Amazing!

5 of 5
Barbara was lovely! We where met at the cabin and showed where everything was. The kitchen was kitted out with everything you need! One of the most comfortable beds i have ever slept in. Pristine white bedding. She supplied 4 large towels and spare blankets. The cabin was extremely clean and very homely ! I loved my stay! So much wildlife, around a bird table you can watch from the sofa or decking! I cant fault it at all! Such a lovely little holiday! In a very peaceful location, but not to far from a few towns with shops! And only around 17 miles to Plymouth and Torquay! Fantastic value for money, they even provided tea, coffee, sugar, milk and a pack of bickies for us! Will definitely be coming back in the summer! Thank you Barbara! ❤
