A lovely, almost perfect setting. Good 'all round ' accommodation. Very friendly neighbours but you need to be a considerate tenant during your stay as you are in very close proximity to each other. Great for me as I found them really lovely.

The cottage was in a great location for exploring the coast of Devon, very quiet at night which was wonderful, falling asleep to the sound of the owls was quite a treat! Plenty of walking areas for the dogs but beware at night, it was very dark once you are away from the lights of the cottages.
