Graded by English Heritage of national importance, dating back centuries, love has been poured into its restoration to provide a special place for our guests where history meets modern day luxuries. Full of character including an enviable slipper bath, super comfy king size bed, relaxing downstairs area with all the amenities guests have wanted, we have been welcoming guests since 2009. With some welcome gifts as a thank you, combined with our own detailed information on walks/beaches/restaurants /man-made and even natural attractions to guide guests to the many gems in the locality, we offer a wonderful, quaint place to stay from which they can explore gems in our area of South Devon, the English Riviera, with or without their four legged friend in tow. Pet friendly, which is unusual in a 4* Platinum property, we can also arrange pampering treatments and even baby-sitting in your cottage. Whatever the reason for a stay, we strive to make them special as guests have come over the years celebrating an anniversary, Valentine’s, honeymoon, first holiday with a baby or just a lovely holiday. Ideal for the couple who wants just the most romantic place to stay, whether celebrating an anniversary, Valentine’s, honeymoon or simply a lovely holiday; but also for the individual for that extra luxury and peace. Look at the first floor! Super king size bed, beautiful furnishings, and that 'Cadbury's Flake' open bath; just imagine soaking with that glass of wine or champagne, looking up to the vaulted ceiling in the candle light. Downstairs you have a cosy, warm room with separated areas for lounge, dining and kitchen; with a cooker, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, along with Smart TV, Wi-Fi, access to Netflix, a comfortable settee and personal information folders to make the most of our great natural and man made attractions, eateries and places to visit - the wealth of gems to enjoy.. Whilst outside leads to the Old Orchard where you can sit and enjoy, soaking up the sun if you are not out and about at the many beaches, walks, attractions or fooderies! Coast/Beach: Within a 5 mile radius you can access over 10 beaches from secluded coves to long stretches of sand (nearest within 1mile)! Guest folder has details. Nearby Maidencombe (16th Century Thatched Tavern); Watcombe Cove; Oddicombe with historic tram and chef pub of the year (Cary Arms); Meadfoot with woodland behind; Ness Beach (via smugglers cove); Torre Abbey (awarded best sand for sand castles in UK); Preston (with beach huts), Paignton (Pier), Goodrington (waterpark) and Broadsands. Wonderful! Further Details: If travelling with children, one doesn't want to travel too far to entertain them! Two local beaches are within a few minutes; cinema, ten pin bowling, under ground caves, coastal zoo, in door play zones, golf, squash, tennis, in door wave pool are within 10 minutes; and if you go up to 30 minutes you find water park, adventure parks, another zoo and Dartmoor. Whether sun, rain or shine, something to entertain, never mind your relaxing base! Thinking about the parents, or adults travelling without children, the surrounding area is also literally packed with shops, restaurants, sports activities, countryside, historic houses and beautiful gardens all within a 20 minutes drive. English, French, Greek, Italian, Chinese, Indian and Nepalese Restaurants within minutes of the property; similarly Golf, Gyms, Sailing, Boating, Saunas. On top there are theatres and a museum, also within Torquay. With such a choice, we can provide local knowledge to help you choose the right place to eat or visit, saving you time, money and frustration - as a family we hate finding that great place right at the end of a holiday, so we will try not to let that happen for you! We have even negotiated some discount rates for our guests at various places! More
