With two dogs it is not often you have such a nice place to spend a few days away in. Small enclosed garden gave security for them and supplied towels , covers, and treats settled them in, and us as well. The cottage is well presented, exceptionally clean and cosy, a credit to Manya. Devon cream and scones sealed it...

Management response:

Thank you for all the lovely remarks about the cottage and we hope to see you again very soon.

Superb cottage in a peaceful location, well equipped and very cosy with the log burner going. The owners are friendly, helpful and even leave cream teas for your arrival and treats for the dog.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage backs on to many lovely woodland walks with a labyrinth of public footpaths taking you into the woods and you are able to follow Elder brook that flows through our grounds right into the woods.There is a pine forest close by and endless walks across fields where you can enjoy the spring lambs,cattle,pheasants and if you are lucky some deer.In the village of Lifton there is the award winning Lifton Hall Hotel who serve wonderful Sunday roasts and also have a fun quiz night every other Tuesday.The Arundell Arms is also another good place to eat in the village.In Lifton you will also find the Lifton Farm shop which is a real treat-an ideal place to stock up on vegetables,fruit,meat and wonderful cakes.
Getting around
Passion Flower is in a very rural location and a car is essential for getting out further afield.We are situated in what the locals call the 'golden triangle',right in the middle of Okehampton,Tavistock and Launceston-all being old market towns and of great interest from an historical point of view and for what they can offer the visitor in terms of shops,cafes,museums,cinemas and theatre.
