The Old Dairy description

Boasting beautiful views over a sheltered valley in one of Devon’s most picturesque villages, this spacious holiday cottage, attached to the owner’s home, nestles on the banks of the River Torridge. The Old Dairy is a delightful property ideal for family and friends to escape and unwind at any time of the year. It lies just a short stroll away from the village inn which serves good food. The famous Tarka Trail is close by and offers good walking and cycling, with bike hire available locally.
