Rose Cottage at Cotmore Farm
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Get away from it all and pamper yourself in our two-hundred year-old, stone-built stable block, converted in 2012 into a bijou two-room cottage, perfect for couples of all ages, and easily able to accommodate a baby or toddler in a cot. Luxuriously kitted out with heated slate floors, marble bathroom with power shower, solid oak furniture, easy-to-use woodburner, fully-equipped kitchen, and snug leather sofa, Rose Cottage provides the perfect refuge and haven at the end of a hard day enjoying all that the South Devon coast has to offer.
Tucked away in a sheltered south-facing valley, five miles from Kingsbridge, and 40 minutes drive from both Dartmoor and the fascinating medieval town of Totnes, Rose Cottage offers easy and direct access to the superb beaches of Start Bay – Beesands, Slapton, Blackpool Sands and Hallsands – as well as the many sandy coves between Start Point and East Portlemouth, and of course the renowned South Devon Coast Path, making it a paradise for walkers (and their dogs!), birdwatchers, stargazers and watersports fanatics, as well as those who love a traditional seaside holiday.
Couples with a toddler are welcome to use our cot and highchair at no extra cost. We welcome well behaved pets at an additional charge of £25 per week.

Rose Cottage at Cotmore Farm oozes luxury everywhere you look: stylish and contemporary oak furniture, heated slate floors, a fully equipped oak kitchen and a marble tiled shower room are complemented by original art on every wall. Three sets of French doors to the garden ensure the cottage is filled with light, whatever the weather. A comfy leather sofa, HD TV with satellite, and a woodburner for colder evenings add the final, pampering touches.
|Further details outdoors|
Rose Cottage is located at the end of the farm courtyard. Its enclosed private garden has a flagged and gravelled patio area with outdoor dining facilities and barbecue, a terrace planted with mature trees, climbing shrubs and groundcover, and a well stocked herb garden for guests’ use. A gate at the end of the garden opens onto our own pasture, with views to the sea a mile away, and gives direct access through the farm fields to a network of quiet lanes, footpaths, bridleways, and the superb South Devon Coast Path.

The West Country region
The South Hams, bordered by Plymouth to the West, Dartmoor to the North, and Torbay to the East, boasts some of the most unspoilt coastline on the south English coast: 60 miles of bays and coves, including the promontories of Start Point and Bolt Head. The entire coast, along with the lower Avon and Dart valleys, forms most of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area benefits from a very mild climate - winters are warm and wet, while spring and autumn are often glorious - making it a year-round destination. Summertime is when things get very exciting in South Devon: the TQ7 postcode in particular is renowned among installers of solar pv as one of the sunniest places in the UK, and in most years between June and September, every day is beach day. For those seeking more cerebral pleasures, the great Elizabethan maritime city of Plymouth, and the ancient Roman walled city of Exeter provide contrasting attractions: each has its complement of historic sites, stately homes, grand gardens and museums to visit. They also offer excellent shopping, elegant dining, a range of nightlife and award winning theatre at the Theatre Royal and the Northcott respectively.
Many miles of safe, award-winning beaches offer swimming, rockpooling, and sunbathing opportunities, while watersports - particularly surfing, windsurfing, sailing, waterskiing and parasailing - are popular and widely available. There are facilities for golf, sailing, horseriding, tennis, and river- and sea fishing all within 30 minutes' drive of the property.
Walkers and their dogs will appreciate the attractions of miles of quiet lanes, footpaths, bridleways, and the renowned South Devon Coast Path, while stargazers will glory in the complete absence of artificial light, which makes the Milky Way regularly visible with the naked eye. The area is hugely popular with birdwatchers: Start Point is on a major migration route, Slapton Ley is an overwintering spot for rare overseas visitors, and the Cirl Bunting can be spotted at one or two favoured locations.
South Devon is at the cutting edge of the Good Food revolution in the UK and there are superb eateries to be found in every town and village, with pub fare that would put many restaurants to shame. Fish and seafood are a speciality in the many fishing villages along the coast, and there are a number of establishments where you can pick your choice from the slab or tank and have it prepared, cooked and served to your table while you wait.
