Description

Oaktree is a beautiful relaxing cottage, recently refurbished to an exceptionally high standard with a theme of autumn hues blending throughout with coordinated fabrics and furniture making this cottage a delightful retreat.

Offering spacious and flexible luxury 4 star accommodation, Oaktree is one of eight luxurious 4 STAR self-catering cottages set high up on a hill-top, boasting one of the most impressive far reaching views in the area. The landscape unfolding in front of you takes in the rolling undulating hills of the South Hams (a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) with the majestic heights of Dartmoor and her tors balanced in the distance. Watching the sunset over this glorious scene literally takes your breath away!

Although set in a beautiful rural location, a heavenly oasis of 42 acres of woodland and pasture, reached by a half mile private track, local amenities are only 2 miles away and a 15th Century Old Devon Longhouse serving good pub food

Location description from owner

The English Riviera region

South Devon is a popular holiday destination, boasting some of the highest temperatures during the summer months in England. Paignton is part of an area encompassing Torquay and Brixham - a beautiful unspoilt fishing harbour town, commonly known as the English Rivera. Oldway Mansion in the heart of Paignton was once the home of the Singer family, founders of the famous Sewing Machine. Agatha Christie was born and bred in Torquay, The Princess Theatre on the sea front often shows productions written by this legend.

Three miles from Oaktree is the lovely town of Totnes which has a fabulous market every Friday in the heart of the town - plenty of local produce, a lot of organic, very orginal foods and some marvellous interesting artefacts! During the summer months, Elizabethan dress is almost compulsory with the locals going about their everyday business on a Tuesday. The town is definitely worth a visit - plenty of great eating places and some great Tea rooms with irresistible home made cakes!

The English Riviera boasts 22 miles of coastal paths and countless sandy beaches, the nearest is Goodrington Sands but Blackpool Sands is definitely worth a visit - you may have to pay to park in the car park but once it's full no one else is allowed onto this golden beach, therefore never crowded and just fabulous really clean facilities.

During the months of June, July and August there are countless fetes, fairs, festivals, carnivals - literally something happening every week.

Paignton

Oaktree is probably in one of the best locations for exploring South Devon. Few places in the world can genuinely offer you such a wide range of ways to spend your time. Relaxing on the beach, afternoons browsing through designer shops or visiting fascinating museums.

If you have the energy, there is a vast selection of sporting activities to choose from, both on the water and off the water, plus hundreds of place to visit within easy reach and a diary packed with events and festivals. For those looking to spread their wings there are historic towns, expansive morrs, picture-postcard villages and heritage-rich cities close by, just waiting to be discovered.

Just a few places to visit:

Dartmoor
Paignton Zoo
Quaywest Water Park
Torbay Golf Centre
Junior Quad Bike Centre
Model Village
Kent's Cavern
Torquay Museum
Torre Abbey
Compton Castel
Steam Railway
Princess Theatre
Paignton Harbour
Sharpham Vineyard
Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary & Buckfast Butterflies
Hedgehog Hospital

“Great country break destination”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2013

Spent a great New Years' Eve country break with my friends. The accommodation and conditions are superb for a few days away from the Big Smoke. Just a quick ride to the beach and a spa/leisure centre is just a few minutes away. Also, a magnificent view over the Dartmoor National Park! Would definitely recommend it!

Thanks very much for taking the time to send a review, we really appreciate it and wish you all the best for the new year.
