A wonderful place - A wonderful stay
Kirsten and Trevor made us feel like personal guests in their own home - Beautiful interior decor with the personal touch of Kirsten's wonderful paintings around the house. We were greeted with a delicious cream tea and the generous breakfast featuring local ingredients was also wonderful. Trevor was a mine of local information suggesting places for us to walk and visit including the local sculpture park which we loved. I am GF they made sure I had the GF equivalent of all that they had to offer which was so thoughtful. Their attention to detail was second to none - This was the favorite of all the lovely places we stayed on our week long trip around Devon and Cornwall. We will be back!
