L119 - Wassail Cottage
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
1½ miles from Stoke Gabriel, a smart, stylish cottage, the middle one of three cleverly converted from a Grade II listed cider barn. A little brook runs along the back and the cottages have pretty views over neighbouring orchards (apples, geese, chickens, pheasants) - cider is still made and sold locally. Own neat gravelled garden at the front and small, private, partly covered, enclosed courtyard (table/chairs) at the back, ideal for outdoor dining with the sound of the brook over the wall. Inside, original beams and large circular stone pillars retained and complemented by fresh modern decor and oak floors downstairs. Hall (space for coats/boots, dogs); ground-floor loo (washbasin); spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric oven/gas hob) with comfy sofas, TV/DVD, iPod dock and door to sheltered rear courtyard. Stairs (stairgates) up to three bedrooms (carpeted), all with pretty orchard views – a double with en suite shower-room (suite), a neat single, and a twin with antique brass beds; shower-room (suite). An immaculate cottage in a lovely rural spot a few minutes' drive from beaches (2½ miles) and shops.

The West Country region
The South Hams: southernmost Devon; between the river Dart and river Tamar and south of Dartmoor, lush farmland and wooded river valleys turning to beautiful estuaries, its coast very beautiful and remarkably well preserved – sandy beaches and mighty cliffs between those estuaries, amazingly little sprawling modern ugliness. Inland too, away from main roads, it remains surprisingly peaceful.
Among special coastal places are Dartmouth; sheltered Blackpool Sands; Slapton's long curve of pebble beach and nature reserve lagoon; the cliffs about Start Point and Prawle Point, Bolt Head and Bolt Tail; East Portlemouth's beach and Salcombe's location and views; Thurlestone proving that family seaside places don't need to be brash; Bigbury's huge sands and the fun of getting to Burgh Island; waterside, oak-wood-sheltered Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers; many others, less easy of access, are for you to discover.
Kingsbridge and Totnes, both old, attractive and small, are the towns at the area's heart; Plymouth – the West Country's biggest town, with Naval base, ferry port, theatre, cinemas, history, Hoe (great views) and Barbican (where the life is) – is on the area's edge. Dartington Hall is an arts centre (films, plays, music, dance) with lovely gardens. Pleasure cruisers ply the Kingsbridge estuary and Dart and Tamar rivers.
Stoke Gabriel: pretty and beautifully situated village (three pubs, PO, shops, restaurant, medieval church) sloping to a little quay (good crabbing) and creek (boats) off the river Dart estuary. Sandy beaches at Torbay, and Totnes (attractive old town on the Dart), each 4 miles. Brixham, good golf (Churston) and car ferry to Dartmouth (town), 5 miles.

"Cosy and welcoming"
Even in the depths of winter this cottage was very warm, not just in temperature but also in the fact the owners had left a lot of their own books, magazines, toys, DVD's and games for guest use.… More
Thank you very much for your kind comments.
