Perfect in every way. Really clean comfortable good size cottage with a super very safe garden & parking. Location was ideal for all of Devon.

Reviewed by Linda 14th September 2019

Good location being able to drive to all the towns and sea resorts. Nice garden at the cottage with summer house, very relaxing. Home made bread, biscuits, scones, eggs milk and butter!!! All in all a great week, but we did have lovely sunshine. Exeter Quay definitely worth a visit and Rock with lovely beach.

Reviewed by Nicki 26th August 2019

A beautiful cottage, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The garden was a real bonus. It was secure for our small dogs to run around and we loved sitting outside the little summer house in the sun.

Reviewed by Andy 22nd August 2019

Very clean, comfortable, well equipped, dog friendly cottage in an excellent location for Dartmoor National Park. Very friendly owners who couldnt be more helpful and their home baked treats on arrival were fantastic.
