Property Description

These superb converted barns are set on a 50-acre farm in a lush, green valley, with stunning views out over Lyme Bay. An area of breathtaking beauty, walk to the top field and look out over Exmouth, Dawlish, Teignmouth and the tors of Dartmoor. Or wander along private lanes to public footpaths which lead to Smugglers Cove, Teignmouth and beyond. Within 2 miles you can play golf on an 18-hole course, swim in an open-air pool, enjoy sea fishing and relax on a sandy beach. There is riding and coarse fishing 5 miles away, and at Dawlish Warren, 5½ miles, there is a 500-acre natural bird sanctuary, where you can see thousands of birds on land and overhead; the farm itself is also home to many different species, including the nationally rare cirl bunting. Within a 10-mile radius there are two racecourses, picturesque villages and fishing harbours, sandy coves and the high moorlands of Dartmoor. The Roman city of Exeter is approximately 15 miles, whilst bustling Torbay (9 miles), which encompasses Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, has theatres, a yachting marina and a selection of fine gardens to visit; in addition to Kent’s Cavern, where the remains of some of Britain’s very earliest inhabitants (dating back approximately 25,000 years) were found. Here you’ll find castles, abbeys, wildlife parks, steam trains and model railways all within easy reach, with many open throughout the year. Newton Abbot’s attractions include Bradley Manor, a 15th-century manor house set in 70-acre woodlands and meadows, the Gorse Blossom Miniature Railway and Woodland Park, and a Hedgehog Hospital at Prickley Ball Farm. Shop ½ mile, pub ¾ mile.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Small & well equipped cottage, with amazing views over Lyme Bay. Very quiet location, but near enough to Teignmouth for shopping & going out. Helpful on site owners. Oct 2011.
  2. Great base for touring the area, and lots to see around. Cottage very comfortable and would certainly want to return, would recomend. Sept 2011.
  3. Lovely views and feel of space but very near to all amenities. Wonderful for children, great sand safe play area. Very friendly and helpful owners. Aug 2011.
  4. A lovely property in a lovely area. Beautiful view and close to everything you could need. The property is well equipped and your stay will be comfortable once you get the hang of the boiler. July 2011.
  5. The cottage is in a perfect location to visit the areas around Devon.We were more than pleased with the cottage it was fitted out to a high standard & very clean. We are already planning to go back next sometime year. Strongly recommend you try the Smugglers Arms for fantastic food and service. Feb 2011.
  6. Really lovely cottage set in a very picturesque area with amazing views. Great for families. Nov 2010.
  7. The property was small and compact. The external area was lovely and the views spectacular. I liked the way the surrounding area was enclosed by a gate and no cars allowed through making it safer for small children. June 2010.
  8. The cottage had a lovely welcoming appearance, it was spacious, clean, and cosy with modern touches. Lovely views from the upstairs windows. Very good facilities too. March 2010.
  9. The property is situated in a great position with superb views to the countryside and sea. It is just a short drive to the town and supermarket, but a small local shop nearby for emergency essentials. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could need for a holiday. The whole place was clean and tidy, which for me are always the main points. The main downside is that while parking is available, it can be a bit tricky, especially if you a large family car. There is some parking on the way in for larger vehicles or the less confident parker, which is useful. The country lane is pitch black at night with a very sharp corner, which is a bit daunting at first. One word of waring is that the stairs up to the bathroom and bedrooms are quite steep. Sept 2009.
  10. Everything was perfect. June 2009.
  11. Fantastic view and lovely walks straight from the cottage. June 2009.
  12. Lovely, peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. Good view across the fields to the sea. The hens are funny. Sept 2008.
  13. The cottages are better then the pictures on the website. Aug 2008.
  14. Wonderful views and a lovely atmosphere. Very tranquil and relaxing. June 2008.
  15. Property was excellent, location perfect for us very friendly service. April 2007.
