    Not surprisingly it is humid inside, there is no mould evident, but the air quality is noticeable when you first go downstairs. The bedrooms are build on the lower floor, the sitting room/kitchen on the upper. The humidity level in the kids bunk room was astronomical, so worth a careful think if you have breathing problems or generally like a dry life. Nice if you are a an amphibian I suppose. Overall not bad but it is at the pricey end of the market and ought to match the price better. WiFi is very slow due to being at the end of a long wire to the exchange. OK for email, but streaming anything, forget it. Generally well equipped in the kitchen.

    Many thanks for your feedback in respect of your recent holiday. We will pass on your comments to the owner and ensure that the lower floor is satisfactorily aired to avoid any further issues of this nature. Having reviewed previous feedback over almost 15 years I can find very few similar issues having been raised at this property but I do apologise for any impact this had on your holiday. Unfortunately wireless broadband speed is variable, but generally slow, in this part of South Devon. However, we usually find that there is sufficient speed for live streaming so we will investigate this query when we in contact with the owners. If you would like to discuss any of the points raised in more detail please do not hesitate to contact me directly. Owner relations

About the location

BLACKAWTON

Halwell 1.5 miles; Totnes 6.5 miles.

Blackawton and the surrounding hamlets and villages are well placed for a tranquil South Devon break. In easy reach of Dartmouth and the beaches of Start Bay, the location offers a delightful balance between seclusion and convenience, with a wealth of picturesque walks, welcoming local pubs and more on your doorstep. In the centre of the village on Main Street, the 14th century Parish Church of St Michael completes the setting whole-heartedly. The George Inn is a family-run pub in the heart of the village. Situated across from the church, this dog-friendly inn backs onto some beautiful South Hams countryside, and there are outside tables where you can relax and take in the scenery. Nearby, Halwell is a small village in wooded farmland equidistant from the busy little town of Kingsbridge and popular Totnes - A charming Devon town with a bustling main street and a regular market, the area boasts regular outdoor markets on Fridays and Saturdays. During the main season, between May and September, there is an Elizabethan market each Tuesday morning.

Bunk beds suitable for children only.
