If you want a gorgeous rural location close to an award winning beach, this cottage should fit the bill!
Garden Cottage is a mile from Blackpool Sands (listed in 2013 as Britain's best beach - and we agree!) and the chic coastal town of Dartmouth.
You'll love Garden Cottage because of it's location, the wood burner, the tennis court, it's proximity to Devon beaches and the sheer peace & tranquillity!
Garden Cottage is a beautiful former barn set within the original courtyard of the farm. It's since been beautifully converted into a cottage combining original features with all the modern day requirements necessary for modern day living. The front door opens into a very useful area for shoes and coats to be stored. You then move through to the living room with it's wonderful wood burner, wooden beamed ceiling and large double doors opening on to the rear garden.
From the living room you can access the fully equipped modern cottage kitchen with the dining table to seat four. The stairs to the bedrooms and family bathroom lead up from the corner of the living room, opening on to the landing where you will find the family bathroom with a shower over the bath. The master bedroom has a king size bed with an en-suite shower room. The window overlooks the fish pond looking down towards the tennis court. The twin bedroom has two 3 foot single beds.
Guests have access to the shared tennis court in the complex, listed in The Telegraph as one of the top ten most beautiful tennis courts in Britain! You can also take a stroll around the well manicured gardens. Garden Cottage is off the central courtyard area of the Higher Bowden complex, a small complex of holiday cottages.
We'll provide full details of everything you need to know prior to your stay, and if you need any support whilst on holiday, the property managers live a few miles away.
Garden Cottage is less than 5 miles from Dartmouth in the beautiful South Hams. The cottage is exactly 1 mile away from Blackpool Sands Beach, listed in 2013 as the Daily Mail's number one beach in Britain. If you are looking for a lively, loud holiday, this probably isn't the choice for you in Devon, however if you're seeking a quality property, which is great for outdoor space, chic coastal resorts, fabulous beaches, and peace and tranquillity whilst at 'home', then get in touch.
You have a reserved parking space whilst staying at the cottage.
Reached by quiet back lanes, it spreads over a hillside with distant views of the sea from its upper levels. Immaculate Blackpool Sands, one of Devon's loveliest beaches, is a mile away.
The six and a half acres of beautifully kept gardens & large pond filled with gold fish really does take your breath away when you open the lounge doors and walk out onto the small patio and small private garden. There is also a floodlit tennis court which is a real feature for families who enjoy friendly competition and ball sports.
There are 13 cottages which form two clusters around a pair of 17th-century farmhouses. Those in the lower cluster have more privacy outside where Garden Cottage is located.
Not far away is Woodlands, the largest family theme park in the South West where there is something for everyone to have a fun packed day out!

We had a wonderful holiday in the Garden Cottage. The cottage is simply beautiful and the surrounding area is fantastic. We had great luck with the weather and fell in love with the landscape. We felt very comfortable in your country. Many Thanks. R. Schink - 6th July 2017
Had a lovely week in Garden Cottage. Booked the cottage the night before we arrived after being let down when we arrived in Devon by another company. Sue was great emailed us all the documentation and information that we needed within the hour. Quintin rang us and made sure we were OK and when we arrived the next day we enjoyed the scones, jam and clotted cream and wine. The cottage was lovely, soft beds, fluffy towels and Quintin kept in touch to make sure there were no problems. The cottage is in a lovely place Blackpool sands just down the road, me and my husband walked there and back down the lanes. Dartmouth is easy to get to we used the park and ride so much easier. Caught the steam train to Paignton and had a ride over to Salcombe so may places to get to. The Sportmans Arms do a lovely carvery. All in all we had a good week and the weather wasn't bad either.Ann Higgins, Littleborough - 1st July 2016
