Fantastic! Recommended ++++
I stayed for a week. The 2 bed apartment was very comfortable, clean and has everything you need. Lovely toiletries, plenty of them too. Alcohol at every entrance for hand cleaning and the covid restrictions well though out and implemented. Every member of the staff team were friendly and very helpful, going above and beyond. The food was all fresh and very tasty, I ate here each evening. Sunday lunch was also excellent, with perfect, enormous Yorkshire’s and offers of top ups of everything. Breakfast perfectly cooked to order. I would definitely recommend as a place to eat and stay - close to Exeter, quiet village, great for exploring Devon. Unusually for me, I couldn’t fault it :-) I will be back! Thank you Clare, Richard and staff!
