Lovely peaceful setting

5 of 5
It was just what we needed a relaxing break and not to far from Bude which was lovely, cottage was spotless and very comfortable, really great to have a welcome pack of cream tea and fresh milk and even a bottle of wine thank you. We took our two dogs and they enjoyed their welcome pack and the doggy towels where a great help for wet paws. we would loved to have stayed longer.

Lovely cottage, very cosy and welcoming

5 of 5
Being on the moors was delightful. Helen & Robin, our hosts, couldn't have been more welcoming. The cottage has absolutely everything, including non-stick pans, which I haven't found in any other cottage we have stayed in so I take my own! The bed is very comfortable and the lounge is soooo cosy at night. The private garden that we can use is just that, private. It was lovely to sit out in the evening with a glass of wine. Sheep, goats and even a few Devon cows come round and can be seen through the kitchen window on a regular basis!! We will definitely be booking for next year.
