L278 - Stert Mill
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
on a quiet leafy lane 1� miles from Diptford, a south-facing stone-built cottage surrounded by 2 acres of the friendly owners� woodland (circular walk for you to enjoy). The pretty stream that once fed this former mill trickles soothingly past their linked but private modern extension and continues past outside your own enclosed sunny garden (gravelled) with table/chairs, barbecue. Across the lane, a grassy area with picnic bench beside the stream (unfenced here, care needed) for you to relax in this haven of peace, nature and birdsong. Inside, simple and stylish furnishings, white cob walls and pine floorboards (rugs) throughout. Six slate steps up to front door to hall; good-sized living room (TV/DVD) with open fire and dining room with woodburner (logs provided) and fridge-freezer. Neat slate-floored kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave). Open-tread stairs (stairgates) to first-floor landing (quiet reading area with armchair and balustrade) and three bedrooms � two double (one with 5� bed) and a twin (footboards), all with leafy views and sounds of the stream. Smart bathroom (suite plus hand-shower) and shower-room (suite). Spring water. A peaceful base near beautiful beaches, interesting towns and villages and Dartmoor.

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.
Diptford: village in lush South Hams farmland above the River Avon valley (fishing). Totnes (town), 5 miles; Dartington Hall (arts centre, craft shop), 7; Kingsbridge, 8. The sea (beaches) at Blackpool Sands, Bigbury-on-Sea or Thurlestone, about 11 miles; Dartmouth (town), 12; Dartmoor, 5. Very central for lots to see/do. Nearest pub, 2 miles.
