So pleased we had this accommodation it’s was totally spotless. The added extras of a welcome pack for us was great so we could have a cup of tea after a long journey was greatly appreciated. Also the dog treats, dog towel and bowl left were so thoughtful. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the property. It was easy to use the buses should you not want to use your car whilst there. Goodrington sands very close by and is dog friendly

Mrs Vicki W,

The property was spotlessly clean with an excellent standard of decor and presentation. Equipped with everything you could possibly need. Lovely garden. Great location, five minutes walk from local shops and a short drive to the sea front and beyond. Superb property ideal for two couples or a family. Loved the area, particularly Brixham. Also visited the Eden Project.

Ms Hazel R,

Very lovely place and we will book again next year and year after that too!

Mrs Rupinder B,
