A beautiful well appointed home for a holiday with family and friends with lots of space to relax and enjoy the spectacular views over Burgh Island. Great walks over the hills and a good Gastrobus and pub walking distance if you don't want to cook. Breakfast in the local café overlooking the river was also very good. Would definitely stay again. ”
