We've had a terrific time at the Lower Manor Cottage. It's quite isolated, in the middle of Devon's beautiful countryside. Great location to unwind, go for dog walks and relax with family and friends. Marika and Trevor were fantastic hosts and truly went the extra mile to make our stay memorable and comfortable. Thank you!
