    Lovely cottage, fully furnished with all you need for a relaxing time. Beautiful garden, which is a delight in the evening sunshine. Great local pub for food and drink. Wonderful walks across the moors from the doorstep.

    We’ve had a lovely holiday in one of the most beautiful areas of this country and to top it off a truly lovely cottage in a friendly village. Our spaniel was in his element with Dartmoor on the doorstep, plenty of walks and new smells to investigate.

    The cottage is in a great location for walking on Dartmoor and for visiting Tavistock. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the cottage had everything we needed. It's perfect for 2 people, clean, well stocked and very comfortable. The photos don't do it justice. It was lovely and I'd highly recommend it.

    A wonderful cottage- well equipped and friendly owners who are available for a chat or advice on the local area but not intrusive. If you want somewhere to stay and relax this is the place. Well tended garden to enjoy and Dartmoor on the doorstep for great walking.

    Really lovely place to stay with everything you could wish for especially the beautiful gardens. Scenic walks right from doorstep and friendly local pub with garden. Plenty to do in and around the area, we wished we could have stayed longer. The experienced owners have got it just perfect and it was made extra special by the warm welcome and helpfulness of the neighbours whilst the owners were away. Thank you so much to you all, we would love to come back to stay again.
