A beautiful little cottage in a great location for touring this part of Devon. It has everything you need for a self catering break and is surprisingly spacious. The cottage garden is fully enclosed (even for little terriers) as is the excellent field reached through a gate in the gardenour two dogs thoroughly enjoyed it!
