Remote location which could suit some but not all. Steep stairs to the bedroom. Nice powerful shower and good outdoor parking. Nice roomy cottage with a good garden area. Very dog friendly.

Very well placed for sightseeing by car and comfortable, homely barn conversion. The steps to and from the mezzanine bedroom area and to/from the garden may be a problem for some.

Lovely location but maybe a bit remote if dining out. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful

Lovely, cosy cottage with beautiful views in a tranquil location. Owners are very welcoming and checking that we always had enough logs for the fire. Our dogs enjoyed the holiday and particularly the enclosed garden and exploring the nearby forest. Beautiful part of the country.

Lovely barn conversion in a lovely rural location in the South Devon countryside. Great for dogs given the woodland walks on the cottage doorstep. Cottage is open plan and is well equipped and very clean. The wood stove is excellent and unlike some other cottages theres loads of wood available. Owners live in house across the courtyard and are veryRead more friendly. All in all a great place and highly recommended. Hide

Our rating for location is specific to us, it was too far out in the middle of no where, but we appreciate others would absolutely love this. The downstairs is very spacious, as is the bathroom.

This is a lovely converted barn in a beautiful and peaceful location. We loved the open-plan design and particularly enjoyed the decking with views over the valley - a great place to relax, read and drink a cuppa!
