We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and in East Devon. The farm shop 1.5 km up the road made it feel as though we were in France! The cottage is well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. There is so much to do within easy reach of the cottage. The owners were very helpful and available whilst also respectful of our privacy.
