I am sorry that you felt the need to leave this review, but I do feel it is very unreasonable. You stayed with me during the winter months and it is very clearly stated on my website and booking sites that I do not offer breakfast during this time, and prices are considerably cheaper to compensate for this.

She let us view the room before deciding and then made us a tray of tea and coffee with home made cake! The décor and colour schemes are wonderful, as are all the extras in the rooms!

Stayed here for 4 nights and had an enjoyable stay. Our room was comfortable, spotlessly clean and had great amenities. We could park our car in the car park and walk in to town, an easy 30 minute walk. It made a good base for exploring South Devon.
