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 fresh eggs, milk and victoria sponge on arrival were a nice touch! Would definitely recommend to others.
