About this Cottage

History is woven into the fabric of these quietly set rural manor cottages....

Courtlands Manor Estate dates back to the 13th century and was once one of the principal country houses and estates in South Devon. The owners live in the manor house and have lovingly, completely transformed the barns into extremely comfortable holiday cottages. Approached via a sweeping private drive, this cluster of barns nestle in a hidden and sheltered valley with stunning country views across the rolling Devon countryside. Five cottages (refs HTTA, HTTB, HTTC, HTTS & HTTT) are named after the families who once lived and prospered here and the other two (refs KAAS and KAAT) are ideal for a large group or couple respectively. There is many an interesting tale to be told of the inhabitants of Courtlands Manor over the past 700 years. One relates that the Champernownes arrived from Normandy in the 11th century and were one of the largest landowners in the county, and another that the Elliotts lived here in 1438 and the son was the mayor of Plymouth, prior to Sir Francis Drake. Located just over 1 mile from the historic market town of Kingsbridge, Courtlands is set on its own private land and is the ultimate ‘get away from it all’ holiday retreat. In harmony with its surroundings and no passing traffic, wildlife is abundant with pheasants and rabbits, the only near neighbours are the owls, whose ‘hoots’ are often the only disruption of the peace and quiet of the star-filled, dark skies at night. Yet centrally situated between Dartmouth and Salcombe it is in a fantastic location to fully explore this region of South Devon and in particular the South Hams. The bustling riverside town of Dartmouth, so popular with tourists, is full of lovely independent and unusual shops, bistros and eateries and has Dartmouth Naval College and the landmark Dartmouth Castle sitting majestically at the mouth of the estuary. Sea trips along the coast to Paignton can be taken from here, or a steam train back to Buckfastleigh. The fantastic, sweeping coastline stretches from Strete, high on the cliff top, along to the famous Slapton Sands, with its dramatic coast road with the sea on one side and a freshwater lagoon on the other. It has year round appeal, with its wide pebbly beach so popular in the summer and great for fishing in the winter. Visit the little, historic fishing villages dotted along the coast, the lighthouse at Start Point and beyond to East Portlemouth and of course Salcombe. Shop and pub 2 miles, restaurant 2 miles.
