Beautiful bathrooms and well equipped kitchen which suited all the family. Needed to be close to Plymouth and a38 which worked really well for us.

It didn't have wifi. But it did have a DVD player at the side of the TV. Overall it was value for money and I'd definitely recommend it & return to the property.
