What a lovely stay, the internet was non existent for the first few days and intermittent after that which was not a bad thing, as we played family games and spent lots of quality time together.

Lovely quiet location, nice walks around but close to Tiverton. Cottage is detached with lots of generous sized rooms and lots of parking. Loved the hot tub and it also has a big lawned area which we didnt realise.

Pros: spacious lovely house, fab hot tub, TVs in all bedrooms. Well suited to multigenerational holidays. Well equipped kitchen. Welcoming host. Cons: aga doesnt work anymore, Wifi can be patchy. Can stream on one TV at a time but cant cope with others on devices too. It is a working farm and the cottage is close by so be prepared for the smells anRead mored sounds of a working farm.
