This is a beautiful and comfortable cottage in a really beautiful and quiet setting with plenty of walks to choose from. Just off the edge of Dartmoor a good location as a centre for visiting sites of Devon and Cornwall.

Fantastic cottage and location. We usually don't consider a return visit, but this cottage was a definite contender for a return trip. Definitely recommended.

Beautiful spot with great walks from the door. Lovely cottage and wood-burning stove with plenty of wood! Loved the woods and river and the neighbours were helpful - daffodils, primroses and wood anemones everywhere, lots of wild garlic to eat!

Very comfortable cottage in a beautiful location. The views over the Tamar were unforgettable. A great location for exploring east Cornwall as well as Dartmoor.

Lovely, well equipped cottage in amazing location with wonderful views over the river into Cornwall. Especially enjoyed the complementary wine on the riverside deck watching the swan and baby cygnets. Beware the tortuous lane and sleeper bridge to the cottage, especially if you have a large car!

I usually begin reviews with the positives but I'm going to break with tradition here, because the major issue with this cottage is the access. The cottage is reached down a mile long lane which is barely a car's width in some places, although there are some small passing places. The worst bit, though is when you have almost reached the parking area. Before this is a narrow and rather rickety 'sleeper' bridge, with a sharp right turn off it. Local people just shrugged their shoulders when we mentioned we found the access difficult, but it was quite telling that many had cars with a few scrapes and dents. We were told, with some glee, that it wasn't unknown for people to come off the bridge and end up in the stream beneath. We didn't actually think this was too funny. The cottage itself is OK. It's an ex miner's cottage so is small and atmospheric. There is a washing machine but no dishwasher, and no WiFi access. The woodburning stove is a welcome feature.The beds are comfortable. The shower is rather feeble, and the drainage from it is not good.The garden is delightful and leads down to the river Tamar. One review I read said there was a pub/restaurant about a mile away, which may be so, but meant negotiating the bridge and lane again, so we gave this a miss. You can access the pub on foot but it's a steep upward climb on a stony track. '

This was a lovely cosy cottage, in a surprisingly remote situation. The facilities were good and it was warm during cold weather. The best bits were the numerous walks from the door through woods and fields and along the river (we didn't use our car), and the little train over the river with great walks the other side. Everyone was helpful. The worst bit was the extremely narrow, rough and steep access road!
