  • "This is the perfect base to explore all of Devon and Cornwall."

    It is on a working farm with pigs and sheep in pens. Roaming free are geese, chickens and turkeys which is so lovely to see. The accommodation has a beautiful view over the fishing lake and has everything you need to enjoy your break. Take everything needed(food etc) as it really is rural so no local shops to stroll to. Bob the owner cannot do more to help, we had a fantastic time thanks to his knowledge of beaches shops etc. I wouldn't change a thing about this place and will definitely be returning
