“Cosy character cottage with a modern twist.”
Reviewed April 9, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Fantastic cottage with a lovely, safe little beach on the doorstep and wonderful views to Burgh Island. The Cottage is beautifully decorated and could not fault its cleanliness.
We enjoyed the many beautiful walks from the doorstep and loved being able to warm ourselves up in front of the log burner upon our return. We’ve already looking at booking our return! Thanks

“Lovely views”
Reviewed September 15, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The cottage is in a good location with views across the bay. The beach at the foot of the road doesn't allow dogs so if you have a dog then the next beach along via the coastal path is the one to let the dogs run on. The cottage itself is very pretty. Lots of nice touches. Comfy beds and nice linen. The beach towels came in handy along with the washing machine. The area storing said machines is rather bleak but the bonus of them overlooked this. The neighbours are all very friendly. Our dog wanted to jump the neighbouring wall to wander off so bear in mind if you have dog that's likely to wander as the outdoor space isn't particularly dog proof . The little shop at the end of the road came in very handy. The holiday flew by and we were sad to leave. Friendly ,helpful hosts. Thank you

The cottage is well equipped and close to the sea. With lots of walks in easy reach. The accommodation is well presented and has everything you need. We enjoyed our stay particularly as we could walk to Bigbury Sands and Burgh Island

Stayed here for a weekend away with my wife and baby, the place has a great view, is really close to the beach, there's a shop really close by for everything you need.

Done out to a great spec, had a comfortable stay and will definitely consider returning at some point!

Brilliant location with a lovely view of the sea and sunset. Only a few minutes walk to the beach and the cottage is beautiful - full of character, warmth and welcoming - a real home from home - couldn't recommend highly enough.

“The perfect base”
Reviewed September 12, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Had a lovely few days at the cottage, its location on the south Devon coast is perfect for exploring the local area which is full of delights. The cottage itself is very nicely presented - wonderfully bright during the day, but perfectly cosy at night, and all very easy to find.

Would highly recommend!
