We say

Tucked away down a quiet lane in a traditional South Hams village, this boutique hotel is a converted Georgian house with contemporary interiors and an inventive mix of art and furniture. Our favourite feature is the spacious mature garden, which makes a lovely place to while away a few hours with a coffee or glass of wine when it's sunny. There’s also a cute little bar, and a book-filled sitting room with leather sofas, interesting chairs and a fireplace. Decent and delicious meals and sharing plates are cooked up by chef Ally, one of the three owners, using locally and seasonally sourced ingredients where possible – eating a deux in the snug by a roaring fire is particularly delightful if you’re lucky enough to be the only guests. There are just six rooms, all with home-made wooden beds and Frette linens; room 5 is the biggest and overlooks the garden, as does room 1, while we also like the secluded attic room 6. Be sure to ask for your complimentary access to the relaxing if small Dart Marina Spa, a 15-minute drive away in Dartmouth. The owners are pretty relaxed – if you want meals at particular times, just tell them in advance. It's dog-friendly too – owner Tamara has three of her own. A lovely choice for a romantic weekend away, or you can hire the whole place for a house party.
