The loft is decorated and equipped to an excellent standard, with absolutely everything you need! The bed is super comfy, the bathroom and shower just perfect! The kitchen is big and well equipped, very modern, it’s lovely. The lounge upstairs is very comfortable and has lovely countryside views. Due to the time of year, the area was very quiet. We had a lovely walk over to Burgh Island, visited Salcombe, Dartmouth and Plymouth, it is in a picturesque area, we loved it. Louise and Chris have got this just right, they were very welcoming, they gave us a real treat with a very generous hamper, thank you for the cream tea, and the wine! We had a perfect week.

Colin and Sally have truly made it a home from home. The views are stunning and it's great to be within walkin distance for everything you need. We didn't hear any noise from the neighbours in the below apartments at all which was great. Will definitely be visiting again and recommending the Captains rest to others. Thanks for the wine, it went down a treat the first night ! Adam & Gina
