  • Lovingly fitted and furnished to include an array of creature comforts alongside traditional features
  • Perfectly placed for exploring the whole of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Property code: 80623

This beautiful cottage nestles in a quiet village settling just one mile from the coast, boasts contemporary luxuries alongside period charm, and provides a comfortable base for families and couples alike.

This five-star luxury property with an enclosed garden lies within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s ideal for families who enjoy coastal views, walking trails and family-friendly attractions. You’re within half a mile of a 16th-century village pub, a mile from the beach; and a short drive from the shops, shore, and amenities of popular Bigbury-on-Sea (4.5 miles). The spectacular surroundings of Dartmoor National Park (12.5 miles) and the vibrant port city of Plymouth (13.5 miles) are also within reach.

Step inside this historic country-style cottage which sleeps six guests plus two dogs in the most stylish of surroundings. Sink into cosy sofas and watch films on the Smart TV, or enjoy family games by the warmth of the toasty wood burner. Rustle up delicious meals featuring local ingredients in the well-equipped kitchen. Dine alfresco in the enclosed cottage garden where you can breathe in the fresh air and floral aroma as you catch up on the day. You’ll find the pretty bedrooms upstairs, and there’s a TV snug room in the loft, accessed by cottage-style stairs from the single bedroom, great for older children looking for their own space to relax.

Join the South West Coast Path which stretches from Somerset to Dorset. The South Devon coastline offers spectacular views from towering clifftop trails, and pretty coves to discover along its shores. Venture north on Devon’s ‘coast-to-coast’ path from Wembury (17.5 miles), to Lynmouth in North Devon. Tee off on the fairways of Bigbury golf club (3 miles). Or enjoy family-friendly fun at Woodlands Family Theme Park (14 miles), where children can meet meerkats at the petting zoo farm, and hop on thrilling funfair rides.

A really cosy cottage...a bit remote but we enjoyed that. Lovely walks and a friendly village pub offering food a short stroll away. 7 year old Grandson enjoyed the snug in the cottage. A sunny garden to sit in and enjoy. Everything we needed and dreamy beds. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

Amazing cottage, situation comfort, equipment...everything has been carefully thought out to provide the most luxurious stay.

Lovely cottage set in quiet village, great place to forget your troubles. Cottage layout is perfect, after a day at the beach enter through utility and hit the wet room to wash away the day's sand. The kitchen is newly furbished with everything you need! Best bit is the "snug" in the attic, great hideaway for kids. Coastal path is easily accessibleRead more with beautiful views, for a day at the beach better to take car if you have young children. Beautiful part of Devon! Hide

Lovely, lovely cottage in a really gorgeous area. Maybe a bit remote for those wanting to be close to amenities but we loved it, the peace and tranquility was a real tonic. Area is surrounded by lots of beaches and great walking trails.
