We were thoroughly spoiled by our short stay (4 days) in Wheel Farm Cottages. The standard of the cottage was excellent. We stayed in one that sleeps two, but the standard of fittings and equipment was the same for all cottages (sleeping from 2 to 8 persons). The standard of cleanliness of the cottage, and the linen and towels was faultless. The site staff were welcoming, and each cottage is well stocked with walk guides cycling guides, local guidebooks, where to eat guides, etc, etc.
Our only comment that was that were in Lower Mill Cottage. The footfalls of the people upstairs (Upper Mill Cottage) was an occasional annoyance. There is a duplex cottage (Hayloft) which does not have this small problem.
The location is in the heart of the countryside and walking from the site is not recommended (narrow Devon roads where motorists do not look out for pedestrians), but a short car ride away is the South West Coastal path and other gloriously scenic places to walk or simply visit.
