Wonderful weekend at Dartonia Cottage

5 of 5
Wonderful weekend with my sister and some friends for her birthday. The cottage was warm and comfortable despite the appalling January weather. There is plenty of space for 6 people and two dogs. We loved the top floor room with its en-suite shower, and fantastic views across the estuary. There's a well equipped kitchen/diner with plenty of room for dinner and cards (we also ate out once), we'll definitely be back.

A hidden gem

5 of 5
We arrived on a very wet and cold Friday night from Torquay, opened the door of the house and were all blown away by the warmth and general good feeling of the place. The lounge/kitchen/dining area are really great with everything you need in them. We all loved the little touches such as Breakfast extras/games/Welcome [pack. The bedrooms/bathrooms were brilliant, very comfortable. All in all we loved it. P S The Bell Inn is in our opinion is the best pub in the country, the food is fantastic, the staff are lovely, we went there every night. If you are looking for somewhere out of town, then this house/Bell inn etc its a great place to relax.
