  • Mrs Bloy

    “Such a beautiful cottage and garden in an idyllic setting.”

    Thanks to Wendy and her attention to detail everything you could possibly need whilst away, was to hand. We could have happily moved in! The picturesque South Zeal village hosted two pubs within a short walk and plenty of dog walks around the Dartmoor area. The A30 is a 10 minute drive making this central spot perfect for exploring Devon and Cornwall.
