Cosy, well equipped cottage. Situated in a rural location but not too far from the south Devon coast and Exeter. Plenty to see and do in the area.

We had a pleasant stay, bed comfy and although on a fast country road was only busy during 'rush' hours. Cottage well equipped.

Reviewed by Janette, 1st March 2017

The cottage is superb, and the owner who lives next door was lovely, couldn't do enough for us. The location is gorgeous and handy for so many places. The New Inn pub 500 yards down the road serves great food and reasonably priced, and welcomes dogs.
