We were met by Gill the most charming and welcoming owner with a delicious cream tea laid out for us. The apartment is so comfortable and well equipped with the most amazing views, certainly the best we have stayed at. We were lucky to have good weather and walked the coastal paths most days as well as fitting in trips to Dartmouth, Salcombe and Hope Cove. This is somewhere we would be happy to return to, maybe one day with the Grandchildren - who knows? Thank you so much Gill.

We arrived just before 4pm expecting to be able to get in, but on reading the instructions again it says 6pm. I have to say I think this is too late. Also probably my fault for missing some info somewhere, but I always assumed from the photo that we would be in the annex, and was surprised to find that it was a first floor apartment in the main building. Apart from those two things, everything else was great. The apartment is well equipped, very spacious, and has fabulous views. The local pub is friendly and welcoming, with good food, and possibly the best chips anywhere. As a dog owner one of the best things was to find out how dog friendly the whole of the South Hams area is. The dog enjoyed lots of beautiful beaches, and endless fuss from people in pubs. The field adjacent to the property is perfect for an early morning walk, and the bench overlooking Bigbury perfect for a glass of wine in the evening. Al in all a very enjoyable holiday.
