                                                            We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The cream tea left for us was a lovely treat and much appreciated. We would definitely stay at the cottage again and would highly recommend.

                                                            We`ve just stayed here for a weekend and its perfect, everything is just so clean and tidy and tastefully decorated.The owners are very welcoming on arrival they had left us homemade scones with cream and jam which were delicious.. Its situated in lovely surroundings with a pub just down the road which we walked too ( a torch is needed) There are plenty of lovely places not too far from there so a great location to explore..I would recommend this to anyone for a perfect holiday home, in the summer it would be lovely as there is seating outside..

                                                            Fantastic, clean and cosy cottage!

                                                            Found this beautiful cottage after searching for ages for somewhere around the Plymouth area and we were not disappointed! Cottage is in a scenic and quite area but only a few minutes from the Plymouth ferry and main roads. Cottage itself is immaculate and very clean on arrival with all the essentials you could ask for. Would most definitely stay here again and recommend to others.
