Fantastic location and so peaceful, just the sound of the birds. Great for using the train with the many connections and so much to do in the area. Our host was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely to have a covered seating area for meals outside. All n all brilliant and we will be back.

Beautifully presented cottage in a lovely quiet location. The property is well equipped and comfortable and the owner very pleasant and helpful. Well located for the Moors and Plymouth, if you're touring by car would recommend heading to Tavistock first before venturing on unless you like really really tiny roads.
