We loved our week at this cottage, it is a real gem, deep in the Devon countryside, where the lanes are full of ferns and wildflowers, birdsong fills the air, and oak woods with bluebells invited us in.

It is off of the main tourist trail, a peaceful retreat where we really relaxed and had great sleep, yet also near to the coast, such as my favourite Braunton Burrows and Saunton Sands, as well as to Dartmoor and Exmoor.

Reviewed May 3, 2016 for a stay in July 2015

Very welcoming cosy cottage with pretty thatch. Great sized rooms for four sharing the space. Plenty of good quality 'kitchenalia' - plates, bowls, gadgets. Very pretty terraced garden with several seating options. Local walks with views & wooded paths - would be excellent spot to walk a dog. Situation was well placed for access to local towns & great rhs garden but found journeys to coast were longer than expected so best to plan for a full day out & about.
