The cottage itself is very nice, clean, relatively comfortable. However the big let down is the location, the road it is on is very busy and very noisey. Does not make for very peaceful holiday.

Absolutely brilliant. Bottle of Cava on arrival, very well equipped kitchen with some essentials like sugar and coffee for the unprepared ;) , very comfortable bed and good WiFi signal!

After hours of searching I'm extremely happy to have booked and stayed at the crib, the modern cottage is absolutely stunning and with the poor weather it made it so easy to stay indoors. The bed is comfortable, smart TV's in both rooms and a bottle of wine was a nice touch! It's nice to stay somewhere and have tea, coffee, milk and sugar already tRead morehere, the owner really thought about the extras. Very happy! Hide

The property was lovely and to a very high spec, equipped better than any other self catering cottages we have been to. The tea, coffee, milk and bottle of bubbly was a lovely welcome touch. On road parking was not a problem

The Crib is in a very convenient location as a base to visit places in the area although it is on a busy road. The property is very clean, well maintained and comfortable - and it was nice to find milk and wine in the fridge on arrival.

Reviewed by Michelle 18th August 2018

The cottage is absolutely stunning! Couldn't have asked for anything more luxury... the only downfall is the location. It's on a VERY busy road right in the middle of an industrial estate. Not an ideal location but the cottage was beautiful and has everything you would need for your stay.

Reviewed by Brian 8th August 2018

This is a lovely, very modern cottage. The equipment is excellent and all very clean. It's a good spot to tour South Devon, Dartmoor and Cornwall from. You will need to be in a car as it's not a good spot if you're not driving. Parking is on a busy road, so leave your parking light on at night.

Reviewed by Brett 28th July 2018

A good amount of storage everywhere and well equipped kitchen. Bluetooth amplifier with built in speakers great for music. Only roadside parking unless you have a tiny (smart) car. Bring fans if hot weather!
