Reviews From Guests
Miho and Peter made us very welcome indeed. They gave good advice on the local area suggesting suitable sights for us to visit. The cottage was well equipped with a range of breakfast items and toiletry essentials. We have a lovely time for our Easter break.
A perfect few days. Miho and Pete are fantastic hosts. We were all made to feel so welcome from the fresh cake on arrival though little treats every now and then - including fantastic sushi! Our boys loved running around the garden and filling up the bird feeders with Pete. With a Tor at your back and the pubs down the road its a perfect spot. Many thanks.
Lovely quaint cottage with beautiful views (especially from the bedroom!) of the moors. Walkable from Widecombe with it's couple of pubs and amazing walks. Wonderful personal touches from Miho made it extra special.
