Tucked away in the beautiful hamlet of Dunstone in the glorious South Hams you will discover Holly Cottage, a gorgeous getaway dating back to the mid-18th Century. The Grade II Listed thatched cottage retains much of its character and charm throughout and has been lovingly styled and furnished to create a warm welcome, which instantly allows you to relax and enjoy a slower pace of life. Nestled in a wonderful countryside location, the lovely village of Yealmpton is just a few miles away, where you will find the Rose and Crown pub and of course the village shop for holiday essentials.
Step into the semi-detached cottage through the cute stable-door into the spacious and perfectly positioned sitting-room which features stylish antique furniture, luxurious furnishings and a toasty wood-burner set in a grand inglenook granite fireplace. Just the thing for those chillier days! Step up into the light contemporary kitchen and dining space which boasts quartz worktops, integrated appliances and the joy of under-floor heating. The double doors open out to the glorious garden with lovely patio furniture for relaxing with a good book in the sunshine. The shower-room sits to the side of the kitchen, with a fabulous large shower.
Upstairs, you will find the three beautifully styled bedrooms where you can sink into the comfortable beds at the end of the day and wake each morning listening to the soothing sound of bird song. Bliss! Bedroom one is a very pretty single room with views out to the front of the cottage and bedroom two offers a tranquil, relaxing room with a sumptuous bed and more pretty countryside views. Wander up several steps to discover gorgeous bedroom three at the back of the house. The charming family bathroom with sloping ceilings is also located on this landing and will delight the bath lover of the family, with a luxurious stylish free-standing bath for soaking in after a day of exploring Devon!
Minutes away from Holly Cottage are many delightful beaches, from Mothercombe to Bigbury-on-Sea to name but a few. At any time of year many beaches remain deserted and unspoilt, ideal for peaceful family days out. You can also enjoy Saltram House, a huge Georgian period National Trust property and once the largest country estate in Devon. On your doorstep there are miles and miles of country trails along the River Erme, as well as the South West Coast Path and its beautiful scenery which is quite literally breathtaking!
When it comes to the perfect cottage and location, Holly Cottage certainly delivers and you will want to return year after year. The idyllic riverside villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo are considered two of the most attractive and unspoilt villages in south Devon and these are just a few miles away. Sitting on opposite sides of the River Yealm, you really do feel the slower pace of life and what better way to enjoy village life than sampling a gin at one of the locally renowned pubs!
