Luton 1 mile. This attractive barn conversion is attached to the owner’s farmhouse on their 100 acre Devon farm in a rural village close to the beaches of Teignmouth and Shaldon. This is an ideal cottage for couples, friends or families, with woodland play areas with swings and a fort and a quiet countryside setting, and is set amongst green meadows. Guests are welcome to wander the farm to explore woodland paths, ripe apple orchards, friendly duck ponds and fields where hens, sheep and cows graze happily. This attractive cottage has a spacious, open plan living area, which looks out across an attractive courtyard through two large arched windows which give a sense of light and space ensuring that families can relax together, cook together and eat together at all times. The charming bedrooms have TVs and views across the fields and hills. There is a patio garden at the front of the cottage ideal for sun-worshipping and enjoying the countryside views. Just a mile down the road is the friendly village pub, The Elizabethan, which won a Taste of the West award in 2015 and has its very own Gelato ice cream maker! The cottage is just 3.5 miles from Teignmouth, a popular seaside town with plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as the beach, harbour and handsome pier. There are many family activities to enjoy as well, including an outdoor swimming pool, skatepark, adventure golf and two miles of sandy beaches. Wander along the splendid promenade to the working port on the riverside of town, where you will see plenty of ships coming and going in this fast-flowing estuary current. Looking across the River Teign you can see the charming small regency town of Shaldon, home to the Shaldon Wildlife Trust's breeding centre for rare mammals, along with the well-known beach at Ness Cove, reached through a genuine smugglers' tunnel. Down the coast is the English Riviera, with its micro-climate, tall palm trees, well laid-out municipal gardens and large promenade, lined with ice cream shops and cafes. Torquay is the birthplace of Agatha Christie and so there are plenty of historic reminders of the author, plus this seaside town also provided the inspiration for the classic British comedy Fawlty Towers. Paignton, which has a fabulous zoo and a steam train taking you to the River Dart, is also another day's outing. There’s plenty to see and do whilst staying at this charming cottage.
