Eeyore's Cottage, once owned by Christopher Robin Milne, the son of Winnie the Pooh author A A Milne, has been beautifully restored. Found in the hamlet of Embridge, it is a 15 minute walk to the glorious beach at Blackpool Sands and a short drive from Dartmouth. Several original features have been retained in this delightful and stylish semi-detached cottage, including winding stairs with a low lintel up to the top floor. All mod-cons have been included, there is under-floor heating in the kitchen and bathrooms, a wood-burner in the sitting-area, WiFi, three bedrooms and three shower/bathrooms. The raised deck and garden behind the cottage is the ideal spot to relax, making this perfect for a family or a group of friends.

To follow on in the Winnie the Pooh theme, there is a little bridge over a stream just down the lane where children will no doubt enjoy hours of playing pooh sticks. And this is certainly not a case of 'nobody cares' as Eeyore would say. The owners have lovingly refurbished the cottage from top to bottom. Deep sofas and a roaring wood-burner to gather around on a cool evening, high-end appliances in the kitchen, contemporary shower/bathrooms, gorgeous bedding – we could go on and on. And the area itself is lovely, so quiet and peaceful with only a few neighbours, flower-filled hedges along the lane and some great walks on the doorstep. Dartmouth is justly renowned for its eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, river trips and more. Agatha Christie's old home at Greenway is well worth a trip, as are river trips to Totnes, coming back on the steam railway. Blackpool Sands is your nearest child-friendly beach, with the Venus Beach Cafe offering delicious cooked breakfasts, lunches and dinners and enjoying a good reputation locally. So you have no excuse, dig out the old children's books 'Now We Are Six' and 'The House at Pooh Corner' to read to the kids or yourselves, load up the car with buckets and spades, walking shoes and all the paraphernalia for a family holiday – you will not be disappointed.
