The cottage’s open-plan design is a joy, with everything where you’d expect it to be. Rustic charm blends beautifully with modern touches, metal with wood, ceramic with mid-century fabric. The lounge area is a luminous space, with modest decor creating a homely feel. The bedrooms and bathroom echo this essential comfort, bringing harmony to the house. Outside there’s a south-facing decked area at the front, and at the rear there’s a lawn with patio, seating and a BBQ for al-fresco refreshments.

Excellent property. Very high standard of cleanliness and furnishings/decor. Owners friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. We swam in the pool every day, which was a great end to some long days spent exploring the area. Pool area is well equipped and we had the pool to ourselves every time we were in there. The walk around the grounds gives some amazinRead moreg views across the river! Plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. A relaxing escape. Hide

A delightful, well appointed cottage in glorious surroundings. We had a super week. Our grandchildren were in the pool everyday, and challenged us to ptanque every evening too. We had busy days out and would recommend Dartmoor Zoo! A walk down to Weir Quay is also worth doing.

As self catering novices we feel strongly that this property and owners set the bar very high. An extremely peaceful setting with picturesque views. The cottage was spotless and all our needs provided for. The exclusive use of the swimming pool added to the enjoyment. Be prepared for the single track lanes but entirely worth the effort.
