It was so cosy and comfortable, a real home from home and had everything you could need for a weekend away. Couldn't recommend it enough. The cottage is in a great spot with pubs and cafes in walking distance and we had a lovely meal at the kents pub next door. Torquay harbour is in walking distance (about 20 minutes away) and it's in a great spot for exploring all of the pretty coastal towns. We will definitely be returning again in the future. Thanks Cathy and Ken for a great weekend.
