    The owners were really friendly and helpful and the flat, though small, was very clean and had everything we needed. It is ideally placed for visiting Dartmoor and Plymouth and also the north and south Devon coasts. The only slightly negative thing was the road outside which was very busy and with the windows open could be quite noisy. This didn't affect our enjoyment though, we had a really great time and would happily return.

    A lovely little appartment that was perfect for us. Such a shame we couldn't stay the theee nights as planned due to illness but the owners were very understanding when we checked out early. We will 100% be back when next visiting friends in local Tavistock.

    Lovely studio apartment, comfortable with all you need, excellent welcome pack on arrival. Friendly owners and a good base to explore West Dartmoor. Shops in Tavistock accessible easily by car. Entrance gate not easy to spot from the road and the only downside is that property entrance is via stairs.
