The property was beautifully decorated and the location was ideal. We particularly enjoyed the large garden and the chickens. Would definitely stay there again.
A second single bed in the third bedroom would extend the suitability of the property.
What a beautiful location and a stunningly beautiful cottage that was well presented. On arrival the master en suite was found to have a blocked shower waste pipe and had obviously overflowed with previous tenants, but this was only a minor inconvenience as their was another shower available.
We had a wonderful stay and have messaged Sue Cross to tell her. I have never stayed in a better equipped cottage. The scenery was stunning and the three chickens a delight, especially for the grandchildren. We would definitely book it again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect for exploring the coast and countryside. The accommodation was so enjoyable and so well equipped it was hard to leave! Fabulous views and safe and secluded area that our two year old granddaughter was able to run about without us worrying. The chickens were an added bonus!
As above. A lovely property and the caretaker - Sue - was very pleasant and very caring.
Cottage was fine. Well equipped. Think you may need to specify the exact way you walk to town and that you'll need a torch at night and wellies most of the time. More so if it's been raining. Also that the path is hilly. I wouldn't put it in the category of pub or shops nearby.
Thank you for your comments. The description details that the path into town is accessed from the property along a country lane directly into the heart of the town less than a mile away, we have added that the path is accessed from the field below the property. Our criteria for nearby pubs or shops is less than a mile, and we trust this clarifies. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in the South Hams.

Thoroughly enjoyable and the born met virtually all expectations of it. Toothbrush beaker had not been washed and some jeans found in washing machine, but nothing to spoil our enjoyment.
Sorry we missed those couple of items, but glad you had such an enjoyable stay in this wonderful barn.

Loved the cottage, very well equipped, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Grounds were fantastic for children and adults to enjoy and explore, and my six year old became very attatched to her new role as "chicken farmer"! Kitchen was a joy to cook in. Re the cleaning - it was pretty good but I did have to clean the hand basin and loo in the downstairs bathroom when we arrived. Also towels were lovely - all brand new - but it would have been nice if the sticky labels could have been removed from them and given a quick wash... It's a lovely place though and would love to return one day!
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful new property, and have passed on your comments to the owner, thank you.
