The cottages have been fully renovated to provide guests with modern luxury — some of the best in Devon and Cornwall. Our beds and linen are of the highest quality and also used by some five star hotel groups. New kitchens, ensuite bathrooms, flooring and furniture have been included in neutral tones.
We have also taken a sustainable approach to the refurbishment. Lighting is LED throughout. Soft wool throws on the beds have been weaved in the UK using recycled products and 70 per cent of the kitchens come from sustainable sources. Many furnishings and accessories have been sourced directly through the producers, supporting small businesses.
The property has a smart TV with Freesat. Guests are welcome to log onto their Netflix accounts from the TV and also use our complimentary wi-fi which has been installed using a high speed fibre line.
