Bungalow | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Maidencombe Holiday Cottages presents Lily Cottage. This self-contained thatched bungalow is situated in the heart of rural Maidencombe. The beach, coastal and country walks are all on your doorstep, or you can just relax in the village pub the 'Thatched Tavern', or the award winning fine dining restaurant the 'Orestone Manor'.
The bungalow is newly refurbished to a high standard and has its own private entrance, two bedrooms - one with a double bed, one with a single bed, and a queen sized sofa bed in the lounge. It has dining space for four, a new modern kitchen/diner with all the mod-cons and a bathroom with shower and bath.
There is free-sat television, wifi, and a dvd player. The kitchen has a gas hob, oven, a large fridge and freezer, and a washing machine. The bathroom has a bath and an electric shower. A tumble dryer is available in a communal area and of course there are washing lines for sunny days.
Guests are welcome to use the gardens, and also have a dedicated parking space on the drive. The apartment has gas central heating and hot water that guests can control so you are always comfortable. Bedding and towels are provided free of charge.
The quaint village of Maidencombe has approximately 30 properties in the main village. It is peaceful and friendly. There is a beach café in the Summer months, and The Thatched Tavern which has an award winning garden probably serves some of the best beers in Devon. With two wood burning stoves to snuggle in front with a glass of wine winters evening can be so inviting.
Dartmoor is only a 30 minute drive away. Torquay and Teignmouth are the closest towns, and you will find plenty of top restaurants and eateries in both. Try a day out at Kent's Cavern the worlds famous prehistoric caves. Internationally famous Paignton Zoo or Splashdown Water Park, Paignton next to Torquay.
A car is by far the most convenient but buses and taxis are available.
This is a non-smoking thatched property, but smoking is allowed in the garden . We are all very pet friendly so you are welcome to bring your dog(s), provided you keep them under control and look after the apartment. The beach, pub and country walks are also dog friendly all year round.
If you need more accommodation please look at my other apartment - Penny Farthings - which sleeps four on the same estate.
