We have stayed here twice this year and both times have been excellent. We visited with our two young children (8&4) and in the summer with my parents also. The cottages are in the process of being updated and from what we have seen so far the work is great. The cottages themselves are "homely" that is to say they feel exactly correct for the setting in which they are placed which is a small community of cottages. In the summer we stayed out talking to residents (both permanent and holiday) until late in the evening with all of the children playing together and frankly it was magical if we could have bought a property there and then we would have ;) Both Pete and Margaret and now Tanya and Steve are truly fantastic site managers/hosts and could not be more accommodating, Steve is the goto guide for all things Devon Cornwall and Somerset how to get to places, sights to visit and places to walk the dog.
As a base to explore devon and somerset it's ideal although you will need access to a vehicle as its remoteness is part of the charm.
We will no doubt go back, so why not 5 stars ... THE BEDS !!!!! They need replacing ASAP. If you are used to staying in hotels or even have a half decent bed at home these truly are rubbish. Fine for kids but if you are older or larger or longer or used to comfort they are very very poor, it was the only thing that I was looking forward to getting home for. Sort this out and it'd get 5 stars from me any day for the whole experience! .... Having met them all a couple of times I'm sure this will be sorted hopefully during the refit ;)
