Very peaceful and rural. If you are looking for somewhere you can relax and walk the dogs without bumping into other dogs it is perfect. Lovely walk through the woods to the pub for a meal is 2 miles. Dorian, the owner, is very nice and helpful. At night there are no street lights, cars or any noise, great for stargazing.

Such a lovely cottage with wonderful woodland and gardens. Very peaceful location too. Our four golden retrievers had lots of space to run around and chill out.

Many thanks for the lovely flowers, bottle of wine and scones. The house was very private even though it adjoined the owner's property and the outside covered patio area provided an extra relaxed seating area for both ourselves and the dog. Enjoyed the local area with beautiful National Trust properties and NGS gardens.

A lovely cottage in a delightful setting, literally a stones throw from the edge of a steep wooded valley which we had great fun exploring with our three dogs, but also only 30minute drive from Dartmoor for wilder walks.
