A little slice of Devon

5 of 5
Well located for East Devon. Just off A38 which makes coast and the moors very accessible. We even headed to Cornwall for a day. Although near the road, Milk Churn is very quiet. Property is very clean, modern and well kitted out. Loads of DVDs for when TV has repeats and you want to get away from depressing news programs. Having the heating on for us after a wet and windy day on Dartmoor was especially welcome. Strongly recommended.

Perfect Couples/ Honeymoon Getaway

5 of 5
We had a lovely warm welcome. The bed was very comfortable and the house was warm and cosy with the fire heating the whole place. The village was a short walk away and was very friendly. A number of lovely places to eat and pubs. Great views and wonderfully peaceful would love to go again!
