“Another wonderful stay at our favourite holiday cottage. Thank you Lucy for a spotlessly clean house and all those lovely extras. Can’t wait for our summer break! Many Thanks”
Andrea, Chris, Nathaniel and Caleb. Sidmouth, Dorset. Apr 2016

“A very comfortable and relaxing cottage with lots of extra special touches. Probus has been ideal as we wanted to visit all of Cornwall. Can recommend the Hawkins Arms for great food and real ale, the mobile pizza van and the cafe at the end of the road for cakes! Would have no hesitation recommending this cottage. Thank you.”
