About the property

These two cottages are tucked away in the hamlet of Stancombe which has been converted from a South Devon cider farm. They are about 50 metres apart and can be rented separately or together. Situated in 21 acres of outstanding natural beauty including orchards, woodland and gardens, they also have superb leisure facilities on the doorstep. Conveniently located for both the coast and moors with the nearest beach, Slapton Sands, three miles away at Torcross, they are within easy reach of Salcombe, Dartmouth and Totnes.
