This is a beautiful farmhouse with everything you could need. It’s spacious & the decor & cleanliness is of a high standard. Would recommend to anyone & will hopefully be returning soon. Mr Phillip Harris - 9th November 2018
A really lovely spacious and well appointed holiday home. We were two couples and two babies and we couldn’t have asked for a better set up. Loved being able to dine in the garden while the babas each snoozed in their own rooms. Such a great position to explore the best of what South Devon has to offer - we had glorious summer weather but can see it would be super cosy in winter too. Would definitely visit again!!Ms Anna-Louise Leonard - 2nd July 2018
