Absolutely stunning cottage, cannot be recomended enough.

5 of 5
This is the perfect get away from it all cottage. Upon first walking in, it certainly had the wow factor, a beautifully converted and updated cottage that would not look out of place in Home and Gardens, it was spotlessly clean. Even better was the bunch of roses and the scones, jam and clotted cream left to welcome us. The cottage is tucked away down a long and narrow lane but that means that it is all the more isolated with stunning views and walks along the costal path. There is a small beach within 10 minutes walk, it is exposed when the tide goes out, was perfect for snorkelling. An even better beach was 30 minutes walk away. Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers are so much nicer than Salcombe. They were right that September was the sunset month, we saw four fantastic sunsets looking over the water to the west, worth going just to see that. Would we go back, absolutely, this was the best Owners Direct cottage that we have stayed in, it made it a very memorable family holiday. Thank you.

The property was excellent, everything was there for you. Lovely setting facing on to a large field, which the dogs loved.
