What a find! Oh if only we had been able to stay more than one night.
We had no trouble finding it even though it is in such a rural location. On arrival we received a very warm and friendly welcome from Debbie and Michael. Lovely people! The accommodation is in a stunning location with far-reaching views and so close to Dartmoor. I absolutely loved the decor throughout and could move in tomorrow. Gorgeous wood everywhere but nothing over-powering and sensitive attention to detail. We stayed in the pond-room which is huge, extremely well furnished and spotlessly clean with an amazing bathroom and walk in shower. The towels were luxurious with excellent quality complimentary hair and shower products. We've never had a hospitality tray with such a plentiful choice of refreshment . The bed was huge and extremely comfortable as were the pillows.
On arrival Debbie provided a pot of tea and home-made cake which was most welcome. We sat out on the decking over-looking the pond and our own garden space-perfect. We absolutely loved the garden which had obviously been painstakingly created into a natural meadow with pathways mown through it. Having decided to chill out and not go out for a meal, we sat outside til late at night soaking up the last of the sun, enjoying our own food and several bottles of wine. Breakfast was the best we have ever had with such variety and choice. Everything was top quality and beautifully prepared. We were extremely lucky to be there during one of the hottest spells so far and ate breakfast with the concertina windows wide open looking out over the extensive views. Absolutely perfect. We,too, will be back.
