Easy drive to coast or inland to Dartmoor, Exeter and M5. Always spotless and comfy beds. Would definitely stay here again.

I was really only in it to sleep because I had lots of exploring to do in the area. That road in from the Exeter direction got very familiar! I had lots of light to work by in the evenings. I'm more used to showers than baths but managed. Wi-fi wasn't available to privately-owned flats but you could get free access at the holiday park across the road, no problem. Sue went out of her way to be helpful via email when I needed her. I was most appreciative. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is the internet inconvenience and the lack of a shower. Not much the owner can do about those things. Thank you, Sue!
