Formerly a granary, Yeoman’s Cottage, attached on one side of a lovely thatched Devon longhouse, is situated at the end of a no-through road at the head of a 12 acre beautiful, hidden valley edged with trees and where a former cider orchard with ornamental trees slopes down to two ponds naturally fed by local springs. The area is a natural habitat for ducks, moorhens, herons and a Preservation Area for the Cirl Bunting. In the distance the heights of Salcombe can be seen, but all that can be heard is the sound of birdsong, a magical and very peaceful spot. The cottage has been well restored, is centrally heated, comfortably furnished with lovely views from the main rooms and is a true hideaway in this secluded hollow, ideal for a small family or couples who want to get away from it all. The sea at North Sands and South Sands is only a mile by footpath and Salcombe a mile further. Walking is spectacular whatever the season, over cliffs, headlands and woodland owned by the National Trust. A welcoming bottle of wine is provided on arrival.
Please note: This property is for a maximum of 3 people (including infants).
Set within the popular South Hams district of South Devon, Kingsbridge is a market town sitting on the Salcombe estuary surrounded by beautiful countryside. Located in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is one of the most popular areas for visitors as it offers so much. The estuary provides plenty of options to get on the water whether fancy sailing, kayaking or stand up paddleboarding. If you are just looking for a day on the beach then Salcombe, East Portlemouth, Blackpool Sands or the two beaches at Thurlestone will all fit the bill. Walkers have a choice of walking a section of the South West Coast Path or heading inland and enjoying the many trails in the AONB. Plenty of options when wanting to eat out and some excellent towns and villages to explore nearby including Salcombe, Beesands, Dartmouth and Bigbury-on-Sea.
