Short Breaks in the South Hams, South Devon
What our Guests Say About Their Breaks
Ruth and Jon are perfect hosts, offering lots of tips if you need them in addition to the information in the cottage itself. They are incredibly welcoming and it is no mean feat to balance this in the current climate with social distancing. We are looking forward to organising another break here!
Honeysuckle Cottage was perfect for two of us and Daisy our dog. Clean, functional and cosy. It was lovely to be able to wonder around in the wonderful grounds. Ruth and John could not have been more helpful. So many places nearby to explore. A very special place to stay.
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.
