This is a beautifully converted cottage where everything works and is maintained to a high standard. From the hot tub to the wood burner, sharp knives and cooking utensils to comfortable sofas and rain shower, it's an ideal place for a small family or perhaps two couples and is very well located for Dartmoor and South Devon tourism.

The Retreat is lovely. The garden was fully secure for the dogs, so no need to worry about letting them out. The hot tub is great and lovely to use even on rainy days. Location is close by to lots of walks and only 30 minutes drive to lovely dog friendly beaches.

Cottage was really well equipped and we found everything we needed, hair dryer, kitchen equipment, high chair etc. The decor was warm and homely. The location was great for exploring South Devon. Only slight problem was the lounge area only had sofa seating for 3/4 people and we had 5 adults staying, we are all friends so though so just made thingsRead more more snug. There was plenty of room around the dining room table for everyone though. Hide
