  • Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    ½ mile from Slapton, a south-facing, hill-sheltered, very pretty, Grade II listed, detached thatched cob cottage with probably 15th cent. origins. All around is a large, mostly lawned garden, full of primroses and daffodils in the spring, with meadows beyond. Immediately in front, a paved area (table/chairs) with gates to the narrow approach lane and a number of stone steps up to the lawn and orchard (fantastic picnic/snoozing spot) with sun loungers and more chairs.
    Inside, typically lumpy, bumpy walls, lopsided low lintels (some lower than 5'), two sets of stairs and slate floors downstairs. Door from garden to kitchen (oil-fired Rayburn for cosiness/hot water, dishwasher, microwave) with table/chairs/benches, handmade units, low beam (5'10'); lobby with toys; utility room wi...
