The cottage is situated in the rolling countryside of the beautiful South Hams area of South Devon just 10 minutes drive from the stunning Devon coast. Oak offers stylish, comfortable self catering accommodation for up to 12 people and is an ideal venue for family or friends to get together, with plenty of room to spread out and relax - whatever you want to do. The living space is generous and made up of an L shaped lounge with ample seating, table and chairs for card/board games and a TV area with flat screen free view TV, and DVD Player. A second reception area has additional comfortable seating, a smart TV, PlayStation 4, Ipod dock and a games table for snooker and table tennis. The kitchen is newly refurbished and offers a large modern, fully equipped kitchen with everything you need including a dining area that will seat up to 14. The house is centrally heated with radiators in all rooms and comes with free wifi/internet access. Outside there is parking for 2 cars in the courtyard and overflow parking behind the stable block. The lush communal gardens, accessed from the adjacent courtyard, amount to 1. 5 acres and include brick BBQ, picnic tables, areas for playing games, playhouse and swings, ponds/water features and a wealth of wildlife all surrounded by lovely countryside, the caretaker also breeds barn owls from time to time which prove a great attraction as well as offering a bat detector and an underwater camera. Oak Cottage is perfectly situated to make the most of the beautiful South Hams countryside and stunning South Devon coast and beaches. There are walks to suit everyone along the coastal path or inland through woods, fields and of course the Dartmoor National Park is not far away. The towns of Dartmouth, Totnes, Kingsbridge and Salcombe are within easy reach. There are lovely pubs, restaurants, galleries and shops galore. River trips, steam train outings, water sports, sailing, golf, tennis, fishing, crabbing, horse riding - and if you have any energy left there are several child friendly activity parks in the area! The cottage also comes with 25% reduction in fees for the Dartmouth Golf and Country Club (golf course and spa) - 10 minutes away. Unfortunately Oak Cottage is not suitable for STAG or HEN parties or groups of school leavers due to the close proximity of other holiday cottages.More

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is in a rural setting just over a mile from the village of Slapton, surrounded by beautiful countryside and only 10 minutes drive from the coast. There are lots of lovely walks to suit everyone straight from the cottage or starting a short drive away including the South West Coastal path. Slapton Ley is a freshwater reserve 10 minutes away with lovely walks round it, bird watching and fishing with lots of information and activities to be picked up from the Slapton Ley Field Center nearby. There are great pubs and restaurants in the area at Slapton, Torcross, Strete, Beesands, Chillington, Stokenham, Dartmouth, Hope Cove, Salcombe, Totnes. Kingsbride is the nearest town with supermarkets, local shops, restaurants, swimming
Getting around
The South Hams is an area of South Devon that is one of the prettiest parts of the country - with characteristic narrow lanes, high hedges, rolling countryside and fabulous coastal and rural views. The stunning coast is a mixture of long stretches of beach (Slapton Sands) and lovely little coves (many originally frequented by smugglers) with one of these being the blue flag beach at Blackpool Sands. The coast is stunning with fabulous walks along beaches or cliffs with wonderful views along the coast and out into the English Channel. This is a very popular holiday destination for many but remains unspoilt and generally quiet (not much clubbing!) but with plenty to do for all ages and tastes whatever the weather or time of year.
