Excellent accommodation and location
We have just returned from a 2 week holiday staying in Yew Tree Cottage, Stoke Fleming and what a fab few weeks we had. The cottage was just what we wanted - cosy, well equipped, superb location, quiet - all in all just fantastic. Beach was ideally located for us to walk too and from with our two children - aged 8 and 9 - and all the things you need for a day at the beach with two children. Cottage was clean - although could tell a dog had been there due to smell in living room and amount of hair still left - and well equipped. Linen was changed at end of our first week which we have never had before. We love quiet areas and Yew Tree Cottage in Stoke Fleming is beautiful, listening to church clock chime and opening curtains to see cows right by you or see a glimpse of the sea. Dartmouth about 10 minutes drive away. Pub right on doorstep and the beach of Blackpool Sands is like being in the Med! We didn't want to come home, will definitely go again and can highly recommend. Thank you Toad Hall and owners of Yew Tree Cottage.
