Property code: WARRE

A beautifully positioned former hay loft, set on a working farm with countryside walks and bird reserves right on the doorstep

A quiet retreat for couples, close to the sea, and yet in a peaceful location away from the throngs of holidaymakers, Warren Roost is a former hayloft which has been converted to an open-plan studio-style property. Situated within a mile of the harbour village of Cockwood and 1.5 miles from the beach at Dawlish Warren on Devon’s south coast, you’re never far from a day at the beach.

A cosy holiday studio, guests approach Warren Roost via a set of external steps which lead onto a decked seating area and on to the front door of the single-storey property. With everything all together in one space, including the lounge, kitchen, dining area and bedroom, it is ideal for spending some much needed time together. The exposed stone walls and beamed ceiling ensure that the property retains the authentic feel of a farm cottage, whilst the TV/DVD ensures that guests can keep up with their favourite programmes and enjoy a late-night film snuggled up in bed. On summer evenings, sit out with drinks on the decking and enjoy views across the fields to the sea.

The position of this property allows guests to easily step out and walk to the village of Cockwood, where they can watch the comings and goings of boats on the Exe Estuary before retiring to one of the village’s two welcoming pubs. Or follow the footpath around the coast and cross the sand dunes at Dawlish Warren, home to a host of seabirds and coastal wildlife. 2.5 miles south of the property, meanwhile, the resort town of Dawlish has a golden sandy beach and a good choice of places to eat.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • Studio style apartment with open-plan kitchen/living room/dining/bedroom
  • 1 shower room with WC TV/DVD Electric oven, hob, fridge with ice-compartment, microwave/combi grill

Lovely warm welcome. A beautiful location with excellent views from the balcony of the river Exe and surrounding countryside, plus the trains occasionally going past. This makes it a joy to sit outside on the comfortable patio chairs. Well equipped if you want to cook. Well placed with many locations nearby including Dartmoor and the coast. BrixhamRead more and Bovey Tracey are particularly pretty. You can walk into Dawlish in under an hour. Anchor Inn pub Cockwood great for food and only a 10min walk. Hide

It was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard, it had everything you need. The bed was comfortable, as were the sofas.

A lovely cosy cottage for two to return to after a day sightseeing. We were made very welcome and loved the fantastic views of the fields and estuary. Spent time watching the birds on the feeders and enjoyed the beautiful gardens in this tranquil place. The devon tea on arrival was a nice touch too.
