“Ideal location for touring the South West, close to major roads but definitely rural location. We made a move to South Devon 18 years ago and have never regretted it. A part of the world that has stunningly beautiful coastline, iconic moorlands and a rich history stretching back 7000 years as witnessed by the long chambered tombs less than a mile from your Cottage.”
