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.

Nestling within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to days out. Outdoors enthusiasts can enjoy exploring the area on foot via the South West Coast Path, and beach goers will be spoilt for choice due to the array of beaches and pretty coves dotted around the immediate area. Salubrious Salcombe is also close by and here you can dine in one of the exclusive restaurants, and just slightly further afield discover Dartmouth, situated on the mouth of the River Dart and renowned for being one of South Devon’s most popular and enchanting towns. Other attractions and places of interest accessible from here include Dartmoor National Park, Woodlands family theme park, the historic naval city of Plymouth, and Paignton Zoo.

Step inside this stunning cottage and you will immediately find yourself in the delightfully cosy and welcoming lounge and this characterful room boasts comfortable sofas, a Smart TV, warming wood burner, and provides a lovely place to relax with a good book in the evening. Located adjacent you will also find a brilliantly useful utility room with lots of boot and coat storage alongside a washing machine and tumble dryer. Here is the perfect place to decant outdoor clothing after a day exploring, and the inclusion of a wet-room with shower and WC means that you can clean down with ease. The next room is the impressive open-plan kitchen/diner, here a relaxed dining area sits beside the perfectly appointed kitchen and this includes an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and also a dishwasher; and handily there is also a set of French doors leading to outside meaning that you can dine alfresco with ease during warm weather. Now take the stairs to the first floor and on to the light and airy landing, and discover the pretty bedrooms, all lovingly presenting in a fresh contemporary country style. These include a double, a lovely triple room offering three single beds, and finally a cosy single bedroom. Located on the same floor there is also a bathroom with a bath, separate shower and WC. Heading up a set of steep steps leading from the single bedroom you will then discover a delightful snug located in the attic space and this includes a selection of cushions arranged around a further Smart TV and offers a lovely hideout for older children.

Venturing outside further highlights await in the shape of a fabulous enclosed cottage garden with an area of lawn, patio, garden furniture and also a charcoal BBQ.

Lovely cottage in a lovely location. Cottage very bright and airy but still cosy and charming. We were able to sit outside on the patio sunspot in October which a bonus! Quiet village, not on the coast but within a good dog walking distance. Lots of local walks and beaches directly on foot and a drive away.

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.
