Cosy little cottage, very comfortable. Great for children. They loved being on a farm and seeing cows & sheep out of the window. Lovely host and very quiet

We recently visited The Retreat at Waytown and had a wonderful holiday. The accommodation was exactly what we were looking for. We could not fault it in terms of cleanliness or comfort. The location was ideal as it allowed us to tour both North and South coasts of Devon and Cornwall whilst also offering plenty of activities nearby. We also found thRead moree farm tour a real highlight especially for our young son and we cannot thank the owners enough for that. We would definitely recommend it. Hide
