Property code: HOUSE

With an indoor pool, playground and games room on site, this spacious and attractive barn conversion is part of a small complex situated in a fabulous and picturesque rural location in South Devon.

This property is an impressive barn conversion, part of a cluster that’s perfectly situated between the towns of Totnes (4 miles) and Newton Abbot (5 miles). It sits amidst idyllic countryside and you could drive to visit Paignton (8 miles), Torquay (9 miles) or Brixham (10 miles). The cottage benefits from being both remotely peaceful yet part of a small community, which should appeal to friends and families who enjoy the camaraderie of other holiday makers.

 

The layout of the cottage lends itself to relaxed living, with a perfect mix of communal and private spaces, indoors and out. Where this cottage excels is the shared pool, games room, outdoor play area, and the planting that bring the buildings and people harmoniously together. Inside, the large lounge is luxurious and warm, with a wood burner and two sumptuous sofas into which you can sink at the end of a satisfying day. The cosy kitchen has a slate floor and cleverly placed utilities and storage. Upstairs, the king-size bedroom is enriched by a lovely en-suite bathroom and wide skylight. The bath in the twin bedroom is slightly smaller than full-size, so is ideal for children.

 

There’s so much to do for friends and families. Brixham is a gorgeous working fishing town, full of light, colour, traditional shops and daily catches that you’ll want to sample – especially the crab. Totnes has a castle, rare breeds sanctuary and many independent shops, pubs and restaurants. Take a boat tour in Teignmouth, walk the long, sandy beaches and enjoy fresh local food. Visit Paignton Zoo and ride the Dartmouth Steam Railway. Explore the English Riviera Geopark trails in Torbay (9 miles) and seek fossils on the beach. These memories will last a lifetime.

The swimming pool will open on a rota basis.  A daily 1 hour slot will be allocated to each cottage, details of which will be posted in the cottage

Fantastic cottage for a young family. Single track road to get to it is a bit longer and narrower than you'd want, but it was always quiet and meant you felt "away from it all". Very easy to use log fire, DVDs and Netflix included which meant the family room was great. Really well equipped kitchen - even melamine for young kids. Good size 1st bedroRead moreom. Second room a bit small, but worked for us. Had the swimming pool to ourselves every evening. Lovely play room and playground areas too. 5*s Hide

Lovely well-equipped cottage. Our kids loved the great selection of toys in the house, the playground, pool and games room. Quiet location down some very narrow roads (!) but close to plenty of beaches, attractions, pubs, etc.

We had a wonderful stay at House Martin Cottage, it was well equipped and felt like a home from home with toys, DVDs and books for the children. We all loved the shared pool, games room and play area and used these every day. The location was perfect with only a 5 minute drive to a main road and close to Paignton seafront and main roads to PlymouthRead more and Exeter. We hope to come back again. Thank you! Hide
