Great cottage in a completely private location; tucked away in a beautiful garden up a steep lane. There was plenty of parking for three cars at the cottage and whilst there are some amenities in walking distance you will need transport to explore the wider area. Plenty of things to see and do for all ages within a short driving distance. The cottaRead morege itself was very well equipped, the towels and linens were clean and fresh. Happy to recommend. Hide

Cottage was absolutely beautiful and was very well equipped with everything you need for a perfect holiday. Location was perfect we all really enjoyed seeing all the different birds that came to visit daily and listening to the owl at night. The children really enjoyed playing in the garden. We will definitely be booking a return visit.

We loved every minute of our holiday. The house and location was great and every thought had been put into the equipment. We will definitely be back again.

A great stay & very comfortable home at a very nice/quite location. A nice touch to have a hammock & table-tennis table outside. Some good country walks from the house. It was very kind of the owners to provide scones & clotted cream for our arrival :-).

This lovely cottage is very comfortable and well equipped, with a beautiful garden that attracts an abundance of wildlife. We found it a little too remote, but it's an idyllic spot if you just need to relax and unwind. For the keen walker, there are some lovely walks just minutes from the front door!

This cottage was lovely very tasteful and pretty garden. We unfortunately could not stay after 3 days as our dog was ill and needed to come home for an operation.

The cottage was ideal for walks along the SW Coast Path, and in a lovely quiet location. Very well equipped, comfortable and warm during our New Years stay. The whole family including the dog enjoyed the holiday!
