Our first experience in a holiday cottage, A great base for exploring Devon and Cornwall Very peaceful and quiet, exactly what we were looking for. Tight and twisty lanes all around encouraged us to use the shortest route option on the sat nav which kept us off of all the main roads, very rarely seeing other traffic.
