A beautifully renovated barn, located within stunning Devon countryside, close to Dartmoor and the dramatic South Devon coastline. Teign Cottage, a semi detached barn conversion with two bedrooms and open-plan living space makes a great escape for the family. For those who love to walk, Teign Cottage offers the perfect base to explore the rugged nearby moors or walk along the many footpaths, passing pretty thatched cottages and stopping off at one of the good food pubs, along the way. 

The owners have renovated the barns to a high standard, with slate flooring and oak doors and some of the original features still visible. The downstairs open-plan kitchen/living/dining room offers great, social living space with large oak, glass doors opening out to the gravelled dining terrace. On the first floor, there is a good sized bathroom, twin bedroom with high vaulted ceiling and master bedroom overlooking the shared courtyard and extensive grounds. For those blustery and wet afternoons, switch on the electric living-flame fire and get stuck into that book you've always wanted to finish.

Teign Cottage is one of four holiday cottages, with owners farmhouse on-site too. The cottages have shared use of an indoor heated swimming pool (10mx5m), changing facilities and the added luxury of a sunken hot tub outside on the veranda - where you get to take in some of the gorgeous scenery which surrounds this very quiet hamlet of houses. There is also 4 acres of orchard to explore, plus beautifully maintained gardens, cared for by the very friendly owners. Sit amongst the gardens and enjoy the scents and sounds of the lavender and honey bee's busy working.

The other 3 cottages are as follows :

Plym Cottage - https://www.originalcottages.co.uk/devon-cottages/south-devon/totnes/bcplym-plym-cottage

It will be hard to resist exploring all of the nearby attractions, towns and walks. Totnes with its vibrant town is less than 6 miles away and the famous Riverford Field Kitchen is just over 10 minutes by car. For those who love a day on the beach, Torquay and it's many seaside attractions is only 10 miles or the famous, Blackpool Sands is 20 miles away. For the children, a day out to Dartington Hall or Paignton Zoo is a must.

Definitely the best holiday in the UK. Great price, best location, best property, best landlord and actually everything. I highly recommend.

Mr H,

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Teign Cottage. The owners are very friendly and everything is of a high standard. The views are lovely - particularly from the hot tub! Having this and the pool onsite was brilliant - especially for keeping the kids entertained on days when the weather wasn't so good. Overall we thoroughly recommend a stay.

Mr O,

Just gorgeous. The cottage was perfect - all the beds and appliances were nicer than ours at home!. The pool and hot tub is something else. We spent 15 hours in there over the week. It was very special. And although it is very remote, you have everything you need so why even get in the car?! Lovely hosts and we've already recommended Lower Knowle to several friends. Oh and the grounds - absolutely beautiful!

Mrs H,

This set of cottages is in a wonderful, quiet location. Alison and Dave are fabulous owners and very attentive. We have been for 2 lots of 2 weeks within the last 8 months. It just felt so very safe and secure. Of course, the added bonus of the pool and hot tub and a winner as well. Highly recommended.

Mrs S,

Lovely cottage in wonderful, peaceful location. Owners very helpful. Thank you so much for our stay.

Mrs L,
