Stylish and comfortable, the living room has a log burner, perfect for those spring and autumn evenings after exploring all this the lovely area has to offer. There is a small private patio at the rear of the property and across the quiet lane a raised lawned area complete with summer house and superb views over the countryside and through the valley to South Pool providing a perfect spot to relax, unwind and watch the sun go down with a chilled glass of wine.

a lovely cottage- thank you

October 2014

A real quiet place. The Cottage was lovely. Clean and warm. Has a lovely Garden, our children loved it. Only the entrance for parking with a bigger car (we had a Citroen C8) could be a small problem for the first one or two times. When you looking for a peaceful place, you will be right there. But the next Town is about 15 - 20 Minutes by car. Bernd from Austria

Lilac Cottage is the perfect place to get away from it all while still being close enough to enjoy the fabulous beaches and towns of the a South Hams. Local pub: Millbrook Inn serves superb food and we also visited the Oyster Shack, Crabshell Inn and Gara Rock. A culinary delight around every corner! Can't wait to come back soon.

May 2014

We will be returning to this cottage as it is in the perfect location for us.

April 2014

We would definitely come back to this pretty little cottage. Warm cosy, peaceful, lovely garden space for our children to play in and centrally located to visit all of the amazing beaches. Really lovely.
