The bed was very comfortable and the house was warm and cosy with the fire heating the whole place. The village was a short walk away and was very friendly. A number of lovely places to eat and pubs. Great views and wonderfully peaceful would love to go again!

It made an ideal base for us and we were very comfortable. Only negative is if you are light sensitive for sleeping take an eye mask as the double bed room has a street light close by and the curtains are pale- so we also woke up early. Apart from being a great place to stay the fact it has a parking place is really useful as Exeter is not easy for parking. The owner is also really friendly and helpful. I would recommend this property but don't go when we want to be there as we would like to back! :)
