Hair raising access
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 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.

The cottage is in a beautiful situation with a brilliant outlook from the all the windows. Had beautiful gardens and enjoyed having meals by the river. A very peaceful and tranquil holiday, brilliant! Thank you.
