The location of the property is ideal for visiting all the main attractions. The owners extremely helpful without being intrusive. The views from the property over the adjoining fields excellent.

Clean house with a fantastic view over the countryside. The house is on a farm, great for animal lovers. Very peaceful and relaxing.

Great location and gorgeous views. Nice owners, on hand if needed. The hens were also amusing - be prepared for the cockerel waking you early! My son also enjoyed collecting the eggs. However the property itself, whilst being clean and functional, had a fridge which was far too small for a self-catering property - we eat a fair amount of fresh foodRead more and had to leave a lot out of the fridge, so it went off quickly. The bed was also small - I am 5'10 and my feet were hanging out if using a pillow! Hide

The location is great, the wifi is spotty at best, the beds are comfortable and except for the bathroom, the cottage appears clean.

My husband and I had fantastic week here in April. Lovely property with wonderful views across the fields. Really peaceful and a great place to getaway and relax. Brilliantly situated with main road routes across Devon close by but once at the cottage it feels like it is miles away from anywhere. Lovely pubs a short drive away and countryside to diRead moree for. 25 minutes from the coast. Owner Ann very helpful and welcoming felt like a home from home. We hope to return again. Hide
