  • Mr Cooper

    “Angela, our host, was most relaxed, friendly and helpful.”


    The only problem we had was with the wifi which didn't work throughout our visit, although Angela offered for us to use her office if we needed it. Also it provided a good excuse to climb the hill to get a phone signal and enjoy the stunning views to the south. The pool area was secluded and the water warm, and the surrounding woodland and tracks were enchanting. Swallows, house martins, swifts and bats in abundance. Nice friendly pub with decent beer at The Globe in Sampford Peverell, which also allow dogs in covered area outside.
