What a beautiful cottage and place to stay! In a lovely wee village just a stone's throw from the town of Tavistock. The property consisted of three bedrooms, two en-suite and a separate bath/shower/toilet for the third room. The house is upside down, very quirky, with the bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs and an open-plan living room/kitchen upstairs. Very tastefully decorated, warm and very comfortable. Highly recommended! The only downside is that it is located in a black spot with no WiFi or telephone signal, but a visit to the wee pub less than a mile away helped there, especially having three kids of a certain age with us!
