The cottage itself is extremely comfortable and we loved the ensuite bathrooms for every room. The kitchen was the icing on the cake with everything we needed to cook whatever we wanted. We loved walking around the farm, seeing the lambs and the horses, and going down to the river to relax. The perfect getaway.

Comfy seating nice fitted kitchen and two good sized bedrooms. Set in a small holiday village a 5 minute drive from sidmouth the site was very quiet this suited our needs perfectly. Other Devon resorts were near enough but you will need a car . With no wifi and sometimes no 3G or phone signal thought was needed when planning daily activities.
