The location of the cottage was good for exploring both Devon and Cornwall.
Mrs Kerridge, Wisbech, June 2012
The owner was very helpful on our arrival. She had put some milk in the fridge and left a traditional cream tea including fresh Strawberries. There was also croissants which we had for our first breakfast. The cottage itself is well placed for getting to all the popular attractions and resorts.

The owner of the cottage was so helpful to my mother and so kind to my granddaughter in showing her how to groom and wash dogs. She really loved it and it made our stay really lovely.
