We were comfortable in the cottage and loved the location but for what we paid, would expect a bit more. Appreciate it is self catering but a lot of absolute basics were not included when we arrived ie a lighter, scissors, salt/pepper/oil, cleaning products, tea towels. The owners are happy to provide you with some things but it can be uncomfortablRead moree asking for more and more loo/kitchen roll. Id bring with you what you can. Hide
