The house had most things that you could require for a weeks stay with the exception of wine glasses there was no shortage of large glasses but there was only 2 wine glasses . No problem as we just went and brought some from the local supermarket . The only major problem that we had was the steps from the car parking to the house as these are wooden and the steps and handrail when wet and icy were extremely slippy. Great to have the passes for golf and leisure included. And local pub the Cardinals Hatt was very handy for a drink or food. Simon was extremely helpful and professional and we will return again.

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.

It had a modern interior and was cosy and warm for our autumn break. We had a very relaxing week, visiting some interesting places and taking some beautiful walks. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The village pub served good food, which was a welcome bonus.
