The property is well kept and maintained. Julie welcomes you with a wonderful cream tea, delish. I cannot fault any part of this property, the beds are extremely comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, there are books and games for those rainy days and information of the local area. Lovely, lovely place.

The cottage was spacious, comfortable, very clean, yet cosy and well stocked with everything you would need to entertain/or just holiday. The patio and BBQ were in a pretty garden area and of course the girls loved the indoor swimming pool. The games room was well used by them too. We had great days out horse riding on Dartmoor, a visit to Plymouth and fishing & crabbing in Brixham. It was our first time booking a cottage and this property certainly made our experience a positive one. The only comment would be for families with young children. There are lovely walks nearby but I wouldn't suggest walking from the cottage as there is no pavement and the roads are narrow. However that's a small comment for families only and we would definitely go back. We can't finish without commenting on the owners gorgeous dog Tilly who we were happy to have in the cottage as the girls loved her.
