It is a great combination of modern comfort and cosy countryside charm. Of course we loved the logs and the view from the balcony. The owners, Wendy and Mark , were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed visiting local villages, NT properties and exploring stunning Dartmoor on foot. There were lots of places to eat; delicious breakfast, lunch, cream teas and dinners, all within a short drive.

Beautiful scenery and peaceful location. Owners very friendly and welcoming. Nice and clean accommodation with everything we required including a cream tea and bottle of wine on arrival! Dog friendly too. Nothing was too much trouble. Thoroughly recommended. Shirley and David
