Beautiful, perfect setting, a secret escape!

4 of 5
Crow Nest Cottage is a lovely hideaway chalet, it had everything we needed, tucked away but close to all of Kingsand and Cawsand with a choice of 5 pubs/restaurants very close by, our favourites were The Devonport and The Halfway House, we would highly recommend the cottage for a couple who want to enjoy the lovely scenery and the plenty of walks but beware Duck steps have 97 steps and the cottage is tucked away in the middle of these steps, so there's no avoiding them!

Lovely cottage in a peaceful setting

5 of 5
Despite some changeable weather, we had a lovely stay. Such a peaceful location on the edge of Dartmoor, giving us easy access for walking. We also enjoyed meeting the locals, (Sheep, Cows and Ponies). The cottage is well supplied with everything we needed. We would certainly consider staying again in the future.
