Foss Cottage is the perfect escape: no TV, no mobile coverage, just a Dansette, a fireplace and a fantastic sea view (you can even see the sea from the bed in two of the rooms).
The house is in a brilliant location at the very end of a tiny lane. No one comes past. There is a large garden with a set of paths that climb up the hillside. Our kids loved playing there. There are loads of great games and toys.
A short walk takes you to a number of beaches (some of them hidden at high tide), to a lookout station or along the coast to Salcombe if you are more ambitious. It is easy to come to house without a car. You can get a taxi from Totnes railway station. There is also a bus to Kingsbridge (once a week!) and a shop in the village for basic supplies.
