Cottage / 3 bedrooms / sleeps 6

Key Info
  • Suitable for children over 5
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

The cottage is in the village of Frogmore, a pretty Devon village and one which has managed to hang on to its pub, the excellent Globe Inn just one minute's walk, its Post Office and the locally renowned Frogmore Bakery & General Stores. You can enjoy views of Frogmore Creek while you relax on the sunny terraced seating area a few yards up from the house.

The village is perfectly placed to reach the best sandy South Devon beaches in just a few minutes drive. Or you can drive Portlemouth and catch the ferry across to Salcombe or down the river to the family friendly South Sands beach. There are also some great walks from the door.

The cottage itself is cozy and well furnished with a wood burning stove in the sitting room and plenty of space for up to 6 guests.

Inside: Downstairs there is a well furnished and very snug sitting room with comfortable sofas, a television and a wood burning stove with plenty of logs to get you started.

There's also a large downstairs cloakroom with WC and basin. The large open plan kitchen is very well fitted out with all the expected mod cons. It has a large dining table that seats 6 comfortably and a separate round table with chairs for extra flexibility.

Beyond that is a second reception room with a sofa which can also be used as a childrens play room.

The upstairs bedrooms have view across to Frogmore Creek which is just off the Salcombe Estuary. Upstairs three are three double bedrooms are well-furnished with solid wood furniture. Bedroom 3 has two twin beds, Bedroom 2 has a double bed. The first two bedrooms share the family bathroom which has a shower cubicle, basin and loo. The spacious master bedroom is ensuite. The spacious ensuite bathroom has a separate shower and bath. There are some good pictures and nautical features like the light-house cord pulls in the bathrooms and the hand rope on the staircase.

Although the cottage is fairly close to the road all windows are double-glazed which keeps any traffic noise to a minimum.

Outside: The terrace garden is set up and away from the house (about 30 yards) and has great views of the South Hams landscape and the creek. The terrace is stone slabs with a glass topped table and chairs.

Jasmine Cottage also has two private parking spaces in a shared gated court yard.

Facilities and services

Bed linen, heating and electricity are included. A starter pack of logs is provided for the wood burning stove and additional logs can be purchased locally. The owner has also just installed electric storage heaters (included in the rentals) that keep the cottage snug during the winter.

Dishwasher, freezer, fridge, iron, kettle, toaster, TV, DVD Player and hairdryer. Free wifi is provided in the cottage.

Things to do nearby

The aforementioned beaches of course. And Salcombe Estuary is known for it's excellent canoeing and kayaking. It was recently featured on the BBC's Country File programme see Get Paddling on the Salcombe Estuary

You'll almost certainly find yourselves propping up the bar in the very nice Globe Inn 3 doors away and chatting to friendly landlords Mark and Lynda. There's also a pool table, sometimes live music (first Tuesday and third Thursday of each month and selected other times) and good food using local produce. Visit out-of-season and you can take part in the pub quiz too.

But also plenty of fine food to be sampled: the famous fish and chips at the Start Bay Inn and Fish & Chips at the Cod Father in Kingsbridge.
