The accommodation is very clean, comprising of a well equipped kitchen, diner and lounge area that is very spacious. The bedroom is large with plenty of storage and the bed was so comfy. I am very fussy and most places I would not return to but I would here. Wembury has an excellent pub and the food scored a ten out of ten along with the friendly welcome, there is a small convenience store and three miles away is a small co-op food store situated at a petrol station that supplies everything you would need for a weeks self catering post code PL9 0DF There was no EE mobile phone signal but this turned out to be of benefit as we were "off line" and had no distractions, it was most enjoyable. Thank you to the friendly owners for a super four night holiday. Steve Elaine and Poppy
