“This is deep Devon”
Reviewed 20 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

While close to Widecombe this is deep Devon, in the most beautiful part of the Southern Moor. The cottage is charming and remarkably well equipped (now with good internet access) and the walks from the doorstep are as good as its gets. The bed is generous in width if a little unforgiving in hardness and the log burner a joy. Be warned, Devon has some lanes that are narrow, some that are very rough and some that have very hard stone walls on both sides. The approach to this cottage is all three! But don't be put off, this is a very lovely place.

“Small but perfectly formed.”
Reviewed 17 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Great place with everything you need for a get away from it all holiday. Tastefully decorated together with quality bed linen and towels. The situation was idyllic with stunning scenery although the roads are not for the faint hearted. The owners were happy to help with any queries and supplied more than enough logs for us. Would definitely return.

“Beautifully situated”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Very beautiful area with loads of walks nearby. It is a well equipped comfortable cottage and cosy fire. Two extra bits would have made it five star and that would be the addition of a small microwave and a small portable FM/LW radio (we could pick up a good signal in the car parked outside).

“A perfect place to explore Dartmoor”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A beautifully designed dwelling, situated in a peaceful valley. It contains everything you will need and more. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, even lending a map as I had left mine at home. You can walk straight from the door or there are many parking places on the moor to start a walk from. There are small towns within a short drive to stock up with groceries and some good pubs in the area too. A perfect getaway.
