Another wonderful stay

5 of 5
Just returned from another fantastic few days at Lapford Mill Cottage. Both Alex and Ann are very accommodating and although they live on site they allow you just to get on with your stay but always there if you need anything. Having the use of the field for dog walking is such a convenience and bonus. For us Lapford is very conveniently located enabling us to visit various friends in Devon. The cottage is very well equipped (although the kitchen could do with a grill pan!), the beds are comfy and the cottage is beautiful. Being within walking distance of the local pub is also handy!!!! I'm sure we will be back for a 3rd, 4th, 5th etc visit in the near future!
