    “This is a lovely, cosy cottage for two.”

    Well-equipped and very clean. The owner - who lives next door - is friendly and helpful. The cottage is well located for walks on Dartmoor and many other attractions in South Devon. The pub, which does good pub grub, is just a few minutes walk away.
