The cottage is lovely, cosy and hosts very welcoming. The two lounges are great for bigger groups. There is enough parking in front the church for 3 cars. The sponge cake on arrival and dog treats and toys were a lovely touch. It was peaceful, quiet and there was ample space. We would book again as it was a home from home.

A super week spent in a lovely part of Devon with great weather. Had cosy nights in front of the wood burner and lots of fun playing air hockey. The cottage was clean and comfortable but the garden needed a lot more care and attention. There were a few chipped mugs and plates which needed replacing and the parking situation is an absolute nightmareRead more especially with three cars, two children under three years old and three dogs.
