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 enjoy fine dining at the 'Orestone Manor' restaurant.
The bungalow is annexed off the main house, with its own private entrance. It has two bedrooms - one with a double bed, one with a single bed, and a double sofa bed in the lounge. It has dining space for four, a modern kitchen/diner with a gas hob, electric oven, 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. In the lounge there is a flat screen TV, DVD player, free sat channels, free wifi, and cupboards full of games and DVDs.
We would recommend this apartment for up to four adults, or three adults and two children. However this is only a recommendation, the price you pay is for the apartment, we do not charge per person.
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 pub which has won awards for both its beer garden and pie menu. The pub has two wood burning stoves and a lovely sofa to snuggle into with a mulled wine on crisp winter evenings.
We are pet friendly and always welcome well behaved, clean pets at no extra charge. The beach and local pub are also doggie friendly.
For walkers Lily Cottage is situated on the South West costal path – or if you are a fan of the moors 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. You will find a guide to the local restaurants waiting for you in the cottage when you arrive.
There are lots of activities for kids in the surrounding towns - try a day out at Kent's Cavern the world famous prehistoric caves or the fabulous Paignton Zoo. For the adventurous there is Splashdown Water Park, Woodlands Adventure Park, Crealy World of Adventures, and Go Ape.
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. Be warned that mobile phone coverage is almost non-existent in the village - so you really can escape from it all. We do however have free wifi throughout the apartment.
If you need more accommodation please look at my other apartment - Penny Farthings - which sleeps four on the same estate.
