Perfect for two or four people. Lovely situation, quiet, peaceful and excellent for a chilled out break. Would thoroughly recommend a stay at the cottage. Close enough to all local amenities, supermarkets and lovely pubs in the area.

A beautiful quiet holiday cottage in a beautiful location which was just what we were looking for with our 2 young children, aged 3 and 5. The location was great for visiting local attractions and well placed for travel from the North to use as a base for exploring the Devon and Cornwall coastline. The cottage was warm, cosy and clean with a great Read morehot tub and warm cosy fire and underfloor heating. We had a great time and would definitely use the property again if were to visit the area again. Hide
