  • Alan

    “Lovely property, comfortable and well-equipped.”

    Thoughtful touches included milk and cake on arrival, tea and coffee supplied along with dishwasher tablets. Access to a well-maintained, lawned garden - we were visited by a deer from the woodland bordering the area. Good value for money and Mary Tavy is a good base to explore the region.
