Our grandchildren could hide under trees and thoroughly enjoyed gathering windfall plums and apples. What a lovely Devon town with excellent restaurants and pubs.

The cottage has everything you want and more. It is exceptionally well maintained.The owner Richard is a genuine guy and makes sure you have all that you need to make your stay the best it can be. You can walk to two pubs, one by road approx. 40 minutes, the other along a public footpath, 30 minutes. Or you can take the car but I recommend the walks. Ideally located for access to Dartmoor and the north coast of Devon. I cold write much more but the simple fact is this property is one of the best we have stayed in and we would happily return.

Beautiful surroundings,quiet and peaceful. Comfortable beds, suitable facilities to cook and wash clothes. We had 2 young children, there is an electric fence to be careful of if you do have young ones. My children had a great time here, we used it as a base to do day trips.
