Stunning location and building. Everything you need for a really comfortable stay. The pigsty was superbly presented and clean. We loved our stay and will be back in the future. Make sure you grab a few bags of logs from the local petrol station to get the hot tub going (15 worth is enough)

Great place to stay and to explore Devon. Well laid out accommodation and very comfortable.
