About this Holiday Cottage

One of a selection of charming cottages on a large South Devon working organic dairy farm, Crofters Cottage sits between Plymouth and Kingsbridge, and has spectacular sea views and a woodfired outdoor hot tub.  This delightful old stone cottage is brimming with rustic charm, and features a character spiral staircase, an antique roll top bath and a cosy woodburner.  The property is dog friendly and ideal for couples or older families with free WiFi internet access.  The location is simply stunning - just a short 5 minute stroll through fields to get to the coast path and our private cove (we call it the Blue Lagoon).  Mothecombe Beach and the estuary of the River Erme are only around a 2 mile walk away.
