We have just returned from a lovely few days in Devon, staying at this delightful cottage. We were well catered for, the cottage was extremely clean and very central. Our twin daughters were also well looked after. Trish was very helpful and friendly and seemed to have thought of everything in the cottage. We definitely hope to return.

Spent a week here and used this two bedroom cottage as a base to walk Dartmoor and surrounding attractions. The thatched cottage has been tastefully renovated and has everything you need to make excellent meals. While we were on our own we noticed that the owner has LOTS of books and games for kids. The raised patio garden and table and chairs meant we could dine outside most nights. Have real fond memories of this...
