The Potting Shed is small but perfectly formed for 1 or 2 people to stay in complete compact comfort. And it's dog-friendly! An entrance lobby for coats and boots leads into an open plan kitchen, living area and bedroom, plus a walk-in shower room. The village shop is 80m away and stocks everything you might need. Don't want to cook? The King's Arms pub is 50m away, a friendly local serving good pub food. Discounts for longer stays: 3 nights 5% and 7 nights 10%.

Another stay at the Potting Shed and as comfortable as before. Kept us cosy, warm and comfortable even with the very wet weather outside. Great location for exploring all areas of Devon. The Potting Shed is a delightful place to stay and relax. Many thanks.

Interaction with guests
I am around most of the time and happy to help with suggestions of places to visit or things to do, lend maps or walking books etc. While dogs cannot be left unattended in the Potting Shed, I may be able to 'dog sit' for you if you want to go off somewhere that isn't…
