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..

The triple bedroom for the boys was spacious and comfortable (with some places, the second bedroom can be a bit of squeeze but not here). We appreciated having 2 bathrooms and both were high spec. The hosts are lovely and have thought of everything including bird food for the bird feeder outside our window so we saw many pretty birds in our garden. The boys couldn't believe their luck when they saw all the scooters and bikes to use and the games room was terrific for both parents and kids. The lake was conveniently close-by and lovely. We took a magical walk through the forest following the gushing river all the way to the pub. Have already recommended to friends.

Beautiful little cottage done out in a very high spec everything had a touch of class about it. On arrival waiting for us a mass of homemade mince pies, a box of eggs from their farm (Best ever tasted) a bottle of Presecco and a box of chocolates, a lovely touch that instantly made us feel welcome. The view from the back of the cottage was stunning and at night not one bit of ambient light, so many stars. To top this off you are only a 6 - rmin walk away from a great pub "Ruggleston inn" great beer and excellent homemade food and very friendly locals. We enjoyed some long walks with great scenery highly recommend this for a getaway weekend or week. Almost forgot a great wood burning fire that kept the place snug and warm, just go!!!!
