This romantic bolthole boasts a quiet location surrounded by countryside. The area is a haven for walkers, with multiple routes from the property, as well as easy access to Dartmoor National Park and the South West Coast Path (both within 8 miles). From the holiday cottage, you can enjoy day trips to Burgh Island, Salcombe, and Dartmouth. In the evenings, return to your cosy cottage to watch a film on the sofa or dine alfresco in the BBQ area.

The single-storey barn conversion has an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner/bedroom with an impressive, vaulted ceiling and exposed woodwork throughout. The cottage is warm and inviting, thanks to underfloor heating, and has a homely feel with artwork on the walls and cosy soft furnishings. Share dinners for two around the wooden dining table, before snuggling up on the sofa to watch TV. Steps lead to a mezzanine floor, where you’ll find the kitchenette. When it’s time to say goodnight, sink into the sumptuous king-size bed at the far end of the room. Completing the property is a separate, stylish bathroom. Outside, dine alfresco in the gravelled BBQ area or share picnics in the secluded garden. You’re also welcome to take walks through the owner’s surrounding 10 acres of countryside.

Just 8 miles away is Bigbury-on-Sea where you can enjoy romantic strolls along the golden sand or, at low tide, walk across to the magical Burgh Island, which is a fantastic place for wildlife watching and taking in the panoramic coastal views. The picturesque towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth (both within 13 miles) make great days out, with their plethora of independent shops and eateries, not to mention stunning beaches and coastal walks. For something a bit different, hop on the steam train in Totnes to journey through the gorgeous landscape into Dartmoor National Park.

A very attractive getaway in one of the Devon's best locations. This conversion is very comfortable and covers all needs for a couple seeking a quiet downtime.
