The cottage was within easy commuting distance from Ashburton and I passed Buckfast Abbey every day on my commute- how cool is that? The cottage was perfect for me. It was warm, cosy, well equipped and a peaceful haven after a hectic day's cooking. The village is picturesque and very well placed on the edge of the moors. I went walking in the evenings and at weekends and visited the welcoming pub on a few occasions. The owners Dave and Maggie were the perfect hosts. They were welcoming and always there if I needed them but respectful of my privacy. They even ate my food! Dylan the dog deserves special mention for doggy friendliness. Ashburton is a wonderful foodie town and I enjoyed visiting Totnes and Buckfastleigh when not cooking. I can highly recommend the cottage and I am tempted to come back- this time for a proper holiday!

The cottage is well located in Salcombe and very well equipped. The owners have left lots of useful information and instructions for all the equipment and amenities. It is beautifully furnished. I would not hesitate to recommend Penn Cottage.
