Accommodation was excellent, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Good location and ideal for riding holidays. Also really appreciated the complimentary refreshments on arrival and the real flowers, a very nice welcome touch to make us feel immediately at home.
Mrs Circuitt, Totnes, September 2012
The cottage was just as we'd hoped; clean, warm and cosy. The owners were friendly and helpful and our children particularly enjoyed the horses and dogs' puppies. Would definitely go back for a return visit.
