On the day we arrived Vicki - the owner – had baked us a very tasty cake and also left a bottle of local apple juice which was much appreciated. The location and scenery is just stunning with a lake just a few minutes’ walk. The backdrop to the cottage is beautiful with nothing but pine forest and open fields. Just 5 or so minutes’ walk from the cottage is the start of a wonderful hiking trail with the River Teign running parallel to the footpath. We found a great little picnic spot with the river on one side and the forest on the other - truly magical. The cottage itself is full of character and has everything you need including a playroom at the top which our girls enjoyed using. All in all, we had a fantastic time and it truly was one of the best holidays we as a family have had. 100% recommended. Thank you to Vicki and her husband

Gorgeous garden, really enjoyable to sit outside. The tradesmans arms walking distance away with lovely food and atmosphere. Perfect holiday home for all the family from the small ones to the older generation. Highly recommended just be aware of the narrow roads in the area which are manageable once you take care. House full of lovely art and bit's and bobs and feels really homely
