  • “Lovely week fishing and exploring gardens with our dog.”

    Lots of fish to catch especially in the top lake. The cottage was tastefully decorated with everything we needed. There was even a lock up cupboard for the fishing equipment. We enjoyed walks in the wood and loved the peacefulness. Owners friendly and helpful. Dog friendly beach at Black rock in Bude was 40 mins away. We went to stunning gardens at RHS Rosemoor at Great Torrington, Tavistock and The garden house. We highly recommend Legge Farm and Heron cottage.
