With an enclosed garden space, it’s perfect for the dog to have a run around, whilst you make use of the BBQ and have a relax in the hot tub.
If cooking up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen isn’t on the menu, then head off to the nearby market town of Honiton, which has plenty of cafe’s and friendly pubs where you can grab a bite to eat.
