Cosy up on one of the comfy sofas and enjoy your favourite series on the Smart TV. The contemporary kitchen area is well-equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher and washing machine to create a romantic meal with the fire roaring in the background. Enjoy a lazy breakfast at the dining table whilst planning your day exploring ahead.

Amazing cottage! Beautiful location if you are looking for peace and quiet but not too far to drive to local town or further afield.

An immaculate little cottage, just right for 2 people (& their dog!). Well equipped and thought out, with lots of nice little touches. The owners were really friendly and helpful without being intrusive. A safe enclosed outdoor space for our dog, plus use of a nearby secure field to give him a daily run was really appreciated.

I booked for family members - and their dog. They loved the cottage, everything worked as it should, and their dog loved the the dedicated dog field. The location is ideal - 20 mins from the sea, 30 mins from the moors, 15 mins to shops etc - and with easy access to the A30. The cottage is well set up for winter and would be ideal for an out of seaRead moreson break. Hide

We loved our stay at this very well fitted out little cottage. Every detail was thought of which made our stay very comfortable and stress free.
