The cottage was lovely bright and very clean and had all the kit for a great stay from home. The bed was soft and cosy. The lake was very quite and great to walk around for some me time.
A week in this delightful hideaway just wasn't long enough! Its very well equipped, has an enormous and comfortable bed, a secluded courtyard garden and a lake for sailing my model boats with a skiff to recover them from the reeds! The friendly and helpful owners live next door but do not intrude on your privacy.
The location, midway between the north coast and Dartmoor, is convenient (20-25 mins to reach either) and Halwill Junction has a useful general store. There is a long and bumpy drive to reach the property but that only serves to create the seclusion, The silence is golden. There are several local walks within short drives of the cottage.
The only duty you will have during your stay is to close the garden gate in the evenings to stop the Deer eating the flowers! So we shall certainly be back, but for 2 weeks next time.
The cottage was a perfect location from which to visit several coastal spots & other inland places of interest, including some spectacular walks. It was the loveliest place to come back to and relax in, walk round the lake, have a stroll in the woods or just sit and read in the lovely courtyard garden. The quality of everything in the cottage was exceptional. The super kingsize bed was sooooooo comfortable. The owners are accessible, friendly and clearly committed to providing a memorable stay for the guests.

Accommodation everything we wanted for a quiet peaceful holiday in an idyllic location gardens and grounds were excellent.
Good welcome with everything explained accommodation was spotless with all equipment one could wish for
Myself, husband and 14 month old son have just arrived home from our first family holiday and thanks to Ann and John it was perfect. The cottage is situated off the beaten track and provides the perfect get away from the busier parts of Devon, but was a perfect base to explore the area.
The cottage itself was beautiful and it had every amenity we needed, even toys and cutlery for our son. Fresh flowers and lovely cake was an added bonus!
The lake was perfect and my husband enjoyed the rowing boat available.
John and Ann have created a perfect cottage and one we would love to come back to.
Thank you for a lovely week.
