Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Maypool Cottage is a substantial property located on the banks of the beautiful River Dart and on the edge of a large lake. The property is situated in an idyllic location, half a mile upstream from Dartmouth and within a stone's throw of the Greenway Estate, home of Agatha Christie, with the only traffic being the passing boats on the River Dart and the Steam Train that travels by, across the viaduct, on its way to Kingswear. The River Dart is undoubtedly one of Britain's most beautiful tidal estuaries, which springs from the heart of Dartmoor and flows south, through the charming and unspoilt South Hams region of Devon.
Upon arrival at Maypool Cottage, you will be greeted by the resident Estate Caretaker who will show you into the property. The cottage offers very spacious accommodation comprising of a large lounge with french doors opening into a sizeable conservatory running the length of the property, with further doors opening onto the garden, laid to lawn in front of the property leading to the lake. Also on the ground floor is an additional reception room offering an ideal place to sit, relax and read the latest novel whilst enjoying the tranquil environment, a large dining area leading to the kitchen with access out into the garden and the fourth double bedroom offering flexible sleeping arrangements. There is also a Utility Room to the rear, an ideal area for drying clothes, keeping muddy boots and for bringing dogs into the property .
A sweeping staircase leads to the first floor and the further three bedrooms. A commodious master suite takes centre stage comprising of a substantial sized bedroom with french doors leading out onto a balcony with a view over the River Dart, his and hers walk-in wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom. A double bedroom to the front also benefits from access out onto the balcony, with a further twin bedroom and the family bathroom to the rear.
The garden wraps around the front of the property, laid to lawn with a sunken BBQ area and edged by the large lake with the banks of the River Dart within touching distance. A footpath leads around the banks of the lake, taking in the breathtaking viaduct, built in 1860 by Isambard Kingdom Brunel as part of the former SDR/GWR railway from Newton Abbot to Kingswear, now taking the Steam Train to and from Kingswear to Paignton, leading back around to the banks of the river. Parking is available to the rear of the property.

"A Little Bit Of Heaven"
We stayed for a week in this lovely cottage (more a house ) the location is out of this world is very roomy and well laid out we spent our late afternoon/early evening down beside the river Dart drink… More
It sounds like you have had a great time in “your own bit of heaven”!
This property is laid out and furnished to a high standard with plenty to do inside and outside.
The lake at Maypool is the habitat for a vast assortment of wildlife; it is a fantastic attribute and attraction for all ages to enjoy.
Thank you again for staying with Blueriver Cottages and im sure you need no encouragement to re-visit Maypool Cottage in the future.
