This charming retreat makes for the perfect adventurer’s bolthole. Whether seeking out new and exciting destinations by car, or exploring this idyllic area on foot, this property is ideally located; however I’m sure your four-legged friends will opt for nature and countryside walks!
Nestled in the grounds of an old water mill (which is the owners’ residence), this delightful cottage offers a very warm welcome. With a private patio-area and two glowing wood-burners this charming cottage is the perfect retreat, especially as it’s nestled on the edge of Dartmoor National Park which is a must-do day out.
Exploring the local towns and cities is exceptionally easy as you are only five minutes from the A38. A day out at the beach is also a fabulous option, as within a car drive you have a fantastic selection of south Devon’s sandy beaches at your disposal.
However, you could just spend your holiday relaxing and unwinding in this beautiful area.
The property is situated in a great location for seeing all that Devon has to offer. The cities of Exeter and Plymouth have an array of attractions and entertainment on offer, and the villages of Salcombe, Kingsbridge, Totnes and Dartmouth are also only a short car drive away.
The beauty of this property and its location is that an evening stroll along the river will take you to the local pub where a warm and friendly welcome awaits, what a lovely way to finish your day. Or a stroll in the opposite direction will find you at the exceptionally popular and renowned Glazebrook House hotel. Why not pack your glad rags and treat yourself to an exceptional dining experience in Glazebrook House’s restaurant, what a nice way to celebrate your very special holiday time.
Or perhaps sparking the barbecue up and enjoying a spot of dining al fresco is your preference. Your private and secluded patio-area is the perfect place to enjoy your surroundings.
This accommodating cottage is a great venue for both couples or families, and on request the owner is happy to make additional sleeping arrangements if you wish to bring an extra guest.
