It is not often you find such luxurious, dog-friendly accommodation. It is the perfect place to get away from it all. The property is beautifully presented and Adam provided a welcome hamper which was a nice touch. We also loved all the recommended walking routes which Adam provided and used them to explore the immediate area and Dartmouth. The whole place was very comfortable and relaxing. We went in Autumn when the colours in the surrounding area were spectacular..
