Fantastic country cottage in a wonderful setting. Dog friendly with plenty of walking for our Lab. Peaceful setting, the owners were attentive and very friendly providing nice welcome touches, like scones, homemade jam and cream on arrival.

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.
