Immediately upon entering the property, you arrive in the glass roofed Orangery - a beautiful, bright room where you can enjoy a drink or read a book surrounded by fruit trees and flowering plants. This leads directly into an open and character filled lounge with revealed wood beams and wood burner offering a relaxing, cosy environment. In one corner sits a baby grand piano which can be played to ones hearts content.

With 4K Blueray, Wifi and a selection of DVD's & Books mean there is always something to do even if the weather is against you. The open plan lounge-diner leads into the bespoke, country cottage kitchen with terracotta floor tiles. A rear door leads to a secluded, stone-walled courtyard with patio table & chairs for long summer evenings outdoors. The Chapel Room downstairs leads from the lounge area and accommodates couples or 2 singles. With oak beams and stone walls, this room has some unique features including circular window, granite post and Suffolk latch doors. Up the open staircase leading onto a 1st floor landing, the family bathroom benefits from a luxury full hydrotherapy bath with spa jets, lighting and shower wand. Feature walls and beams, again make this a bathroom to spend time in. From the landing, the large master bedroom opens up to reveal the heritage of the Old Stables. Twisted oak beams, vaulted ceilings and complimentary antique furniture make for a truly romantic experience.More

Really nice cottage with lots of quirky little features, hidden down a secluded alley which made it nice and quiet. Great location in the centre of Buckfastleigh. Owner Steve was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

BUCKFASTLEIGH A small market town on the old route between Exeter and Plymouth, Buckfastleigh was a centre for the wool trade for most of its history.

From the station you can catch a steam train on the South Devon Railway heritage line along the Dart Valley to Totnes or the Buckfast Heritage Bus to the Abbey and the town. Next to the station is Buckfast Butterflies and Dartmoor Otters for wi...
