  • “Perfect, pet friendly, stay in Devon countryside”

    6 adults and a baby (highchair provdied but we took out own travel cot) ...

    6 adults and a baby (highchair provdied but we took out own travel cot) Hotel quality beds - soooo comfortable. All rooms were spacious and clean. Fully equipped kitchen - saucpans, frying pan, crockery, cutlery and utensils. Filter coffee machine was a bonus. Coffee, tea, sugar (and milk on arrival) plus delicious fairy cakes! Fantastic outdoor space, immaculate garden and a welcoming hot tub after long walks. We took our camping chairs for the beach and used them in the garden. All in all we had a brilliant time - thank you Catkins
