Bluebells cottage is in a lovely, secluded, wooded valley, though that does mean quite narrow Devon lanes to navigate for a few miles in or out by car. You can walk on footpaths to the local village in one direction, or through shady woodland in the other. The owners are very welcoming and the grounds and on-site services are exceptional.

Lovely dog friendly cottage. Had pretty much everything we needed. Owners very friendly and welcoming. Great fenced dog paddock and dog walks in the woods in the grounds. Useful to note however that there is no fenced garden directly outside the cottage so you cant just let dogs out of the door in the morning or last thing at night.
