About the Owner

We moved to Devon in 1977 and brought up our two children. We started off in Dartmouth and then found this lovely barn. We really try to meet all our guests needs and are happy to give helpful advice on placing to visit and love meeting lots of people. We both work in the tourist trade, Shirley works in local hotel as a Therapist and Terry launches and recovers boats in the Salcombe estuary, although very shortly we will be retiring.

Guestbook comments from the owner

There is a feed back book available to read in cottage. Everyone loves the use of the conservatory and nearness of beaches and still retaining its peaceful location,

not overloaded with tourists in immediate location. Love the local coastal walks with affordable cafes positioned along the path on route.

lovely late-summer break

  • 4 of 5

Friendly hosts and cosy cottage. An adventure arriving through lanes with plants brushing against both sides of our Citroen C5.

But the consequent peaceful location worth the trip.

The conservatory was good, giving a more spacious feel to the property. All well-equipped with relaxing feel to sitting room.

Location

From the Owner

We love this rural location with its rolling hills and love sitting in the garden watching the Buzzards up in the thermals, foxes creeping across the fields and often you can see deer in hills. We love the fact that of a night time there is no light pollution so the stars are magnificent and our guest often comment on the wonder of the stars and they often can be seen sitting on the decking with a glass of wine, stargazing. Property dates back to 1550 and has an old world charm with beautiful views over the rolling hills. Is on a spit of land so there is a choice of beaches of your choice either shingle or sand. Extremely peaceful and tranquil
