Beautifully furnished throughout with all the mod-cons. Excellently positioned to explore all the south-hams area has to offer. Can link to public footpaths easily for local walks and bantham beach was only a short stroll away. Will definitely be returning to enjoy the property in sunnier climates!

Friendly and welcoming owners, decent wood burner, big bath and comfy bed, everything we needed. Pub in the village was very friendly.
