Description:

In a superb location on a dreamy wooded inlet off the River Dart Estuary, this unique Georgian cottage is tucked into a hillside with glorious views. Delightful, arched windows with stunning views across the valley make this cottage very special. Charming and imaginative décor sets off each room with its own individual character. It offers a beamed living room with wood-burning stove and French doors opening on to a decked terrace, and a large hand-made pine kitchen/dining-room with feature fireplace and slate floor. The large garden includes a flower garden and woodland area. Trout fishing and picnicking by the river in the meadow.

It is just a short stroll to two country pubs where riverside barbecues and excellent eating can be enjoyed by the water's edge in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with the villages of Ashprington and Tuckenhay nearby.Only 6 miles from the sea at Dartmouth, and close to the historic market town of Totnes, this is a delightful countryside location, within easy reach of some of South Devon's loveliest beaches and coves, as well as the wild expanse of the Dartmoor National Park. Guests can also enjoy a 25% discount at the Dartmouth Golf Club, with an 18-hole championship course as well as a 9-hole club course, health spa and swimming-pool.

This beautiful area, with its wooded valley sides and abundant wildlife, offers rewarding opportunities for walkers and bird-watchers. Riding is available locally, as well as river fishing, while sea and boat fishing, and boat trips from local harbors, can all be enjoyed within a few miles. Nearby Totnes is a picturesque town with a castle (English Heritage) and some old buildings standing on pillars over the pavement. The Devonshire Collection of Period Costume can be seen in the museum here. Wine-tasting at Sharpham Vineyard overlooking the Estuary close by.
