    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    Our 300 year old cob cottage has 3 bedrooms, sleeps 7, and is situated in a quiet village just 15 minutes from the north coast sandy beaches. The cottage is located in the quiet and peaceful village of North Petherwin.

The Master Bedroom has an new luxury ensuite bathroom. The detached cottage was the village Post Office many years ago, and boasts beamed ceilings and an inglenook fireplace with a wood burner and bread oven.

I love the west country where I originally come from and have stayed in various... more

Advertised dishwasher seemed to be cold only & didn't clean anything. Haven't washed up manually so much for years! Could do with a means of communicating minor things - we ended up swapping light bulbs around... more

Dishwasher has been temperamental of late - new one measured up, acquired and to be installed in winter close down - 1st two weeks in Dec... more
