"A comfortable and spacious cottage- 1st class, will come again for sure!"
What a beautiful Devon cottage - you really have made the place a pleasure to stay in. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay with our friends from Nice, France! The cottage really is a great example of a "typical" cottage with everything we could have wanted or needed.
Thanks again for a great week. Our second stay at Higher Collaton as good as our first stay. Still has the magic! Looking forward to returning for a third stay!
