Beautiful cosy cottage. Perfect for a home from home getaway. Wonderfully clean, and has everything you need. We spent days out walking, and nights in cooking and enjoying the log burner! Wonderful stay!

A beautiful cottage in a lovely location - rural but close to a pub and nearby shops in Torrington. We were made very welcome and had a great few days relaxing and visiting the north Devon coast.
