A cosy cottage with wonderful wildlife all around.

5 of 5
We received a warm welcome from Jon and the cream tea provided on arrival was very welcome after a long drive. Every morning we enjoyed eating breakfast over looking the garden watching the squirrels chasing around and the many birds that visited the bird feeder. We were lucky enough to see a woodpecker, a nuthatch, a bullfinch and a huge variety of more common garden visitors. Several nights we ate at the Pint and Post , only five minutes down the road, which provided reasonable priced pub meals and a warm welcome. The coast was well worth a visit as the scenery was stunning. We enjoyed trips to Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Issac. All in all a very relaxing holiday in very peaceful location.

Very warm and friendly welcome from the owners! Despite the weather we had an enjoyable and relaxing stay. Lovely walk up to Brentor church from the cottage. Fabulous views of the night sky, overall perfect base for exploring this part of Devon. ,
