The village is situated right on the famous Tarka Trail, a 32-mile walking and cycling route, which runs from north to south through some of Devon’s most scenic countryside. Other popular local attractions include the fascinating visitor centre at Dartington Crystal factory, the beautiful gardens at RHS Rosemoor, and the traditional former-fishing town of Bideford.

Cottage very well furnished with all facilities one could wish for. In secluded property adjacent to 2 others but not overlooked. Close to excellent walks. Villagers very friendly with short walk to a delightful local pub with great food and amazing range of ciders.

We had a lovely relaxing stay at the Rectory Hayloft. The village is very quiet and peaceful and the Hayloft is well equipped and very well thought out.

Reviewed by Gary 26th October 2018

Although the Hayloft was in an idyllic peaceful location it was also close to many interesting attractions. Comfy bed, well equipped kitchen and up to date bathroom made our break very relaxing.

The Cottage was beautiful and in a stunning village location and close to the larger Towns. It was very well equipped, beautifully clean and very modern. The owners were very friendly and had left 2 Doggy blankets for our Springer Spaniels and also a small bowl of Doggy biscuits. We all had a fantastic time and are considering booking again for nexRead moret year. Perfect!! Hide
