The cottage consists of a lounge/dining area with a high vaulted beamed ceiling, an oak floor and a mix of antique and contemporary furniture and tasteful soft furnishings. The Shaker style kitchen is well equipped with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dish-washer and microwave, together with everything that you need to rustle up a meal. Downstairs, the contemporary shower-room, has a powerful shower and free-standing wash basin. Upstairs, the king-size bed nestles under the beamed ceiling and is complemented by antique pine furniture. Crisp cotton bed-linen and bathrobes add a touch of luxury here. There is gas fired central heating throughout. Outside, there is a small walled courtyard with views to the pond and is set within the 4 acre gardens and grounds of this former farmhouse.

Whilst the cottage is attached to the owners AA "4Star Gold" trated Bed and Breakfast establishment, it is still very separate from the main house and the owners are very conscious of guests' privacy.

Locally there are plenty of characterful pubs and restaurants serving great food - much of it locally sourced. Buckfastleigh with its quaint high street of shops, pubs and eateries is a pleasant 15 minute walk away.

The England region

South Devon is one of the most popular holiday destinations in England. Having access to two coastlines, the South Hams with its estuaries and beaches and the nearby Dartmoor National Park and the more rugged north coast.

Dartmoor National Park is area of unspoilt, natural beauty and is stunning at anytime of year. We are surrounded by pretty towns and villages such as Ashburton and Totnes, and the coastal towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe.

Ashburton

Buckfastleigh is situated mid way between Exeter and Plymouth on the south side of the Dartmoor National Park. It sits just of the A38 at one of the main entrance routes to the South Hams area of South Devon.
