Delightful Cottage

5 of 5
We found this a wonderful place to stay. The cottage is charming, comfortable and very well equipped and there are large grounds to explore and enjoy. The location was ideal for our excursions to both north and south Devon. We particularly appreciated the warm welcome and the tour of the very interesting mill.
