We had a lovely relaxing stay within picturesque surroundings. The property is decorated to a very high standard, it is spotlessly clean, comfortable and has all the amenities required to enhance a visit to the gateway of Dartmoor. Wendy and Mark are exemplary hosts who have an excellent knowledge of the area and they made us feel truly welcome throughout our stay.
