This place was amazing it was better then what we expected. For our first family holiday it was brilliant. Many things to do in the towns near by or a drive away. Hot tub was lovely. We highly recommend to family and friends.

Even better than I remembered!

5 of 5
Returning to Lower Willsworthy for an Easter break we have been overwhelmed by the warm and friendly welcome , Mike and Sophie are perfect hosts- attentive and helpful but not over bearing. The cottage is immaculate and beautifully appointed with every modern comfort- staying there with our two young children there is plenty of space and they absolutely adore the gardens and being able to see the horses, cattle and even deer grazing in the fields! Lower Willsworthy is ideally located for exploring Dartmoor and the Tamar Valley and we enjoyed days out at Tavy Cleave, Lydford , Wembury beach and Cotehele. Thanks again, we hope to see you very soon!
