If you imagine the perfect retreat in which to enjoy this gorgeous part of south Devon, you would probably be thinking of this attractive detached stone barn conversion. With oak flooring and red cedar fixtures, the cottage is surrounded by four acres of spectacular gardens, wildlife ponds and woodland which provide a very special setting to look out over. The Garden Cottage has its own south-facing patio, on two levels to catch the sun all day, with such special views you won’t want to move from this splendid spot.
Reversed accommodation takes advantage of the wonderful garden views, so the two bedrooms and bathroom are on the ground floor, while upstairs is an open plan living-room with a well-equipped kitchen and a wood-burner.
Nearby are Beesands beach and Slapton Ley, whilst the fantastic coastal path to Start Point, where the National Trust has marked several footpaths, is just ten minutes’ walk, although a steep climb back up. This is a particularly pretty part of Devon and for those inclement days, visits to Dartmouth or Kingsbridge are within easy reach. Or perhaps you may just prefer to sit out on the sunny terrace and enjoy the tranquillity of this lovely cottage.
