Pheasants Hide is one of eight luxurious 4 STAR self-catering cottages, situated in a courtyard, set high up on a hill-top boasting one of the most impressive far reaching views in the area. The landscape unfolding in front of you takes in the rolling undulating hills of the South Hams with the majestic heights of Dartmoor and her tors balanced in the distance. Watching the sunset over this glorious scene literally takes your breath away!

Although set in a beautiful rural location, a heavenly oasis of 42 acres of woodland and pasture, reached by a half mile private track, local amenities are only 2 miles away and a 15th Century Old Devon Longhouse serving good pub food is just 0.5 miles away - a few minutes walk away from the members only lesiure centre featuring indoor heated swimming pool, learner pool, sauna, steam room and gym. All of our guests have some complimentary passes for the pool & gym to use throughout their stay.

Guests are free to roam over the land and through the woods, taking in the abundance of wildlife - buzzards, herons, mallards and the odd cormorant are daily visitors. For dusk walkers, sightings of the resident badgers, foxes and rabbits are not uncommon.

A superb base for exploring Torbay and the South Hams. Luxury 4 STAR accommodation at its best, a very well equipped kitchen, very comfortable and lovely interior with those well thought out touches that make all the difference.

Further details indoors

Pheasants Hide has newly been renovated to an exceptionally high standard. Subtle tones used throughout the styling of the cottage sympathetic to the autumn hues of a literally a cock pheasants plumage, this cottage retains some of the farmhouse structure - two foot stone walls and beams. Comfortable and cosy this cottage has a fully equipped kitchen with all the mod cons required to cook up a gourmet meal for two! A spacious double bedroom furnished with replica rustic furniture and a contemporary shower room all adds to the unique charm of this hideaway!

With the introduction of a contemporary new sofa bed in the lounge - this much sought after cottage can now sleep a family of four. For only a £30 additional fee on the weekly tariff, Pheasants Hide offers luxury accommodation at an affordable price.

Further details outdoors

The garden field has three brick built BBQs and ample seating for alfresco eating, and surprisingly for such a rural location - Pizza, Indian and Chinese can be ordered in! Yes they all deliver to your cottage door!

The property also boasts six quality coarse fishing lakes for guests to fish at their leisure.

The West Country region

South Devon is a popular holiday destination, boasting some of the highest temperatures during the summer months in England. Paignton is part of an area encompassing Torquay and Brixham - a beautiful unspoilt fishing harbour town, commonly known as the English Rivera. Oldway Mansion in the heart of Paignton was once the home of the Singer family, founders of the famous Sewing Machine. Agatha Christie was born and bred in Torquay, The Princess Theatre on the sea front often shows productions written by this legend.

Three miles from Pheasants Hide is the lovely town of Totnes which has a fabulous market every Friday in the heart of the town - plenty of local produce, a lot of organic, very original foods and some marvellous interesting artefacts! During the summer months, Elizabethan dress is almost compulsory with the locals going about their everyday business on a Tuesday. The town is definitely worth a visit - plenty of great eating places and some great Tea rooms with irresistible home made cakes!

The English Riviera boasts 22 miles of coastal paths and countless sandy beaches, the nearest is Goodrington Sands but Blackpool Sands is definitely worth a visit - you may have to pay to park in the car park but once it's full no one else is allowed onto this golden beach, therefore never crowded and just fabulous really clean facilities.

During the months of June, July and August there are countless fetes, fairs, festivals, carnivals - literally something happening every week.

"Peace and quiet in a delightful location."

Beautiful accommodation in a delightful location - peace and quiet with glorious countyside all around but only a short car journey to the coast for cliff walks and the beach. Well styled, maintained and spotlessly clean cottage with views accross the valley and the fish ponds. The fresh flowers and muffins on arrival were a nice touch and Richard was friendly, welcoming and very helpful. We will certainly book again - possibly for more than just a long weekend.

Sorry, forgot to thank you for your lovely review,it really is a nice place isn't it, have a great Christmas and hope to see you again soon
