“A truly idyllic spot in the South Hams…stunning valley scenery and great walking and running out of the front door. Despite the cold and wet weather outside, the cottage was warm and welcoming and was very well-equipped for a short stay. We loved hearing the owls as we woke and the spring bulbs popping up both in the hedgerows and planters outside. A magical space.”
