The cottage was very comfortable and if you like to get away from everywhere and relax this is certainly the place. Very dog friendly we took three with us. The small garden is secure even our tiny chihuahua couldnt escape. Holsworthy has some delicious takeaways and is handy for food shopping. We really enjoyed our week away.

The hosts are friendly and the cottage is in quiet farm surroundings but very close to main house, the patio is very secure for the dogs which was a great peace of mind. The sofa and bed isnt comfortable we raised this issue so I wouldnt let it put you off maybe email before booking to see if thats sorted. But to be honest to other people booking IRead more think its only fair to say because if you dont plan to go out much like us its important those 2 things are comfortable. Overall good property.

Fantastic cottage, ideal for a quiet get away. Very clean and has everything you need. The safe enclosed garden space was great for the dogs and the close proximity to field walks was wonderful. The owner was always willing to discuss walking opportunities and provide sun loungers when the sun came out. If you have a dog this is a very friendly plaRead morece to go. However, you will be surrounded by beautiful countryside so if you want to go to the beach you will have to travel a few miles. Hide

The cottage was cosy and comfortable with everything we needed. Lengths had been gone to in order to ensure COVID safe and plenty of additional cleaning products supplied. The dog walking field was a wonderful bonus, plenty big enough for an evening or morning amble - this should be a well published asset, our dogs loved it.

Position is a bit remote, nearest village 11 minutes drive away and roads not suitable for walking as no footpaths so car needed to explore. Wasn't really a problem for us.
