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.

Hosts gave lots of useful info and even left some welcome goodies. Thoroughly recommend this place and we are already talking about when we can go back (we left yesterday!)
