    "Lovely landlady - very friendly and helpful. The only thing I would mention is that the beds are not really comfy - either very hard or a bit saggy, but we got used to them.The barn is very nice - everything you need is there and the location is great. There is a lovely "dog welcome pack" as well with towels, treats etc which is a lovely touch"

    "Lovely cottage, well equipped, warm and quiet, looking out to an old church. Very welcoming hosts. Perfect location for local walks or short drive to the Dartmoor National park. We all enjoyed our stay (2 adults and 5 children aged between 5 and 13). Thank you!"
