I would recommend this cottage to anyone, there were lots of added extras that were left for us thank you Denise your home is amazing hopefully we will return for another visit.

The cottage was spotless and was well stocked with plates cups etc. The starter pack of bread,cereal, milk etc was a nice touch. We will definitely return. Lots to do in the local vicinity. Especially liked Clovelly Village; great for working off a few calories! Kids thought The Milky Way amusement park was fantastic. 80% of the activities were in doors which was perfect for the colder weather. Pubs are no shortage. We ate at The Bell a few times; food was nice. The Rising Sun at Umberleigh was also good and the owners very welcoming. Also recommend the Chichester Arms at Bishops Tawton. Steaks were very good there.
