Relaxing Devon

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has really nice accommodations and lovely views. The kitchen is well equipped and bedrooms are large and comfortable.

Just a short walk along the sea front to the local pub and a restaurant. Both are nice, but we did prefer the Pub.

Torcross is the perfect Devon get away. Lots of walks available, and close to larger harbour towns.
