A lovely cottage on a working farm in a lovely part of the West Country, with lots of places to visit and walks to do within a short drive. The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. A wood burning stove was very welcome as October more chilly. The owners were very welcoming and very relaxed. We will be returning.

We found the cottage comfortable and ideal for dogs. The owners were very friendly and made it clear that they were there if we needed anything. We enjoyed an afternoon in the games room, when it was raining outside. Beautiful location.

A very special place, in particular for animal lovers. We received a warm welcome from our host Sally and family who were there if we needed them. There is a communal games room, library and much beach equipment free to borrow during your stay. The old farm buildings have been converted into high speck holiday lets of various sizes. My son, fiance,Read more their two children of 2 and 5, my husband and I will definitely return having enjoyed everything about our summer break. Hide
