Amazing views across the Tamar valley - can even see impressive rail viaduct right from the kitchen window & a great place for walking and getting away from the business of urban life.

The cottage was within easy commuting distance from Ashburton and I passed Buckfast Abbey every day on my commute- how cool is that? The cottage was perfect for me. It was warm, cosy, well equipped and a peaceful haven after a hectic day's cooking. The village is picturesque and very well placed on the edge of the moors. I went walking in the evenings and at weekends and visited the welcoming pub on a few occasions. The owners Dave and Maggie were the perfect hosts. They were welcoming and always there if I needed them but respectful of my privacy. They even ate my food! Dylan the dog deserves special mention for doggy friendliness. Ashburton is a wonderful foodie town and I enjoyed visiting Totnes and Buckfastleigh when not cooking. I can highly recommend the cottage and I am tempted to come back- this time for a proper holiday!

Initially there was an issue with recreational seating as there wasn't enough for all of us. However a phone call to the owners rectified this problem within an hour even though they were out of the country. I greatly appreciated the speed that this was resolved. The property was an excellent base for exploring. The town of Looe was very charming, full of quaint shops and restaurants. I would certainly stay at the property again. Very reasonably priced, superbly equipped and superbly located.
