It was everything we expected and more. Warm, cosy, incredibly clean and tidy. Great central location, good little shop at local garage 200 metres away and good pub in short walking distance - uphill there so downhill back! Fab to walk our dogs in safety in grounds early morning and evening and Alex and Annie warm and friendly hosts. The Internet was absolutely fine on our phones but my old laptop wouldn't connect so just be aware. Alex did say he has plans to improve the signal to the cottage. Not that we wanted it but I think there was only one tv Chanel. We rarely go to the same location twice but we would certainly consider visiting Lapford Mill again if Alex and Annie will have us! A big thank you to them.

It had everything we needed; clean, comfy beds and a good shower. Thanks for leaving the essential cuppa making bits, much appreciated

It is beautifully presented to a high standard, with a well equipped kitchen. The views from the property are stunning. The owners made us very welcome providing a cot and stair gates which was much needed with our climbing 1 year old! Also when we had a query about the heating it was sorted immediately. We would definitely recommend!
