Excellent place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

What an idyllic location this is. Superb comfortable accommodation, spotlessly clean. Very well equipped. WiFi is not very strong but we knew this and it certainly didn’t spoil our stay. Owners very helpful especially to get us out with the heavy snowfalls experienced over the weekend. Highly recommended! We will definitely consider staying here again if available, possibly when the weather is warmer so we can enjoy more of the beautiful countryside.

Excellent Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped cosy and warm. Ideal base for exploring the area. Really nice lake alongside the cottage. looks like it is well stocked. Even I caught a few fish in March!!. Lovely welcome when we arrived. So quiet and peaceful. Weather for us was ok but can imagine it would be wonderful in the summer. Looking forward to a return trip.

Clean, comfy, quiet, an excellent hideaway in beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage even in not so great weather. Lovely outlook. Private but not isolated. Good quality furnishings. Very comfortable bed. Modern clean kitchen with sufficient equipment to make self catering easy. Parking good though take care with potholes down access lane. Charming and helpful owner. 2 pubs in village very friendly & menus looked good though ran out of days eat there. 35 mins pretty drive to coastal path at Bolberry Down. Would love to stay here again in warm sunshine as beautiful setting. Useful Co Op in Modbury if driving through that area as didn't make it to Ivybridge this time.
