The garden was beautiful and all the children enjoyed running around, my husband enjoyed mowing the lawn with the children helping him. the wheelbarrow was a hit too. Tavistock is a pretty town with lots of nice little shops and a market. There is plenty to do in a week, many gorgeous walks and national Trust visits. Good idea about not having a telly in the cottage, first we were a bit worried but actually it was a great time not having TV and just chatting and reading books or playing games. We'll definately return again.
