Generous and characterful space for two people, and a dog-friendly garden. Well located for the South Hams, though a mile plus to the nearest coast at the scenic Erme estuary. Generally comfortable, though equipment and information reduced to meet Covid constraints. Some decor a bit tired. Excellent recycling arrangements.

A lovely property that was clean, tidy and well equipped. Surprisingly spacious for a 1 bedroom property. Good location well away from the hustle and bustle and convenient for the Dolphin Pub which is a 10 - 15 minute walk away. The beach on the river Erme is also walkable. Otherwise all else is a drive away. Certainly good value for money.
