Lovely modern converted barn

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a relaxing getaway with areas to walk our dogs and we found it in courage cottage. Overall it was good value for money and although it wasn't quite warm enough to use the pool or cold enough for the fire it was nice that this place had both. Maiden castle is only a short walk away as is martins town (20min walk via public footpaths). The local pub, Brewers arms is fantastic and a must visit if you like good home cooked pub food.
