A perfect short break

5 of 5
We arrived in the dark to find the cottage warm and welcoming. Throughout our stay the owners Mike & Sophie were very hospitable and nothing was too much trouble for them. Despite typical English January weather we used the cottage as a base for exploring Dartmoor and we aim to go back to explore a bit more in warmer weather.

Overall impression. Very clean and beautifully furnished every little detail thought of

5 of 5
We would and have already recommended friends and family. Exceptional clean. Everything you can think of catered for, even down to hand wash. We have just come back from a wonderful time in this beautiful lodge. The owners put up and decorated a tree for us, also lovely very tasteful decorations. The beds and sofas were very comfortable. Great for families and dog owners. Ideally located for shops,pubs etc. We hope to be back next year. A very big thank you to Tracy for making it such a wonderful break.
