The village of Down Thomas is quiet and rural, despite being only four miles or so from the city of Plymouth. This means you get the best of both worlds. There is a good local shop and pub a couple of minutes walk away in the village and another decent pub about 25 minutes walk down the lane. We actually had a walk to Plymouth one day, you can take the cliff path to Mount Batten then get the foot ferry. A taxi back in the evening was very reasonable.
The house is comfy and cosy but
not too small. Having two bathrooms makes it ideal for two couples/families and a teenager. Said teenager was pleased that the Wi-fi is faster than at home lol. All the bedrooms are a decent size, even the single. The kitchen is really well equipped and contains everything we’ve needed to make proper meals.
The bonus is the garden which doesn’t appear on any of the website photos - it is a huge lawned area. It isn’t immediately obvious as you have to go through a courtyard and down a little path to get to it.
The cottage was well priced (given that it is high season) and we are very happy with our decision to stay here.
