Situated on the outskirts of one of the most picturesque coastal towns in South Devon, this charming property promises a lavish retreat as well as a great base to explore what the county has to offer.
Set back in a quiet spot of the village of Cockington, this enchanting property is the ideal location for a romantic holiday by the sea. Just 2 miles from Torquay, part of the renowned English Riviera, it offers a tranquil haven to return to after a busy day exploring the area. Enjoy the last of the sun’s rays as the day draws to an end on your own private seating area to the front of the house and relax.
High ceilings and sash windows give a characterful nod to this property’s past life. On the lower floor, an iniviting open-plan living space welcomes you, with an inglenook fireplace and wood burner being the main feature. But venture upstairs and you will feel as though you have stepped into a hotel, with a sumptuous four-poster bed and contemporary bathroom. A feature fireplace and freestanding ornate wall mirror complete the look, while a dressing table is a perfect spot to get ready for an elegant meal out.
Drive along the winding country lanes that snake their way around the 450 acres of parkland surrounding Cockington. With a plethora of pretty villages scattered about as well as a huge chunk of beautiful South Devon coastline, you will fill your schedule in no time. Pop into Torquay, 2 miles from the property, to try one of the seafood restaurants and have a well-deserved laze on the beach. In the village, there are lots of interesting places to visit, including a manor house and village tea rooms, and the opportunity to see the area by horse and carriage is one you shouldn’t miss.
