Lovely cottage in Topsham

5 of 5
Coysh Cottage is in fact Cosy Cottage, a wonderful place to stay in Topsham which is a gorgeous Devon town. Aga, gas log burner, large rooms , sun trap patio and extremely quaint all add up to make an excellent holiday. Local pubs good as well!! Excellent area for walking, cycling and shopping. Downside, don't drive a large 4x4 as the driveway wasn't designed for cars!!! Overall, really excellent.
