There is a bathroom on the ground floor with separate shower, while a shower room is located on the first floor together with the bedrooms. Both the super-king-size bedroom and the twin bedroom benefit from fresh decor, high ceilings and pretty views of the garden below.

Outside, the beautifully stocked and cared-for garden is a tranquil and relaxing space in which to enjoy summer BBQs or al fresco drinks at the garden furniture. While adults make the most of the peace and quiet, children can head to the shared play area where there is a swing, slide and sand pit.

Comfortable cottage with lovely owners (and their gorgeous dog) handily located between the South Hams coast and Dartmoor. Had a fabulous week in the sunshine! Thank you for making us so welcome. Mike, Annie and Olivia (4 legged friend)

Comfortable and well equipped. The only small thing was the 2 single duvets on the double bed which kept falling off in the night !! Understand this for practical reasons

Cottage was lovely with everything we needed in it. Very comfortable and warm, great location for visiting both beaches and Dartmoor. Fantastic pubs nearby, none within walking distance but that wasnt a problem for us. Owners were both friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend a week here

Spotlessly clean. Lovely property, big bedrooms. Two bathrooms made all the difference to us especially with 2 teenager(ish) girls. Good location for beach or Dartmoor. Brilliant for the dogs as the gardens were huge and they could be off lead. Hosts were very kind, checked several times if we needed anything as items had to be removed from propertRead morey due to covid 19 restrictions. Hide

Hosts were friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. The cottage was perfect for the 4 of us and 2 dogs. The views form the bedroom windows were outstanding. I booked last minute and this was the only property available for the dates I wanted that would take 2 dogs. I couldnt have picked a better place even if Id spent hours perusing many, many choiceRead mores! Thanks so much David and Carol!! Hide
