This beautifully renovated cottage offers the most perfect rural luxury retreat. With stunning views across the glorious south Devon countryside and a secluded courtyard patio to enjoy them from, this gorgeous cottage is the ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The beauty is that even though you are spoilt by the most magical countryside location, only a short car journey finds you in the charming naval town of Dartmouth or the delightful village of Dittisham. Sandy and pebble beaches are not too far away either, Blackpool Sands and the historic Slapton Sands to name a couple.

Not forgetting that Dartmouth golf course runs adjacent to the cottage and the Higher Dinnicombe grounds, making this cottage a great choice for a luxury golfing holiday.

Returning home from a day of adventure is always a pleasure. This beautiful semi-detached cottage boasts a glorious wood-burner, under-floor heating and all the mod-cons you could wish for, making that cosy night in a real treat. Or perhaps a touch of dining al fresco on your private patio is just the ticket whilst watching the sun setting. When it's time for bed, the glorious and sumptuous bedrooms have been lovingly designed with the upmost style and comfort in mind.

Mornings are equally as catered for - from the Nespresso machine and complimentary welcome pack of breakfast essentials awaiting you on arrival, to the power showers in both bathrooms; perfect for waking you up and preparing you for the day ahead.

The drive down the winding track to this beautiful cottage is a treat in itself. Pass the farm animals and enjoy the stunning countryside views en route, which set the scene perfectly for what awaits. The super-friendly owners also live onsite and are on hand at any time to help make your holiday as special as possible. You may also be greeted by their four-legged friends as they go about their day on the farm.

Also available to book on site is the charming The Shepherds Rest (5620).

You could spend all day, every day, in this beautiful spot, however given that close by you have the charming village of Dittisham and are just a matter of miles from the extremely popular naval town of Dartmouth, a trip out to either one, or both, would be highly recommended. Dartmouth is a super popular spot, with numerous eateries, welcoming watering holes, secluded beaches and cafes, and a fabulous collection of shops and boutiques, Dartmouth offers a great day out for both young and old.

Or perhaps a day out at the beach is on the agenda? If so, the very popular beach of Blackpool Sands is only a short car drive away, with its cafe, beach shop and numerous activities such as kayaking and paddle boarding (all equipment including wetsuits can be hired on the beach), a great day out for all ages.

There is so much to do and see in and around this glorious part of the South Hams, from exploring the nearby villages and towns to the endless attractions and events, there is never a dull moment.

Another fabulous way to enjoy this very special area is to explore it via rail and sea. You can take the steam train along the estuary to Totnes and get a boat back to Dartmouth, completing the day with a glass of something tasty in one of the friendly Dartmouth establishments. Or perhaps catch the foot ferry which goes from the nearby village of Dittisham over to Greenway, Agatha Christie's former home, another great day out.

The opportunities and adventures which await you in and around this highly sought-after area are endless. From the beautiful rolling countryside to the breathtaking coast and all the delightful towns and villages in between, holidaying in glorious south Devon will certainly live up to expectations.

Not forgetting the beautiful cottage which awaits you at the end of the day. Following a spot of supper rustled up in the extremely well-equipped kitchen, sink into the super-comfy sofa whilst being warmed by the glowing wood-burner, then retire to the most inviting bedrooms and luxurious beds - sounds like the perfect way to end the day!

In a nutshell, everything you could possibly want from a holiday can be experienced during a stay at Higher Dinnicombe Cottage - a luxury cottage in a very special location.
