Property Description

"Colourful gardens amidst acres of farmland – just a mile from South Devon’s golden sands . . ."

Just a mile inland from the beach and sea at Man Sands, these five cottages enjoy a gloriously secluded rural situation on a 47-acre working farm, yet are convenient for the delights of picturesque Kingswear (1½ miles) and historic Dartmouth. Imaginatively formed within a charming group of barns, they are set in superb landscaped shared gardens. An indoor heated swimming pool and a sauna have been created in a separate building, and a further barn offers facilities for table tennis, pool table, ‘fun’ netball and badminton. A spacious play area within a walled garden is equipped with swings, a sand pit, adventure playground, large outdoor trampoline (with safety netting), a large lawned area with raised decking, complete with garden furniture and views over the surrounding countryside; and here there is also an indoor playroom with ball pool, climbing frame and a range of children’s ride-on tractors and cars for outdoor use. The gardens are a riot of colour, with flower beds, tubs, hanging baskets and an intriguing network of brick paths, courtyards and paved terraces. Further afield the estate includes a well-stocked one-acre fishing lake (rods not supplied). Children are welcome to help feed the animals; and there are goats, ponies, kune kune pigs, sheep, lambs, rabbits and guinea pigs to make friends with. The taste of rural life at Nethway continues with walks through the fields.
The cottages themselves have been meticulously converted, with careful use of traditional stone and slate. All are tastefully furnished and decorated throughout, and comprehensively equipped. All of the properties have their own patios with furniture (Hyssop and Lovage Cottages have their own lawned garden), and all enjoy shared use of a separate barbecue area. They are ideal for holidays at any time of the year – all properties are cosily heated throughout and this region is especially beautiful in the quieter off-season months. For Christmas and New Year holidays, each cottage has a festively decorated Christmas tree and the roaring log fires in all living rooms are ideal for the Autumn and Winter months. This peninsula is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is renowned for its coastline, which offers coastal walks and a choice of footpaths leading to secluded beaches. The village of Kingswear itself is set on the Dart estuary opposite Dartmouth – which can be reached via ferry. Here you will find a wealth of things to do, including the Kingswear–Paignton steam railway, Paignton Zoo and Woodlands Leisure Park, to name but a few, and many Blue Flag beaches and hidden coves are within easy reach. Coleton Fishacre (NT) is 1 mile away. Torquay, Brixham and Paignton offer an array of seaside attractions and are within easy driving distance. Dittisham and Totnes make excellent river excursions from Dartmouth, and Dartmoor is only 45 minutes drive. Golf, sailing and riding can all be enjoyed locally and the nearby coastline boasts a choice of surfing beaches. Shops 1½ miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Great cottage! Made very welcome. Lots for children to do on site - climbing frame, trampoline and indoor play area well-used. They also really enjoyed visiting animals and feeding the pigs. Lovely beaches nearby too. June 2012.
  2. Lovely cosy cottage, felt instantly at home. Location is superb, rural, quiet and beautiful, but only 10 minutes from the beaches and 5 minutes from Kingswear. Children had lots to do on site, animals, indoor and outdoor play areas and great pool. Take a torch if you need to find your car (or anything else!) after dark and a nightlight if you have children as it is pitch black at night. Would recommend it whole-heartedly and plan to return. Sept 2011.
  3. Very family friendly, loads to do rain or shine. Kids loved it. The pool and the animals kept the children interested every day. Excellent holiday and cottage. Aug 2011.
  4. Fabulous place with tiny children or teens like us- great people who own the property - love it can’t sdvise you enough - go here it’s really good no regrets no complaints only I had to leave. March 2011.
  5. Comfortable well equiped and home like. Owner was very welcome in a problem we had, and made the cottage very homely. Feb 2011.
  6. Great facilities for the children, which was one of the main aims of the vacation. Feb 2011.
  7. Lovely cottage! Great location, great facilities, great holiday! Jan 2010.
  8. Layout ideal for our purposes. Nov 2010.
  9. Accommodation smart and clean, included all essentials. Lovely courtyard, garden and facilities - all well maintained. Good parking. Aug 2010.
  10. Clean, well equipped if a little chintzy. June 2010.
  11. A lovely light cottage with plenty of space in a stunning location. The owners were extremely helpful and allowed our children to feed the lambs on the farm which was wonderful! The facilities for children were outstanding with a well equipped indoor playroom and plenty of outside toys too. The pool was spotlessly clean and very warm. It was wonderful! March 2010.
  12. Comfortable and quiet cottage with all the right facilities. March 2010.
  13. Comfortable and attractively decorated, well equipped, in a beautiful part of the world. Nov 2009.
  14. It was great having an enclosed garden for the dog and children. Oct 2009.
  15. Lovely homely cottage. Fantastic facilities on site. Approachable and helpful owners. Beautiful location. Oct 2009.

  17. The accommodation and complex were good, the children had a ball in spite of the weather. July 2009.
  18. Lovage Cottage may have excellent facilities for children, but it is also a superb base for adults only. Quiet, wonderful views and a well equipped cottage. March 2009.
  19. A lovely clean cottage, with excellent facilities for children, whatever the weather. The accommodation was in a beautiful setting - far enough out of the town to feel remote, but actually only a short drive from necessary facilities. The farm animals added to the enjoyment of the holiday, as did our private garden, which was lovely to sit in with a drink after a long day sightseeing! June 2009.
  20. It was our first family holiday since our son was born and we all had an excellent time. The cottage was exactly what we were hoping for and more. The owners have made a real effort to make the place family friendly and we loved the swimming pool and feeding the farm animals. The weather was terrible during our holiday, but the fact that we were staying in such a lovely place meant it didn’t spoil our week at all. Nov 2008.
