We cooked from fresh (mostly local produce) most nights with no problem - facilities were great. The view from the property is lovely and everything as advertised. We hope to return sometime maybe with family as there was plenty of room. However, the peace and quiet was perfect for just the two of us. Paul was very helpful and available close by - we had no cause to call on him during our stay as everything was perfect. We chose this property because we wanted somewhere that would be lovely to stay inside if the weather was poor. The weather was mostly fine though so we went for many walks locally and on the nearby moors. We explored the local coast, towns and villages which are beautiful - a great base for exploring the area.

The owners have made it very cosy with a log fire, beautiful kitchen area comfy furnishings. Great pub along the way and a few minutes walk to the creek and the Ferry Boat Inn at Dittisham. Easy drive into Torbay or Dartmouth. We shall go again.
