The cottage is very isolated but would be great if you just want to chill once the issues raised with the owner are resolved (beds and settees) Has a lovely warm swimming pool which you can reserve for yourself If you need to shop the supermarkets are almost half an hour drive away so come prepared Good local pubs are about 10 miles away but the puRead moreb in Bere Ferrers serves good food when its open Very little interaction with the owner but that could be a good thing.

As self catering novices we feel strongly that this property and owners set the bar very high. An extremely peaceful setting with picturesque views. The cottage was spotless and all our needs provided for. The exclusive use of the swimming pool added to the enjoyment. Be prepared for the single track lanes but entirely worth the effort.

We had another excellent stay, Stuart and Beryl were welcoming and helpful hosts. Enjoyed the pool every day, went cycling (warning; it's hilly) around the peninsula twice. Remarkably quiet and peaceful, beautiful surroundings. The tennis court five mins away at Bere Ferrers was also useful. The camellias were still out and quite impressive.
