Why we love this

  • Gorgeous private garden with hidden sun deck and countryside views
  • Excellent location for country walks, beaches and Dartmoor National Park
  • Part of a luxury cottage estate with swimming pools and play areas

Step inside to the large, enclosed porch where you can slip off your boots and hang your coats before entering the open-plan living area. Comprising the sitting room, kitchen and dining room, it’s spacious and features a vaulted, beamed ceiling, yet is cosy and has underfloor heating.

There’s plenty of room to socialise and relax on the comfy sofas as you watch TV or warm up beside the cosy log burner, while a set of French doors lead outside to the terrace.

The kitchen area has a large island with a built-in oven and hob, plus a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, a washing machine and tumble dryer, a toaster, a kettle and a coffee machine, while the long dining table can easily sit up to 10 people.

All four of the bedrooms are on the lower ground floor, which is accessed via a staircase in the living area. Bedroom one has a super-king-size bed and Bedroom two is a standard double, both rooms have an en-suite shower room with a WC, basin and heated towel rail.

Bedrooms three and four are both small twin rooms, one with an L-shaped cabin bed which is suitable for children under 12 years old only and one with two single beds.

An additional infant can be accommodated in a cot.

There is also a family bathroom with a bath and shower over, a WC, a basin and a heated towel rail.

Outside, the large, private terrace has a dining table and chairs, a BBQ, a secret sun deck and a private walkway to the indoor pool and spa facilities.

This cottage also has a private driveway with parking.

You’ll also have access to the estate’s 14 acres of beautiful grounds, plus shared on-site facilities. These include an indoor swimming pool (Fern House benefits from a private pathway to the pool), an outdoor swimming pool and shared hot tub, a tennis court and children’s play areas.

The door to the cottage will be open and the key will be on the table. The owners live at the site and are available during your stay should you need any assistance. The swimming pools, hot tub, tennis court and play areas are shared facilities available to guests of all cottages at the site.
