The cottage was very comfortable and in a lovely quiet location. The pool was excellent. The owner was friendly and had left us tea, coffee, milk, fruit juice, etc. etc. which we found very useful. We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate in recommending the cottage to anyone else.

Charming house & gardens. Well equipped kitchen & swimming pool was a bonus to enjoy. All bedrooms I noted did not have full sized beds which I did find at 510 quite restrictive.

What a fantastic place, a warm friendly welcome with everything you could need. A lovely big pool and beautiful garden space. It was hard to tear ourselves away to all the wonders of Devon and Cornwall nearby!
