Just the ticket

  • 5 of 5

Arranged this stay at short notice for an unusual amount of days (ten) and was no problem. The stay was for work in the Devon area and was nice to come back and relax, walk in the woods or just admire the lovely views. The place was clean and nicely decorated. Will stay again if working in the same area again.
