Cottage near Slapton and Start Bay, South Hams, Devon
From £399 per week
Holly Cottage. A cosy barn conversion with 2 bedrooms near Slapton and the beaches of Start Bay in the South Hams. Walking into the cottage from the courtyard you enter the tiled hallway, with a lovely cosy lounge with everything you’d expect from a barn conversion- wooden beams, woodburner, wood floor but also the comforts necessary for a great relaxing break, such as comfortable sofas and chairs, flat screen TV and DVD player. Also downstairs you will find the very well equipped kitchen with fitted units, gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment. In the kitchen you’ll also find the large dining table which easily seats 4, and we can provide a highchair if required for any little guests. Upstairs benefits from 2 bedrooms, one double room which overlooks the courtyard, and the second with a velux window has two single beds. The family bathroom is also upstairs, offering a fully equipped bathroom with a shower over bath, toilet, heated towel rail and shaver point. The cottage is lovely and warm thanks to gas central heating whatever the weather outside, and has broadband WiFi. Outside there is a yard with a bench seat to catch some quiet time with a book and cup of tea. There is ample car parking, and we are also lucky to share a large one and a half acre meadow with the fellow residents and guests staying in the other cottages nearby. Within the meadow there are two duck ponds and even a BBQ for your use whilst the Children (and adults!) run around enjoying the space.
The perfect space for relaxing, but also ideally located for the beaches of South Devon. Holly Cottage is 1.5 miles from Start Bay, offering a huge stretch of shingle bay, great for fishing and swimming in the Summer. Slightly farther afield it’s easy to explore Cornwall from this location. The cottage itself is located in a small development of similar size and style properties, of which there are 8 in total barn conversions, all converted around 35 years ago from the original farm. The Cottage is located in a beautiful sheltered valley, just crying out to be explored with a good pair of walking boots. We’re based 1.5 miles from the village of Slapton with two fabulous pubs offering excellent food, and only 10 minutes from the family friendly beach of Blackpool Sands. If you’re looking for something more adventurous, you’ll be located about 25 minutes from the surfing beach of Bantham where you can hire a board and wetsuit and go catch some waves! Within the South Hams you’ll also find further great surfing spots at Wembury, Challaborough and Bigbury-on-Sea, where it’s possible to hire surfboards, wetsuits and have lessons at some of these locations. From this location, whilst you may feel you’re almost in the middle of nowhere, you can be in the middle of Plymouth within 45 minutes, where you’ll find supermarkets, cinemas, the Theatre Royal, concert venues, restaurants, pubs, cafes, a shopping mall and our favourite, the National Marine Aquarium. For those of you wanting to spend a bit more time on the water, it’s possible to jump on a number of boats offering river and coastal cruises from Dartmouth.
