    The cottage is in a very central place. The cottage is beautiful, quiet & in a lovely part of Devon. We’re looking to book for next year!

    Very comfortable cottage with all bedrooms enjoying en suite facilities - ideal for our group of three couples. Luckily we had a person in our party who was familiar with cooking on the oil-fired Redfyre range as it's quite challenging for a novice!

    Had a lovely stay at Swallows Cottage. The cottage was very clean and homely and the garden was great for the dog and children. It was very well equipped with lovely views. It was also more spacious than expected from the pictures. Lots of local attractions and beaches a short drive away. Would recommend to others and would stay there again.

    We had a lovely time as a family of six adults and two dogs. The garden was well enclosed for the dogs and it was useful to have the open field area to let them have a run around, as the local walks from the cottage were all down narrow lanes. We got to grips with the aga and enjoyed cooking some lovely meals on it. We felt the only thing missing was some tall hi ball glasses and some fizz flute glasses.
