Key Info

  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

This 150 year old, grade II listed, Tudor style stone cottage is a real gem. It is a beautifully restored building of great character that has a wealth of history woven into its walls.

With its own private courtyard, an elevated lawn with old apple trees and blackberry briers, this is the perfect rural setting for a relaxed break.

Inside you will find a country style kitchen where you can prepare something special to serve in the rather grand dining room, which has an open fire place and reassuringly sturdy furniture. There is also a delightful lounge with bay window and fire place, where you can put your feet up after a day's exploration on the South West Coast Path.

The two bedrooms are of equally generous proportions and share a well appointed family bathroom across the landing. Enjoy the country views from the master bedroom where exposed beams and joinery add to the experience.

A short walk from the house is the excellent Churston Farm Shop plus a garden store and popular café. The ferry to Dartmouth is a five minute drive and this is one of the best locations possible for reaching all the attractions of Torbay, including the rustic charm of Brixham with its growing reputation as a gastro hub. The Churston Steam Railaway is a five minute walk, whilst Churston Golf Club is a mile away, with pitch and put and go karts.

For a relaxed evening out, take the 10 minute stroll to Churston Court, one of the area's most celebrated and ancient inns, and the perfect setting for a pint of local ale and a ploughman's! Another 5 minutes walk through the woods will lead you to Eldbery Cove.

The School Masters Cottage is annexed to The Old School House which is an entirely separate three bedroom cottage of the same style, quality and architectural merit. Both properties may be let together to provide larger families or groups of friends with four double and one twin rooms.

Please note this property can be booked with The Old School House to acommodate up to 10 guests. The two properties interconnect when let together

The West Country region

The warm climate and award-winning beaches enjoyed by South Devon have kept it a fashionable holiday resort for many generations. Torquay, Paignton and Brixham make up Torbay, one of the most popular areas for holidays in South Devon, and the area also includes the coastal towns of Dawlish, Teignmouth and Starcross. South Devon holiday cottages position their guests in some of the country's prettiest locations for a break with a continental feel. South Devon hosts dozens of festivals and regattas throughout the whole year. One of the world's oldest shipwrecks was found off South Devon's coast. Pete Goss built his Team Phillips catamaran in Totnes


A cosy coastal town with beautiful views and rambling countryside, Brixham can be found at the south end of the English Riviera. A busy fishing port with a fascinating history, including the inspiration for world famous hymns and being the landing place of William Prince of Orange, this picturesque corner of Devon is a delight to explore. From the bustling harbour filled with trawlers and yachts, to the tranquil nature reserve at Berry Head, there is plenty to enjoy during your stay.

Restaurants, pubs, bistros and cafes line the harbour along with colourful cottages, whilst families can enjoy the many attractions in the region. The coastline is interspersed with coves such as Churston, Fishcombe and St. Mary's Bay if you are looking for a quieter beach, while Breakwater beach has parking, a lifeguard in the summer and the Breakwater Bistro serving meals and takeaway food.
