The property is gorgeous, and perfect for what we wanted. There were four adults in our party, and plenty of space for us all. The area was wonderful. A very steep dirt track to get to the property, but don't be put off-it's worth the drive down! Thank you for the perfect place for our mini break.

It was lovely to arrive to complimentary scones, clotted cream, jam and wine, too! The location is easy to find - near enough to civilisation that a pub, Spar, petrol station and an honesty stand of local produce was easily within walking distance, but far enough away to feel we were nestled in the countryside. As we visited in January, we were lucky to have the site (almost) to ourselves, so the swimming pool etc was even more of a luxury. And there were no kids to turf us off the table football! The house has a plentiful supply of heaters and is very cosy. Lakeside overlooks a lawn and small woodland fishing lake. There's a boardwalk through the brook and marshy bits, but definitely take wellies or waterproofed walking boots if you want to explore that area. Some excellent bird-action for ornithologists too, although I'm not sure the fisherman would approve of the heron we spotted on day one! Disappointed we didn't see the horseshoe bats but we were out of season. If you go in the winter months, we suggest a torch as although the site has good lighting, there are inevitably some dark bits. This is a good location, within easy driving distance of Bigbury Bay, Slapton Sands, Hope Bay, Salcombe and Dartmoor. The agent was easily contactable and helpful when we needed a light fixed too. All in all a very nice Wintry stay. Thank you.
