  • "Perfect holiday cottage and exactly what we needed."

    Perfect location, everything is within easy reach just a short walk to Blackpool Sands from the house, a few minutes walk to the centre of the village, where a local shop can be found. The house has everything one might need. The bed was very comfortable. The owners, Sean & Tinah were super attentive and lovely, ensured that we had everything we needed throughout our stay. I would stay again, and would recommend anyone looking for a place in Devon to stay here.
