Amazing location and huge cottage / so much space, enough for the whole family to enjoy. Garden is huge, dogs loved running around in it, and lovely to stroll in the morning and take in the view. Fires lit, telly on, wine in hand - magical! What a wonderful place to spend Christmas - already talking of returning!

We were a family of 5 adults and 2 children and a dog, lantern cross was perfect for us. We had loads of space, toilets and the fabulous 2 acre garden. I would highly recommend the cottage. Everything was a high standard and felt like home. I loved the dining room as we were able to all sit together to eat. It is a perfect cottage to base yourself Read morein exploring Devon. Looking forward to going back. Hide
