The accommodation was excellent - everything we needed - just like being at home. We have two boys aged 19 and 15 and the bunk beds were a good fit for them. It is dog friendly which is a real bonus. Lovely gesture to leave milk in fridge together with tea and coffee and also a welcome card. We met some of the bungalow owners who were very friendly and helpful especially when we needed advice on the best route to take to get to Teignmouth. Great walks to be had around the area. Would love to stay at The Palms again.
