The Cabin, a delightful traditional Devon cottage is tucked away in the village of Frogmore in the South Hams with pretty views both of the creek leading to the Salcombe estuary and of the surrounding countryside.

We had a good week at the Cabin and felt it was value for money as there was a reduction for only the two of us. If there were two couples the only one bathroom would have caused problems. The owners were very generous with their welcome pack and soap etc but were light with the cleaning items especially for the bathroom.The hoover bag was so full it was smelling when used which thankfully I managed to change.The local pub was on "winter" hours open at 1800 so no lunch time bevies for us.
Glad that you had an enjoyable stay at The Cabin. It's very popular and the bathroom situation doesn't appear to cause problems with most guests. We've passed your other observations to the owners who will obviously get them resolved. Thank you for letting us know.

We've looked into the local pub's opening hours. They close for Monday lunchtimes only in the quieter months. In the main season they're open for business!

A lovely cottage just what we needed for a relaxing week with a fantastic view over the river
The Cabin is a perfect 'home form home.. 'So many properties shriek 'holiday letting' at you as soon as you enter, but the Cabin really does make you feel you are renting someone's home, although we know that is not the case.
Just a great place to stay, well equipped, with a lovely view
Excellent accommodation, great location.
The Cabin at Frogmore provided wonderful holiday accommodation and the owners attention to detail in meeting our need is excellent
Lovely place to stay, the cream tea,wine and dog treats were a lovely touch. Would love to stay again
wonderful cottage well maintained lovely spot.
The cottage was excellent and the location was beautiful, the owners left us a lovely surprise, tea and scones with jam and clotted cream, a bottle of wine and even fresh flowers in the dining room which was a lovely thought. We had a fantastic holiday, very relaxing, we would love to go back sometime.
The Cabin was perfect for us, we have two boys aged 8 and 11 and the garden and field allowed for lots of outdoor running around. The Cabin was well equipped and the cream tea, flowers and wine as a welcome were a really lovely surprise. The large porch area as an entrance was really useful for muddy boots and wood. The spiral stairs to the upstairs rooms is a bit tight and would not recommend for the elderly or unsteady Only 10 mins drive to Torcorss and a huge beach. With walks up the estuary at low tide and coastal path at high tide we didn't need to use the car. Would highly recommend.
Great company to use , have booked 3 times and each time the properties and the holidays have been excellent.
