“Thank you Nigel and Carina. We have had the most relaxing wonderful stay. Staying here is so peaceful, very good for body, mind and soul. Jacob and Lola have thoroughly enjoyed the garden in all its glory. Jake loves to explore even though it is hard to get around these days on his old legs. We were most grateful for the info you gave us on places of interest. We found the most lovely restaurant called "Shoals" at Berryhead, Brixham. The seafood was amazing and they welcome dogs outside, which over looks a beautiful seawater swimming pool which on turn looks out to sea, exquisite! Had great food at the Ley Arms, Kenn who are also very welcoming to dogs. We are very upset to be going home. Thank you again for your hospitality. Hopefully see you again. ”
