The location is fantastic and your home was perfect for us as well as being impeccably furnished and of the highest cleanliness of anywhere that we have stayed previously. We hope to be able to have a return visit at some point in the future.

It was everything we expected and more. Warm, cosy, incredibly clean and tidy. Great central location, good little shop at local garage 200 metres away and good pub in short walking distance - uphill there so downhill back! Fab to walk our dogs in safety in grounds early morning and evening and Alex and Annie warm and friendly hosts. The Internet was absolutely fine on our phones but my old laptop wouldn't connect so just be aware. Alex did say he has plans to improve the signal to the cottage. Not that we wanted it but I think there was only one tv Chanel. We rarely go to the same location twice but we would certainly consider visiting Lapford Mill again if Alex and Annie will have us! A big thank you to them.
