Southills Cottage is a cosy one bedroom barn conversion – a delightful romantic retreat for two, in a very peaceful location with fabulous views over rolling countryside.

The barn has been lovingly restored to offer an excellent standard of holiday accommodation with lovely stylish furnishings and décor – a wonderful spot to escape the outside world and unwind.

Forming part of the Southills Farm estate, the barn was converted some 20 years ago and sits in its own courtyard. The mezzanine floor which formerly was used to drop bales of hay to feed the animals below is now a lovely light living area with comfortable sofa and leather rocking chair and leads onto the bedroom.

If you're looking for complete relaxation, this delightful cottage ticks all the boxes. Stay here and you’re in a rural location within easy reach of nearby towns. Visit maritime Dartmouth with its lovely cafes, stylish shops and boutiques. Head north and you'll reach the market town of Totnes, which sits further upstream on the River Dart. Alternatively, Spend your days relaxing on the beach - the beautiful South Devon coastline is just a 30 minutes away…  the amazing beaches at Slapton and Blackpool Sands are well worth the drive.

Absolutely loved the cottage, in fact if I could pick it up and locate it near me I would quite happily live there for the rest of my life. The bath is enormous, so much so you could hold a gala in it :o) . The roads are as you would expect extremely narrow but thats a minor issue. Very quiet, comfortable and pleasant. Thank you !

Mr P,

Enjoyed our time at Southills cottage, walks from the door and local pub served excellent meals and staff were friendly.

Mrs M,

Restful out of the way location. Owners checked to see we had everything we needed, which we did and spent a wonderful week in the cottage.

Mr D,

The location of this property is lovely, a quiet retreat. It is well appointed, with everything you need and close to stunning countryside and waterside spots.

Mrs J,

Good, well-equipped cottage. Be prepared to drive on narrow lanes to get to and from the cottage. Good location for visiting South Devon and a number of NT properties close by.

Mr P,

Secluded location, perfect for a quiet getaway
