Beautiful cottage and garden, very peaceful. We and the dogs had a lovely time. Nearest Village for pubs and shops and take aways ten or fifteen minutes away in Torrington. Thank you Sue for being on hand if needed.

The property is set in beautiful secure grounds, the garden being a paradise for dogs. The property is huge and comfortable and was more than ample for the eight of us and our three dogs. It is central for the coast and local attractions. The Globe in Beaford is a lovely pub serving delicious meals

Amazing garden and view, great size house and comfortable, had a lovely relaxing 2 weeks. Nothing bad to say really except it is right next to a road, it's not overly busy but if you're not used to noise at night you may need earplugs. Can't be helped where the house is though and it wouldn't stop me going again.

Excellent property, well equipped, spotlessly clean and bucket loads of character. Thoroughly enjoyed our week, despite the efforts of the weather.

Lovely very clean house with everything you need. The garden is huge and the dogs absolutely loved it! And a beautiful view . Would definitely recommend the globe pub for a good meal and the old pub atmosphere. We would definitely stay at lantern cross again.

The main reason we chose this cottage was the garden; 2 secure acres of dog heaven and we wern't disappointed. As far as holiday cottages go, you would be hard pressed to find better. Both for amenities, comfort, quality and of course the garden. The whole cottage is simply immaculate, fully loaded and extremely well laid out. Clearly a great deal Read moreof thought, time and money has gone into what they offer. Nothing has been overlooked and we cannot recommend it highly enough. Hide
