The cottage is well-equipped, particularly the kitchen, and is modern and comfortable. It is fairly easy to reach many attractions in North Devon (Hartland peninsular and Clovelly), North Cornwall (Bude and Tintagel), Dartmoor (including Castle Drogo and Lydford Gorge), and even the Eden Project. However, a car is essential as you will need to drive for about half an hour to reach any of the above. The pub in Highampton was a little disappointing but the Half Moon in Sheepwash and the Rydon Inn in Holsworthy both served excellent food.
The pool was fantastic and we used it quite a lot, and the on-site laundry facilities were also good. However, there is no longer a sauna. The internet connection can be a little temperamental but this was not a great problem for us.
Although the cottage was fairly clean, opening the Velux windows revealed that these particular areas hadn't been cleaned for some time - there were a lot of cobwebs !
Overall, the cottage was big enough for the three of us, but as we went into our second week we found the lack of space a little more difficult to live with, although this was partly due to the weather not being so great. I would recommend staying here, but were there four or five of you, I think you might find it a little cramped.
Last minute booking.
Very quiet position, close to Dartmoor and excellent for exploring north Cornwall and Devon.
The cottage was clean and well equipped with lots of attention to detail, information of where to visit.
The cottage is part of a larger development and if you walk a short distance towards the lake, the views are amazing!
Would definitely recommend and re-visit!
The owner had spent a lot of time and effect to inform us of all we needed to know before we arrived and when we arrived. A welcome pack was posted with keys so we could read to pre plan days out and activities of the local area as well as useful site and cottage info. When we arrived the owner had left laminates to explain how everything worked which was really useful.
The kitchen was well equip and the knives were nice and sharp. Enough dish washer tablets to do us the week were gratefully appreciated. Had a problem with a washing machine but by using the number on the wall it was sorted within a few working hours.
Our only wish was that the pool stayed open longer as we really enjoyed the use of it so much.
A very comfortable place to stay. A quiet retreat which ticked the boxes for a very relaxing week in the Devon countryside.
