We love it here. Our 2nd visit and would love to come again. Great central location we visited Cornwall and the east and west coast of Devon. Such a unique place. Love stargazing at night, was more difficult this time due to the clouds! Amazing views and so so quiet. The most relaxing holidays we have ever had!

Wow, what a perfect rental. A beautiful, private spot, just the place to get away from it all. Amanda, the owner, left some butter, bread,milk and juice in the fridge, so we were good to go when we got there.

This place is a must if you like quirky, want peace, quiet, stunning views and interesting walks. The Tower upstairs was great for sleep out on on hot nights and the garden studio ace for reading or watching wildlife. I loved all the little details provided in the garden studio from cushions, little lights and sofa - very homely. The Tower is a briRead morelliant stay in a great place off the beaten track. Hide

Absolutely gorgeous stay, we weren't very lucky with the weather so couldn't make the most of the roof but was very cosy and quiet inside! It is a small space but laid out extremely well to make the most of what you have so it doesn't feel cramped.

An exceptional property and location. The views from the room terrace are spectacular. Despite the small size the property is comfortable and very well equipped. The owner, Amanda, is extremely helpful and considerate. We have already recommended the place to friends.

A real privilege to stay in this small yet perfectly formed tower. Returning here after a day out was as much of a treat as visiting the beautiful locations we did. I am a big bloke and felt comfortable in the tower which was something I was worried about. The owners left us to our own devices but were at hand if needed.
