The cottage, a converted cowshed, was tastefully renovated with all the modern facilities you would expect, and appliances. My friend and I had a most memorable stay.

This was a perfect cottage, in a perfect location. It had everything we needed, and the little extras that were provided were lovely. The dogs specially enjoyed the bag of treats. What a thoughtful touch. We also enjoyed the games room, and rediscovered how to play table tennis! It was lovely and we had a fantastic time. Would definitely go back.

A perfect cottage to take dogs too. Enclosed small garden, lovely fields that belong to the owner for a 1 km walk, great views . Comfy beds . Good showers. Parking outside the cottage.

The cottage was ideal, it was all on one level so it made it easy for my father, who has mobility issues, to get about. The wet room was so much better than a shower cubicle and it had a seat for him to sit as he showered. The accommodation was stunning and to a very high quality finish. The setting is idyllic, glorious views of the Devon countrysiRead morede in a peaceful location. The enclosed garden was great for the dog and having access to the fields was fabulous for her evening walks. Hide

A very friendly welcome upon arrival and some nice touches; milk in the fridge, treats for the dogs, tea, coffee, etc. Very well kept cottage with everything you need. Was lovely to have a little garden for when the dogs needed to pop out quickly. If not there were two fields adjacent to the cottage that are good for a short walk. We loved the locaRead moretion as we enjoyed the travel back to the A30 to connect to different locations around Cornwall that we visited. Highly recommend. Hide
