Wonderful Break

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is in the most beautiful setting. Think of your dream UK destination and this is it. East Soar is a little piece of heaven. The cottage is very nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and extremely close to Salcombe beaches.

The family are wonderful hosts and the homemade cakes are amazing. We had a great family holiday - the kids were happy to simply stay on the farm. We had to force them to the beach. We will be definitely going back next year.
