About Self-Catering Holidays in Buck's Cross

 
As you approach Bucks Cross, notice the rise and fall of the verdure in this ripple of Devonshire countryside. Pass St Anne’s church to your left with its beautiful, old stone exterior and eighteenth century stained glass. Buck Woods are situated directly to your right and then you come to the end of the road. Now you are on foot for the rest of the journey.  Listen to the sound from the invisible stream. It’s hiding somewhere -you just need to find it! Note the mythic stance of the oak and elm trees, stood poised and proud in their prodigy of shade and the violets, hiding shyly away in the grass. Follow the golden primroses as they lead you into the village, towards your holiday cottage.
