We lovingly restored this 700 year old cottage a few years ago. It’s a short drive from the market town of Totnes, the towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth and the beautiful surfing beach in Bantham. The house feels homely and full of history. You’ll find everything you need from a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with bath and shower, a sitting room with wood burner and a cozy large bedroom to a lovely garden full of home grown veg depending on the season

The space
We bought this house in 2018 and have completely transformed it to a stunning holiday cottage and home. You enter the cottage into the handmade kitchen which is fully equipped with pots and pans, a gas cooker and electric oven and a washing machine. We will leave a welcome gift for you to enjoy.

The cozy living room is straight ahead where you will find a large sofa, a wood burning stove, a table for eating or working and a view over the church. On the way downstairs there's a full bathroom on your left, with a shower, bath, hand pottered sink and toilet. Your towels are included. Downstairs you will find the spacious bedroom with a large king sized bed, a wardrobe, drawers and a window with church views. The whole cottage is very cozy and beautifully restored. Outside there is a garden area with a table, chairs and decking area.

Some extras. There's a record player upstairs and a few records, we are adding to the collection! There's a box on the floor with books for you to take or swap if you want. There are plenty of interesting books in the cottage for you to enjoy. Also you can help yourselves to veg from the garden depending on the season and inside there are loads of kilner jars with everything from lentils, dried fruit and beans which you can help yourself to.

We include a guidebook which you can access when you have made your reservation. It includes some pubs and restaurants, walks and towns to visit.

Christmas and New Year's Eve.

For Christmas and New Year's Eve we have a small Christmas tree and tastefully decorate the cottage so that you don't need to worry about anything. We provide prosecco, Christmas table crackers and a seasonal food hamper (depending on your diet).
