                                                                                                      5 of 5

We even headed to Cornwall for a day. Although near the road, Milk Churn is very quiet. Property is very clean, modern and well kitted out. Loads of DVDs for when TV has repeats and you want to get away from depressing news programs. Having the heating on for us after a wet and windy day on Dartmoor was especially welcome. Strongly recommended.
