Short Breaks in the South Hams, South Devon
What our Guests Say About Their Breaks
Beautifully positioned cottages. Gardens and land was a lovely extra and we enjoyed walking the dogs round twice daily. Well furnished cottages and to a very good standard. Lovely to have dog blankets, walking sticks and those extra special extras which make the stay even nicer.
Stayed for a week-end break, The Owlery had everything we needed, very comfortable and in a quiet and beautiful location. Jon and Ruth were very helpful and made us feel very welcome.
What a gorgeous place, we are so pleased we found it! The AONB is a hidden gem. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming, many thanks.
Lovely quiet location. Cottage and garden really well maintained. Highly recommend.
Lovely walks too.
In Honeysuckle a single-storey detached cottage, guests can relax in front of the woodburner and watch the wildlife over the pond and valley. The wildlife walk can be taken from the cottage door. One dog is welcome in this cottage, two on request. Kingsize bed and separate kitchen dining room.
In The Owlery you are surrounded by meadows and gardens and can snuggle up in the king-size bed or enjoy a relaxing soak in the spa bath, which is big enough for two!
This is a pet free cottage with its own private parking space.
Dovecote, a two bedroom cottage, has a cosy sitting room with woodburner, a separate kitchen dining area with slate floor, and a kingsize bed.
Dogs are welcome with a garden gate leading to the orchard.
Buddleia has a kingsize bed, stable-style front door which leads to a large private garden, woodburner, and a second twin bedroom.
Dogs are welcome, with easy access to the meadows and orchard.
We have two further dogs welcome cottages, Rafters sleeps 4, and Willows sleeps 6, which are also available for short breaks. Further details of all our cottages can be found on the Cottages page.

Prices include bed linen (beds are made up for your arrival), central heating or night-storage heating, electricity, and a complimentary basket of logs, firelighters and kindling for those cottages with woodburners.
