About the property

Village Location. Pretty and private sunny garden, 2 bedrooms. River and Country Walks Nearby.

Bumble cottage is very comfortable with modern conveniences whilst retaining the atmosphere of an old property. The cottage is set on a quiet road off the main village street with private parking, a rarity in Devon. The sheltered position means that the garden becomes a real sun trap whilst the summerhouse gives views across to Dartmoor. In summer you can watch Ravens nesting close by and House Martins and Swallows wheeling overhead. Wonderful walks down to the River Dart accessible without getting into your car.

About Mrs Jenny Steele

My husband and I have recently retired and now have the time to focus our attention on our two holiday cottages. Between holiday lets we spend as much time as possible in our cottage in Devon as we love the area of the South Hams. We are also delighted to enable people to enjoy the wonderful City of Oxford and surrounding area whilst staying at our cottage in Wheatley.

Mrs Jenny Steele purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Mrs Jenny Steele chose South Hams

We love the South Hams and were delighted to find a traditional cottage in a village location near the estuary to the river Dart.

What makes this cottage unique

Excellent car parking facilities which is rare in Devon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have all enjoyed our week's holiday at Bumble Cottage. It was the perfect place to unwind. With lovely walks from the cottage to great local pubs and stunning coastline not too far away. The cottage was really comfortable and great to return to each day. Thank you for the lovely wine too!!

A perfect bolt hole for a relaxing weekend away.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, clean and well equipped cottage, in a quiet village, perfect for 2/3 and a dog. Bed comfortable and rooms got plenty warm enough once the wood burner was alight. Stairs to the upstairs are narrow and twisty but this all adds to the charm of the property. Handy to have off street parking at the back of the house too. The village only has a pub but that was excellent and very welcoming and dog friendly. Would suggest that the you make sure to take basic provisions, milk, bread etc with you but the bottle of welcome wine was much appreciated: many thanks! A pleasant walk direct from the cottage to Bow Creek and several places of interest within a short drive, though some of the roads are very narrow and can make for a slow journey..but hey...what's the rush....you're on holiday! All in all a good value pleasant place to stay in a wonderful part of Devon.

We all really loved our stay in Bumble Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We all really loved our stay in Bumble Cottage. Our holiday came at a time when we were all very tired. The cottage was so comfortable and we were able to relax and do as much or as little as we wished. We enjoyed local walks directly from the cottage and were delighted that there were several wonderful pubs to choose from in Cornworthy and neighbouring villages. On days we wanted to venture further we enjoyed beautiful coastal walks into Dartmouth and the town of Totnes was also great to explore. The cottage was really well equipped and it was lovely to find a bottle of wine to greet us on our arrival too. Many thanks for a great break. Kate, David, Joe and Rupert our rescue dog.

Perfect Week to Unwind

  • 5 of 5

Bumble Cottage was the perfect location to unwind and recharge our batteries. Its in easy reach of Totnes, Dartmouth etc but the village of Cornworthy is quiet and out of the general hustle and bustle. The Village pub is friendly and serves excellent food and if your a fish eater The Maltsters Arms down the road is a must.

The cottage itself is fantastically well equipped with everything you could need, the summerhouse stores a Bar-B-Cue so you can make the most of sunny days without leaving the cottage. The cottage is brilliantly well maintained and we will definitely stay again. Its the perfect little holiday retreat from which you can do as much or as little as you like.
