Overlooking one of the most picturesque seaside towns in South Devon, this charming retreat promises a fantastic getaway as well as a great base to explore Devon and Cornwall.

Paignton is one of the brightest jewels in the English Riviera’s crown, as you arrive in the seaside resort, you are met with the welcoming sight of its long stretch of beautiful and easily accessible beachfront, promenade, traditional pier, colourful beach huts and green. Once you arrive, you don't have to go far, as the seaside town offers an array of shops, cafes and restaurants within easy reach of the sea front. Also on offer in the area is the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway which offers trips from the town. For those looking for a more peaceful day out why not visit Greenway, Agatha Christie’s former house and enjoy a cream tea in the lovely gardens.

This delightful seaside retreat is the perfect getaway, situated within the owners’ calm grounds where privacy is assured. On entering the property, the entrance hall is the perfect place to wipe muddy paws and leave your walking boots behind. Heading on into the property, enter into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area. Relax in the lounge with sofa, chair, Smart TV and wood burner effect electric fire, patio doors offer views out over the garden and open out onto the decked area with hot tub. The kitchen is well-equipped with electric oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, microwave and coffee machine. There is also a table and chairs for two. Heading on upstairs to the light and airy, delightful king-size bedroom with en-suite shower room with WC (head space is restricted due to sloping ceilings within the bedroom and shower room and is not suitable for guests over 6ft).

Heading outside, sit and relax on the balcony, enjoy the delightful sea views from the comfort of the garden furniture, or enjoy a soak in the private hot tub. You will no doubt find it difficult to leave this relaxed environment. There is off-road parking for one car.

Lovely cottage with lovely views overlooking the sea. The owners are very helpful and friendly. The cottage comes well equipped with all the basic facilities needed, however you just need to be careful when going upstairs as there are low ceilings.

Helpful, friendly, hosts. Peaceful location, good base to get around East Devon. Lovely hot tub. Kitchen and lounge well appointed. The bed was a little small for us. Be aware of limited headroom upstairs. Overall an enjoyable holiday.

The owners were both lovely & offered a very warm welcome. In such a peaceful setting and the views were amazing. Sunken hot tub was great & the patio table / chairs were great for breakfast each morning. Kitchen was well equipped with the added bonus of a dishwasher & washer. Couple of throws to add comfort made it a very relaxing retreat.
