Cosy cottage in a perfect location

4 of 5
My husband and I spent a week here during February half term. The cottage is right in the heart of the village, a stone's throw from the beach and close to a range of delightful pubs serving delicious food. The cottage is only a short walk from the stunning south west coast path and near to many beautiful beaches and interesting villages and towns. It is very well- equipped, warm and clean. The scones, jam and Cornish clotted cream provided by the owner on arrival were very welcome. We had a lovely stay and would definitely go back.

Great stay in south Devon.

5 of 5
This is a high quality property, in pristine condition throughout and well located very close to the sea. The owners are in the next property if you need them, but otherwise leave you undisturbed to get on and enjoy your stay (exactly as we like it). This is a great place to stay and we intend coming back, but with our young grandchildren next time as there is so much for them to enjoy within easy reach.
