Very clean, comfortable cottage in a very peaceful, almost rural location but within about 20 minutes walking distance of the main town. Lovely secure garden for children or a dog. Very comfortable bed in main bedroom. Highly recommended.

We loved Devon and the cottage was cosy and very warm. The garden is gorgeous and we loved feeding the birds each day. Gorgeous main bedroom and a comfortable living and dining room. Loved the quiet location very much and this break was just what we needed after a hectic house move.

Lovely cottage with a beautiful garden and in a brilliant location Have already booked for next year

Reviewed by Howard, 9th September 2017

Great little bungalow in its own lovely setting, a little out of the way but again great if you wish to be out of the hussel and bussel. Highly recommendable for that quite restful holiday. Should remember it's situated at the top of a hill so you have to be good and keen walkers unless you do everything by car.

Reviewed by Helen, 22nd July 2017

The garden of the cottage is fabulous, very large, fully enclosed and not overlooked. This along with the quiet location creates a relaxing private space. The inside is scrupulously clean and a home from home. Some decor needs updating but I have the impression this is underway in a rolling process. Highly recommended

If you are looking for a clean, quiet cottage then this is the place. It is very private and well appointed. It's clean, tidy and everything works. We fell in love with the place.
