It is a delightful bungalow, very comfortable and welcoming. It really is a home from home stay. The location is excellent not far from Paignton, Brixham, the Steam Train, the Zoo together, with some lovely walks.

The property is very cleverly designed and comfortable, and perfectly equipped. We especially loved sitting in the garden looking over the hills. The area has lots to offer in terms of places to see and we enjoyed our coastal walks and cycling in Dartmoor. Neil was very hospitable, making sure we had everything we needed. We would love to return someday and would not hesitate to recommend this property to others.
