It was lovely meeting you all and we are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and found it relaxing. In particular it's good to hear that our gluten-free options suited you. We're lucky that our butcher makes gluten-free sausages! Hope to see you all again when you next visit the family. Kind regards, Angela and Steve.

All was perfect: location, room, fantastic breakfast and friendly host. Highly recommended for exploring Dartmoor national park but also for a break in a fantastic place to stay. Try banana's cake from breakfast buffet. Simply the best.
