spacious, well equipped, clean and tidy, everything works, off road parking, good public transport.

5 of 5
We had good weather and used the local no2 'bus to Dawlish town gardens and river. Another day we walked to the beach via footpath and bridge over railway and then on to Dawlish and returned on 'bus. Another day we went by 'bus to Starcross then ferry to Exmouth returning by train, and lots of other things. Good facilities in kitchen so we always cooked our evening meal, lots of very hot water for the washing up. Kitchen tap a little stiff but quite manageable. Best short break we have had for a long time.

Fabulous holiday getaway.

5 of 5
The Cowshed more than lived up to our expectations. Light and airy, the conversion has been beautifully completed to a very high spec. The property is perfectly situated to explore Dartmoor and the wonderful Devon coast. There are shops, restaurants and pubs at nearby Mortonhampstead. We had a wonderful week here and were well looked after by owners Wendy and Mark, without hesitation we would happily recommend The Cowshed for a superb holiday in the lovely Devon countryside.
