A loose bannister could mean that you need an accident solicitor in Drewsteignton
Drewsteignton is a must for a holiday. The picturesque village sits in the Teign valley. It is 13 miles west of Exeter and 9 miles south east of Okehampton. Basically, it lies on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. The village square is where it’s all happening. There is even a visitors’ car park.
Fingle Bridge beside the river Teignton is a local beauty spot and within walking distance of the village. Castle Drogo sits on the edge of the village and gets its fame for being the last castle to be built in England. It is set above Teign Gorge and offers breath taking views of the countryside which is all around.
It’s a good idea to rent a holiday cottage when visiting places like Drewsteignton so that you can take in the different restaurants and pubs but also have the choice of eating in if you wish to on the odd occasion.
Choosing a holiday cottage has never been more exciting
Choosing a holiday cottage is always an exciting experience and there is so much on offer, it is a wonder that we ever actually manage to get away. If it is the first time you have rented a holiday cottage you need to look at the literature carefully. For instance: if a bathroom is hardly mentioned in the text and then there are no photographs, ask yourself what the owner might be hiding. You could end up under a shower which is a dribble and tied up by a bit of string.
When you rent a holiday cottage, the owner has a duty to make sure that the cottage is safe for you to live in for the period which you have rented it for. It is all very well having a thatched cottage which could be put on chocolate box lid. However, if you are going down the stairs and the bannister comes away in your hands and you crash down ending in a heap at the bottom – it won’t just be your holiday which will be ruined.
